    "The Canabalt genre genesis"

    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

    A few quotes about Canabalt:

    "Canabalt is pure genius."

    "It's going to be quite some time before you find something so simple so thrilling again." -Offworld

    "This "daring escape" platformer is simply beautiful and beautifully simple." -Kotaku

    "Canabalt is actually much more intense than you'd assume of a game which requires a single finger to play." -GameSpy

    "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."

    "Fast load times combined with short (yet exciting) game sessions really make for an attractive game to play on a mobile device." -TouchArcade
