Good game and a lot of fun.
Do you eventually start at a different level, or does the background always pretty much look like the video that was posted?

Aaaaand there's an update out already. More fix than content though. At least we know that this may get a bit more attention from Goroid.

By the way... this is the MOST generous game in terms of gaining in-game currency. Equip those +rubles gadgets... and they stack.

I mean in the endless runner way...

Right next to Infinite Warrior, TheEndApp and Last Knight.

How is this game compared to ShaqDown? That's my current endless runner addiction.

Shaqdown I did play a lot but ended up being deleted. The enemies were uninspiring, the gameplay isnt as engrossing, and the up-down lanes werent as good as i hoped they'd be.

Die Hard is a mixed bag of goods and bads too. For one, it doesnt feel like an endless runner, but more of a non-stop, forward-moving on-rails shooter. What i love about this game is the amount of upgradables and TONS of objectives, reminiscent of Goroid's fantastic TheEndApp.

Got the Android version of this, which was free. Wonder what the differences are, if any, in coin collection and upgrade prices.

Not sure what to make of this game. I see a lot of people saying that it is not that good yet they are "addicted" to it. It also has 5 stars in the App Store. So either people were expecting more from this game or there are a lot of people that really like mediocre games.

You sure you saw a lot? Coz i thought that was just me. Anyways, i think im done with the game. It just gets harder and harder, no bosses (i was hoping there was at the end of the 5th checkpoint but there's none), and nothing after it. If this was a runner, then i could take it as endless. But as a sort of on-rails shooter, it gets boring once you get past the 5th checkpoint. There's nothing there, except all enemies have 4 health each, and there's almost always 4 enemies on screen which just forces a game over. Then, you start again.
