  • Summary: “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.

    Supports iPhone4 Retina Display graphics and gyroscope assisted steering!

    Openfeint achievements and leaderboards.

    If you like Canabalt style games and are looking for a twist on the genre, you'll enjoy Dead Runner. It's fast paced, looks nice, and has that great OpenFeint leaderboard that I know you want to crack.

    Dead Runner is a strangely ethereal and creepy game to try, but outside some achievements it's a short nightmare that you'll soon forget.

    An interesting idea that's technically well implemented, high score game Dead Runner is nevertheless thematically confused.

    Dead Runner is almost as bare-bones as a game can be, but it has that "one more try" appeal that some will find addictive... for a while, anyway.
