As you progress through levels you'll unlock more challenging gameplay and hazards, including: spikes, chasms, zip-lines, slides, ledges, holes, buttons, spiderbots, bouncer bombs, water, laser walls, meteors, security drones, aliens, mutant sharks, chompers, stompers, lava, steam vents, blast vents, reversers, stoppers, portals, spike rollers, and more! 175 challenging levels will require timing and puzzle solving skills to complete and unlock hundreds of playable characters including: Ninja, Alien, Rocket, Karate, Robo, 60s, Zombie, Burglar, Tiger, Egyptian and even the Freaky Chicken and Future Banana! Will this be your next Diversion?

History

Diversion has had over 5 million downloads on iOS and Android, with an average 4.6/5.0 star rating. It has been a featured game in the iTunes App Store and Google Play. Diversion started out as a side project (or diversion) from our big game (still) in development called Hover World. Because the scope of Hover World was so large we decided to build-out and release one of the mini-games as a standalone offering.

iFanZine.com (Rating: 5.0/5.0)
No interface? No problem! After learning how limited the player’s input options are in the Edis Brothers’ “Diversion,” I went in determined to loathe it. Instead, after a few hours leaping, sliding, shimmying, gliding and climbing through its levels, I came out on the other side a firm believer. Behold the running game to end all running games! ifanzine.com.

DigitallyDownloaded.net (Rating: 4.0/5.0)
Diversion is named perfectly. This simple little one button platformer is bright and charming, and utterly absorbing. Playing this on the train I had nearby commuters watching, when usually they have the good grace to at least pretend to be looking elsewhere. Playing this at home in bed, I realised to my great horror that the time had ticked over to 1am. It’s one of those games that pull you completely out of reality and absorb you into a simple, but effective, arcade experience. digitallydownloaded.net.

If you’ve been thinking to yourself “I don’t need another running game”, get Diversion anyway. If you’ve never played a running game before, get Diversion. It’s extremely fun and quite addictive. touchmyapps.com.

AppAdvice.com
What separates Diversion from most other iDevice endless runners, platformers and on-rails side scrollers is the gorgeous over-the-shoulder perspective along with the game’s 3D graphics. The graphics are really great and will make you feel part of the action. appadvice.com.
