Runaway: A Road Adventure has made the leap from PC to iOS, having launched in the App Store earlier today. Priced at $4.99, the point-and-click puzzler is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and features support for Apple’s own social gaming network, Game Center.
Developer Bulkypix explains the premise behind Runaway in the app’s release notes: “Brilliant science student Brian is getting ready to join the prestigious UC Berkeley, but his life is turned upside-down when he gets caught up in some business involving a stolen crucifix and the mafia.”
