Very cool, thank you :hug:

Sat down one more time for a proper test cause the previous one was rushed due to lack of free time.

Installed two MEmu instances, one with Android 7.1 (64bit), and the other Android 5.1.

Downloaded all the game versions from 2016 to 2021. Specifically:
1.9.94 (March 16th, 2016)
1.10.97 (June 2nd, 2016)
1.11.106 (October 23rd, 2018) => Couldn't find this one, but it's referenced on the wiki
1.11.110 (November 7th, 2018)
1.11.112 (February 27th, 2019)
1.11.114 (August 6, 2021)

Game versions from 2016 did not work on any Android version I tried. Maybe on 4.4?

Version 1.11.114 kept asking for Desert Ruins and Tibet to be downloaded and that always failed which we know.

.110 and .112 work both on Android 5.1 and 7.1

.110 asks you to download 0Mb for both zones, when you click Download Now, the zones start without a problem.

.112 asks you to download 36Mb for Tibet, 43Mb for Sahara. When you click Download Now, again, both zones start without a problem.

I even saw the "Double Rewards" button in .112, it played an ad and everything I got doubled.

.114 is clearly just broken. There is no need to download any additional files cause everything is included in the data from the get go.

As further proof you can see the map with the first level of Tibet completed in both 5.1 and 7.1 versions of the emulator here
There you can also see the visual differences between the Android versions. These are both the same version of the game (Left 5.1, Right 7.1).

In game they both look the same though

I used XAPKs for all of the above mentioned versions for testing.

[TL;DR]
Just download 1.11.112 version of the game from a trusted source if you want to play this game.

Beat level 120 yesterday...I guess that's it then...

Definitely not complaining, these pay to win games going into thousands of levels is always scummy and actually reaching an end point is nice and it was about the right time too.
Though from the looks of it they intended to add more worlds with "this adventure may not be over"

Even though there is pretty much no story at all in this I gotta admit I really liked it. I never got bored of stylishly dodging, sliding and jumping obsticles while Lara ran full speed it was an absolute treat to look at.
Nothing, unique, nothing admirable but a nice little slice of braindead white knuckle action when the mood happens to take you.

@UroshUchiha:
Thank you very much for testing this so extensively. That gives me hope, that I can actually finish the game now :)

Interesting, that all the files are there and it still asks for a download.
I wonder what's the reasoning behind this. :ponder:

I just saw that Google Play store in the meantime has been swarmed with 1star reviews due to the inability of travelling beyond the Thailand levels. Even the latest patch (released August 6) did not fix it. By now they're clearly aware that something is broken, so maybe the official package might get working again also :)

EDIT:
Just got word from Square Enix support.

Please also be sure to download any updates as they become available on your device.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your patience and understanding.

I guess they discontinued development. The last version was probably a quick hack no one in QA even looked at before publishing it. A shame really. Google should diable the ingame item-store now, because in this broken state it's basically fraudulent.

UroshUchiha 16-09-21 10:24

The new update for Relic Run 1.11.114 was just released with a change log "Fixed the level downloading issues."

andre_costa 16-09-21 18:04

Iím playing on iOS and after a couple minutes the games just freezes and crashes. If someone has a solution, I would be very thankful :o

Strange, I don't see it in my store (yet).

But thanks for the heads-up. Hopefully it'll roll out globally, soon!

EDIT:
Just got the update - and it works! FINALLY! YAY!

bekim 25-09-21 22:00

This game is getting on my nerve but I cant stop playing it... :hea: :o

SuperFrancyBro 19-10-21 05:35

This game is fantastic! :jmp::cln::D

What happened to the awesome music?

I just recently downloaded this again to try it for the first time since it was released years ago - and I remember the music being continuous throughout each run, but now it seems to have been reduced to the main menu and the actual run has no music at all. Is this an improvement? :confused:

Rai 31-12-21 01:53

I've just been playing and I defeated the Trex and as he fell his tail swept out, hit Lara and she died :vlol:. I have never seen that before.

