I need this on my iPhone!
They loved the controls, but nobody mentioned Iron Man 3. I guess its warranted though, it's not as if this game wanted to be the IM3 game we love and hate. IM3 is where this control scheme's been used in a runner game first. It was really good in IM3, and Galactic Skater simplified it by removing the attack controls and keeping only the movement controls, which was a great decision by UpTap.

This is also one of the most generous in giving out ingame coins, but ive only received one ruby so far which is a letdown. They really need to give out rubies in a rare but consistent manner. I got the ruby from clicking yes when asked to review the game. Didnt review it yet though, as its still too early for me to do so, so i just took my ruby.

Another downside is that upgrade costs are high. Im consistently getting tons of coins, and upgrading something every 2 or 3 runs, but i imagine i might get to a point later where i might need to actually grind. Right now working towards completing missions is enough to be able to make that next upgrade.

Iap

Guys, this is Daniel from UpTap. Glad you're enjoying the game. We actually didn't even look at Iron Man, but we're the same team that did Snail Mail back in the day.

We're not seeing a lot of in app purchases in the game, so could you let me know if you purchased rubies or coins in the app store in the last 2 days (since the game's launch)?

Thanks!

This is actually very good and I'd normally buy a coin doubler to support the Developers but the secondary (primary?) currency of rubies has stopped me. It could be great though but that really does put me off. Would be kool to be Universal too but the Rubies mean I don't think I'll be sticking around too long.

Rubies

Hi, you'll be surprised at how quickly you will earn coins in the game. Next thing you know you'll be doing 100K coin runs, especially in later galaxies and as you level up. Rubies were introduced to balance out the coins' escalating, exponential economy.
