Canabalt Review

Run for your life…”  says it all. The premise is simple. You play as a guy who is running across roof tops attempting to escape from some kind of alien invasion that is constantly taking place in the background scenery. If he even tumbles into a crate or chair, he loses a little speed but keeps going. That speed loss, though, can prove catastrophic when he reaches a gap that is suddenly too wide to cross without adequate velocity.

I played the game in the PS3 and I loved it every moment of it. One button input doesn’t mean the game is easy. Instead it can get very serious extremely fast. There is a lot of things happening in the background. The city scape is on fire, there is a machine that looks like a AT-AT from Star Wars. Also from time to time something like a satellite dish falls from the sky and if it touches you, your screen goes white until you fall to your death.

The retro style is very cool. Also the soundtrack is fantastic, it creates the perfect atmosphere. The only thing this game lacked is a leaderboard. I managed to get 8450 m before falling to death, but my friend can’t see it and try to beat it.

All in all, Beatshapers did an awesome job with this game. For a little price you get an awesome game. You should definitely buy it.


9.5/10
