Gravity Runner - Coming August 2010

Hi Again,

We've just produced a Trailer for our latest game, Gravity Runner.

If you still haven't heard of Gravity Runner, where have you been?! Gravity Runner is a running game, similar to 'Canabalt' and 'Chop Chop Runner' but with a unique twist that is not seen in either. You can flip the games gravity on it's head, so that the player is running on the ceiling. This adds a great new unique challenge to the game.

With this unique difference, very smooth gameplay and brilliant retro graphics. This is a game we think no one should miss.

Here is a trailer for the game:

I will of course be posting in these forums when the game is released, so keep an eye out, and tell your friends about the game!

Actually looks pretty unique for a running game. Also seems very hard...
How do you switch the gravity?

It is hard, but a lot of fun. All you have to do is tap on the screen to switch gravity. ;D

The game is quite difficult, but people who have played it have found it fustratingly addictive and don't want to put the game down.

You jump by tapping anywhere on the screen, and switch gravity by tapping once while the player is in mid air. We're thinking about creating separate buttons for jumping and gravity switching, some people might find this method easier to use.
