App description: Game created by Yilmaz Kiymaz and Alex Schwartz in 24 hours. Happy new years from GTProductions

Concept:
You and your brother (Super Ramen BROTHers) are running on a supermarket cashier's conveyor belt, trying to avoid getting scanned, taken home, and eaten. You have to either jump or swerve to avoid oncoming food items. If you are hit, you get knocked back a notch, closer to the scanner and your eventual doom. If you happen to gather a soy sauce packet, you get moved forward a notch.

Controls:
There are 3 lanes and the characters can move from lane to lane with a simple lateral swipe. Jumps are executed with a quick tap.

Online leaderboards using AGON

I wonder, is that the general feeling about games with AGON? From a developer standpoint it's very clean and easy to work with.

Ya, Agon is crap. You cant use it on more than one devices. People upgrade their iDevices Agon

Btw, did I miss how to pause this game or you forgot to add an option for it

Are you thinking of adding updates? [don't see why you wouldn't, just wondering]

But Agon..I just can't describe why I don't like it. It almost feels like a knockoff of OF/Plus+, when I get a game and see it has Agon [don't judge me for this] I tend to view the game differently, I'm not sure why. Samurai: WOTW & Inkvaders come to mind.. I've heard how it is easy for devs, but as a consumer, I just don't like Agon at all.

The aisle eleven symbol in the hud doubles as a pause symbol (ish?) so you can just tap that.

One minor omission, however, is a 'back to menu' button from the postgame screen. Quit and re-open. It's the 24-hour way :P

Well, online framework preferences aside, feel free to check out the public scoreboard on my site to see who (and where!) the best ramen players are:
