Oh. It's free again. It's a nice game but the coins you have to collect to unlock stuff is just way to high.

Actually the problem with this one is not with the amount of coins gained.

The dev did admit that with the last change, they unintentionally upped the difficulty because of the changes and additions they made. That's what made money making harder in this one.

Still, it's a very good runner with very good graphics, but the randomness (i believe there was a 25% chance you play hard mode everytime you start a game) does make the game a little ridiculous, in addition to the changes they did with how fireballs behave and how other backdoor mechanics have been tweaked.

Eh... not a bad endless runner, I guess. Definitely not bad for free... but it probably won't stay on my device too long.

Yeah the items are priced pretty high and it's tough later on. It is a strangely enjoyable game tho. I've spent quite a few hours playing it. I think the whole look of the game is really neat. I'd love to see a gothic action game in the same universe from these people.

Great runner that would still be on my 3GS if it weren't for space considerations. Definately worth picking up!

With this art style, if they make a game sidescrolling platformer in the vein of Castlevania, I will pay $10 for it if it plays as smooth as Mystery of the Japanese Werewolf.
