App description: Dead Runner is a unique take on the endurance run genre, immersing you in the action with a first-person point of view. Its a somewhat creepy, yet exhilarating, almost Blair Witch like experience. Appaddict.net

Like Blair Witch without the cursing and motion sickness This is one of those times when I keep pausing from writing just to squeeze in another run. Dead Runner thrives on that just one more try compulsion, and features a great list of challenging Achievements. ZTGD.com

I didnt expect it to be so intense that I havent been able to put it down till I beat my highscore and when I do, Ill want to beat that. Touchaholics.com

You wake up in a dark forest, surrounded by the sounds of the wailing souls trapped in the haunted trees. The howling wind is delivering a chilling message of evil which is drawing closer by the second. The cold whispers of the forgotten souls tell you to run as far as you can, as fast as you can before its too late.

You cannot hide or stop for it can see you, find you and take you.

Universal Build!

Openfeint and Game Center achievements and leaderboards.

Looks pretty cool. Like Boost 3D with trees. Are there any other obstacles besides the trees?

We like to think that Dead Runner is much more immersive than other similar games. The visuals and sound really make it feel like you are in that forest

You'll need to dodge to tree and gravestones but you can use the bushes to slow yourself down a little if (when) the speed gets too much.
