So I picked this up, because... I could.

It's a surprisingly fun game, quite well done, and the jumping mechanic is pretty interesting.

Developers - don't know if you're listening, but please get rid of the double-swipe to accelerate/decelerate. Change it to how jump works - so that one swipe in the same direction will accelerate/ decelerate. I've been messing up heaps thanks to it...

thanks Echoseven,

I am the Dev, and I can understand your problem with the double-swipe. I had the controlls, with acceleration with 1 swipe, and all my testers ended up going fast more often then they wanted to. But I will put this on my TasksForFuture list to add your suggestion as an option in the settings.

I've played some more and I quite like it, a very nice take on the snake game. I've been playing this over Infinity Blade, believe it or not...


About the acceleration - it's not about speeding up as much as slowing down, when I'm going fast, swiping twice takes too long for precision movements. I've taken to slowing down well before I need to and just waiting, or even not speeding up in the first place.

The challenge mode is brilliant! (I've been playing endless to start off with)
