So..I really enjoy this so far, but wish for an option where you can swap the controls.. For me as a lefthander using mainly my right thumb in games feels a bit uncomfortable

I can see where you guys are coming from, obviously using a pet on every single run (talk about extreme ) would offer a clear advantage. But my opinion is stunted by the fact that I see the pets as pretty much useless, and the game is arguably more fun (and rewarding) when not using one. So I'll leave this argument for someone else, and get back to trying to beat Void's score.

Yeah, he's ~3,300 higher than me on Regular mode but on Hell I'm ~600 more than him. If you want another dude from here for high score comparisons send me a friend request on GC. I'm nightc1 on there as well.

The deal with the cakes is interesting since I don't purchase IAP and mostly play without using the pet system so I can unlock more stuff. A tip to those struggling to get cakes in game... Use the time rewind function to alter your path when you see cakes appear so you can collect them. I can collect 100 cakes in one game if I focus on that task.

I'm wondering if I'm alone in this, but this is one of the only games I would like a mission skipping function in I find it hard to get hurt by ten different objects in one run since if you make it far enough, getting hurt once is a death sentence. Plus, I would rather spend my runs trying to get high scores then get hurt, but that's just me either way, awesome job Kumo!

I sent the developer a request for this and he said it will be in the next update!

You are not alone! I too would love to be able to skip that particular mission. It's been in the queue for a day or two and I can't figure out a way to beat it, or even muster the patience to try anymore. There's nothing more frustrating than trying to fail 10 times and failing at it.

As for pets, I completely agree with Andy above. They seem like a great way to lose cake and not much else, so I'm not too worried about people buying their way to the top. In fact, I'm #35 on the leader boards without using any pets. I think the order of things that influence your score most would be Skill > Luck > Pets, with skill and luck close together and pets pretty far behind.

However, I would enjoy having a way to "buy" a pet permanently to use on every run. It seems like that would probably keep both camps happy.

I'm still stuck on that mission, but I'm fine not having a skip option because it makes the game challenging. I know I'll get it. I'm still progressing on other missions and am at rank 43.

Ha, that mission is also the one I just can't accomplish But I'm on it. One. More. Try.

I perform. Therefore I am. You should book me.

It took me several tries to complete that mission, but it isn't that bad! You just need to make a run with that as your primary goal, using the time shift powers to align yourself to hit enemies and meteors early on before speed is absolutely required to advance.

I'm now stuck on the mission that calls for you to acquire every gem in a constellation without using a magnet. I thought I actually got it at one point but it either bugged out or I must have missed just one gem in that constellation because it didn't pop and I was unable to rewind anymore.

I had that 'get hurt by 10 things' in my list for quite a while, but never attempted it until I read that some were having difficulty with it. Got it on my first try. I had one hit left to go, and the 'end' was right on my ass, but I just got it in time. Ended up around 4,000m.
