Yeah... Played that yesterday. Graphic style reminds me of The Other Brothers, and the gameplay is closely similar to Canabalt.

Pretty polished, picking up coffee speeds you up, drop your coffee meter to zero and it's game over. It reaches some crazy speeds.

To unlock levels, you need to pickup the required number (each level has a different number) of reels in a single run.

Good graphics, good sounds, and good but basic high-score chasing runner mechanics.

On the bad side, it's a little too basic for today's standards. It's still pretty good though, but im not sure how many would really like something this simple.

That said, it wouldve been a blast with missions, and maybe some customization with how you look. Nothing that affects gameplay.

I love the look of it, and I think it's often nice having a simple game for the bus or something
