App Description

"A fast, well-designed endless runner"
– Indiegames.com
"A fresh feel, like a hardcore twist on Halfbrick's classic, Monster Dash."
– Touch Arcade, 4/5
"Pixel perfect (circa 1989), and the off-colour monochrome is spot on."
– Pocket Gamer, 7/10

Jump in the shoes of Jack B. Nimble and master the whip in this cute, retro auto runner. Leap and dash across spooky hilltops, gothic cityscapes, dank dungeons and more!

With a score system based on player accuracy and distance travelled, timing and skill are key to achieving a position atop the leaderboard. Are you nimble enough?

- High speed side-scrolling action
- Authentic retro Game Boy era visuals
- Accessible single input control scheme - just jump and whip!
- 8 characters to choose from
- 6 endless, increasingly difficult levels to master
