This game was free, with ads, but then changed to paid. Everyone that got the game while it was free was updated for free, and had the ads removed. There are no ads in it if you buy the game now.

yeah, i searched for it... and that thread is in the price drops section... not in the main games section... =o)

Since the game is not price-dropped, it will be free forever... it deserves a main thread... and really, shouldn't have been posted in the price drops section...

Pretty decent game. Looks like it gets more complicated as you go.

Not sure if the unlockable character has some sort of special move, as some coins and chests seem impossible to get without being able to jump or dash.

yes, there are some coins that are harder to get... but it's possible once you upgrade the hammer, and shoes... then you can break more than one platform, and run fast enough to grab the coins (you can go in the right side of the screen, and come out the left)

Very nice game, especially for free... Found a glitch though, at least on my iPhone. I was upgrading running boots, then ran out of coins, but tapped the icon again anyway, and it upgraded again even though I had zero coins. Tapped on the other 2 items and they also upgraded with no coins needed. So basically I maxed out everything without any coins. Anyone else see this?

This game was on my watch list and it came out free. Really a nice surprise cause this is going to be a costly week! It reminds me a bit of Dungeon Core, which is a good thing, what with the upgradable equipment. Nice game. Everyone should grab it!

Yep, I noted this earlier today in the other thread; the developer confirmed that it is indeed a bug that will be fixed.

Love Meganoid and this one is a nice game too.
I think we don't need to grab all the coins since getting some has already fulfill the counter. Don't understand the calculation though.
