Is this endless or level based? And it says it is an endless runner, does an endless runner have to have a character moving?

This is an interesting game and a great, simple idea.

On my iPad 3, some of the button graphics appear a bit messed up (smaller button graphics appears within larger button graphics), but it in no way interferes with the game play.

it's endless (randomly generated). I guess you're probably right a runner have to have a character moving but here your finger is the runner

I've got to say I'm enjoying this. It's simple and that's an appealing factor, makes it perfect for the two minute gaps in your day. I'm a sucker for precedurally generated levels and the game centre intergration is perfect.

I'd quite like to see a hardcore mode though, the game really hits its' stride around the 100cm mark. I'd love to be able to start at that kind of speed, though obviously still at 0cm in score.

Im really enjoying this, it's a great twist on the endless genre with your finger being the character.
You simply have to keep your finger within a scrolling line, it's starts off simple enough but soon the bends get tricky, the path splits into several directions and moving obstacles block the path, love the soundtrack but sometimes when a new sound is introduced it takes me off guard and I think I've died lol.

The cms you have travelled turn fills an image, once you've had a few good runs and the image is full you unlock new background colours.

Lots of fun.
