-Game Skinny: "my 3.5 year old thinks it is absolutely hilarious"

Hmm just played it for 10 minutes, it's ok, it's got iAds during play bottom of screen, the premise is good, but not enough variation or corners, it's just one long straight street that you can cross, avoiding cars and people on footpath(I'm from NZ) while collecting cash to buy upgrades( such as trousers). So- not as good as I hoped

Where can I upgrade things? Something is weird, I got no ads whatsoever... Idk cool game so far, but I agree with your post. More variation would be welcome!

Something to mention, the "free version only gives you 20 (rechargeable) lives, so be careful! I didn't know about that TBT so I tried it out

Seems to be five minutes a heart.

First, its easy... And starts really slow... It gets better when you reach 10km (I believe it stops counting from there on), but you have to make that distant first, and then its more fun. But there isnt much to do, no objectives, there is cash but for nothing as I havent found a shop or anything to spend it on... No incoming traffic at the crosswalks, everyone at the street is bigger than you :P

You control him with taps, hold the tap and move like a joystick. Controls good.

So and in all, its free so make your own judgement. FREE

Sidewalker removed form the store. Coming May 2nd.

I am the developer of Sidewalker. This game was accidentally release today by the app store, however the official release date is not till May 2. It is being removed from the store right now. If you did manage to download it please enjoy the pre-release demo. Sorry for the mix up.

We are still adding power ups and polishing the overall experience. You will be able to go past 10k but the game also is more difficult at high distances.

Screenshots of Sidewalker - Late to Work. Coming May 2nd.

Title Screen & Logo

Crowd of people with trees.

Hitting the Joker Tourist who gives you a random power.

Pigeon Vision Power - Gives you a birds eye view on the action.

Walker wearing the suit & pants, lets you take an extra hit.

It's pretty fun, if unpolished. Since this is a pre-release demo, we can expect improvements in the final version.

The controls are great, far better than most endless runners.
