Really excited now.

EDIT: arg not on the PH appstore yet. The screenshots look fantastic. The main character looks like something in between the robot from I, Robot, and Verticus

Embedded the trailer

And according to the dev in the IGN comments, there's no paywall. We'll see.

But that games looks like it'll be next to Vector in my folders. Love games with great parkour animations

It's basically Mirror's Edge as a three-lane runner with tilt-based Verticus-esque flying sections. There are Casual and Hardcore modes, and the usual upgrades and IAP options.

The core mechanic is similar to Sine Mora in that you don't die immediately by crashing into things, but by having your energy run out (either by hitting things or by having it passively drain away). You need to keep picking up batteries to fill your energy bar, and the various upgrades available assist with battery capacity, shield recharge, damage reduction, etc.

It'll probably be fun for a while with the mix of obstacles, but the environment and hazards do get repetitive very quickly.

Can't hug every cat.
