If everything was cheaper the "game" side of it would finish for me earlier (even though I'd still play it) as I'm not overly concerned with high scores and more about making progress in games.
Exactly.

I've mentioned both of these things myself and agree totally. It's all about having your choice of which weapons drop. A 'melee only' mode is a great example of this. The weapon drops needs to be tweaked in general to have more of the heavy weapons appear as well.

I think Mountain Sheep may be offering counseling services with the next update

So I just started playing this game a couple of days ago, I am around level 25. What is the best character/weapon to buy and upgrade?

Sadly I have to agree with this. There is no sense of progression at all, I mean look at games like Jetpack Joyride that despite having the same old levels over and over again it's still fun to pick up and play every time (and satisfying to level up!). I think what Minigore lacks is they failed to give players a feeling of accomplishment.

Another thing it lacks is the upgrades don't seem to feel powerful at all. I don't feel like I'm more powerful when I upgrade 1 level to my shotgun. In essense the progression of upgrades is either too slow or the upgrades are too weak to allow players to feel powerful.

I have only unlocked a few characters but the bear levelled all the way is awesome, and I like Xmas Gore too. I upgraded the machine gun and shottie all the way to strengthen them as they're the weakest, but now I'm starting to upgrade the dual cannons, those things destroy everything in their path so more power and ammo with them will make me unstoppable! I love seeing the M60 drop haha.

But before I do that, gotta unlock hardcore mode, only 12k away

Hardcore mode is more like hyper mode. The game simply moves faster. I thought it would be harder but no.

The game needs to be tweaked and I'm sure Mountain Sheep realizes this, especially in the weapon drops, upgrades, etc. But personally, I am having fun picking this up every time I play it. I don't need leaderboards or high scores or a 'need to achieve' something. I just want solid mechanics, good weapons, nice graphics and sound and an addictive fun factor. Check, check, check and check.

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Okay, how much does it cost to unlock hardcore mode, and what level to do unlock it? Also do different characters have different attributes, or do they just look different?

I'd say stick with John or Jerry. Otherwise you'll find yourself starting with a measly weapon and a character with measly melee.

I find the level 10 shotgun is pretty good in general, and level 10 machine gun is super cheap to upgrade.


Also, didn't expect Minigore to get drowned out by the other games that quickly :/ Sale time it is then :P Good way to boost the app back.


Finally, does anyone have any idea as to what the "secret" mode is? Or is that just the hardcore mode?
