This game is awesome! Imangi has done it again! Definitely the most creative endless runner I've played in a while!

I picked it up while free and yes it's fun. Probably one of the more challenging running games I've played too.

Really nice game. Fast-paced, easy to learn, makes you want to play again. Nice in-game graphics, great art style in the menus (especially the death screens, objective lists etc. - the main menu is not as "great".)

I think a few challenge modes would be nice: shorter games where you try to beat your previous best without multiplier modifications. Just an example: trying to set a high score in 30 seconds where the scoring depends on many things that you can improve (etc.)

Personal request: I think the swamp texture could be bit more detailed without challenging the machine much. I think it takes away from the general graphics. Maybe some motion? some mist/smoke? or even just more varied texture? I like the garphics other than that. Also, I'm pretty sure you won't be doing this one but some sort of death animation would be better than the runner going invisible. Maybe he quickly turns into a skeleton? It is obvious that you chose not to spend some time there and I think you can hide that fact with a simple trick.

Good game, recommend to everybody
Good luck

You know, the one thing that I think is lacking in this game is the sound... I mean the sound effects are good and all, but the music is just mediocre.

Just my thoughts...

Great game though!

No, we developed our own 3D engine. It's the same engine we used in our other games (Max Adventure, Harbor Master, Little Red Sled).

I actually wrote about 3 different soundtracks for the game, and none of them worked. None of them fit in with the theme well enough, and since the game is so fast paced, hearing music over and over again in the background when your adrenaline is so high got annoying. It was driving me absolutely crazy. That's why we decided to go with the drumbeats in the end. It gives it a sense of pace and excitement, has that adventure/jungle vibe, but doesn't get annoying.

Thanks! And don't worry, I definitely appreciate the input. Somehow this was our hardest game to score so far.
