Ragdoll Runners is a physics-based Track and Field game where you control independently the two legs of an athlete to compete in 8 events of different types: sprint, long jump, triple jump, hurdles.

You run with two keys: one key per leg. So you cannot count on pounding your keyboard to achieve victory like in most athletics games. You require good timing and mental strength.

At first, you run and jump in a disjointed fashion, causing funny situations. However, the better you get, the more your actions resemble those of true champions and it becomes very rewarding.

A third key allows to lean forward on certain occasions: to finish a sprint, a jump, or to jump over a hurdle.Game Modes
  • Solo: compete against increasingly strong opponents and become a champion in each event.
  • Splitscreen: play against 3 friends on the same computer (gamepad supported), like in this hilarious video.
  • Online
    • Confront the world record and your friends' records.
    • Challenge mode: compete against increasingly strong records from the leaderboards and become a concurrent for other players.
    • Daily Contest : experience the stress of competition with a limited number of attempts each day. Do your best in each event to score the most points in the Octathlon.

You can try the web demo!

Note: in case it's not obvious, this game is very different from QWOP.

Ragdoll Runners reviews and comments

Translated by

Product received for free a game that looks does not pay a mine, and yet requires a lot of skills... But it also offers a system quite pushed and very well done scoring! I explain: you play while connected to the Internet (logic is in 2016), and well you can not only see the scores of your friends, but people from around the world on the Board! And this for every discipline. Better yet, you can at any moment see the replay of each of its people... For example, if you have made a nice long jump, compare it immediately to the best jump of your buddy, and the one of the world record holder! Great So no, it's not a simple game or click left, right to run... The timing is hyper demanding not to fly like a pigeon, and even if of course one can believe in a game a little "nawak" given the figures and stunts that the gameplay causes, it is a relatively complex and subtle game. In short, quite fun but especially picky and rewarding when you manage to make beautiful results.

Product received for free the skill and timing are the most important points of Ragdoll runners. Unlike the Athletics games in the Olympics series here it's not about stuffing the keys on your gamepad or keyboard, but having the perfect timing to make your athlete run. Releasing the key a little too quickly will cause you to lose speed or ruin your sprinter's ritme. Ragdoll runners offers 8 playable disciplines with keyboard or gamepad. Race = 10m course = 30m stroke = 60M stroke = 100m jump in length triple jump race = 60M hurdles course = 110m hurdles a solo mode admittedly Basic, but allows you not to take your head to do better than another, it will give you all times medals that will estimate your game level from 1 to 15 medailles. Collect the 15 medals and you will be ready to participate in the real Olympics. His daily contest mode is well thought out and his ticket system allows not to abuse good things and gives the chance to make good scores in octathlon 8 disciplines. By discipline you will be given a limited number of tickets per day once the tickets used you will have to wait for the next competition:) Its multiplayer mode that is not really one, will give you the opportunity to compete with the best athletes of Ragdoll runners by downloading replays and try to do better. In addition to slowing down your opponents, they also allow you to analyze how they did to get the best scores. Next to it you will also be able to measure yourself to your friends STEAM who own the game and as say above download their replays. In short a good game that will allow you and your friends to have fun in split screen and in asynchronous multiplayer and have a good evening during the Olympics and even after:D
