The Aussies at Fruit Ninja creator Halfbrick Studios unveiled its next iPhone title coming out this August 19th: Monster Dash, a literal run'n gun action game starring Barry Steakfries, the hero of Halfbrick's PSN game Age of Zombies.

This might look like just another Canabalt rip-off, what with you controlling a constantly running character as he hops across rooftops, but Monster Dash has two notable differences: lots of monsters (demons, mummies, vampires, etc.), and an extra button for shooting all the weapons you can pick up.

Other changes to the Canabalt formula include various locations instead of one level, health pickups, and more. Monster Dash also lets you collect awards and upload your best runs to the Openfeint leaderboards. Oh, and another big selling point: machine gun jetpack.
