Canabalt HD is the remastered original platform action game which gave its name to the genre
Lots of Android games are Canabalt-like games, only one is Canabalt itself: Canabalt HD. It has been remastered to let you choose between classic 2D artwork or new 3D artwork. No matter the time since its first release, it's still such as addictive as it used to be. It isn't a coincidence that it became a genre by itself.
Canabalt HD is a platform action game in which a man is running over buildings. The purpose is keeping the guy running by jumping gaps, avoiding obstacles and get as far as you can. Yes, through endless levels that are randomly generated. If you fall down the cliff you'll have to start again, if you hit an obstacle the guy slows down. Although the distance of the gaps depends on the running speed, so if you fall down it's not because the running speed but that you jumped ahead of time.
And that's it, simple retro-graphics and simple gameplay and, however, as addictive as always. For nostalgics and newbies, this game is timeless
Fully supports all Android devices and GoogleTV, plus gamepads!
PERMISSIONS: External storage and system settings are used to allow the saving of the music as a ringtone (if you'd like)!

Amazing game! The music is so perfectly tailored to this, just awesome.
I remember playing this year's ago when it was new on my iPod touch. Glad to have found it again!
Solid fun. Great challenge
This one button game helped start the endless running boom that we've all been seeing lately. Also, the music is amazing. Make sure you can hear it!
Game will often stop responding to screen taps and physical button presses during gameplay, long enough for several screen taps or button presses to be ignored. Severely frustrating.
