Lumiappaday #189: Running Dude demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| May 22, 2012 | 4 Replies

Let me start by saying this is a great game that you’re going to need to try out! If you liked Dalton that we demoed on the N9, this is like that.

This is quite simply, a running game called Running Dude. The principle is simple – just run and jump. But it’s really addictive. It has it’s own sense of quirky style with some interesting power ups in the game, such as robots to jump into, rocket packs, ones that shake your environment or flip it 180 and superman. That’s just what I came across whilst demoing it.

It’s a must have at just £0.79 and there’s a free version.
