"Canabalt is pure genius." -necessarygames.com"It's going to be quite some time before you find something so simple so thrilling again." -Offworld"I bought it last night, and next to Eliss and iDracula it's the best iPhone game I've yet played. The fast pace and one-button gameplay translate perfectly to Apple's ubiquitous little mobile device." -Rev. Burch, Destructoid"Canabalt is a fun diversion and sports slick, black and white pixel graphics." -IGN"This "daring escape" platformer is simply beautiful and beautifully simple." -Kotaku"Canabalt is actually much more intense than you'd assume of a game which requires a single finger to play." -GameSpy"It's all very lovely and full of poignant subtext. And awesomeness. Canabalt is a prime example of a simple idea executed extremely well." -JayIsGames"I have never seen a concept so richly and successfully realized in such a simple yet stunningly complete form. Canabalt represents the power and potential of small independent games." -gameinmind.com"Music is another component that is just perfect - it enhances the strange and unsettling setting of the game and also gives a sense of speed with a hint of hope that quick feet might be the salvation to the horror." -bartsnews.net"Fast load times combined with short (yet exciting) game sessions really make for an attractive game to play on a mobile device." -TouchArcade"Fantastic new ... iPhone game. Super-simple, pixel-perfect, great music and sound." - daringfireball.net
