The Conduit dev bringing endless runner Le Vamp to iOS today
High Voltage Software, the developer of hardcore Wii FPS The Conduit, is exploring the other side of the family-friendly spectrum with Le Vamp, an endless runner starring a cartoonish vampire boy, out on the App Store for $2.

Le Vamp has players manipulate the world around the main character, rather than controlling him directly, as he attempts to outrun an angry mob. High Voltage has its eyes on Andoid systems for another project, The Conduit HD, coming to Tegra-powered Androids on March 14.

High Voltage Software Releases Le Vamp, a Whimsical Endless Runner for iOS

Hoffman Estates, IL – March 14th, 2013 – High Voltage Software, Inc., the 20-year industry veteran and independent video game developer with a history of action-oriented games, announced today the release of its first original mobile game, Le Vamp, a gothic-themed endless runner designed exclusively for mobile devices.

Like other little boys, Le Vamp loves to go outside and play, but this gets a bit more challenging when you're not actually a little boy, but a little Vampire!

Le Vamp offers a novel twist on the endless runner genre. Rather than controlling the character, the player manipulates other elements in the game to help Le Vamp traverse the world. Simple gestures allow players to stun foes so that Le Vamp can destroy them, remove obstacles, or block deadly sunbeams from hitting the little vampire.

If Le Vamp can just stay ahead of the angry mob, he'll have the time of his afterlife!

"We wanted to put a unique spin on the runner genre, and by letting the players control the environment instead of the character, I think we've succeeded," stated Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer of High Voltage Software. "This approach offers something special for casual and hardcore gamers alike."

"To create Le Vamp's world, we focused on bringing console production values and character design to the mobile marketplace," Kerry J. Ganofsky, CEO and founder of High Voltage Software. "We knew just how well this approach was working when team members from other projects volunteered to work on Le Vamp in their off-time!"

Le Vamp is now available for just $1.99!
