Remember Canabalt? The surprisingly addictive, surprisingly pretty one-button platformer that we raved about nearly a month ago? Well, you can now buy a copy of the game for your iPhone or iPod touch.

The browser version is still free, but I've gotta say: I bought it last night, and next to Eliss and iDracula it's the best iPhone game I've yet played. The fast pace and one-button gameplay translate perfectly to Apple's ubiquitous little mobile device: it's perfectly suited for really quick playthroughs, and the simple controls make it one of the least frustrating games available on the system (Rolando, you can go to hell).

Anyway, yeah. As addictive and pretty and fast-paced as ever, only now you have an easy and satisfying way to support the developers. My high score is still in the 10,000 range. Anyone ever figure out if there was any truth to that rumor that if you survived long enough, a strider robot would start chasing you?
