App description: Polara is a new take on the free-runner platformer that incorporates traditional challenging gameplay with color-switching strategy. Utilize color coded speed ramps, launching pads, gravity waves, hex bombs, and energy platforms to survive as you escape the clutches of an evil security system hell bent on destroying all those that oppose. Immerse yourself in the world of Agent Lara, a defense system special agent, that finds herself between a massive world power and the sympathies of a rebel cause. Help her down the path of death defying obstacles to find the truth behind her past, present and future.

If you want an innovative game that gets your heart pumping and brings a smile to your face then look no further. Many who've tried have discovered the brilliance behind the level design in this game. We challenge you to try Polara and not get pulled into the free flowing but always changing gameplay. Complexity in simplicity.

SWEET REVIEW! Thanks so much!

Just wanted to clarify a few things.

There isn't any IAP. We didn't want to put any in this at all. We wanted it to be a full complemented side scrolling platform runner.

The 'ads' in the loading screen are basically so we can have cross-promotion so it doesn't stick in your face when you're playing, but rather as a side note when the game is loading. We really are trying to make it enjoyable for the user rather than detrimental. So you'll see our content linking to us and possibly other games that take advantage of the cross-promo with us!

The introductory price is .99 cents and will be limited so make sure you tell your friends!

So glad you're enjoying it man!
Cheers

The last few weeks have been so refreshing. A whole slew of games have been released with no IAPs at all and this week seems no different.

As far as the ads are concerned, yeah...not bothered at all by them. There isn't any "Tap to Continue" thing after loading is complete, so I don't see how anyone could accidentally trigger an ad. Good stuff.

Absolutely...and honestly we really just want to make games that are GAMES and not vehicles to just gouge money. We aren't completely comfortable with IAPs in the sense that they are being used by mobile devs.

I can't stress this is why it's so important to support people that want to give you worth rather than deflated hope. Please make sure to tell your friends and whomever else you think might enjoy a game like this. Just trying to be transparent, but the best way to ensure quality is to support your favorite products

We're trying to build a business out of this and we really just want to have a proper healthy biz model that benefits everyone. We honestly hope you enjoy the title. It took us a little under a year to put together and it's been a long and bumpy road...you would not believe the stress, loss and passion that has oozed out of this project.

Now that it's about to be released, and people are excited, it is blowing our minds

Ya the begining of this game alone kicks ass. Does anybody know if the color you hit the checkpoint with does anything? eg. Hit all checkpoints with blue.
