Leak of animation? not sure i follow. Are you referring to the little red line that comes from the main character? Is that supposed to be the 'navigation' line or something?

Very interested in this game; would love to hear feedback.

The graphics appeal to me, but the gameplay looks a little suspect from that vid. I mean, there's not much going on?!

I'll definitely look out some for respected opinions before hitting that big, bad buy button...

I assumed it was a typo and he meant "lack of animation", the main character doesn't seem to move at all while jumping, like he is just some static icon.

Game Impressions

Teaser Trailer:


HD Gameplay Trailer (iPad 2):

Note:

Frist 15. Minutes of Gameplay.

Special Note:

As you can see the Game is a pretty nice Jumping Runner that has some nice Art and also a few nice Features other Runner Games doesn`t have.

While some might say that it seem that the Game start slow i can assure you that it keeps getting faster as you progress in the Worlds.

As i already have said before i really like the Artstyle and really do hope that the Develpoper adds a few more Animation and also a sweet little Story since those Paintings on the Homepage of the Game are great and i wana see much, much more of them in the Game!

Even i first thought that the Game wouldn`t be worth my Money i am glad that i did take the risk and bought it.

If the Developer keeps fixing those few missing Things this Game could become in the upcoming Months a nice sleeper.

Thanks for clearing it out to the others. I really shouldn't us the iPhone for posting stuff since the Auto Correct Function is making a hillirous joke out of it.

Amit - Ceo - FatCow Games

Hello our lovely customers, this is Amit using this account - CEO of FatCow Games.

We appreciate your feedback and it is already being worked on slowly. We cant promise full animation on the next patch but at least some minor adjustments before we replace it with a full scale animation. So, noted and accepted onto "ToDoList"

Other feedback elsewhere has made our "ToDoList"

1. Better animation, will probably improve our time (Budget reasons)
2. Faster speed progression (Shouldnt be a problem)
3. More monsters earlier (We decided to add some new patterns too)
4. We are also adding a stress factor to the game, the darkness hands will appear when you get too close to the left screen before dying.

The list is longer but smaller and more incremental patches is easier for our part time development + quicker to fix bugs.

Thank you for your feedback, please buy our game and stay in touch with us on twitter and facebook for other news, games, entertainment and VIP services.
