    Vampire Runner - arielsan - 48 Hour Competition Entry

    Vampire runner is some kind of Canabalt where you have to avoid obstacles by using a super power to move through them. The original idea was to be escaping from the Sun light, that is why you play a Vampire, but I forgot to add the Sun... small detail :(

    Instructions - PC: use click to activate super skill
    Instructions - Android: touch screen to activate super skill
    (note: on Android looks a bit wrong because I did the game for another aspect ratio).

    Hope you like it.

    UPDATE: Added timelapse -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osN0gO6ajNs

    I went in to this game skeptical. "Canabalt but you just run through walls? How could that be fun?"

    I was happily proven wrong though, it's a fun little timing game. I like how it kind of strips out all the unnecessary complications and is just a pure simple timing challenge.
    Graphics are pretty, although the walls are rather bland.
    Didn't really feel like I was Escaping anything, just running. If I was running from something, I didn't really get that.

    Yeah, it is a bit incomplete in that, the first idea was to make the "vampire" to run away from the sun but then I never added the sun light following you so it doesn't transmit the idea of escaping.

    Happy the game resulted to be fun though.

    I kept smiling all the time while playing, it's really a fun game! ^^
    I like how simple but good the concept is! 4*

    Feels like Bit.trip Runner meets Vampire the Masquerade (or Requiem if you are one of those new school hipster kids :P). Very fun to play.

    The game is pretty nice, although some audio would definitely make it better. Fun to play anyway!

    This is an awesome start, and I can see this becoming really addicting with some better graphics and a few more surprises. Well done.

    Nice little game. I would like to see more gameplay mechanics though, to keep things more interesting.

    What a simple concept, yet so much fun! :)

    libgdx FTW!

    Wouldn't run. Downloaded a bunch of stuff, but then the page stayed blank. Chrome on Windows XP.

    Fun one-button game. Best I could manage was just short of 500. Need more practice!
