I just noticed a small astethic issue, if you get 1000+ coins in a single stage the numbers overlap the gem icons a little bit. Not a big deal, just thought I'd let you know.

We actually started designing Mega Run as a regular endless runner, but we love classic platformers so much that it kind of morphed into a hybrid of the two

Duly noted! Thanks!

In world 4, level 12:
Where the red forest gem is, if you fall into the pit right underneath it (like hitting the two spike blocks that it is atop), reviving yourself with a save star will waste it.

Instead of skyrocketing back up, Redford will just stay at the bottom inch of the screen apparently using the save star, but he won't fire up. Once the duration of the save star leaves, Redford falls down again.

I experienced this glitch on my first playthrough.
Wasted two save stars. Should probably look into this, it may just have been me.

Yeah, It's incredible how many save stars I've been able to get by just watching videos. In about 1/2 hour I earned almost 4$ of in-game currency. It's amazing that devolopers are able to make so much money just from a user watching a 15 second ad!

Do power ups stack?

I remember getting a blue star and immediately getting a yellow star, followed by another blue then another yellow. All before the original blue star's timer ran off. I thought I would still have juice from the other stars but they didn't count apparently. As soon as the first blue star was done, I had no more power ups left.

Maybe a queue forming when you obtain a power up while currently having an active one?

Nope, I think the stars override the previous star, and powerups can only exist one at a time. Having stacking powerups would be ridiculous as you get the better upgrades too.

Yes, when you pick up a powerup it immideatly goes into effect. Also, once you reach tier 4 powerups some of them last 12+ seconds. If they stacked, you'd most likely have at least one powerup for the entire level!

Sometimes when you let the character walk down a step of platforms when playing the character decides to glitch. I wish I could show you what actually happens. Also, it happens when the character gets bigger too.

OMG This game is awesome on my iPad.
Not really liked Mega Jump but Mega Run is great.

It's a shame this isn't a classic platformer. That and the F2P kill it for me, sadly. And no Retina for the iPad...And jumping can be very unresponsive. Just my two cents.
