GDC 2014: Gear Jack - Black Hole adds stealth and Metroid spin to endless running

Gear Jack: Black Hole is an upcoming endless runner we got to check out at GDC 2014. In this Crescent Moon title, we take control of an adorable little robot and control his leaps so he doesn't get maimed by the various dangers peppered throughout the level. While the character is usually plowing onwards at breakneck speeds, you've got to make sure he slows things down and tiptoes when traversing the lairs of especially bad nasties.

Besides that, players can also shrink the hero down into a ball to fit into small areas, not unlike sci-fi heroine Samus. Along the way, players collect gears which can be spent on various character upgrades and power-ups. It's a cute little runner with enough new to keep things interesting. Keep an eye out for it when it launches in April for free.
