It is almost like a predecessor but a bit unique. It uses parallax scrolling with some three layers of building tops to jump about. While I doesn't have any of Canabalt's hazards/obstacles, the cityscapes are very random with most rooftops pretty short causing you to constantly keep on your toes, especially once you reach full speed.

I have canabalt and I love it, I just downloaded this game and it is nothing like canabalt. The fun factor is not there, just do yourself a favor and download canabalt and I promise you won't be disapointed (it's well worth the $2.99)

No clearly they are different games and Canabalt has a shootload more polish, but as far as free games go, JOTB is pretty decent.
