    We at Onkaworks are incredibly proud to present our second game Canyon Rush, and it's being released tomorrow, Friday July 20th for free!

    We were able to show an early version of it off to Brad from TouchArcade at WWDC and he posted about it and called it "a new runner with a cool hook." Here's our full iTunes description.

    We couldn't be more proud and excited to see what you all have to say both here and on the App Store reviews when it's available on July 20th! We'd offer promo codes—but it's free!

    I'm enjoying this nice little runner but imo they missed the chance to make something really cool out of it. Where are the power ups? As far as I can see it's possible to unlock ONE power-up for 3000coins.. come on, i played 5 games and got 140 coins and.. unlocking a power up? Not a fan of this. Just let them be in the mystery boxes on the beginning and let us upgrade it in the shop. Some achievements would be nice too. And maybe an option to jump with a simple tap. Swiping works fine but it's a bit unfamiliar to swipe for a jump.
    Maybe you plan to update it regularly, that would be nice because Canyon Rush has a lot of potential :)

    The art style is very nice. Simple look but great fun.

    Thank you! I was responsible for all of the art and was trying a style a bit outside of my comfort zone, so that means a lot! I'm really happy to hear that!

    Since we have (optional) IAP, we plan to keep the game free!

    Well, we DO plan on updating it regularly :) We actually have the beginnings of quite a few of the things you mentioned in the works. But really glad you're enjoying it!
