Canabalt runs away to PSN


7:30 PM on 03.16.2012



I don't know why running away from the destruction of an entire city is compelling, but it is. Just play Canabalt. Just before I wrote this up, I thought it would be a good time to play it for a couple of minutes. Half an hour later I was still jumping across buildings and getting blown to smithereens. Despite the manic pace of the game, I still spared a thought for the rest of the soon to be eviscerated city. The fleeing hero is dressed in what appears to be a suit, was he at work when this catastrophe began? What of his colleagues? I should have probably spent more time looking where I was going, though. I've died a lot.

The Flash/iOS game has now made its way to PSN and us lucky Europeans can pick it up for £1.74. You less lucky Americans can get it in a couple of weeks, or play the flash game now. Actually that's exactly what you should do. Play it. Now.
