App description: Polara is a new take on the free-runner platformer that incorporates traditional challenging gameplay with color-switching strategy. Utilize color coded speed ramps, launching pads, gravity waves, hex bombs, and energy platforms to survive as you escape the clutches of an evil security system hell bent on destroying all those that oppose. Immerse yourself in the world of Agent Lara, a defense system special agent, that finds herself between a massive world power and the sympathies of a rebel cause. Help her down the path of death defying obstacles to find the truth behind her past, present and future.

If you want an innovative game that gets your heart pumping and brings a smile to your face then look no further. Many who've tried have discovered the brilliance behind the level design in this game. We challenge you to try Polara and not get pulled into the free flowing but always changing gameplay. Complexity in simplicity.

Take my word for it that this game is tough...like really. You're gonna have to balance your brains to play this well.

Btw, why is this classified as a runner? Shouldn't it also be classified as a platformer? I feel its a platformer.

Been waiting for something like this since Ubisoft's Outland was only released on consoles.
Looks like a great polarity/gravity/Ikaruga platformer.

To me a platformer is any game where you can stop and go left/right and take your time. A runner is a game where the character constantly moves and you cant stop them apart from move up/down/jump/fire etc.

When i think of platformers i think of Manic Miner, Mario Land, Sonic etc.

I'm not much of a console gamer, but I just checked out some gameplay footage of Outland and boy must I say I'm impressed. Hopefully that comes to mobile sometime soon.
