App description: Journey into the enchanted land of Pénombre where witches, ghosts and other
creatures meet in this endless runner game.

When our heroine Umbra stepped out of her house to find new spells, she never thought she'll get lost in the Petit Woods.
Now, all creatures she had befriended have turned on each other as Pénombre descends onto the land.
Umbra must travel across 7 kingdoms filled with treacherous traps and dangerous creatures to find her way back home.
But she has many spells left in her book to help in her journey.
After all, she is quite a witch herself...

Pénombre is an endless side-scroller that combines the visuals of genre-defining classics with the accessibility of great arcade games.

Key Features


Fast-Paced Gameplay: Face traps and creatures that will continually test your reflexes. Pénombre has become a sinister environment, with darkness creeping up on you.
Avoid getting hurt or shadows will impair Umbra's vision, making it harder to avoid the dangerous birds and fierce creatures that populate your journey.

Magic Spells: Upgrade Umbra's spells and gain incredible magic powers.

Unlock new levels and many, many quests: unlock new locations by completing previous levels, unlock special levels where Umbra can fly on her broom, and complete over 50 quests to earn even more souls.

Stay alive and help Umbra get safely back home from either your iPod Touch, iPhone, Iphone 5, Iphone 6, Iphone 6+ or iPad!

I tested it and it is an awesome game.

It is an endless runner game, but devided in levels. Each level has a different background. To go further, you have to successfully complete the level. Each level can also be played indefinitely. And, you have bonus levels where your witch can flight.

On top of that, the music and noises are great.

Recommend it.

Thanks for the good recommendation

Sorry everyone for not updating the "Upcoming" thread. Been busy with BulkpyPix preparing tomorrow's US launch

I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Is there a randomized endless mode, or is the game anchored entirely around the set levels?

Either way it's not a deal-breaker, and the game looks awesome regardless. Just curious. Thanks!

On initial play, the levels have a given distance to reach to be "completed". When you finish a given level and unlock the next level, the previous level will unlock endless mode. Endless doesn't have a distance to achieve and keeps repeating, until Umbra runs out of life.
