Brace yourselves! We have another potentially awesome new App about to hit the App Store on June 28th. Enter: Sketchman, a brand new runner game from the people down at Miniclip and Zionplay. The two studios have teamed up to send us another fun App for our ever-growing collections, and this one looks pretty unique.
Enter the world of our hero, Sketchman! A world filled with crazy doodle art and, of course, lots and lots of peril! Your duty is to help Sketchman through a variety of fast-paced levels while utilizing his arsenal of abilities: jumping, double jumping, gliding, and shooting, to name a few. Sketchman can also obtain mighty weapons and powerups to aid him on his quest. There are currently six to find, and more are planned to come with future updates.
Sketchman has some other fun elements added in for good measure. Among these are several boss battles, which I find quite interesting in runners. There are also missions you can run to earn coins, and a GameCenter leaderboard with which to compete with your friends or complete strangers. Who will rise to the top as the world’s best Sketchman?
Sketchman will launch for the iPhone and iPad. It does not appear to have an official site yet, but stay tuned for more information as it comes!
