Side-scrolling action game Run Like Hell! announced for PS Vita
Hello PlayStation Blog. My name is Artur Gosk, Producer at Mass Creation in Warsaw, Poland. You may remember me writing here last year about Draw Slasher – our one of a kind arcade slasher for PS Vita. This time I’m here to introduce you to our latest PS Vita game – Run Like Hell!
Imagine you’re a fearless treasure hunter. Place yourself on a peaceful tropical island. Wait! What?! Spotted by a local tribe of hungry cannibals you have two choices: check out if you taste okay with garlic or Run Like Hell! Not quite a ‘joyrun’ you’d imagine. But hey, you’ve got the adrenaline to speed up and power-ups to slow down the pursuit.
Jump through hoops, slide under obstacles and escape the pursuit while admiring a vivid hand-drawn tropical island with procedurally generated levels. You can sweat in a jungle, run through a calm village, avoid the sun in cool caverns, and even get melancholic at dusk on the beach. There’s a bonus level too, but it’s much cooler than you might expect.
The game offers three modes: ‘The Great Escape’ (story mode), ‘Arcade’ – endless run on various locations and the icing on the cake – ‘Online’ modes containing ‘Versus’, ‘Tournaments’ and ‘Challenges’, where you can dare you friends to beat your records. You can even pick your preferable runner from 12 characters. If you’re into the challenge climb up the global leaderboards and complete 50 exacting objectives.
Run Like Hell! will be available on PlayStation Store from 17th September.
Remember to properly warm-up before the run and see you on the island
