I suspect a complete lack of play testing. As crazy as that sounds, the developer mentioned upon release he was interested in hearing feedback about the balance since he had not properly played it. That shot off red flags for me.

well, i hope now we can be pretty sure that when the game will come back to the store it will be bug free and as awesome as it should be.

i hope for that for weeks since it was pulled out :/

Man I feel cheated, I was about to kill a boss to get another master key or armor etc.. So I died once used a rune to come back, then I died again used another 2 runes so I get it down to 15 HP and bam it kills me again(what I wasn't realizing is its been killing me with full Heath and armor?(are u frickin kidding me) so naturally I spend 2.99 on 10 runes thinking ok this will be worth it(not realizing its been auto killing me yet) it kills me again I pay 4 runes! Ok I finnaly get it down to like 1 -5 HP and it kills me agian. I decide not to pay frickin 6 runes just to die again.

I feel like I've been cheated out of money and want a refund. If not a refund then some kind of free something jeez.. I pay 2.99 for nothing?

The player has no agency and just has to HOPE they will survive or just not run into them... This is bad game design and needs to change. Nothing else has been more frustrating to me in this game, including the mass amounts of bugs and slightly over-the-top IAP design. Please address these issues, because nothing else has caused me to put the game down in disgust as much as these two things.

Possible solutions:
1. Flowers never have keys, so you are less likely to be FORCED to attack them.
2. Change the instant death to Massive damage/removing shields etc.
3. Make the Flower a Quick tapping mini-game to stop from getting swallowed (favourite)
4. Allow for some form of preparation BEFORE entering the dungeon to negate these abilities.
5. Remove them from the game completely. This is especially true for the Bomb one. That needs to be changed to massive damage or just removed. Just a bad event.

Keep up the good work, and hope this helps. I really am enjoying the game, but it can definitely use some tweaking.
Is that what kept killing me over and over again? I wasted money because of this nonsense.

Man I feel stupid, I wish I had some kind of warning. I've never felt so cheated out my money...

I think most people that spent money on this game feel cheated. Glad I got a refund on my golden ham purchase that's for sure.

Hey Fang, what reason did you give Apple for a refund? I am in the same boat, payed for Golden Ham and cannot restore and still not implemented.

Told them that the ham is supposed to allow you to play the game whenever you want for as long as you want and with the amount of game breaking bugs that is just not the case. Heard back from them the day I requested the refund and the money was back on my account a day or two later

Wow, that was quick, guess Apple may have been getting a lot of requests. Thanks Fangbone, got it, now just waiting...
