I wonder how other developers sort this kind of problems as it seems that this toxicity and victimization is present in a usual player base from any game at any platform (lookin' at you PC gamers).
Disturbing... But such a great read. IMO, they've dealt with things in a far more level headed way than 99% of people would have, and it's only made me want to support them more.

BTW, when did Towelfight get removed? I got the itch to play after reading and couldn't find it in the store... Luckily it's still in my purchase history... But anyone know if it's coming back?

Very likely! They're in the midst of working on a bunch of new content for the Android version. As the devs explained it, being able to skip a lot of the Appstore nonsense with each new build, it was much easier to test stuff. I believe once things are finalized with the Andriod version, they'll turn around and bring us the new update.

It's back!

While I appreciate the 2 new modes and the ability now to buy doubloons with the game's own currency, having all items sold by the end of level merchant guy ONLY in doubloons kind of sucks. At my current skill, even with the doubler, I can earn enough to buy 1 doubloon every 2 runs. So unless I just want to grind a lot to earn up some doubloons, I'll have to pretty much ignore the vendors. They used to sell stuff for as little as 600, but now the very cheapest item at 1 doubloon is the equivalent of 3300!

Yeaa i pretty much just ignore Grubby because I don't have enough dabloons for it, definitely liked the orb system more.

You can at least now buy doubloons with orbs, but they're very expensive. Who knows though, maybe once I buff up a few more times, orbs will drop more readily (I hear the 2 new modes, while insanely difficult, will pay much more per run compared to a run in normal to the same depth).

Well, apparently, there's a glitch that they haven't fixed. At normal Pete mode after 1000 metres and above, everytime you get into the game after closing it, Pete's death scene replays, and you will get the 50 doubloons.See those dbloons I got, everytime I come back into the game. it just give me the 50 dbloons. (I did not hack it) And i seriously find it annoying, because pete's death scene keeps replaying over and over again.

On another note, Petemare is difficult, but the last mode is wayyy too difficult.
