"Fantastic... Super-simple, pixel-perfect, great music and sound." -
"Canabalt is pure genius."
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."

"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."

Editors' Notes

Race through a collapsing city in a game that helped launch the infinite runner genre. From its gorgeous music to its searing imagery — exploding windows, falling buildings — Canabalt overflows with style and atmosphere. Surviving even a single minute requires split-second reflexes and a whole lot of luck. Plus, after years of updates — including all-new modes like shared-screen multiplayer — this already epic game has been polished to perfection.

Best app ever!!!

This is the best app I've ever purchased from the app store, it is completely worth the $4 price tag and would have payed more if I had to. Definite buy, no question! Should be No.1 in the app store! It's much better than doodle jump.

Only one difficulty setting - Very Hard

Hard to avoid the rockets, can't see them coming and only a split second to react. And sometimes impossible to know if you should slow down (hit the boxes) or speed up - until you see the next building - by which time you've gone splat against a wall.

Recommended for those with super quick reflexes. I think I'm too slow for this.
