[BETA] RETROSHIFTER - Cyberpunk themed runner with mindbending intensity

We are looking for beta testers and would love ANY feedback! <3
iOS: Private message me your e-mail for a Testflight invitation
Android: Download RETROSHIFTER (BETA)

Hi everyone! My name is Lina. I am the artist/composer of the two-man game development team Murdercloud Studios. This is the first project we have worked on together as Murdercloud Studios and finally after 8 months we are able to set a preliminary release date (May 28th).


Your goal as the RETROSHIFTER is to escape the laser security system. You do this by timing your jumps, dives and rolls through the lasers, the catch being that you have to synchronize your RETROSHIFTERS color to that of the laser. Multitasking is the key.

The speed keeps increasing as you progress, intensifying and intensifying until you maybe decide to catch your breath using the Focus Ability:

A few of the character customizations available:


* Challenge your friends
* Test your reflexes with intuitive controls
* Slowdown time for the extra tricky situations
* Get PUMPED up with the dynamic retro soundtrack that intensifies with the gameplay
* Complete hundreds of daring missions to rise to the top
* Customize your look with unlockable outfits
* Upgrade your RETROSHIFTER to unlock his ultimate potential
* Earn achievements and challenge your friends
* Unlock game-modes for bigger challenges


RETROSHIFTER is a brand new endless runner game. A life-long passion with all things 80ís and videos games led me to attempt to create an experience that captured the essence of the 80ís Cyberpunk era. This through a pulsating 80ís retro inspired soundtrack and distinct visuals focusing on the contrast between the dark dystopian world and the bright fluorescent neon lights. All this brought together with the nostalgia of pixelated retro graphics.
