Canabalt-like games are auto-runner in which the player has to make the character jump, roll and catch items and bring it as further as he/she can. That's Doodle Run gameplay: the character and the environment are hand-drawn doodles over a notebook sheet background. Your purpose is to avoid obstacles (nuclear bomb warheads, tanks, army jeep, canons...) while catching as many crayons as you can to color the background city (SF). You have to tap the right button to make it jump or left-button to make it roll.
Hand-drawn 2D graphics are simple but cute. Controls are intuitive. You can share your best marks on online leaderboards provided by Scoreloop. Doodle Run is a challenging timewaster. However, like other games under that "tag", it can get boring after a while. Anyway, recommendable.
