"Canabalt is pure genius.""It's going to be quite some time before you find something so simple so thrilling again." -Offworld"I bought it last night, and next to Eliss and iDracula it's the best iPhone game I've yet played. The fast pace and one-button gameplay translate perfectly to Apple's ubiquitous little mobile device." -Rev. Burch, Destructoid"Canabalt is a fun diversion and sports slick, black and white pixel graphics." -IGN"This "daring escape" platformer is simply beautiful and beautifully simple." -Kotaku"Canabalt is actually much more intense than you'd assume of a game which requires a single finger to play." -GameSpy"It's all very lovely and full of poignant subtext. And awesomeness. Canabalt is a prime example of a simple idea executed extremely well." -JayIsGames"I have never seen a concept so richly and successfully realized in such a simple yet stunningly complete form. Canabalt represents the power and potential of small independent games.""Music is another component that is just perfect - it enhances the strange and unsettling setting of the game and also gives a sense of speed with a hint of hope that quick feet might be the salvation to the horror.""Fast load times combined with short (yet exciting) game sessions really make for an attractive game to play on a mobile device." -TouchArcade"Fantastic new ... iPhone game. Super-simple, pixel-perfect, great music and sound." -
