I'm tickled to have run in to another highly difficult platformer(-esque) game that Lifeformed had his hand in. Though on a serious note, I really do like this game. It took a bit of time for it to stick with me, as well as some fiddling with the controls, but when it clicked it clicked strong. It does have its issues though: Some of the obstacles are not as visible as they really should be, and I find myself running in to things I believed were background decoration. Also, I dig the 90s cyberpunk Anime as filtered through an Western artist from the mid 2000s as filtered through an artist from the current year. If that doesn't make sense don't worry about it.

I love this game, it's very addicting and difficult, but satisfying to play when you learn to not die. My one issue is that a lot of obstacles seem to blend in to the background, for example, sometimes I fail to notice the upcoming lasers and die to them, as well as the yellow striped blocks, they just blend in to the background too much with the yellow crane sometimes. I wish there was a option to make obstacles stand out more, like with outlines or to make the more pronounced.

Excellent game and pretty much the best runner I've ever played (I'm yet to try Canabalt). I love the art, the music, the background story and setting, and most importantly the gameplay is what you'd expect from the likes of Super Meat Boy and Dustforce. My only issues are nitpicks at this point. In rare cases for example, you can lose to obstacles blending with the environment and background.

Hi Ali, thank you! You really have to try Canabalt, it is superb. Fun fact: The composer of Dustforce also worked on the Run or Die Soundtrack! Regarding the nitpick: You are right on that, there may or may not come an update at some point trying to alleviate that issue.
