Endless runners and Tetris clones are two game genres that are sure to elicit a yawn from most seasoned mobile gamers, but what if you had both in one game... at the same time? You've just imagined Hazumino, a new side-scrolling runner on Android. Not only do you have to jump at the right time, you need to make sure there's something to jump on. Here, let this weird intro video tell the tale.

Hazumino requires you to do two completely different things at once. On the left side of the screen, you have to tap to make your character jump at the right time to avoid running into any obstacles. Over on the right, you use swipe controls to arrange all the classic Tetromino blocks in a bridge that your character can traverse. You aren't trying to fit the blocks together perfectly like in a real game of Tetris, but the smoother the surface, the easier it is to keep your character alive.

The graphics are simple and blocky, but kind of fun. Everything looks like it's made out of Tetris bricks. It's cute, if you're into that style. Same goes for the music, which is a chiptune deal. There is a free trial version you might want to check out first. This is not an easy game. Flipping back and forth between carefully timed taps and geometric puzzling might make your brain hurt.
