Riot Runners - Upcoming Endless Arcade Runner (by Room 8)







Hey, everyone! We’re Room 8 and we’ve almost finished working on our latest endless runner game for mobile - Riot Runners. We are very happy about the fact that even before the official release the game has won the Indie Prize Audience Award for the best game in show. We did our best to make it as fun and unique as we could by taking the best from this spread and popular genre, and adding some cool stuff, such as ever-evolving difficulty and diverse robots with their unique special powers.

So here’s the concept.

Story
In the world of steam machines little robots are enslaved by giant mechanic overlords. They have to do all the hard work and obey their evil masters. But one day a brave robot rises against his masters and starts a rebellion, inspiring all the other robots to do the same. They need YOU! Lead the riot and help them escape!

Game mechanics
You have to run through an endless course of dangerous obstacles, while getting away from the evil enslaver. The game world is ever-evolving - it transforms as you play, becomes harder and harder, changes the looks and colors of environment and adds more and more enemies that want to catch you.

Playable characters
There are seven playable robots for you to unlock. Each one of them has his own unique special ability, so the playstyle changes significantly, bringing a different game experience. You can jump higher, fit smaller gaps, glide, shield yourself, start further away from the enslaver…Pick the one you like and feel the most.



Main Features
- Atmospheric runner with stylish steampunk design
- Various customizable robots, offering unique game mechanics
- Increasing difficulty from easy to bone-breaking
- Dangerous Saws & Gears to avoid
- Diverse daily missions
- Highly immersive audio-visual experience
- Leaderboards to compete with Facebook friends
- Game Center Leaderboards

Screenshots








Earlier this year Riot Runners was softlaunched onto the German and Canadian App Stores. We’ve been working hard on it since then, polishing the game to make it compliance with users demand and we’re about to release it globally with some major improvements. We expect the worldwide release in a few weeks onto the App Store, a bit later to Google Play.

I’ll be happy if you could share your thoughts of what you see and leave us your feedback here or on Riot Runners Facebook page!

As Deadly Bullet and Beat Leap have shown, free doesn't have to mean freemium. So I'll stay hopeful. Waiting your impressions

Unfortunately the game doesnt load at all... tried with reinstalling, redownloading, changing language, rebooting,... but nothing, only shows the Room 8 logo and that's it. I did some research and it happens to other users too. Hope Sink or Swim is able to run it and tell us more about it.
