Mirror Runners is a puzzle game where your goal is to guide two runners onto their respective green platforms. Sounds simple, except that they move in unison - even though their respective platforms, or the obstacles in their way, do not always line up. Each level requires a different way of thinking to separate the two runners, which encourages cognitive flexibility. This is not a game that ever feels repetitive! Pay attention because level names will give you a hint towards the solution for each level. Some levels will require repeated attempts and some trial and error to see what works, and will reward persistent players who keep their eyes on the goal.
This game can be challenging for players not used to thinking of out-of-the-box solutions, so they might need some support until they get the hang of it. However, solutions are not random at all, so with persistence most players will be able to figure it out. There is some blood that sprays when a runner runs into spikes, which might bother sensitive players, but otherwise the game is not violent at all.
