The Hunger Games sprints for its life in endless runner on iOS, Android

S. Prell, @SamPrell

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire came out yesterday, but before you run off to your local theaters to learn the fate of Katniss, Peeta and the gang, you can start running (and never stop) with an official tie-in app on Android and iOS. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Panem Run by Reliance Games lets you play as characters from the Hunger Games trilogy as you sprint across Panem, inspiring the various Districts.

The Hunger Games is a series ripe for endless runners, it seems - before the first film was released in March 2012, Canabalt creator Adam Saltsman created The Hunger Games: Girl on Fire, a 2D endless runner with art from Super Crate Box's Paul Veer and music by Super Meat Boy's Daniel Baranowsky. It was much cuter than the film or book which, if you haven't seen or read yet, you should probably do. They're kind of a thing.
