Good game, but c’mon guys
This game makes me feel a lot of nostalgia. I would play it on my dad’s iPad in the mornings, the music was catchy, it was satisfying to collect gold medals and Grimmy Idols. However, there’s a huge problem and I know I’m not the only one who’s experienced this. After I spent hours collecting skullies to buy the Danger Caves map, I collected all the Grimmy Idols so I could try out the Iron after avatar. I selected it, selected survival mode, and then it crashed instantly, before the game started. I didn’t think much of it and I pulled the game up again, changed my avatar selection because I thought that was the only problem, but it crashed yet again. I can’t get on adventure or survival without the game crashing as it loads, even if I don’t have the Iron Fred avatar selected. I tried to look up how to troubleshoot this problem, but there were no results, so I thought I was the only one. Upon reading the reviews and learning that this has been happening for quite a while, it’s an even bigger problem than I thought. Aside from Falling Fred (which isn’t even available for the device version I’m using) none of your other games give me that same amount of satisfaction and nostalgia as Running Fred. C’mon guys, you gotta get this fixed.

We need a sequel
Currently, the newest game you guys at Dedalord have made is football Fred, and I kind of find it as an unoriginal game. I was really hoping that you make a sequel to this game, because I’m sure that would probably be your mostly downloaded game, and because I also love this game, but can’t play it due to it crashing every time I start playing it. I hope you read this, Dedalord, because I think it will be a great idea for a new game to start working on. I know for sure I would love a sequel to running fred. Also, make sure gameplay stays exactly like this one, because I don’t want a clicker or a sports-related title, just running fred, but improved and better to play.

Amazing game but please update and fix the issues.
I loved this game for so long and it’s truly amazing and it’s still amazing I used to play it all the time On my kindle fire tablet the best times of my life. Always waking up in the morning and playing running Fred with my brother the best time ever. Anyways many years pass by and I still play it although I got it on my iPhone and played it for a long time but one problem was when I unlocked the character “Iron Fred” I used him before and he’s pretty cool but on iOS and since it hasn’t been updated for a while the game has been crashing and sending me to my home screen. I thought it was a one time thing and I kept on trying and waiting till later and a few days to check if it works but it does not at all. For this reason millions of players cannot play the game. Deadalord, please I hope you can at least update for fix this problem. It won’t let me play the game what so ever I want to keep playing it and I really hope you can fix it.

Iron Fred Glitch
This game is really good! I always used to play it when I was very younger, and I downloaded it again just because I thought it would be cool. The game was going great until I downloaded the character “Iron Fred”. For some reason, I can not get into adventure mode, survival mode, or any mode when I unlocked the character. I can’t get in even when I am not using the character. Please fix this issue, because this game is amazing to play. I do not want to stop playing it. I also do not want to uninstall and reinstall the game because all of my progress will be gone. Edit: So it’s been a couple of months later and it still doesn’t work. I tried uninstalling and installing again but the game keeps my progress, which means I still have the Iron Fred, which means that I STILL can’t play. Can you please fix this glitch, there are many fans of your game who can’t play because of it. I really want to play this game because I love it sooo much, but I can’t. If you can’t fix the glitch, can you or somebody help me delete my progress at least so I can play. Your fans including me have been patient.

7 years ago, What what123445
Oh back in 2012 or 2013 me and my two sisters would all play this game on our iPads, we would have so much fun on the car trip each playing it I forgot about this game for a while but the other day were were all in the car again and playing the same game, I got deja vu and remembered when we used to play this game, I asked my sister "what was that game with the guy that ran around in that dungeon or something?" She said " ohhh ya, I think it was called running Fred." This set me on my quest to find this game and write this review to tell you that this game has sentimental value and made me so happy when I saw it was still here on the AppStore, thanks for making this game, you inadvertently made me this very fond memory.

