Soon to be released by Cherrypick Games, Now Escape! is a new endless runner game for Android devices. The idea of this runner game is fairly simple. Players will be dragging their shape, in this case an orange star, around the screen as it moves forward. There are various obstacles that need to be avoided, but they are also capable of rotating, pivoting, or otherwise transforming, and they do so without notice. This means you'll need to have some pretty decent reflexes as well.
