Game Description

Here comes the web browser HTML5 running game of the famous Mexican cactus, the Saguaro. In this exciting online hyper casual racing game, the players need to help the native Mexican cactus run along the desert without colliding with any balloons in the way.

However, there will be power-ups in the form of toffees which will come after each brief interval which the players can collect to empower the running cactus. Apart from these basic gameplay dynamics, Saguaro follows a straightforward approach where the players can get into the action right away without lots of options appearing on-screen.

So, let us learn how to play this exciting hyper casual HTML5 running game and some of the essentials for you to get up and go.


How to Play Saguaro


Earning XP & Leveling Up

To score XP points, the players must need to keep their cactus running as long as it reaches the end of the round. The longer your cactus runs, the more score you will make. But do not think that it will be an easier course to run; the cactus will run in an up-and-down way and out of nowhere you will encounter balloons which you must avoid.

A maximum of four hits and your cactus will be gone. And so, as the race continues forward, the in-game difficulty will also continue to increase. So, you must keep your Saguaro running tall and strong to win and proceed to new rounds.


Playing Environment

As we mentioned above, the game is straightforward to play. On the main screen, players will see only two options, a sound on/off and a play button to start the game. There are no other options to distract the players from direct gameplay.

Also, this web browser hyper casual arcade running game offers a third-person view perspective on an in-game screen dimension of 720×1280. Additionally, the game’s screen has a portrait orientation which is great for mobile gamers since the game is supported on mobile web browsers as well.



Saguaro io offers beautiful 3D graphics in bright and shiny PNG-style format. The color schemes used are also diverse and incorporate special effects to add more flavor to an already great graphical interface.



There are no customizations available in this online hyper casual arcade game.


Weapons & Health

There are also no weapons available in Saguaro as well as no health bar present. However, the player must be cautious when running because a collision with the balloons will slowly take away the life of your Mexican cactus. So, four hits, and your cactus is gone!
