Don't Look Back - rComplex Bound for iOS

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The darkness is coming. It won't give up. Ever. The only option is to run. Dodge obstacles, plan ahead and only resort to direct conflict when there's absolutely no other choice. But most importantly: Never. Stop. Running.

InterWave Studios, in collaboration with EVENT Interactive, is bringing one of the best indie runners this side of Canabalt to iOS. rComplex is a beautifully stylized runner with a story. One that will only fully reveal itself to those with the fortitude and reflexes to brave all seven of the world's environments. Players control a nameless "running man" as he jumps, ducks, dodges and sprints from his seemingly omniscient pursuer.

Aside from looking super-awesome (no, really, look at those screens!) it also offers up a bit more variety than a standard runner. Each level involves running of a sort, certainly, but some use close-quarters to up the tension while others utilize lane-changing motorcycle chases. Plus there's that story I mentioned that can be uncovered through a combination of progress and item/secret discovery.

There's no official price announcement yet, but rComplex is due out at the end of February. All things considered, I don't think I mind having to wait another month to get some hands-on time. I'm fairly certain it'll be worth it.
