You may have thought the most famous piece of hair in the gaming scene was that which belongs to Shantae; half-genie. You’d be right too, but our purple-haired heroine has got a bit of competition as Glam arrives on the scene in Glam’s Incredible Run: Escape from Dukha.

Glam’s Incredible Run: Escape from Dukha is priced at £4.19 from the Xbox Store and will see you helping Glam resuce her mother from danger. You see, it’s her who has been held captive by an evil witch, as they hope to stop the joint mother-daughter powers from becoming one.
