You Can't Parkour Here: Canabalt

Late last night, Comrade Ariana forwarded me the webgame joy of Canabalt at me. It's a one-button velocity-based randomly-generating oddly-atmospheric parkour webgame and is - as another friend puts it - probably what Mirror's Edge should have been like. I got 2900-odd last night, but my skills seems to have atrophied overnight. I also recommend turning down the sound to the bare minimum ("-" reduces it) and play it to the sound of Music Go Music's Warm In the Shadows (Youtube link or Spotify one), as it's leisurely propulsiveness - and sheer length - seemed to compliment the game elegantly. No, really.
