I think I missed the voting on the web, but story mode is my fav. Boss fights makes everything so much better

I have a question though. How does the game move you across levels? When does one level end and the next level begin? Is it after running xx distance in a particular level? If so, what is the distance that needs to be run for each level? Or is it experience gained in every level?

In the story mode, levels are pre-made so the end of each level is at the end of a certain distance. Only the enemies are being randomized but not by much.

Endless mode is where everything gets randomized.

And in endless, you need to complete a certain amount of objectives to unlock the next endless level

is it intentional that the purchased wave attack (level 1) only works while running? EG, not when attacking when sliding or dashing?

Yeah that was intentional. A couple updates ago, we added upgrades for that in the sliding and dashing trees .

Oh, ok, cool. Thought it might have been like that :P

Anyway, can there be a back button in the level up screen? otherwise you exit to the main menu.

Sorry for double post :P

if you exit the app just after you died, with the DRWAPS sign, then resume, the pause menu would have appeared. Upon resumption, the music has been turned off.

Oh sorry I just realized that you had another question. I assume that you're speaking about the level-up button on the recap screen after a game. We'll check if that's possible to do.
