30km:Dejection-induced Canabalt fan-art

I don't own an iPhone. If I did, I'd have Canabalt on it. This is because I'm pretty much playing it daily in HD, and I'd like to bring with me the leaping, single-button experience, if I ever happen to be detached from my desktop. I thought I'd reached the crowning height of my skills when I got past the 12,000m mark, when to my horror, I found this. Scores at over 30,000m? What the...?!



Having seen those figures, I chose to expend my dejection on some drawing, by enlarging the game's pint-sized pixelated parkour protagonist, and giving him a bit more life. It was an interesting exercise, since it made me think of the game's premise, about who the escapee was and what those robot-things in the background were doing to the city. Not that that stuff really matters, but at least I could rationalise a purpose for his insane jumping madness, and that it wasn't just about chasing high scores that are like, unchaseable.
