A new test-your-reflexes game called Castle Runner is available today for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch to test users’ patience as well as their reflexes. The game, which invites players to enter the tumbling dark castle and use smart techniques to escape alive, involves digital running and concentration.
Nope, that’s not a combination you often see.
In Castle Runner, the ceiling is falling rapidly and thus constantly increasing the tension of users overcoming various obstacles as they jump and slide their way to safety. Bonuses give players some power to stop the ceiling from falling or raise it for a limited time. At the same time, users have to keep an eye out for bonuses that may increase the speed of the falling ceiling or turn out the light, forcing users to run in the dark.
Castle Runner requires iOS 3.0 or later and is a 6.7 MB download. It’s available immediately from the Apple App Store in the Games category.
