Well - took a chance - spent my last dollar - and it's TILT ONLY controls. No other option...

I dunno if I'll even keep playing enough to come up with impressions...


Damn I hate tilt controls...


**there's also 11 5 star reviews (and nothing else) in the US Appstore - so I"m assuming that they've 'bought' reviews as well...

Grrr....

K... Managed to get through the first 6 stages...

The grinding is INSANE. I've got about 95-98% of the coins in each stage, and have 300 now. The first upgrades start at 10,000 coins and go up by 10,000 for each additional level.

By the time I complete all 18 levels, I should hve about 900 coins...

Yeah... Even with the coin doubler, you're basically FORCED to buy the 20k $1.99 IAP to get anywhere with the upgrades...

I just can't get on board with this game...

Deleted, and pretty upset about it.

Thanks for letting us know. Tilt only and some dubious reviews on the App Store means ill avoid this one

Thanks from this side, too.
I remember now that i miss-clicked this banner so many times, and now,
since it's finally out, i forgot about it and the Devs didn't even make a
thread or something to promote it after release.

For once i say it officialy: i wait for it to be free.

Must admit from the video I like the look if it. Like the way you change from walking to a spaceship

Just wish it wasn't tilt only. Seems a poor decision not to have alt controls

K... so I started the game up again, and somehow, my coins dropped down to 56. I had 300+ last time I played, and I swear before that, I had 400 something.

Now I'm on stage 8 with 56 freak'n coins... and upgrades starting at 10k...

Damn this game is just... grrrrrrr... And I hate that the developers advertise here on TA but aren't active in the forums...

**

Ha - just beat stage 9, and got 126 coins. Added on to my total, and I've got... =oO
135...

I feel bad for anyone who got this and actually bought coins only to have them disappear on them.

Yup... deleted, and keeping an eye out for this developer so I can know to STAY THE HELL AWAY.
