Freerunning in the app store.
The number of games with the Parkour/ Freerunning concept is steadily growing, with titles such as Run!, Action Hero, Canabalt, Jail Breaker, Cyberrunner, Caper and soon to be Mirror's Edge. These are all pretty nice, with fun gameplay. They each have their own uniqueness. But as a huge fan of this concept, I am awaiting something much more intense. I envision something similar to the concept of the T.V. show Chase, that was on the Sci Fi channel. It would be fully rendered in 3D city environments, with immersive gameplay enabling players to run up and down streets, through alleys and buildings, jumping across roof tops, scaling fences and sliding under obstacles, etc. There could be a campaign mode as well as multiplayer wi-fi and bluetooth tag matches, with multiple maps to choose from. There could also be an option to switch between 1st and 3rd person view, during gameplay, by tapping a certain part of the screen. The multiplayer aspect would be last man standing, where players have to run from AI characters that resemble agents, from the Matrix movie. There could also be simple tag matches similar to what many of us played as children. It's just an idea. Who knows, maybe there is a developer out there with the same idea in mind, already working on such a project. I really think that the iDevices are ready for something of this calibre. And the 1st developer that brings this to the app store will take iPhone/ iPod touch gaming to a whole new level. What do you think?
