Out next week is Tiny Runners: BOOM!, an arcade style 4 player platform racing game from Garage Clans that hopes to be rather fun.

The game has you playing as a tiny runner, attempting to dodge attacks while also throwing weapons at your fellow competitors. Offering cross-device action, including playing with your fellow Android players in the future, you’ll be able to compete in a battle of wits and speed.

It almost looks kind of like Mario Kart without the karts, thanks to the many bombs, saw blades, and even ray guns that you can use to thwart your foe.

Tiny Runners: BOOM! is out August 12. Check out the teaser trailer in the meantime.

Ms. Splosion Man Celebrates a New Update with a Sale!

Posted by on August 2nd, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It’s only natural that something as volatile as an anthropomorphic explosion would act spontaneously. Hence the out-of-nowhere sale Ms. Splosion Man is currently having.

You can grab this fantastic platformer for 1/3 of the original asking price (down to $0.99 from $2.99), but that’s not all. Twisted Pixel has also upgraded an optimized the heck out of it with:

- Support for cross-device savegames via iCloud
- Adjusted in-game economy
- Updated UI artwork
- Numerous bug fixes and optimizations

Seriously, if you haven’t tried Ms. Splosion Man yet, you’re just about out of excuses at this point.
