High Risers: A platformer that is being called a climber or endless runner

These days, the platform gaming genre is getting remixed and with new features being added in-game, they are being called differently to better reflect their nature. Whether you agree to this or not, it is happening and one of the latest examples is Kumobius’s recent App Store and Google Play release.

Several other characters can be unlocked and they have all been designed to look like heroes that have already made a name for themselves (Super Mario, Sonic or Donkey Kong).

Do note that the developer mentioned that “if Leap Day and Canabalt had a baby”, High Risers is what it would most definitely look like! Some might agree, but again, it’s all about how good you are as an observer and how ready you are to accept the process what can possibly be called ‘genre amalgamation’.
