Tomena Sanner is a game by "one button wai wai action" and published by Konami for the iPhone and Nintendo's WiiWare service. In the game the player has to guide a breakdancing salesman past various obstacles by correctly timed button presses.
In Tomena Sanner the goal is to guide a break dancing businessman to the end of 10 levels in various modes. In order to do this the player will have to press the action button just before hitting an obstacle. If the player hits the action button with a small space remaining between the character and the object, the salesman will execute a move to counter the obstacle. However if the player presses the action button just next to the obstacle the businessman will perform another move that passes the obstacle faster and an additional 2 seconds is added to the overall timer. Whenever the player pulls off a "great" move by hitting the action button at the right time the businessman will also speed up to the right side of the screen. If the player bumps into an obstacle the player will lose speed and move gradually to the left of the screen risking losing the game if the salary man is too slow to keep up with the moving screen. If the player happens to press the action button when there is no obstacle the businessman will either jump if there are coins nearby or roll when there are no coins. It is possible to do a quadruple jump in the air to reach higher situated coins and pass obstacles without gaining points for them.
When the player manages to reach the end of the level before the timer runs out a break dancing minigame plays allowing the player to rake up some extra points by pressing the action button as indicated on screen.
