Dodge bullets, battle huge bosses and try not to get chopped In half by a buzz saw. Trade your loot for sick powers like egg bombs and rockets so you can really show those demons whos boss!

* Unlimited stages that are different every time you play.
* Simple controls: touch the left side of the screen to hop left, right side to hop right, swipe up to use the itemyou are holding.
* Smash demons in half!
* Buzz saws! Turbines! Tubes! Stalactites!
* Big ol' bosses!
* Loot!
* Shoot rockets out of your behind!
* New HARD MODE! Just in case you needed an extra challenge!
* Fowlst!
* Hooray!

Here's a couple of nice quotes from nice people:

"And you won't be able to stop smiling the whole time. It's raucous and chaotic in all the right ways, tight when it needs to be, and never fails to push you back in for one more go."
- Harry Slater, Pocket Gamer

"A Downwell-esque retro aesthetic tops off a really solid arcade package, and emphasises the game's frantic and unforgiving edge."
- Rob Funnell, Touch Arcade

Seeing a (to me) unknown Dev with ten unknown (and not at all appealing) games in my app store, i'd call this "a brave TOFTT"

All i can think of - Downwell and Flappy Bird have a child - Fowlst. My addictive one-more-try is given with a nice chiptune, the controls hold up greatly, some uprades to work for (quite a while), but with every game you'll get better and you'll earn more as well.

My only complaint are the boring and waisted seconds in some stages until the first enemy finally appears. I guess that could be easily adressed in an update.

Definitely worth my time and my two bucks.

Edit: as soon as you honed your skills a bit, you'll earn enough to upgrade your stuff quite quickly. Also, the prices don't raise as much as in most other games.
An option (pay some coins) to start directly from level 11/21/... would be helpful for advanced players. It's a bit tedious to start from scratch.

This is a perfect realization of some crazy concept. It shouldn't work as well as it does, but it really, really does. Haven't been able to put this down for an hour straight. I wish some sort of campaign mode could be added, or for a sequel, because this is just so much fun.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

This is a nice surprise this week. Really great. Metalcasket said it best, except I love the random stages for replayability.

From the freaking awesome intro down to the gameplay this is MY TYPE OF GAME! Might elaborate more after work but why are the leaderboards so bare??! Last time I checked - 29 people....

Super Fun game; and I haven't even battled a boss yet! 🤣
Premium and well worth the 2 bucks asking price 👍🏽

Edit: Rocket upgrade is a "homing rocket!" 🤘🏽

Wha?! They're the makers of Cat Puncher!
Not the greatest game with replay value, but the visuals were purr-fect!! 😂

But, yeah agree on the upgrades. The game picks up once you have these and live long enough to fight boses 👍🏽

Very fun game; I can see a lot of replay value on FOWLST
