Hi, thanks for the code

I've been playing it for quite a bit now, I love the art style and the colours, and the tilt controls are spot on. I do like that you can choose to watch a video to revive, quite a nice feature on a freemium game to use when you've got really far and don't want it to end. Unfortunately, there isn't really enough to keep me playing this over other games. I do like runner games, but I like them to have a sense of progression too. Still, its an enjoyable game to pick up and play.

Like Her Story? Try Contradiction for iPad!

A few favourites: Contradiction. Desktop Dungeons. Til Morning's Light. Knights of Pen & Paper (1+2). Drylands. Paint it Back.

This is a behind the back endless runner, with a few distinguishing features. There are no set lanes to traverse between rather free movement left and right. Most of the time you will do this airborne, but you can, and indeed need to land occasionally albeit for a limited amount of time at anyone time.

As you fly you will collect other bugs that then fly with you until you drop them off at various points. The game seems to give out a good amount of coins but there are IAPs. I haven't played enough to unlock the extra characters but you can earn or buy them along with the usual boosts, and coins.

I am enjoying it but quickly get a little bored by 'endless' games, so I am unsure how long it will last on my ipad.

Thanks for your feedback guys, your comments are much valued. We will definitely analyze both your progression and "endless"-related suggestions after launch. I'll be sure to bear it in mind.
