iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
Gameplay looks similar to recent hit, Temple Run. The player controls the runner by tilting the iOS device left and right to avoid obstacles and jumps by tapping the left side of the screen. In addition, the running character is carrying another female character that can fire her gun at incoming monsters by tapping the right side of the screen.
The game has some high quality 3-D graphics but the developers claim that it will work on some older devices such as the iPhone 3GS and iPad 1. According to comments on YouTube from the developers, it uses the Unity game engine. Also, the pricing isn’t fixed but it “won’t be too expensive.”
The storyline is supposedly inspired by H. P. Lovecraft. There’s a glimpse of a huge monster bursting out of a large building at the end of the trailer attached below.
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.
