I'm with DBC here. I've had the game since launch, paid full price, praised it and told people to stick with it and yet...here I am, bailing. It's not for any particular reason, but I just stopped caring enough to keep going.

Yeah Absoulutyly loved this game. I even had top score at one point. The game to me just lost its fun after a couple weeks. It just gets repetitive. Plus to compete with top charts you really need to have a 1hour+ run, and with no save option it kinda blows. If endless runners are your thing this is deff a must have.

@ Capricornman -

Yeah, I'm fairly certain I've barely scratched the surface, but I'm just not enjoying myself, soooo...

@ metalcasket -

It's funny you said you stopped caring. I think that pretty accurately describes what finally clicked for me today. I think I got to a point early on where I knew the game wasn't working, but hearing others talk about how awesome it gets if you just "hang in there" pushed me for a bit.

I played a few rounds today, felt my anxiety and frustration mounting, and finally said, "WTF am I doing? I play games to enjoy myself, not prove a point... I've got the wings, I've seen a boss, the game just doesn't work for me. If I'm still in a learning curve at this point..."

That, in a nutshell, was it for me.

I truly hope the game gets an update that fixes at least the camera, but if not, I'm not overly concerned at this point, especially considering the number of neglected games I have on my phone, not to mention my laptop.

I give up.

Well I don't think I need anymore frustration and anxiety in my life...no one does so...... I think I'm going to take up a different hobby!
I've always liked macram!

Sad to hear you guys give up. Guess it isn't everyone's cup of tea. For some reason this game did click for me. And have enjoyed it ever since. One of the best games I've played this year. Never really frustrated me but I can see where some might feel otherwise.

Anyway, just don't want the dev to feel discouraged.

I was frustrated at first too..but after reaching the first boss I was hooked. I beat the story mode yesterday and its pretty fun. For me, each run takes too long..so I don't know the longevity of this for me. I usually don't have much motivation after beating the game...to continue playing them..but this was quite fun for a few hours.

@awp69: I found out I just beat your best distance last night. But don't think I can catch up to others.

I was ready to give up on this because I kept dying so fast, but after investing all the coins I had after many many infuriatingly short runs in the permanent wings upgrade it totally upped my experience by a lot. I started having much longer runs and having a lot of fun, wouldnt mind if they tweaked the cam a bit though and also the rate at which you gain coins feels a tad slow but im guessing if I get better so would the income rate.

Its worth mentioning I play this game for little burst with loads of other games in the mix so maybe thats the reason it feels very fresh and engaging for me still.

Favorite games: LittleWing Crystal Caliburn, Legends of Yore, Hook Worlds, Phoenix HD, DoDonPachi Resurrection, Spectral Souls, Bastion, Avadon, Dariusburst SP, Aquaria, King of Dragon Pass & Starbase Orion

for some reason I keep playing this game. I couldn't kill the second boss (strange that it'll just go away after a while), but I don't think I got too much farther.

this game reminds me a lot of something capcom might make. it has neat and kind of interesting (but really, not that good) graphics, mutated monster things that are probably some genetic experiment gone wrong...and most of all, god awful control/design choices. the camera angles, the floaty jumping, the pickups that sometimes register, sometimes don't...the AI that makes no sense.

my advice would be to grind till you get wings. control issues get a lot more tolerable when you've got those. and if you're not having fun, just play something else.

what I'm hoping is that the guy is actually carrying the woman to the lab because they have been hunting her in order to use her special DNA to create the ultimate soldier.

ha, after I posted my message, I loaded up the game and had my best run yet (got to the train, but ended up smashing into a wall because I was just floating in the air after a jump). and yeah, the brainchild (that's not the name, I know, but it looks close) came back. I kept shooting it, but the 'eyes' weren't taking damage.

so about the store items...does the 2 lives at start powerup let you revive once, or twice? and is it always there in the next game like the wings upgrade? I just bought the second wing upgrade, which cleared out my bank.
