Hunger Games: Girl on Fire
is an autorunning / daring escape game made as a teaser tie-in for the The Hunger Games
movie, which is in turn an adaptation of the book trilogy by Suzanne Collins
. The player controls Katniss Everdeen as she escapes District 12 through the fence surrounding her district. She hunts in the woods for food for her family and the events take place before the Hunger Games start. Similar to Canabalt
made by the same developer, Katniss runs at a constant speed and this cannot be controlled by the player. Instead, a swipe across the screen makes the character alternate between a higher and a lower level to avoid hazards. A tap on the screen has Katniss shoot arrows at the Tracker Jackers that chase her. The Jackers either go after her directly or hover in the air to launch a projectile. After the woods setting there is an environment with a railroad to find a way back to District 12. The game includes a global ranking through Game Center.
