App Giveaway: Run Roo Run HD for iPad

Run Roo Run HD is a platformer game where you, a kangaroo, must avoid obstacles by jumping, swinging, riding clouds, and launching from cannons. Each level is a single screen, not scrolling.

This is a great little game, but the main levels are not very challenging. It took me less than an hour to complete the main levels in all 20 chapters. The extreme levels, however, are very difficult - some even too difficult, in my opinion. Even though I didn't feel particularly challenged, I enjoyed playing the game - I was able to casually play while watching an episode of Battlestar Galactica!

Your joey has been captured and you need to get him back!

Hop, skip, and jump your way across tons of unique and interesting obstacles in the Australian outback! Run Roo Run is a micro-platformer featuring single screen levels filled with unique, fun obstacles and easy to learn one-touch gameplay. Play for a few minutes, or a few hours; your journey to Sydney always picks up where you left off!

  • Over 420 Levels!
  • Get 10 new free levels every week!
