Hello, PlayStation.Blog. My name is Artur Gosk, producer at Mass Creation from Warsaw, Poland. You may remember me writing here last year about Draw Slasher — a one-of-a-kind arcade slasher on PS Vita. This time I’m here to introduce you to our latest 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 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 tropical island in hand-drawn graphics through 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.
Run Like Hell! offers 3 game modes: The Great Escape (story mode), Arcade (endless run on various locations), and 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 objectives.
Run Like Hell! will be available on PlayStation Store on September 16th.
We’d love to hear your thoughts. Please leave comments below. And remember to properly warm-up before the run — see you on the island.
