App description: Proto Raider is single screen auto-running puzzle platformer covered in ASCII beauty.

"Puzzle Lab's Proto Raider is just so quirky and so cool it totally won our hearts for Game of the Week" - Jared Nelson, Touch Arcade

You can run and jump, scuba dive, surf the waterfalls, fight monsters, fly in tornadoes etc. But you must be careful because you can be burnt to ashes, drowned, poisoned, stabbed, annihilated or turned to stone!

To complete the quest and collect all loot, you'll need agility, speed and special items that give you various superpowers.

+ Minimal, ASCII inspired visual style
+ Every level is a tricky one-screen mini-quest
+ Several retro modes: Pixelated, Monochrome, etc.
+ Dozens of items to collect that give various superpowers
+ Retro music tracks

It is one-tap control game. Tap -> jump.

Thanks. Yeah I just saw the video. Looks good but I'm not a fan of one touch platformers. Shame

Actually, it is not a platformer. It is one-screen quest/puzzle.
