Run'n'Gun - free runner - (by Gaijin Entertainment)

Run’n’Gun is a new runner/shooter developed by Gaijin Entertainment, which offers you both rushing around and plinking.
In those troubled times when everyone might easily come across trolls or even uglier ones, when every child kept a revolver under his or her pillow, there was only a nearby tavern to beguile a boring afternoon. At the late hour all are equal at the bar desk - either a sheriff, or a hunter, or a nasty troll. They said a city bank was robbed, and everybody who seems to be capable of breaking strong safe locks has fallen under suspicion.
No one likes thieves, but goblins running away with the gold backpacked displeasure doubly! The time has come to hunt - the most accurate gunner takes it all.

Only in Run’n’Gun:
• Five heroes each having personal features.
• Waste goblins! Plink coins out of them with every shot.
• Picturesque landscapes, different locations inspired by the Grimm Brothers' folk tales.
• Special holiday offers for the winter location.
• Gun and run racing each other - compare your friend records set in social networks.

Other features:
• Easy and intuitive control.
• Collect coins and boost your character and his or her individual skills.
• Run, slide, jump, but most of all - gun!

Really liking it! Definitely recommend it if you're a fan of the genre. It takes a few ideas from the leading runners out there and adds a fairytale twist of it's own as well as some new mechanics. My favorite characters by far are the twins.

Framerate is great, no lags at all on iPhone 4 iOS 5.1. It does get a little jittery at higher speeds, making it hard to control the character (especially when at higher speeds seem to appear many more obstacles) but I mean like way in there, like 7,000 - 10,000 meters approx. Overall it's a very solid game.

Lot's a missions to complete which reward you XP and coin. Leveling up rewards you with diamonds. The diamond currency is quite hard to obtain which is a bummer. One downside is that some boosts require diamonds (like the headstarts) and considering they're so hard to come by.

This may be a stupid question, but is there anyway to add landscape mode support? It seems like most endless runners like this are in portrait mode, but I much prefer landscape runners like blood roofs. If it is not too hard, it would be cool to play this game in landscape too.
