This game is so fast, it has a slow-motion feature just so you see what you're doing! Meet Karate Girl, out for revenge against those who stole her father's Humpterdink sword. Frantically steer her through the crook's mansion with the goal to destroy as many valuables as possible, forcing Czar Memphris to give you back the sword. Extend your time by fully clearing a room, and try to push the score to new heights. This Jump 'n' Destroy game has endlessly generated rooms, so no two runs will ever be the same!

Features:
* endlessly generated random levels for infinite fun!
* a Universal game that runs on iPhone and iPad!
* tactical & action skills required!
* ideal for quick plays whenever you feel like it!
* easy two-button control: left thumb throws 1 bomb per room, right thumb jumps!
* discover the special underwater and tunnel scenes!
* grow your reaction skills and laugh at the mayhem you're causing!
* beat your best $$$ destruction score!
* put on different clothes for Karate Girl!
* view the gameplay video at http://youtube.com/watch?v=0HjF7HG5llk

Philipp's comments:
My new (free) iPhone and iPad game is out: "Karate Girl Destruction Run And the Quest for the Humpterdink Sword". The levels are randomized so there's endless running (and destruction) fun! You can destroy tables, vases, computers, paintings and more, and all will make your $$$ score grow! A fully destroyed room extends your time limit. Give it a try, and if you like it, please leave an app store review (and give me your feedback here).

Looks interesting, (can't resist a good pixel or two) and I can't loose anything by trying.

Looks cool, thanks. There seems to be some IAP pending to buy gems to change clothes (perhaps other) for $2.99.

Game Impressions

I really liked the core mechanic. Unfortunately there just wasn't a lot to do. Over the top IAP which is also totally superfluous so may as well have been labeled "donation." Which is fine, but a 99c option would have been more reasonable.

Again, the mechanic is really good fun and well implemented. It just needs a game to go with it.

Exactly. Diamonds can also be collected in the game. Changing Karate Girl's clothes is optional though. You can dress as Red Ninja, Black Ninja, Street Wear, Monk and more. I made sure you don't get highscore advantages when using different clothes though, as I think it should be a fun addition for fans but those who don't pay should not be in a game play disadvantage.

Yep, considering that buying clothes really is just an optional add-on which doesn't affect gameplay mechanics (it will affect the visuals), I may indeed adjust the actual game download price to 99 cents or so later on. A bit like Jetpack Joyride, which is also paid but you can collect gold, or buy gold inside the app. Right now, I hope to spread the word and get feedback about Karate Girl. Curious about which highscore you managed to reach, though, and whether or not you found the underground and upper special levels!

Agreed, not as deep as say League of Evil but good mechanics and a lot of fun to play, a great pick up and play game to have around and free to boot, definitely recommended.

This is a fun gonzo platform runner with nice floaty aerial physics tha is a lot of fun to play. It's fast paced and wild but fairly casual. So fanI've enjoyed amfew frantic playthroughs. I agree it would be good if donation amount had a lower value option; the core game is worth $0.99.
