As you move through the levels in the game, the speed of the game increases.

Run for Food
This is a fast paced children game, where you need to help different hungry animals (like hen, rabbit, wolf, lion) to eat their right food. You can TOUCH the screen to jump the animal to catch the right food (e.g. rabbit should jump to eat carrots). There will be different obstacles coming on the way – like a crocodile coming out of puddle to eat the running animal, stones, bomb, etc – BEWARE OF THEM. As you move forward in levels, the speed of the game increases – animals run faster and the obstacles also come faster. Through this game you will learn the food habits of different animals and the food chain (i.e. plants are eaten by rabbit, who gets eaten by wolf, who gets eaten by lion).
