iPhone Game of the Day: Canabalt

Game: Canabalt
Price: £1.79/$2.99
Size: 7.4MB
Out: Now

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?

Above: You play the guy top left. Looks a bit like Michael Jackson. R.I.P. :(

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.

Above: Some buildings will collapse as you're sprinting across them

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.

    I have been playing this game for a few months, you can play a minute to kill time or you can play for hours trying to better your distance. Definitely try with headphones on, the techno beat is incredible!!!
