Made in 5 days using my Flixel framework. Music by the one and only Danny B! Recommend playing with great speakers or headphones and cranking this sh*t up.

Addicting and challenging with great music, graphics and atmosphere. Couldn't ask for much more in a game like this!

It's all about the atmosphere. And the music. The dark, dark atmosphere. The end of the world. Why are exploding jet engines falling from the sky? Why are giant robots battling in the distance? Who were the engineers who designed all these collapsing buildings, and can they be sued? How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop? The world may never know.

One of the few games that can actually give me the shivers with the music, I'll say that, if you listen to it on the right speakers on the right computer. And if it's decently loud. Actually I can only think of one other game that can do that. Ascendancy. The music for the Minions. Though that one I guess beats this because this'll only do it if I have the external speakers connected and have the volume way up, whereas the Ascendancy Minions music once made me double over on soft volume. But I may have also been having a seizure at the same time, one can never be completely sure about these things.

I regret never successfully recording a game when I got to 40k+. The farthest I ever got with a screen recorder going was 35890 meters and that was only a horrible tiny little window that didn't capture the whole story. I got 39050 once with it going but it crashed. Too much RAM needed by it or something. I also took it as a challenge to make a shitty fanfiction. Which is up on deviantart, if anyone reading this is a glutton for punishment and hasn't been tortured enough lately. It's kind of, shall we say, hard, to come up with a backstory that isn't completely retarded for WHY this man is running indefinitely along rooftops during the apocalypse, or why he can run in excess of 100 miles per hour. Just clark kent on a morning jog to the daily planet, tee hee. But then the fall shouldn't kill him when he misses. He does kind of look like Clark Kent. The Michael Jackson rendition of Clark Kent, that is. It's too bad Michael Jackson is dead, Michael Jackson playing Clark Kent would be hilarious, I'd definitely go see that Superman movie, even if it was directed by Michael Bay, which any real Canabalt movie would inevitably have to be, especially with the giant robots in the background. Or I could get one of those camera hats, and make my own 1st person canabalt movie. That would be a hell of a suicide method, run and jump along rooftops until I fall and die. I bet it'd go viral. Too bad I'd not get to live to see the results.

A very addicting game. The music has a great sense of intense scale and the sound effects of the character running across buildings, through glass, and by spaceships is very intense. A classic game.

My best was 6427m, I think it's quite challenging this game
