Default BIT.TRIP RUN! - the mobile version of Runner2!

Hey everyone!

Dant from Gaijin Games here. We're known best for creating the original BIT.TRIP series as well as the recently released BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.

Not-so-secretly, we've been hard at work on an iOS version of Runner2 for quite some time now. It's coming along incredibly well, and in fact we're pretty close to being ready to release it!

First and foremost, it's worth mentioning that the game is going to be called BIT.TRIP RUN! If you're curious about why we decided to change the name, it's because the game isn't going to be a port of Runner2. We've made a number of changes, some of which can be read about here in handy bullet-point form:

- The controls have been completely overhauled. Play the game with just one finger by tapping and swiping!
- Similarly, the UI and world map have been revamped.
- In accordance with the control changes, the levels have also been redesigned. For example, “Stair Hoppers” make climbing up stairs an easier prospect.
- The game will feature a shop where you can get stuff right away. Or you can just unlock everything by playing normally (like the champ you are).
- There will be Game Center achievements and leaderboards. That’s probably not surprising at all!


And now I'm going to shut up and provide some screenshots:







If you have any questions, feel free to leave them as a reply to this post! I'm also happy to answer any questions you have about A) ghosts or B) pizza.

P.S. - We're posting daily screenshots of the game over on the Runner2 blog, in case you ever want to see more!

Awesome, going the Joe Danger route of building the game ground up for mobile. Can't wait for this

I was completely addicted to Bit Trip Runner '1' on my PC even though it was wicked evil hard. It seems like a natural fit for an IOS device. I can't wait for your release and thanks for making cool games.

Do you think Ghostbusters is an accurate representation of ghosts?

Oh and the game looks cool too.

I only just started playing the game when it was given away with PlayStation Plus, but it was addicting, fun, and nice enough that I can't wait to get it on iOS and support the developers!
