    The beauty of Canabalt lies in both the simplicity of it's interface and its polish. You only have to touch the screen to jump. Ready? Go! A monochrome city under attack by what appears to be aliens is the setting for this game as you make your way through your first window. Dramatic music by the illustrious Danny B looms overhead as you hurtle through empty space, as you land, roll and recover when landing on a structure. Eventually you will learn the audio cues for falling spacecraft, the finesse required to jump through a window, and that other peoples scores make it look like you suck at this game. Sure, you may feel cheated at times, as you hit a wall and tumble to your death. But like the good book says, "All is fair in love and parkour."

    Have fun.
