App description: Avoid is a frenetic, fast and challenging arcade runner with an eye catching graphical style.
It offers an addictive arcade gameplay in the spirit of old coin games.

Apple's Editor's Choice in Europe and featured in all countries !!

Your ship mission is to survive as long as possible dodging obstacles and enemies with the help of various power ups.
Play the game while the background follows the music like a sound wave visualizer.
Every theme is unique from the style to the music and gameplay.

Select your game style with endless runner mode or a story mode in which you have to complete levels
of different difficulty , from easy to extreme.
Post your high score into the leaderboards and try to reach the best Avoid players on earth.

Move left, move right, collect power up, dodge obstacles, destroy enemies, die, get high scores.
Complete increasingly difficult challenges and bang your head to the music's rhythm.

Case in point: Avoid: Sensory Overload, which I confess I'm struggling to pull myself away from just now to write these words.

Avoid - Sensory Overload features :
-Randomly generated endless mode
-Levels Mode
-Multiple graphical styles associated to different musical genres
-Beautiful original soundtracks
-Power Ups
-Dynamic backgrounds
-Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements

Avoid - Sensory Overload Themes:
-Electronic (Play)
-LaserDance (Try or Buy) : Playable
-SynthRock (Try or Buy) : Playable
-Minimal (Play)

Oh, cool. Didn't know this was coming to IOS. I had been following it on Steam Greenlight

There won't be only the "Endless mode" but a "Levels mode" too.
In this mode obstacles are not generated randomly and you have 3 lives to reach the end.
Each theme will have 32 levels (8 for each difficulty), for a total of 96 unique levels at launch!
Cube: Stands Still
Rotator: A blade that rotates around the central obstacle.
Death Ray: A ray that destroys everything in a column
Ball: Moves left and right
Missile: Moves towards the camera. It activates after you pass in front of it.

Power ups
Multiplier: Obtain more points. If you skip one the multiplier will decrease.
Shield: Lets you ignore one collision .
Compress: Makes you smaller.
Laser: Destroys everything directly in front of you. Has a warm up time
Drop Cubes: Lowers all the cubes on the screen.
Tile: Closes all the holes on the screen.
Ghost: Lets you pass through obstacles.
Cannon: Periodically shoots a bullet that destroys an obstacle..
