OK, OK, we know damn well that you can play Canabalt for free right now but this incredibly straightforward but thoroughly addictive game feels at home on iPhone. Besides, the developers even have a message on the site asking you to buy it so they can keep turning out quality games. So who are you to argue, eh? EH?

Anyway, the premise of Canabalt is simple - tap the screen and your little black and white chum will jump as he legs it across rooftops. It's the lightening fast nature of when he runs at full-tilt that will really test your gaming reflexes as you go. Bombs are thrown into the mix, huge gaps and even little boxes that will slow your momentum. The goal is to get as far as possible.

The 'one more go' potential is strong within Canabalt and it's perfect for little blasts of gaming while you're stood waiting for public transport or a date that's probably never going to turn up.
