App description: Caveman Runner! Top Down Scrolling Action. Over 1,000 players!
Delightfully random gameplay involves collecting as many delicious steaks as you can before your caveman altar ego is devoured by a ferocious T-Rex. Old School, addictive gameplay and scads of re-playability (along with the low, low price and a vow of regular updates from creators Ryan and Tom) are the biggest reasons why Caveman Runner is a game you'll be running to play! This is the second release and we look forward to providing free updates based on your feedback so please leave reviews.
The user reviews keep coming:
"easy app to just pick up and play"
"I can't stop playing"
"There's even a philosophical lesson -- just like the dinosaur eventually catches the caveman, so does death. It's all about the journey and how many pieces of "meat" we pick up in life."
One player even said he had to postpone his marriage because the game came out on his wedding day!

PixelRyan's comments:
My first iPhone game is out now and I want to be sure TouchArcade is one of the first places I tell. Here is a snipped of a Press Release we'll be sending out soon:

"CAVEMAN RUNNER is the story of Grung, a youthfully buffed out caveman who finds himself running from a ferociously hungry dinosaur. In order to keep his forward momentum, Grung must move from side to side to gulp down delicious, raw steaks. By helping Grung eat enough steaks and stay alive long enough, the player is eventually rewarded with a Sprint Button that, when tapped, enables the Grungie One to open up more of a lead on his toothy foe."

I plan on adding more actions but for now I wanted to focus on keeping it simple with Sprint to where if you mash it like crazy you will go too fast and hit the cacti but if you conserve and use it with skill you can improve your results. I invite you all to check it out and let me know what you think!
