Canabalt epitomizes the expression "simple pleasure." At its core, this is a game about running. From the first frame of animation, your little hero takes off like a locomotive, picking up speed as he leaps across rooftops and over small obstacles. If he even tumbles into a crate or chair, he loses a little speed but keeps going. That speed loss, though, can prove catastrophic when he reaches a gap that is suddenly too wide to cross without adequate velocity.
