Nekki launches iPhone and iPad versions of Facebook’s smash hit Stick Run
The Facebook game Stick Run has about 6 million monthly active users, more than 43 million “Likes” and is already one of the most successful Independent-PC-Games ever. The endless runner written by the only 16-year-old student Manuel Otto is about to capture mobile gaming platforms iOS and Android, now too.
Online gaming specialist Nekki has developed and published Stick Run’s mobile porting in close cooperation with the TigMar GmbH from Germany.
Nekki already had a surprise hit with the Parkour game Vector on both systems last winter. “Nekki is the perfect partner for Stick Run’s mobile porting.” says developer Manuel Otto. “The new version transfers the fun factor 1:1 from Facebook to iOS and Android! I am sure that the mobile game will delight millions of new players!”
The principle of the game is as simple as it is addictive: Stick Run challenges players to run as far as possible through a randomly generated side-scrolling level filled with deadly obstacles. These obstacles range from single crates to stacks of them, panes of glass and rotating saw blades. Running headlong into walls of crates or any saw blade ends the game, at which point players can restart and try again. Alongside the thrilling single player mode, the iOS and Android versions also deliver an exciting multiplayer race against three online-opponents from anywhere around the globe.
