Poor little Le Vamp. All he wants is to go outside and play. But poor little Le Vamp happens to be a little vampire boy. And he has no sooner gotten outside than an angry mob appears, armed with torches, pitchforks, and … French bread?

Thus begins Le Vamp’s supposedly endless run from the angry mob in High Voltage Software’s new iOS game, Le Vamp.

I know what you’re thinking: “Not another endless running game?!” Oui, Le Vamp is another endless running game. But it’s not just another endless running game.

You see, Le Vamp is not a behind-the-back endless runner like Temple Run, Subway Surfers, Agent Dash, and a million other endless runners. Le Vamp is a side-scrolling endless runner like Jetpack Joyride and Punch Quest.

But unlike most other endless runners, whether side-scrolling or otherwise, Le Vamp challenges you to perform the right actions on the things ahead of the main character rather than acting on the character himself.

To help Le Vamp evade capture, you have to do a number of things at the right circumstances.

You have to fling blood pigs toward him, but you have to fling garlic pigs away. You have to pull up Spudzies from the ground, but you have to push Le Wurst down. You have to tap the Pumpkin Pile three times, and you have to tap the sunbeams to protect Le Vamp.

Master all these actions to make Le Vamp’s run in the outside world as long as you can. Sure, they may sound easy on paper, but wait until you have to do all of those one after the other and things get really crazy.

Oh, and you also have to tap the francs, that is to say, coins along the way to collect them. You can then spend them for upgrades in the crypt, that is to say, the in-game store.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.1 or later, Le Vamp is available now in the App Store for $1.99.
