Voted #1 in Mashable's "The 10 Most Beautiful Mobile Games"!

“Dead Runner is a unique take on the endurance run genre, immersing you in the action with a first-person point of view. It’s a somewhat creepy, yet exhilarating, almost Blair Witch like experience.” –

“Like Blair Witch without the cursing and motion sickness …This is one of those times when I keep pausing from writing just to squeeze in another run. Dead Runner thrives on that “just one more try” compulsion, and features a great list of challenging Achievements.” –

“I didn’t expect it to be so intense that I haven’t been able to put it down till I beat my highscore – and when I do, I’ll want to beat that.” –

You wake up in a dark forest, surrounded by the sounds of the wailing souls trapped in the haunted trees. The howling wind is delivering a chilling message of evil which is drawing closer by the second. The cold whispers of the forgotten souls tell you to run as far as you can, as fast as you can before it’s too late.

You cannot hide or stop for it can see you, find you and take you.

Customer Reviews

We need more of this

Y'know, this is really interesting and engaging, as simple as it is. The graphics are great and that atmosphere is something we need more of. Controls are smooth and simple too. I'd like to see a sequel of course, and I'd like to see this developer come up with more games that mix atmosphere, fear and simplicity. Nice break from fumbling with weapons while getting swarmed by zombies!

Innovation / Accessible / Fun

Dead Runner is a great pick up and go game. Gameplay and controls are intuitive and the app is polished and well designed. When people ask me about games on my iphone I hand them Dead Runner, they never give it back without several 'one more' tries.

Great pick up and go game.

Would be 5 stars if there was more to it (ie. Animals run across path, eyes glow in dark, ghost mist suddenly appears, weird/fantasy creatures pop out)
