So is this actually endless or is there a story that progresses?

One-way story that goes on til you reach the end boss (which i havent yet). Basically you save this damsel, and you run and jump on rooftops, bridges, train tracks, on-trains, etc to escape a city full of monsters. During your escape you encounter various bosses. There will also be instances you will experience train crashes and other great touches and details that add to the simple story.

Then there is an endless mode that you can unlock.

I think that you can't beat... it, because •••Spoiler:  you have to fight it later. I tried to defeat it, but I couldn't.

Really? I thought I played quite a lot and I didn't find any new bosses. I think I should try it again

Just one thing: there's no need to unlock the survival mode. After completing the "story" mode, that game is over and the survival mode starts, but with your current score from the story mode. You can't start it from the menu though, but it's better to buy the other objects instead of survival, except the warp. I hate it.
EDIT: wait a sec... I just found other way to play the survival mode!

Well, can someone tell me how to access survival mode the "other way"? I assume you mean from the start. I have survival mode unlocked, but haven't figured out how to play it as a mode, as opposed to just continuing to play after I finish story mode.

Well, not... exactly... as hinted in the trailer video, there will be changes to the story line depending on who or what you have been carrying before...

Did that for replay value...

I guess you really don't want to answer any questions regarding a touch-only control scheme I hope you don't mind if I keep trying (this is the fourth attempt), as I really, really like Blood Roofs, and would like to enjoy it fully.

So, here goes again:

Thomas, is there any hope of a touch-only control scheme? A simple two-way stick/slider/2 arrows on the left side, with jump and shoot placed together on the right, would do wonders for those of us who simply CANNOT enjoy (or control ) a game with tilt alone.

Blood Roofs is truly and honestly amazing. However (and this is in NO way criticism, as I am aware most players probably do not suffer from this smartphone age handicap ), I simply cannot work with tilt controls. I have tried, time and time again, in excellent games said to feature the most intuitive and natural of tilt implementations, but I cannot seem to enjoy a game unless I'm rubbing grease all over that little screen, and the same goes for Blood Roofs (though of all tilt games, this is the one I can enjoy the most in spite of the tilt controls).

I realize this option might be slightly time-consuming to implement, but I think I (and the others who feel like me, of which there might not be a rabid horde and dominant majority, but at least a few more, here and there, dispersed in small cells of tilt resistance across the globe) would rather have just an acceptable touch-only scheme, than to live life on the tilting plane.

The camera angle is anything but ideal.
Besides that.... WOW... but an amazingly beautiful endless runner.
