Night Run ($0.99) - New Platformer

Hi all! My name is Michael Sean Hansen and I'm the developer of Night Run (App Store Link), a new platformer.


I'm working up to version 1.0, with version 0.2 available now. Version 0.3 has been submitted and is in review, and it will bring high scores to the game.

This is not only my first iPhone game, but also my first game period, so I just wanted to share this with you and hopefully get some feedback.

Thanks!

Well. I might sound a lil rude but your sweetest platformer is a bit lacking in grafix department.

maybe a gameplay video will help your cause.

Which is probably one of the reasons he doesn't consider this a full 1.0 yet.

Looks like a good start though; I've seen much worse final products.

I'm a strong supporter of getting something out that plays well. After all, pretty graphics mean nothing if the gameplay isn't there.

That said, I took the plunge.

I'll load it up later when I need a break.

Thanks for the feedback so far! As far as the graphics go, I was shooting for a very simple yet fun game. Graphics updates may come in the future, but it won't be anything earth-shattering.

The gray ball with the "P" is the character, Pistachio. You try to collect the jelly beans to boost your multiplier. I'll get to work on a gameplay video and try to have that up when the next update goes live. Thanks again!
