Go To
Runaway 2: The Dream of the Turtle was published by Focus Home Interactive SAS, developed by Péndulo Studios, S.L., and released in 2006.

At the end of Runaway: A Road Adventure, Brian and Gina finally had the time to be together on a tropical island called Mala, but the good times don't last long. One day they decide to go on a trip and fly over the island in a plane. Everything goes well until the engines suddenly catch fire and the plane makes his way down. Since there is only one parachute, Brian gives it to Gina and throws her out the plane. Brian survives the crash but he now has to find Gina once again.

His search in this 2D adventure takes him around the globe even to the icy regions of Alaska. Along the way the player will have to solve many riddles for which they will need to talk to people or find items scattered around in the environments. The player will also meet old friends from Runaway: A Road Adventure such as the hacker Sushi Douglas and many new characters are introduced as well.


Needs Wiki Magic Love.

This Video Game contains examples of:

  • Alliterative Name: Brian Basco.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Joshua, who has Japanese ancestry.
  • Black and Nerdy: Proffessor Pierre Pignon.
    • Also, Rutger, who is Jamaican.
  • Book Dumb: Sybverted with Brian, who looks like one, but in fact is an Ivy League-graduated physicist.
  • Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys: Inverted. When Brian comes to Colonel, while being disguised as African-French Pierre Pingong, Colonel starts lecturing him, about how many France had great generals: Napoleon Bonaparte, Julius Caesar and Don Quixote.
  • Colonel Kilgore: Colonel, Played for Laughs.
  • Determinator: Brian Basco will stop at nothing to find Gina.
  • Genius Bruiser: Brian, who has a sharp mind and body-builder physique.
  • Gonk: Joshua, who even doesn't look like an excact human.
  • Jerkass:
    • Archibald is a HUGE one.
    • Joshua also counts, but he acts like one due to lack of social skills and childish selfishness, rather than actually nasty personality.
  • Nerd:
    • Averted. Brian Basco is not so nerdy by this game.
    • Joshua, however, exaggerates this trope.
  • I'm a Man; I Can't Help It: Every man around Lokelani. Brian too, though, in his defence, he feels guilt for Gina after sleeping with Lokelani.
  • Spy Catsuit: Tarantula wears one. Lampshaded by Brian: when he briefly sees her in military camp, he thinks that Colonel is some kind of fetishist.
  • Toilet Humour: Few times, but even then, it's hilarious.


How well does it match the trope?
