  • Summary: ***Not compatible with 3GS ***
    When the world is threatened by a malevolent darkness a brave warrior rises, fearless and ready to run, head first, into the thick of battle. His confidence is steeled by his mystical ability to transform at-will into noble creatures including a rampaging wild
    boar, capable of spearing enemies on his horn, a mighty eagle that can soar over deadly hazards and a fearsome dragon able to vanquish all who stand in it's path.

    As he runs, the warrior breathes new life into the world and puts new stars in the sky. Knowing when to transform between shapes, man, bird, and beast, is key to success in this action-packed endless runner.

    Totem Runner’s unique looks are matched by its compelling gameplay and immersive story. Take up the challenge and become the warrior within.

    Totem Runner, at its core, is another side-scrolling runner, which isn't exactly the most complex genre on the planet. While it may not bring revolutionary new depth to iOS gaming, though, it deserves attention because it's such an impressive artistic achievement.

    A gorgeous endless-runner that mixes challenging gameplay with sumptuous visuals.

    There are better auto-running platformers out there, but Totem Runner does a good job of keeping up. The experience is well-balanced between twitchy button handling and careful planning-it's just a touch cerebral, and never too frustrating.

    Accelerometer controls act with 'jerky' responses; thankfully alternate controls are available (if difficult to manipulate).

    Totem Runner is a funny and somewhat original take on the endless runner formula, and it also boosts some truly stylish and evocative visuals. It's a little light on content, but hopefully future updates will fix this issue.

    It's a neat idea but with clumsy controls, it takes some persistence to truly enjoy.
