The Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! mobile game is now available for both iOS and Android — both ranking number one on their respective marketplaces.

Downloaded over 8 million times on its opening day, Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! is by video game developer KING, the same creators as Candy Crush, and is a free-to-play runner style of game. The game offers a variety of running challenges, including time trials and base building, social features, featuring all the beloved characters including the now-25-year marsupial.

Those looking to relive the PlayStation magic on their mobile phones can experience the game now. To find out what Crash has been up to during his hiatus, Men’s Journal whimsically caught up with the Bandicoot himself.
