    Endless Replayability

    After you have completed the story mode on Normal you will unlock both Hard Mode as well as Endless Mode.

    Hard Mode is for players that enjoy a challenge and want to earn the Hard Core achievement. Players can expect faster paced gameplay, additional boss attacks and even more obstacles to avoid.

    For players that want to continue their journey through Once Upon a Runner, Endless Mode provides infinite replay value. Backgrounds and obstacles will change seamlessly the longer players are alive. Of course the further players run, the harder it will be to make it through unscathed.
