Like this, only incomprehensibly fast and shaky!

Like this, only incomprehensibly fast and shaky!

Almost exactly a year ago I was in love with Dino Run for its simple concept (umm, run!), loads of replayability and, most of all, its gorgeous pixel art. This year I should be crazy over Canabalt, a game which has only one button (jump!) and simply requires you to keep up with the increasingly fast and shaky side-scrolling action as you try to escape a city’s destruction. It looks and sounds as stylish as Dino Run but I just can’t keep up with the action after about 2,000 meters. The rooftops and obstacles are randomly generated so there’s no way to memorize your way through it but for about five minutes (or as long as your patience holds out) it provides a fun and lovingly pixelated run.
