Thanks for letting us know. Think I'll wait until tomorrow to see what the verdict will be on this game....

If I had to compare the game to anything, it'd probably be Punch Quest, in that it's a quirky endless with seemingly unobtrusive iap that's made by well respected devs. It is fun, though I'm still learning the mechanics- never played a surfer. Was nice seeing Axolotl again.

As Gabrien said, Kumobius is a developer who has met and surpassed all promises and expectations in regards to Bean's Quest.

And if that isn't enough, then wow does the gameplay every look insane!

Pets are basically one-time power-ups or boosts. Which unfortunately means that players will be encouraged to pay to improve their runs. Or grind for more "cake" once they run out.
