I suppose it was inevitable that the behind the back endless runner genre would start seeing some serious crossovers sooner or later, and one we're particularly excited for is Selosoft's Running Quest. It vaguely reminds me of games like Puzzle Quest 2 [$2.99] or Dungeon Raid [$0.99] in that they're taking a game type that works incredible well on iOS and adding a layer of complexity to the mix that elevates it beyond the simple die and try again loop that games like Temple Run 2 [Free] and similar have.

It's scheduled to be released on February 26th, and the developers are super active in our forums. Definitely add this game to your watch list if you're like me and somehow can enjoy even the simplest games once they add RPG elements into the mix.

    Finally a game I know about before you post it here. The dev is very active and sounds very interesting.

    How isn't this one hell of a temple run rip off but with enemies ?( not complaining, that was actually a question) AROUND 50 and 60 fps on iphone 5? So its not locked a 60? I fail to see why! But anyway 50 is already more than enough here. On the bright side looks like a good game for endless runners people.

    Hmmm... where have I seen this before?

  • Zeillusion

    Looks pretty cool! I've gotten tired of runners but this looks fresh. I used to be addicted to temple run. It was the same thing on repeat but this looks so much better. An rpg runner, great idea. Can't wait for the release!

    It's been done before!

    Needs more zombies, sorry.
    What I see is some fairly competent engineering. BG integration is especially well done. Art and tiles are, for the most part, above average.
    And it's all sadly unremarkable because I've seen it all before a million times. I'm not sure what the developers goal is but unique it is not. Thats distressing because, like I said, it looks solid.
    The inner fanboy in me would love to know what capture card they used so's I could avoid it. Video mud.

    Another endless runner Templerun-ish.

    Seems like a good idea, but the execution just seems so generic. I mean the graphics and animation look like they came from some stock library.

    • Salt Abdullah

      I agree with you - stock library graphics. Temple Run 2 at least had gorgeous graphics for an endless runner. The gameplay elements intrigue me - but with the bland Altered Beast graphics combined with tons of brown and yellows makes me sick. As my friends tell me - it's all about the gameplay, not the graphics. True - but I prefer having both.