Problem with ads
Great game really love it. I have been playing this game since the beginning and have unlocked everything there is and have gotten big high scores on the endless runs. But now you have added ads which I hate because I get annoyed by them. Well I have recently gotten the game on my phone and now every time an ad pops up it then makes “Fred” go to the left and then fall to his death or get killed by an obstacle. Also I can’t get all of my purchases transferred to my phone. So it would be nice if you if you could tell me how to get my purchases transferred to my phone and hopefully it will get rid of the ads.

This game is awesome
I played this game for almost 3 or 4 years and it’s really cool my friend was playing it on the computer and it looked really cool and I looked at the title of the game and I played it on my computer then I realized that this game was the best game I ever played and then I downloaded this on my phone and it is one of the best games I ever played and when a few years went by I started to play other Fred games like skiing Fred,clicker Fred, football Fred and those games was awesome and I still play it till this day thank you fo this game and I hope more people play this game cause it is really a good game and I think you should try it

Blocking me from playing the game
I absolutely love this game and always play this game when I want to play a game on my phone but recently I unlocked a character called Iron Fred. After I was able to unlock him with 20 grimmy idols, I wanted to try him because I thought that he would be like the jet pack Fred. But, when I pressed the survival mode icon, it sent me back to my home screen. I thought it was just going to be that one time but, when I kept trying again, it couldn’t work even with adventure mode and challenge mode. Can y’all fix this problem, I just want to keep playing this game.

Iron Fred!
Even after the new update which was supposed to fix some bugs(and tell us that hey we still care about this game) and tell us that area 51 is in developement now,the game still has bugs, after unlocking Iron Fred my game would crash everytime i tried playing anything(even without having iron fred equipped). Now more bugs are added, after some time my game starts crashing (this is before unlocking iron fred) so this update gave me more bugs.

A True Fred Fan
I have been playing this game now for many years (at least 4+)and I must say that this is a splendid game to spend hours on and it’s great to get achievements on different maps in the adventure Mode. Might of had my ups and downs with the game such as when you used to be able to play effortlessly to watching just too many ads in between game play to it just straight up crashing on you (in the pass; this problem is eliminated) I recommend this game to anyone with a sick twisted desired individuals who love gore and violence in their games with a hint of fear as well.

Very nostalgic but COMPLETELY dead
This game will never get the Sektor 51 update and I remember that being teased back in 2012 when I played this on my IPod. The very infrequent updates have ALL made the game worse little by little, until it has been morphed into the unpolished mess it is today. The endless cave level literally has impossible obstacles that you fall right through, the heads up display of Fred had all the gore removed (which WAS the main selling point of the game), the ragdoll physics have Fred’s body erratically fling around at a trillion mph and way more little cracks at the seams that just weren’t there before. Hate to leave a bad review on a game I loved so much, but it deserves it. FIX THIS GAME!!

Good game BUT
Great game always loved playing it in high school but for some reason as soon as you make the purchase of the 3rd world the game just crashes everytime you try to play it no matter what you try to play survival, endless doesn’t matter it will just crash. I even tried to delete it and redownload it but nothing worked. And I unlocked all the skullie statues to get iron Fred and to my surprise that one didn’t work either as soon as you try to use iron Fred the game will crash. It’s like what’s the use of spending money on the game if you can’t play it. Please fix this problem

I’ve played your app in the past on my old iPhone and it was great! Now I want to download it on my iPhone X. It downloads without a problem, but I can’t actually “play” the game... I can only buy characters, and play the tutorial. What’s wrong with the app... is it because I have an IPhone X? I’ve tried turning my phone off, re-downloading it, and even buying a new character... but nothing... I still have the same account that I used when I first played it, so what is the problem? Please respond? :(

Pretty Ok
The app is very attention getting which free me to play i played all of it even bought the other maps n stuff and it was pretty good the issue with this game is that it is relying heavily on the fact you need to buy money in order to get the other levels which is kinda redundant when you consider you do not make enough money to on each level to the point you have to constantly play the game until you miraculously gain 2,000+ to get the other map and another issue is that tbh the game isnt really all that i love the gore n the concept the issue is the value system is not good at all.

