GooglePlayAnnounceSunbreak Games (www.sunbreakgames.com) announces the launch of Buddy & Me on Google Play, Feb. 5th. An endless adventure about friendship, Buddy & Me is the story of a young boy who each night dreams of exploring a never-ending treehouse world of platforms, ropes, bridges and tire swings with his giant, floppy-eared, flying companion, Buddy.

Led by veteran game designer Jason Behr (Metroid PrimeHalo 4), the Buddy & Me team has re-imagined the “endless runner” as an approachable, charming story of adventure, wonder, and friendship appropriate for players of all ages.

Combining the high-quality painted backgrounds and cel-shaded characters reminiscent of familiar animated films, Buddy & Me wins over the hearts of kids, parents, and gamers alike. Run, jump, bounce, glide, and fly together with Buddy through an infinite treehouse filled with interactive obstacles, singing bunnies, and breathtaking natural landmarks inspired by the Pacific Northwest.

  • See how far you and Buddy can explore before it’s time to wake up.
  • Never see the same layout twice – freshly arranged obstacles each time you play.
  • Swing from Buddy’s tail or bounce off him like a trampoline to cross large gaps.
  • Collect glowing star seeds to fly up into the clouds with Buddy.
  • Collect swarms of flying angel bunnies for more time – yes, singing, flying bunnies!
  • Level of challenge adapts to how you play, appropriate for all ages & skills.
  • Share scores with Leaderboards and Achievements.
