Arcade Platformer Don’t Look Back Dashes Onto Mobile
An addicting new retro platformer that feels like a spooky spin on the original Mario Bros arcade game titled Don’t Look Back has been released on mobile devices. Created by indie developer Zhang Zhibin, Don’t Look Back is a simple but elegant survival platformer that has players leaping about randomly generated arenas collecting coins and literally running from their own shadows. In this haunting retro runner greed is definitely bad as the act of picking up loot will inevitably spawn deathly doppelgangers that follow the player’s every move.
As one of many unlockable characters it’s up to players to pick up coins and dodge enemies using a traditional platforming control scheme. Building up a large stack of cash will result in a long conga line of shadow monsters following right behind and to make matters even more complicated there are also boss monsters that can unleash crazy spells to keep players on their toes. It’s not all doom and gloom however as power ups will occasionally spawn to help even things out. Platforming aficionados will want to take a gander out Don’t Look Back.
Don’t Look Back is free to download on Android and iOS.
