Retro platformer that will have you running for the psyche ward. As a robot in space, your life is at stake! Speed through a world of challenging obstacles while jumping your way to safety. Collect space jewels and unlock secret characters.
The goal is straightforward: run for as long as you can! After all, you’re suppose to be a slick runner. This game is deceptively simple: it’s easy to pick up, but difficult to master. Make the wrong move, and you’re dead. Jump too early or late and you’ll explode! Run into the wall and you’ll blow up!
Use your jumping abilities to hop onto platforms while racing across a dangerous field brimming with blocks and fatal obstacles. Run your way through a never ending path of spikes and hurdles that will have you gripping your phone. Leap over blocks, spring onto platforms, and hop over nerve-racking spikes all the while steering clear of hanging dangers.
You’re a robot living in a world overcrowded with potential hazards. Sprint across the screen towards uncertainty. With every hop, you’ll notice eerie shadows moving in the background according to your physical location. If you’re interested in playing as a different character, you’re in luck because unlocking characters is one of the game’s highlighted features.

Q&A with Developer Nathan Pope:
What does your app do?
Slick Runner is a retro-inspired infinite runner game. Your main objectives are to avoid obstacles and collect currency.
What is unique about your app?
There are loads of unlockable characters, unique sounds, and a cool retro soundtrack.
Why should someone download Slick Runner rather than something else?
Slick Runer is free to play. It’s fun unlocking characters (total of 20) because you don’t know what you’re going to get. They are displayed with a question mark so it’s always a surprise.
What genre is it?
Retro arcade platformer.
How does the gameplay work?
Slick runner moves you automatically, you jump and you learn how to avoid obstacles as you go along. You can master the art of jumping the more you play.
What are the best features?
It's super fun to play while remaining challenging. Characters are pretty cool looking and it’s fun unlocking them.
Where’s the challenge?
The challenge is avoiding the obstacles and collecting the space jewels. Duh.
Why is it better than the next game?
It's difficult, but fair. But watch out because collecting coins is very addictive.
