Dodge obstacles to DJ Lucky Charm’s music in Now Escape!, coming to Google Play this week

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.

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.
