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.

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.

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!
