If you're into runners, tonight's release Outland Games might be up your alley. It's a 2D, side-scrolling runner set deep in the Monday Night Combat Universe. In the game, you play as a contestant on a reality TV show that tasks you with running for your life. As you run, you'll have to do the usual: pick up coins, avoid obstacles, and kill stuff.

This one has a couple of things going for it. For one, its combo mechanic, which allows you to string together attacks and jumps, give the action a unique kind of locomotion. Also, the equipment system offers some pretty funny gear. For example, this afternoon, Eli and I used a candy cane and chef hat to defeat the endless robot hordes.

If you'd like to get a closer look before Outland launches tonight, just check out what we've got below. It'll hit at 99¢ as a Universal app, by the way.

    Plain endless runners become boring after 5 minutes. Doesn't it have checkpoints or another game-mode?

    I bought Outland Games this morning and i'm already boring. There are no questq or missions. You just run, fight and get coins. Armors and weapon are just here to wear a new skin. There are capacities :/

      Yes, the game looks really plain. You just run for no reason.

      Glad I passed on this. Check out God of Blades instead. The only runner I play.

      At this point, I'm convinced all the endless runner coverage is just some kind of cruel joke.
