The new icon is fantastic!

Maybe my rhythm tap idea will make it into a weapon minigame in a sequel or something. It's definitely ambitious. Would love to relive some of those theme songs though!

Really look forward to the switchable charge, that's one of my main turnoffs gone right there.

Couple of other comments:

You have another sale. But it wasn't super-straightforward to find where to do it. I appreciate that you're not all in our face with the IAP, and I'm sure you prompt after finishing Episode 1, but you might consider making it slightly more obvious for us impulse types.

The exploration camera is at an awfully tight zoom. It feels really claustrophobic to me, especially with the pixel art (blocks good. huge blocks, not so good.) I can't get a sense of the geometry of the world I'm exploring at this level of zoom.

If there's a way to zoom out, I missed how to do it. If there's not, adding one might be nice.

Any chance of a sweep the leg attack in a future EP?

We added a prompt to the game that will incentivize an upfront Episode 2 purchase. We found that 90% of Episode 2 purchases happened after completing Episode 1 (we prompt for a purchase at that point) - it was definitely an issue of most people having no idea it was there. We also added an achievement for exploring the main menu - on top of that you'll earn a tiny bit of experience the first time you click on the stuff in the living room. We're hoping all of that will lead to an upswing in purchases.

Camera zoom would be an interesting thing to implement - we could definitely tinker around with the idea - it might cause an issue with how some of the levels were constructed, though.

Billy is going to gain that attack for a future battle - maybe we can have Marty counter with a Crane stance. Totally serious here.

Omg! Seriously? You really are bang on the right track to making this game better and better.
"knowing is half the battle" and you obviously know what your doing :-)

Hey Mightyrabbitjosh,

Would you consider putting an intro theme and song in a future update? I think it would fit the saturday morning cartoon era well. Great game!

The song that plays on the title screen is actually our theme song - we've had ongoing discussion with Harry Partridge (of Saturday Morning Watchmen fame) about getting an actual animated intro to go with the song; unfortunately, while Harry is interested he has always been super busy and we haven't been able to offer enough money to pull him away from other work.
