London, UK – October 7, 2013 – Marvelous Games has today announced a major update to RunBot, the graphically stunning endless runner that has been downloaded over 2.5 million times on the AppStore since its launch on August 22.
The latest version of this ‘fast twitch’ arcade game introduces completely redesigned touch/swipe controls that enable even more split-second reactions and moves from players – letting them take their runs to an entirely new level.
RunBot is a game set in the year 2371, in a 3-D futuristic cyberpunk landscape.
Players are cast in the role of RunBot, an artificially intelligent machine that has rebelled against its role as a next-generation killing machine. They must use intuitive touch/swipe motions to control fluid freerunning Parkour moves – vaulting static obstacles, sliding underneath electrified fences, leaping vast chasms – anything to keep ahead of chasing authorities. It’s not just about running – powerful cutting-edge laser and missile weapons systems help RunBot blast a way to freedom.
“Since RunBot’s launch, we’ve been continuously listening to our player community and asking for their feedback to improve the game. Their reaction has been overwhelmingly positive – but our hard-core gaming audience did ask if we could make the game’s controls even more responsive,” says Jonathan Nevill, RunBot Product Manager, MAQL Europe. “Runbot is an incredibly challenging game that requires supremely fast reflexes and snap judgments– now we’ve introduced controls that give players an even greater opportunity to demonstrate their skill.”
