Record Run, the first mobile game from Harmonix, is now available on iOS, the studio announced today.

It will be released on Android soon through Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.

Announced during Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos' keynote address at PAX East 2014 last month, Record Run is a free-to-play runner in which the gameplay is determined by the user's music collection. Because of that, the game requires the player to have music stored locally on their iOS device in order to play; it doesn't work with streaming services. According to Record Run's App Store description, it supports "most audio formats," except the iTunes Music Store's old DRM-locked M4P files.

In Record Run, players control a character who's jogging down a sidewalk, and use various touchscreen gestures to avoid obstacles while collecting vinyl records — to the beat of a song, of course. Picking up the LPs transforms the game's world into a musical wonderland, and the records can be used to unlock upgrades.

Check out Record Run, which Harmonix developed in conjunction with SuperVillain Studios, in the App Store.
