No, it does not. And in my opinion, the game's graphics suffer lots for it. Everything is kinda blurry. Still, the game is very pretty. Animation work is tops, different environments, nice music...

I like seeing Nathan Drake in a game other than Uncharted, though this is like a scaredy cat version.

Game is a running game, get from left to right without being caught by the Guineans. You have a slide, jump, and accelerate button. Powerups are scattered throughout.

As you would expect, as you progress further in the game it gets tougher, more obstacles and the like. It's really nice.


I say it's really worth the money. Playing on Normal you're promised perhaps a good two hours of game time. Then you have endless mode. AND you can challenge friends using Game Center. It even has Open Feint.

In summation, think any running game, but polished to a sheen and you have Run Like Hell. Retina display support would push this one over the top. It's exactly what I was expecting and exactly what you see in the video; it's play EXACTLY like the video. Jump on it people.

2 bucks is much for a endless running game (exclude Canabalt please).

Believe me, you're getting a LOT of game for 2 bucks. This endless runner has a plot, to boot. It's terrific.

And I know I said the lack of retina display hurts the games visuals. But this is still a very very good looking game. Retina display would just make it punchier. Unless I'm looking at it wrong and the game does have retina display support.

Either way, this is my new favorite game.

I agree. This game is super fun. Probably the best endless running game in the app store.
