The runner/platforming genre on mobile is by now quite saturated with games of all shapes, sizes and colours, so it takes quite a lot to be noticed. Nevertheless, one title from Brisbane, Australia-based Spunge Games managed to catch my eye, and from the look of the trailer, looks to have put its own unique spin on the genre. Cartoon Survivor, as the story goes, is a TV show that requires a new star after the last hero’s demise – enter Doo Doo, the latest hero to try and survive the prehistoric terrors of Cartoon Survivor. Check out the pre-release trailer below which includes some snippets of gameplay:

As you can see below, each level sees you assume control of Doo Doo as he runs through obstacles and hazards to finish each run before the dynamite on his back explodes. From the look of the art design, Cartoon Survivor looks like it will be a visual feast throughout its four different environments – Spunge Games is a spin-off company from animation company, Liquid Animation, so it’s no surprise there is some visual expertise in there.

Spunge Games says that Cartoon Survivor will be launching on Android (and iOS) in the coming weeks. What do you think about Cartoon Survivor? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    Thats pretty cool. This is similar and yet blows my mind that no one has ever made a mario themed game, like a replica. Theres some cheesy 2D side scroll knock offs, but why has no one created a Mario 64 look alike, yet.

      Probably has something to do with copyright.
