It is a truth universally acknowledged that Stride & Prejudice is an unusual endless runner where the platforms are made from the text of Pride and Prejudice.

What's New in Version 1.0.2
Updated text of the novel to fix a few typos. Thanks for playing!
No more wasted time!
This game is brilliant! I tend to find myself wasting time with dumb games on my phone, but this game is something completely different. This game is fun, but also intelligent. When I would normally dumb down my intelligence with games, I am able to tackle a classic book.
I like the simple setup of the game, it makes it easier to focus on the text.
I think that this should become a whole new genre of iPhone games.
Great fun for the "Pride and Prejudice" fan!
This app is exactly what it says it is--Elizabeth runs along the text. While I wouldn't recommend it for a first time read of "Pride and Prejudice", it's great fun to reread in this format. The breaks in the text (where Lizzy must jump) add emphasis to certain phrases of the story, and create a new way of experiencing, what is for me (and many), a well-trod story.
Great idea, blurry words
Actually a creative runner with an interesting concept that feels productive instead of killing time. My only gripe is the words get blurry, even when you're not going that fast. Also, they go by a bit too quickly after a while. If the words get less blurry it would be five stars.
