"Canabalt is pure genius."

"It's going to be quite some time before you find something so simple so thrilling again." -Offworld

"I bought it last night, and next to Eliss and iDracula it's the best iPhone game I've yet played. The fast pace and one-button gameplay translate perfectly to Apple's ubiquitous little mobile device." -Rev. Burch, Destructoid

"Canabalt is a fun diversion and sports slick, black and white pixel graphics." -IGN

"This "daring escape" platformer is simply beautiful and beautifully simple." -Kotaku

"Canabalt is actually much more intense than you'd assume of a game which requires a single finger to play." -GameSpy

"It's all very lovely and full of poignant subtext. And awesomeness. Canabalt is a prime example of a simple idea executed extremely well." -JayIsGames

"I have never seen a concept so richly and successfully realized in such a simple yet stunningly complete form. Canabalt represents the power and potential of small independent games."

"Music is another component that is just perfect - it enhances the strange and unsettling setting of the game and also gives a sense of speed with a hint of hope that quick feet might be the salvation to the horror."

"Fast load times combined with short (yet exciting) game sessions really make for an attractive game to play on a mobile device." -TouchArcade

"Fantastic new ... iPhone game. Super-simple, pixel-perfect, great music and sound." -

Sound jacked-up... STILL

Game finally patched and they still haven't fixed the long-standing sound bug. This game REQUIRES sound to know what's coming. Unfortunately, the soundtrack completely overpowers the audio effects yet cant be turned down or off (yes, i know the volume controls inexplicably reside in the System Preferences). This is a game breaker so lets all hope they can get themselves up from the couch in their parents' garage long enough to fix it.

I've heard this game was coded in a single weekend, and I believe it.


Oh my gosh they updated Canabalt

This game is like an old friend. It's the same game, but every so often you see something and go "Oh, that's new." Great stuff.

(For the person who wanted the "no vibrate mod", it's in the iOS Settings app, not inside the game.)

A blast from the past!

This is an excellent endless runner with a stellar soundtrack. I'm so happy to see my old favorite get updated as I feared it had been put out to pasture.
