Runners


Infinite runners have their place in gaming. After Canabalt, a seemingly endless stream of 2D endless runners showed up for a piece of the action. After Temple Run, the same happened for behind-the-back 3D runners. Infinity R...


Crystal Dynamics has announced a new mobile runner titled Lara Croft: Relic Run. The name's fittingly nebulous. Is Lara running after relics? Or, is the old-school Lara the running relic, a classic character hearkening back t...

It's rare that I cover mobile games here but I couldn't let Alto's Adventure slide by me. This is pegged as an "endless snowboarding odyssey" with a one-button trick system and 180 goals to best. Other things worth noting be...


It's not that animated breasts are all Combo Queen has going for it. They're just the first thing I noticed clicking around the trailer and ending up on a bouncy idle animation.  The pixel art here is rather lovely...


Funk of Titans is not a very fun game. But Brett Makedonski and I had a lot of fun talking about it.


After hearing about it from iOS users, I was excited late last year when Boson X first came to Android, my mobile platform of choice. A few months later, I finished the six levels included in the Android version and discover...


[Update: Edmund McMillen wrote a blog post to explain that Super Meat Boy Forever uses auto run, but is not an endless runner. So it's more like Bit.Trip Runner than anything. Though there is an endless mode with da...

Sometimes, when I check my email, I find wonderful things like messages from friends and family, beta invites, or announcements that something I ordered has shipped. Sometimes, I find a pile of press releases. Sometimes they'...

Codemasters has stealthily released an endless racer for the App Store. It's called Drive: USA, and it's only available through the Singapore App Store at the moment. It sure looks like a racing game, eh? I do find it a little funny that after so many endless runners, this is the first time I'm seeing one with cars. I mean, it looks ... alright. Eh, it's free, don't complain.


The affable team behind Joe Danger and the exciting, upcoming No Man's Sky had its offices flooded over the holidays. We're talking, "a biblical amount." In fact, the water is apparently still rising as the team, relocated to...


Back in April, we first heard about Sunbreak Games, a studio founded by former Metroid Prime and Halo 4 designer Jason Behr. As a bit of a curveball, Sunbreak's first title would break from Behr's tradition of sci-fi first-pe...

Most of the people I interact with who are into mobile gaming are on iOS, so as an Android user I frequently hear about cool games that I cannot play. Boson X used to fall into that category, as a title that has been availab...


Rayman Jungle Run was a perfect example of how to adapt a console game to a touch interface. It gorgeously preserved the sharp visuals from its console counterpart, and best of all -- it used a control scheme that actually wo...
