FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York – Dec. 4, 2013 – Intergalactic explorers can now rush to the App Store and then through the cosmos with Galaxy Run , an iOS single-screen auto-runner from Spiel Studios.

In Galaxy Run players assume the role of interstellar explorer Rez.  When cruising the cosmos in his spacecraft, Rez crashes through asteroids and is forced to land in an unknown territory filled with a host of hazards, from perilous plunges and razor sharp spikes to laser security systems, which only the players can help Rez navigate.

To guide Rez safely home, players must employ a variety of power-ups and abilities -- everything from gravity reversal to jetpacks and player firing cannons -- to tame the cosmos.

Spiel Studio has created a game that would be easier to play than most auto-runners and incorporate straightforward controls -- yet require a learning curve to conquer, so the title would entertain casual and hardcore gamers alike.

“Our goal was to create a title that was easy enough for players to quickly understand but with enough fun and depth to keep them engaged,” Mohit Sureka, CEO, Spiel Studios, said.  “Auto-runners with single-screen levels still remain a fairly unexplored genre and this game should help fill that gap. With Galaxy Run we are showing how fun and addictive these games can be.”

Game Features

  • Run through 360 levels set on three separate themed worlds: Deep Space (Perseus), Desert Planet (Drak-Nok) and  Blue World (Aquarian)
  • Eighteen gameplay features including anti-gravity, speed boosters, grappling hooks, springboards, player firing cannon, enemy guns, and alien robots
  • Simple one-touch pick up and play mechanics with enough difficulty and depth for hardcore gamers
  • Hours of gameplay with an enormous amount of content
 

Galaxy Run is available on the App Store for $0.99 USD.  The game features optional micro transactions that enhance the play experience with additional abilities including slow motion, ghost play -- the ability to run through obstacles -- and level skips.

Spiel Studios will periodically provide free updates with new chapters and also release a level editor through which players can create and share their own designed levels and build a community.
