Hi Everyone,
Thanks for trying out the game! We have read all the reviews and now we know how to improve the game

Background: We want to score 6/5 so we'll improve it. May take some time to develop so probably won't be in next update.

"defend all the way expoit"
We were aware of this issue while developing, but we tried to fix it with the score system. (The stamina bar idea is great! Why I didn't think of that )
like Exact-Psience points out, the score is much higher when you kill.
every 100m traveled increases 1 mulitiplier
The score formula is distance + multiplier x head(each type of enemies gives different number of heads)

Also, there is a flag system: every 20 heads collected, a random flag appears
Flags in Endless Run mode
type of flags
1. +20 multipliers
2. dash forward 750m
3. +20 heads
4. +2 life

Although there are attack and defend buttons, it also works if you press anywhere on the left/right screen.

Next minor update:
I'll improve on the Instructions and maybe add one or two more training camp for the flag system.

The game is live now in most countries.
Thanks again everyone for your feebacks!

Be Xena, Play the Right Game!

^Great info... if the formula has "times Heads collected", and killing more means more flags, then I dont think defend exploit isnt much of an exploit scoring wise.

By the way, the sequence that ALWAYS kills me (or deals most damage if i survive it), is the 2 Swordsman followed by Daggers a bit behind them. Before I even see daggers, I press attack (for the swordsmen), then a flurry of daggers always take 4 block of health off me.

It is also like stick page games but it is is a little bit brutal but exciting for sure teens and adults will enjoy playing this type of game.

Tried the lite version before and it kept me entertained for some time though does start to get heavy on the repetitive side for me and it got boring and I lost interest...

Im not sure what you expect from a single-player endless game.

But for me who has played tons of endless runners, the mix of the sequences in Blood Run and the moves needed to take on different enemy types make for some very varied maneuvers which no more than a handful of titles have achieved.
