Canabalt has to be one of the simplest games out there. The game is developed by Semi Secret Software and published by Beat Shapers and features a small character constantly running in the right direction to get away from utter destruction after his world is taken over by an alien invasion.
As you’re running, you are faced with a bunch of obstacles that you must hurdle over in order to gain momentum and last longer in the game. The only control you have in the game is when and how far you jump. There is really no objective or end to this game. The only purpose you have is to get further and further every time you play to get a higher score, tracked by meters.
Canabalt was originally a game made for the iPhone. But recently Canabalt has been listed as a Playstation Mini game on the PSN network and can be played on the PS3 and the PSP.
Canabalt is $2.99 on the Playstation Network. If you like games that don’t take much thought to play and you also like hip pixelated graphics, then you might enjoy this game. When it comes down to it, this game is not that bad for what it is. You’ll have fun playing, but only for a limited time. It will not be long before you just put the controller down and walk away.
I give this game a seven out of 10.
