Play as up-and-coming marathon runner, Amelia, whose recent wins have attracted the attention of the reigning running champion. The champ doesn't want to be outdone, so she has sent her henchmen to slow you down!
Amelia vs. the Marathon is a linear, replayable adventure in which you must dodge obstacles and defeat a sequence of characters as fast as possible to get the best marathon time. Battles are short, turn-based fights with timing mini-games that determine the power of your attacks. Between the battles, successfully dodge obstacles to regain your lost speed and stamina. Once you’re able to beat all six bosses and cross the finish line, start over again and try to beat your best time using the skills and strategies you have learned.
The game features a local leaderboard which allows you compete with members of your household, or attempt to beat your previous times.
The combat is non-violent, and consists mostly of hitting people with hats, shaking the ground to create shockwaves, or getting hit by objects like pizza and cake. The game should be suitable for most players.
