This is a fun platformer for sure.

LOVE this!

A few quibbles?

Can I access Gamecenter from within the game somewhere? Also, regarding Gc, a few of the achievements (thanks for putting in achievements!) kept re-popping after the initial completion.

The "buy shotgun" pop-up persisted even though I purchased the coin doubler instead (Yes, I'm thrifty. ), even after a death (oops ).

Finally, the map(?) in the top right is almost invisible on my iPhone. Is there some other way progress is tracked?

LOVE the story part, and I hope I see more of it unfolding throughout the game.

LOVE the music. Seriously, love it.

LOVE the protagonist. Hilarious, adorable, and bad @ss... simultaneously. Perfect.

tl;dr: I can think of a BUNCH of TA members who will likely enjoy this one...

Do you have to start from the beginning everytime you die?

Drummerboycoy -
I didn't add a gamecenter button in-game... Wish I had thought of that now! The "buy shotgun" thing is our very basic version of a tutorial :/ once you buy it it will go away! And the thing in the top left corner is a weapon swap button, so after you buy the shotgun (and the others) you can swap between the weapons by tapping it, theres a tutorial thing that pops up for that too, after you buy the shotgun - side note: buying the coin multipliers is one of the smartest ways to get all the weapons and upgrades the fastest, so good call there! Unfortunately there is no map :/ we are a small two man team and this is our first effort, so forgive us for some of the budget nature of the app. We are hoping to make a little money and make our next app much more polished. Progress is tracked by section, there are 4 main "sections" of levels to the game, each with a boss. After you beat the first boss, the first shortcut door in town will open up permanently and allow you to skip to the second section. Thanks so much for the feedback!

Snooptalian, you do start back from Cally's Backyard every time you die, but after you beat the first boss, you open up a shortcut door in the backyard that will warp you to the next section. We were trying to go with a spelunky/rogue legacy vibe there, where you are motivated to get a really good "run", or if not, at least earn enough money to buy the next weapon to make your next run better! Hope that it worked out ok, but we also know that it might be frustrating for some players. We really wanted it to reward you for skilled runs! Thanks for the feedback! It's so cool to think random people we don't know are playing and downloading the game right now
