Sci-fi endless-runner RunBot© launches massive content update with custom robots and missions

2.8 million downloads and counting – version 2.0 of popular iOS game now features new RunBot models, customised skins, in-game missions & more

London, UK – December 29, 2013 –  Marvelous Games has today announced a major update to RunBot, the graphically stunning endless runner that has been downloaded over 2.8 million times on the AppStore since its launch on August 22.  RunBot 2.0 is a comprehensive update with a wide array of features including a varied mission system, striking new RunBot models and skins with enhanced in-game abilities, daily rewards, a score-multiplier system and a host of other customisation opportunities.

RunBot is a free to play game set in the year 2371, in a 3-D futuristic cyberpunk landscape.  Players are cast in the role of RunBot, an artificially intelligent robot that has rebelled against its role as a next-generation killing machine.  They must use intuitive touch/swipe motions to control fluid freerunning Parkour moves – vaulting static obstacles, sliding underneath electrified fences, leaping vast chasms – anything to keep ahead of chasing authorities.  It’s not just about running – powerful cutting-edge laser and missile weapons systems help RunBot blast a way to freedom.

“The development team at Bravo Games has been working incredibly hard over the past few months to bring RunBot fans this content rich update,” says Jonathan Nevill, RunBot Product Manager, MAQL Europe. “Our players love RunBot, and have been quick to suggest new improvements that we’ve included - customising RunBot and a mission system were both top of their list!”
