Canabalt Review

We demand more depth all the time from our games. We expect alternate endings, skill trees, side quests, and endless hours of gameplay. For once, though, we appreciated a game that takes the opposite approach: creating an extremely compact, thoroughly memorable minute or so of intensity.

According to the developer, Canabalt was developed in the space of about five days as part of a micro-game experiment. This game’s impact is sure to be felt much longer than five days, though. Like a colony in a petri dish, or a one-act play, Canabalt offers just a self-contained glimpse of a larger world outside.

Canabalt is an interesting experiment, and it’s one we enjoyed. It’s a game that measures your involvement in minutes, not hours, but we’re confident you’ll still be thinking about it for weeks or months to come.
