Streamline Studios and Coke Zero released a really cool iOS arcade game called Axon Runners for $3.99 as a universal iOS game for the IPhone, IPad and IPod Touch. Streamline Studios describes “Axon Runners as a futuristic 3D hoverboard action game for mobile”.
Streamline Studios set Axon Runners in a city of the future called
Persepolis where the main character named Julio searches for two friends who have disappeared while trying to discover the secrets of the mysterious energy tunnels, called the Nightstream. You must join Julio in his dangerous mission to unravel the trail of corporate espionage that will lead them through the city of Persepolis to save the two missing Axon Runners and eventually themselves.
We think the game controls really make Axon Runners unique. Then screen displays the character floating in the air on an elevated skateboard. You swipe the screen slowly to move him forward. You swipe quickly to get him to jump. You tap the screen with two fingers to blast your enemies. Jumping higher accelerates your flight through the air testing your eye hand coordination. In other words it gets harder to prevent a crash.
Here’s a more detailed description of Axon Runners from Streamline Studios:
“Axon Runners features 15 levels of fast-paced gameplay that will test players’ skill and agility in three modes of play, including Campaign, Challenge and Nightstream. First players must choose a character from six available at launch, each with a different outfit and look, and then a hoverboard. But with 10 different hoverboards available at launch, each with unique attributes, such as slowing down the time matrix to accomplish “super jumps” or shoot shockwaves to destroy obstacles in the way, the choice must be made carefully. Players are rewarded for in-game accomplishments and tasked to collect energy orbs throughout each level, providing hours of replayability. Join the ranks of the Axon Runners and enter the Nightstream now!”
