    "Running toward the screen" here refers to sequences in a game that are designed to challenge the player by making their character run toward the screen. The player typically must react quickly to obstacles that emerge from the bottom of the screen while some pursuing enemy or danger prevents them from stopping or slowing down.

    It is also known as "Bandicooting" for its popularization in the Crash Bandicoot series.
