    "Deep in the dark"

    Bulkypix's Pénombre gives a new touch to the endless running genre. A creepy one.

    A lonely dark forest full of dangers and only inhabited by wolves, rats, bats and other nightly creatures. That's the scenery. Dare to continue?

    You embody a young sorcerer on his way to become a master. To achieve it, you must survive long enough in this creepy forest. Run, jump, dodge obstacles, fly and launch spells. Collect souls, bubbles and potions. Purchase spells from the in-app shop. But, above all, long as last as you can.

    As you progress, you'll be unlocking achievements and setting news records. I'm missing global leaderboards to submit best marks and compete against players from all around the world though.

    No complaints about graphics. Rather the opposite: Pénombre features an excellent artwork despite its simplicity. Background music and sound effects are realistic and enhance the gaming experience.

    In a nutshell, a well-developed endless runner. If you are a fan of this genre... What are you waiting for? Click download!

    Journey into the enchanted land of Pénombre where witches, ghosts and other
    creatures meet in this endless runner game.

    When our heroine Umbra stepped out of her house to find new spells, she never thought she'll get lost in the Petit Woods.
    Now, all creatures she had befriended have turned on each other as Pénombre descends onto the land.
    Umbra must travel across 7 kingdoms filled with treacherous traps and dangerous creatures to find her way back home.
    But she has many spells left in her book to help in her journey.
    After all, she is quite a witch herself...

    Pénombre is an endless side-scroller that combines the visuals of genre-defining classics with the accessibility of great arcade games.

    Key Features

    Fast-Paced Gameplay: Face traps and creatures that will continually test your reflexes. Pénombre has become a sinister environment, with darkness creeping up on you.
    Avoid getting hurt or shadows will impair Umbra's vision, making it harder to avoid the dangerous birds and fierce creatures that populate your journey.

    Magic Spells: Upgrade Umbra's spells and gain incredible magic powers.

    Unlock new levels and many, many quests: unlock new locations by completing previous levels, unlock special levels where Umbra can fly on her broom, and complete over 50 quests to earn even more souls.

    Stay alive and help Umbra get safely back home from either your mobile or tablet!
