Kakapo Run is a totally-free infinite runner game! This means that there’s no adverts and no in-app purchase. 

Your mission is to get the Kakapo to safety by navigating across New Zealand to Sanctuary Island. And hungry stoats are just one of the challenges that face you as you jump, dodge and slide through forests, shorelines and cities to reach Sanctuary Island.
