App description: "Fantastic... Super-simple, pixel-perfect, great music and sound." - daringfireball.net
"Canabalt is pure genius." -necessarygames.com
Escape the destruction of your city with just one button! The game that popularized the infinite runner genre is back with new game modes and support for every dang phone and tablet thingy!

-------------------------

"This "daring escape" platformer is simply beautiful and beautifully simple." -Kotaku

"It's going to be quite some time before you find something so simple so thrilling again." -Offworld

"Canabalt is actually much more intense than you'd assume of a game which requires a single finger to play." -GameSpy

-------------------------

Play any of the 8 new game modes with one or two players, dash across rooftops with four different runners, or just chase that high score in the classic futile race for survival.

-------------------------

"It's all very lovely and full of poignant subtext. And awesomeness. Canabalt is a prime example of a simple idea executed extremely well." -JayIsGames

"I have never seen a concept so richly and successfully realized in such a simple yet stunningly complete form. Canabalt represents the power and potential of small independent games." -gameinmind.com

"Music is another component that is just perfect - it enhances the strange and unsettling setting of the game and also gives a sense of speed with a hint of hope that quick feet might be the salvation to the horror." -bartsnews.net

Definitely, definitely better.

I'm still feeling that it isn't quite as smooth as it was before the 1.4 update, but that's probably just rose-colored glasses. I'm certainly more than happy with the way it's running now and put in a couple of fairly long play sessions. Will definitely have to go back and update my review.

Man... it's so nice to have this game back. Will have to put out some effort and practice up enough to get back on the high score tables.

Finally can fully recommend this game again. As others on this thread have noted, it's by far my favorite "runner" game. Thanks for finally pulling through Semi-secret!

Playing: Space Ace, Road Blaster, So Long Oregon, Necronomicon CG, 7th Guest, Deathsmiles
Waiting for: Mad Dog McCree, 11th Hour, Necronomicon CG update!

I completely agree. Can't decide if I'm just imagining that it was slightly smoother before; either way, it plays and looks much better on my 3Gs.

Rock on.

I brought this when it was $2.99 and still pick up and play it at least once a week. I love the black and white pixel style and feel everyone who loves runners should try this. Matter of fact , I will make a black and white runner myself and included it in an update to the retrogamebox. I feel inspired!!!

Anyone else having issues with the audio after updating to iOS 5? Hopefully an update/fix is on the way.

Are you referring to the sound effects? I'm asking because I can hear the music fine, but all the sound effects are gone

Ah, they're aware of the problem.

Yay, I hope they take the chance to update the graphics bug with the disappearing smoke clouds in the background as well. That's really annoying since the game was pretty perfect otherwise (still THE iOS icon for me). And the devs knew about it but were a bit lazy regarding an update. So, I'm hoping now.
