I'm loving this game as well (currently on 9th place on All Time boards! yaaay) but I agree: there's definitely something wrong with that black 'n white section design.

I beta-tested this game as well (I'm friends with the devoplers, btw!) and I always had trouble with the black and white section. I gave this feedback to them, but I since I'm not a real gamer, I thought I just wasn't skilled enough. If I don't "magically" float through the section (i.e. surf a planet, jump on an enemy prior, etc), I will usually die in this area, with no recourse to come back - without the aid of a pet, of course.

That said, it's another really bright and colourful release from Kumobius with very catchy music. I find myself randomly humming the main melody at times.

This is a reaaaally good runner game, but more often than not, my success in this game depends on luck rather than skill. It's still a blast to play, but may be because i was "watching" it more than i was playing it as well.

thanks for the fantastic feedback everyone! it’s so encouraging after putting so much work into the game. we'll definitely be addressing common issues that people are having (like that brutal black and white zone!..lol.)

we have a lot of stuff planned for updates, but we're also very keen to listen to your feedback and adds things you want to see! be it pets, costumes, modes or any other features.

for example, earlier prototypes of the game featured 2 additional modes. zen mode which was a speed run of a set distance, and leap mode, where gaps in the ground simply got wider with distance until there was practically no floor!

I give up on this. It might be a great game but it's too frustrating. I can't make it through those big gaps at ~2.500m and I'm really pissed because the game has so much potential.

Played more and more and I love it, although some sections are hard, the game overall is a blast, and controlling the ability is the key to success here.

Those two modes sounds excellent, specially the latter one. Please add it.

I've been debating whether it would be a good pet or perk:

A brief period of slow motion when coming out of the rewind. Perhaps the slowdown could be equivalent to the amount of time spent rewinding. To balance, it could use x2 the rewind meter, or maybe it could be a last-ditch thing where you have 1-2 seconds of slow-mo if you've used up the entire bar.

Just throwin it out there.

Also, seconding that pet costs are unbalanced. There should be a flat rate for all pets since you have to work to level up to unlock them, or the lesser pets should cost less (relative to their starting price) at higher levels. A two-thumb tap or button might reduce the simplicity of the controls, but I don't think most would mind.

Or another idea: some of the pets are 'active' vs. passive, i.e. you can trigger a one-time small speed boost at a trouble point of your choice instead of beginning with it.
