Is this by any chance a pseudo-running game? If so, i'll be diving.

Looks like a remake of the old Skyroads game (DOS I think).

Too bad it's 4th-gen only.

Yep, looks like Skyroads alright.

I wanna get it, but this whole SD/HD thing is annoying me. I'm presuming the HD version will work on iPhone 4, but it's not optimized, right? Asking because I don't wanna double dip for this if I end up getting an iPad 3 down the line. :/

Grab the HD Version. It should run fine on the iPhone 4 as far as I can tell you.

I can confirm that the HD version works fine on iPhone 4.

Shame this isn't getting attention. You'd think more people loved Skyroads back in the day.

Pretty much what you see in Sanuku's video is what you get. Let's just say if you have fond memories of SkyRoads, then this is for you. Imagine it as a hardcore 3D platformer. There's no fuel conservation like in SkyRoads, but instead there's the whole "grab 3 orbs" aspect of it, which gives the game an even tougher challenge as well as a reason to replay levels. It's pretty great. Nice to see that a 19 year old concept still feels fresh after all these years.
