[prMac.com] Southampton, Pennsylvania - Independent mobile game developer, Forsbit LLC today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Monster Run 1.0.1, their challenging horror-themed platformer game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Monster Run is the game for the player who rooted for the monsters when they watched the old Universal horror movies. The monsters have escaped the lab where they were studied and had evil experiments performed on them, now they just want to get home safely. Players will jump over obstacles, use gravity to conquer levels, collect coins, gather rewards to unlock the rest of the monsters on the way home.
Monster Run is all about timing and dexterity. While the gameplay appears simple, players will find the challenge quickly amps up, as they progress level by level into the depths of the game. The controls initially consist of a simple tap of the screen to jump over obstacles, but as the challenge increases, devious twists are thrown at the player. They'll encounter levels where they're forced to run and jump upside down, and fall upwards to conquer a level. The game forces players to think with a slightly warped perspective about things if they expect to safely reach the portal and warp to the next level.
"I always loved the old monster movies, and yes, I'll admit that I sometimes rooted for the monsters to win. Monster Run is the result of my love for those old horror films, and my desire to help them escape their chains," says Forsbit President, Pavel Avramenko. "I also love the old pixel-art platformer games like Castlevania, so I tried to incorporate the simple game controls and the challenging game play those games brought to the screen. I think players are going to find Monster Run to be a chillingly enjoyable challenge."
