"Fantastic... Super-simple, pixel-perfect, great music and sound." - daringfireball.net
"Canabalt is pure genius." -necessarygames.com
Escape the destruction of your city with just one button! The game that popularized the infinite runner genre is back with new game modes and support for every dang phone and tablet thingy!
"This "daring escape" platformer is simply beautiful and beautifully simple." -Kotaku
"It's going to be quite some time before you find something so simple so thrilling again." -Offworld
"Canabalt is actually much more intense than you'd assume of a game which requires a single finger to play." -GameSpy
Play any of the 8 new game modes with one or two players, dash across rooftops with four different runners, or just chase that high score in the classic futile race for survival.
"It's all very lovely and full of poignant subtext. And awesomeness. Canabalt is a prime example of a simple idea executed extremely well." -JayIsGames
"I have never seen a concept so richly and successfully realized in such a simple yet stunningly complete form. Canabalt represents the power and potential of small independent games." -gameinmind.com
"Music is another component that is just perfect - it enhances the strange and unsettling setting of the game and also gives a sense of speed with a hint of hope that quick feet might be the salvation to the horror." -bartsnews.net
ok it's still 64-bit but now the birds aren't dorked sry sry sry
Ratings and Reviews
Retro; with a touch of modern
-Simple and yet polished graphics and the pick-up-and-play nature of this game makes it fun.
-I don't generally care about sound, but the music/sound effects in this game are so immersive it's worth a mention.
-It's based on a free flash game so I don't think we can expect much in terms of contents update - which is unfortunate since a lot could be added; powerups/things to collect, the ability to jump higher if you make consecutives jumps (a bit like some Super Mario games?), levels, a speed indicator, etc.
Overall awesome, not dissapointed in having paid the hefty 3$ pricetag.
Edit: seems like the sound controls aren't working, in the settings App they appear to simply reset to maximum when you launch the game.
I used to play this way back on my old devices. Had to buy again! And new game modes too? Amazing sound design, level design. Very immersive experience despite its grey tones. Manages to tell an apocalyptic story with little context. Brilliant.
2014: I'm glad to see this game is still supported!
2017: I can't believe this game is still supported!
