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.

The latter was named High Risers and it is being described as a climber and also as an endless runner. However, if you, as a gamer, look closely at what the title really is, you will definitely realise that it has pretty strong platformer roots. Players will be tasked to control a running character as it goes through a building that’s under construction.

High Risers

Just like a typical platform game, this new release will involve tapping on the screen, jumping from roof to roof and bouncing to collect coins. 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’. Traditional folks might not love the fact this is really taking place, but it is happening and it might help to embrace the situation and the game that we been referring to!
