I prefer levels in a game like this over endless.
I like both, but levels give me a tangible finish to shoot for.
High scores and distance are great, which is why I like endless, but levels keep me playing.

EDIT:
So are yesterday's 3 daily levels in PU gone each day when the new ones arrive?
I'd love the option to save them, to sort of create your own level based adventure with your favorites arranged how you see fit.
I'd definitely pay $1 to have this feature.

Interesting idea

It's a bit awkward, but if you change the date on your device you can replay them.

The way "qatqi" presents past daily levels is really cool. Might be something to check out if that's an idea you wanted to implement.

Thanks for the info!

I'd be curious to know approximatively how much time it takes for someone to beat the game, both if he played the Unlimited version before or didn't.

You mean to beat the 12 levels in this one?

Yes. The Unlimited version is not 'beatable' though it probably takes about 15-20 hours to complete all missions the first time.

For this, I'd expect 2 hours perhaps to get most gold trophies? Hopefully the difficulty progression feels all-right.

Just downloaded this although I already have platforms unlimited, and must say that this is a perfect companion to ease you into the mechanics of the lvls. It is like a training mate. I also like the rewards because I am not very good at these games and the shore lvls with the awards give me a sense of acomplisent I did not get from the unlimited version .. So yeah I keep them both on my device now . Good job !

Yeah its true that a hard endless game throws more punches in your face than flowers. It's a different experience than a progression-based game.

Any comment on the difficulty and difficulty progression? That would be helpful information to assemble the 100 levels.