Dennis's Mom 31-12-21 13:38

I do wish they'd update this and Lara Croft Go.

LNSNHGTDS 31-12-21 16:20

I really miss Relic Run. My phone can't seem to be able to run it anymore? It crashes every few minutes.

perryloo 03-01-22 02:23

Unfortunately, Relic Run does my eyes in due to the speed. I can play it for about 15 minutes then have to give up.

Other games like that gave me a headache, like Sonic the Hedgehog which I loved, but it was a fast blur of colour, and even a better game Ratchet and Clank, I loved the game as there was a lot of Si-Fi in it, but it did not love me, I was a wreck by the time I got through a level and had to take an aspirin.

No wonder some games have epilepsy warnings LOL.
At least I can play Tomb Raider games without side effects ;)

CheshireBitch 03-01-22 22:04

it's too bad we never got a 4th level... I remember back then there was a huuuuge demand for it, fans wanted Venice with a boat section !

That would be an excellent idea ! Or I imagined a sea level or a volcanic one.

I reinstall it recently and it's a little fun. However the levels can be reaaaaally long ! I have a problem though, the sounds effects and music don't work that much. Lara's grunts are too low, some sounds are missing and the music starts and then fade away in 20 sec...

Xenomrph 15-09-22 04:15

I've been replaying Relic Run (on level 55 or so), I really miss the in-level music, I don't know why they changed that so the music fades out.

CheshireBitch 15-09-22 16:07

I think itís just bugs because IOS keeps growing and the game is not updated anymoreÖ
Itís too bad every TR app is left on the side because theyíre really great phone gameÖ.

I uninstalled years ago. I remember I had 3 stars on every level, or whatever the single runs are called. What you call level (theme, area), I remember there were 3. So they never added a 4th one eh. Shame but at least I don't need to reinstall it.

My progress file should be somewhere in my external drive, I wonder if it would work if I installed and copied it into Android data folder somewhere.

It should work. That's how I tested if they fixed the issue where the game failed to download new "zones" or whatever was the bug a little while ago.
Someone uploaded their save file, I put it on my device and had their progress with all unlocks.

If you have everything unlocked, feel free to share your save file :D
The save file should be called "gameprogress.sav"

Searching the forum by that filename I actually managed to find a comment from you and in another thread

MuruCoder 22-12-22 16:19

Yeah but it's been 3-4 years. I hope there isn't a version difference making the game think it's corrupted.

I remember having all the stars but not all unlocks sadly. I think some required gems and they were getting scarce so I didn't bother.

UroshUchiha 22-12-22 16:39

I don't think anything changed. Last year someone shared their save file in some thread when we were testing the bug that the game had about failing do download maps after the first area. I used someones save to get access to area 2 and 3.

Rai 22-12-22 17:26

So my game stopped giving out daily rewards and the timed rewards. Seems odd. The game works fine otherwise.

MuruCoder 24-12-22 11:42

I ended up checking the game today and probably was gonna install but guess what... This app won't work with my device... :mad:

Why? Did they restrict some countries or phones? LCGO can be installed and many other better looking, heavier games. Y u do dis Devs...

Anyway, maybe later.

malferink 10-02-23 11:30

I think the playerbase is pretty much dead for this game, but I'll still try nonetheless :o

I've finished this game in the past but recently started a new game on my iPhone 13 and when I finally completed the jungle part, I couldn't access the desert. I did unlock it, Lara is standing on the map in the desert part, but whenever I try to start the first level it automatically starts loading the Thailand area again and Lara is just stuck on the map screen (desert area)

Any fixes for this? I'm not familiair with iPhones at all in general so any tips are greatly appreciated. (honestly worst decision in my life to go from Android to iPhone but that's another story)

I think the game is so old it won't work properly on new phones. It started like a couple years ago with the sounds messing up. I think it's only going to get worse. I think without an update for the game it will "die" soon. And I don't think there's a team anymore to work on it so...
Best bet is to get the apk file and play it on an emulator on PC that runs an old version of android I guess ?
