Thanks for going back and checking it out again. We didn't change any of the earning/pricing factors in updates, but I think it was mentioned earlier in the thread - the coins you earn in the game scale way faster than you'd normally expect for a game like this, so if you look at the store before you've started to get to grips with it, everything looks very expensive. This was unfortunate, probably something we would have tried to design around if we had anticipated it.

I remember reading about the grinding costs of this game. Did not realize that it was a game of Retro Dreamer. I past on, then.
Glad i saw this thread again and d/l the lite version. Great, five minutes later the full version. For my preferences, yet another little masterpiece of one of the best developers out there ! This is of course just my humble opinion.

Yesterday I played a few games and I earned around 500 coins per run, allowing me to buy several items on the store. Its not as grindy as I initially thought. The more I play this the more I like it. Its damn good. I finally seen the pink winged thingy with helmet and then it becomes so much fun... Specially the lack of revives... Such an amazing endless arena combat game.

Once thing I don't have clear is that the maximum amount of coins while executing a large combo and the amount of coins per enemy eliminated never grows further than 3, but on one spare and alone occasion I got 4?

I think there might be a combination of a power-up/shield and a slam combo that could give you 4 coins.

I prefer it on a phone sized device personally, but it plays well enough on the bigger stuff.
