Don't get caught

Don't get caught. As the city witch, you must help light up the runes to complete the ritual and release the glitch. But watch out — after you move, enemies and obstacles do too, so plan your moves carefully!

Get the runes. You can move horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. Get the city witch to light up the runes and release the glitches. Be careful, and don't get caught.

What is it about?

The visuals in Cityglitch are unique and distinctive, as the game carries a retro, pixelated art style that is rather nostalgic. The pixels are rather large compared to other pixel art titles, so it reminds me of my old [CRT monitors]( with [MS-DOS]( While the graphics feel more like 8-bit than anything else, I still found the various characters and objects to be pretty identifiable once you get start playing. Cityglitch is full of bright and vibrant neon colors, so it's definitely eye candy. Animations are smooth and fluid, with no lag on my iPhone 7. Cityglitch also features an eerie chiptune soundtrack that is delightful to listen to and adds to the overall mood of the game.

App Store Description

Glitches are trapped in the city! Go city witch, fly between rooftops to light the ancient runes of power. Light them to complete the ritual and set the glitches free.

Beware! Glitches take on many forms. They haunt the rooftops as traps, spooks, and dark things that skitter. Scaredy cats will block your path and fearsome beasts will face you. Learn their movements to outwit them, and you'll progress to new cities with new challenges.

Cityglitch is a game of small, bite-sized puzzles. Take turns moving around the board as glitches move and react to you. If a glitch catches you it will restart the level, but don't worry, with each attempt you'll learn more clues to complete it. Cityglitch starts with simple puzzles but ramps up quickly to challenge you!
