Icelandic mobile game receives rave reviews
The Berlin-based Klang games, formed by veterans of Iceland's CCP Games (Eve Online) and Icelandic artists released ReRunners, a mobile game in July which has received excellent reviews internationally.
ReRunners is a game where you run, jump and use devious weapone to become the fastest runner of all time. It's available for free on App Store and Google Play.
According to Klang games, with ReRunners they set out to create a mobile game that respects real gamers and offers a core gaming experience accessible anywhere. "While the game focuses on multiplayer races, it does so asynchronously by allowing you to race against the ghosts of other players, thus enabling anyone to play against their friends or other people you don’t care about, at anytime."
“We wanted to create a game that offers players a deep multiplayer experience, without overcomplicating the gameplay," explains Mundi Vondi, co-founder of Klang Games. "Depending on how a player chooses to play, ReRunners can be one of the most sweat-inducing, thumb-trembling, competitive mobile gaming experiences ever. Or, a casual, open-world platformer, perfect for bathroom breaks. What thrills me is imagining how skilled players will becom, the ReRunners Beta community has already set the bar high, outdoing the Devs. I can't wait to see how the battle for becoming the ultimate Runner will turn out!”
The ReRunners experience goes beyond just racing by offering players a vast and surreal open-world environment to explore. This colorful land holds a variety of things to collect, hidden stars to grab, and fruit to replenish your character's energy.
