I sort of agree. The pet system, IMO, is a bit broken. It costs a bit too much for the higher end pets after working so dang hard to unlock them. I think the dev needs to change the prices or eliminate the pricing on using pets. Level the playing field a bit but give a perk to the serious gamers.
But Hell Mode I'm pretty mixed on. I've managed to nearly get the same high score several times in that mode but my strategy is completely different than the main game. To survive you need to master the rewind feature but also pick your jumps very wisely and try not to go too fast where as in regular mode you need to go fast consistently (not that you need tips, just describing the difference). Hell Zone is all about precision jumping instead of trying to avoid pits and stuff. When I hit a groove where everything starts to flow... it feels pretty awesome. But it is called "Hell Zone" so it's gotta be tougher.
If my score was a one time fluke, I'd go with it being more luck than anything... but dialing in a strategy for it, I think y'all could probably eclipse my high score.
I played some Tiny Wings. Pretty cool game. The racing aspect in the second mode is pretty nice. The main game is a lot more relaxing than Time Surfer.. but that's not a knock against it or Time Surfer. Flight! I think is somewhat more fun to me than either game. I may need to check out jtpck. Something somewhat similar to that is Panic Springs. I had a lot of fun with that one.