Amazing game, one thing tho
I was seeing if this game finally got fixed after 3 years and I was surprised that it did, I installed it and I saw everything I had, the only problem is when grabbing a mystery box, the item that is given isn’t given, I got a resurrection from one and it didn’t show up when I lost all my lives, this game has always been nostalgic for me but please fix the mystery boxes.

Hoping for a remaster
Running Fred is an amazing game and I used to play it a lot as a kid, coming back to the game now fills me with nostalgia and joy, however it does eventually get boring and Skiing Fred (another game I played as a kid) isn’t available in my region. I hope someday they remaster Running Fred so I can enjoy a more modern version of the game and see how far the game devs skills have come!

Mystery Box Glitch
Every time I get a mystery box and complete the level I don’t get the reward. Like one time I got a box and got a 30% discount for the day but nothing happened. I got 2 more so I basically had a 90% discount. Same with everything else like shields safety spring etc. Please fix the glitch Dedalord. I also got all the grimmy idols to get Iron Fred and every time I booted up the game it kicked me out.

Used to love it. Tried again and controls are broken
I played this year's ago and loved it. Hated the iPod. Got stuck with a iPhone for work and downloaded this on the iPhone 8. The controls are inverted. There's no up and down support for when falling so I miss the padding most times due to always falling forward. To top it off... I'll start the run and immediately it flips the screen so that everything is upside-down. I flip it right side up and die in the process. Then it flips again when I start the next run...

Love this game but it crashes
I have downloaded and deleted this game 6 times over the last two years. I deleted it because every time I tried to enter a level, the game would crash and throw me back to my home screen. Literally throws me completely out of the game. I keep downloading it because the game is SO FUN, but I’m frustrated. I’ve spent money on this game (which I NEVER DO). Please fix, I see that I’m not the only one with this issue.

Good but why so pricy and purchase
This game is really fun and should get more attention,but why is danger caves so expensive but cheaper on Poki some people are gonna buy their way to danger caves. Are y’all wanting us to buy skullies ? I also bought value pack 3 but I only got 4,000 skullies. I tried to restore purchase but I still didn’t get rocket Fred

Good game and all but...
The gsme is great, but gamepads would be funner, with left and right button on the left, and the jump button on the right. Gamepads can be adjusted in settings or added to the screen. I feel like that would make the game feel a lot more better

Amazing game buuuut small catch
It’s great and all but there’s a small problem in when you collect a mystery box and then finish the level to earn the box, whatever you get a prize in the box, like power ups, skills, it doesn’t give it to you, that’s why I’m rating this game 4 stars, if the developer fix that bug, I’ll gladly update this into a 5 star👌

Good game but still bad
The game is good I like all the content they put in this game but I feel the developers have given up on this game and all of there games. I also still want endless sector 51 to release. Another thing I want to add is that the game doesn’t let me play any more and stops working whenever you unlock iron Fred. So if the devs can see this review and try to bring back this game that will be very awesome, let’s make this game great again.

Great, but one fatal flaw
Selecting Iron Fred after collecting all grimmy idols crashes the game, and will (from what I can tell) crash the game whenever trying to play endless mode playing with the outfit or not. This is an awesome game and I love to comeback to it every now and then, but that isssue really needs to get fixed.

Unplayable bc of Ads
What happened? Seriously, what happened? I used to love this game a few years ago and thought I’d reinstall it for some nostalgia only to find out that the game is nearly unplayable due to the ungodly amount of inescapable advertisements thrown in your face after EVERYTHING. Even at the menu the second you tap an option it throws an ad in your face that you can’t skip. Load up game, ad. Play a level, ad. Return to menu, ad. This is ridiculous

Unplayable now
I like this game a lot and played it for a long time, even going as far as buying the extra levels and skylines. However after I unlocked the iron man suit the game has crashed with everything I try to do. Regret spending money on this great game that I can’t even play anymore. Without this problem I’d give it 4 or 5 stars but I can’t even play now. With the last update being like 10 months ago I don’t expect this to get fixed.
