"An addictive endless runner set against a breathtaking nighttime cityscape backdrop" - AppAddict.net
"Acceleroto nailed it again with another awesome game." - Reviewer on AppsMeNow.com

- One-game super powers cheat death, deflect helicopters, and rake in more stars!
- Universal game for your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad!
- Super graphics tweaks to show off your iPad 2, iPhone4S or new iPad!
- Game Center leaderboards and achievements
- See your friends high scores on laser billboards while you play
- Score multipliers, bigger jumps and faster acceleration for every buff up!
- Automagic iCloud syncing of achievements between your devices (for supported iOS versions)
- Play Rush City with your iCade game controller for retro arcade action!
- Simple one-touch controls!
- Takes seconds to learn, hours & hours to master!

- To "die by helicopter" it's best to get a ways into the game until you see the helicopters appear lower above buildings or in between buildings. They're easier to splat yourself on then.
- To jump in the last 0.5m of a building, pick a building with a border on the roof and use that as a rough guide for when to jump.

Acceleroto's comments:

Not seeing any options in this game for iCade

Not seeing any options in this game for iCade and the iCade doesn't work by default, so if someone knows how to use the iCade with this game, please enlighten me. The options for the game are typical for an iOS game, which is SOUND FX & MUSIC VOLUME and that is all. Pretty weak.

Indeed. A game is certainly defined by the complexity of its settings menu.

Looks like a decent little runner but what does it add to the genre?

Nothing really, but in a glut of similar games, different people are going to have different tastes.

iCade support?

Hi. I have an iPad 4th gen & iOS 6.0.0. My iCade doesn't work in this game and there are no options to turn it on. Any idea how to make it work? I'd love to play this game with it!
