Suppose there's no harm in trying as it's free, but I deleted it already.

Upgrades ARE REALLY expensive. Like almost a million for new skins expensive.

Will keep playing though... want to dig further to get a proper feel. Gameplay seems ok so far... my favorite genre after all, cant help it...

Pretty much your freemium run of the mill endless runner. Its has all modern gizmos like missions, shop (this one is quite big), etc... with a freemium balancing: there seems to be a lot of coins but in the end they are worthless because prices are so expensive. Also, game is repetitive and your always doing the same thing with the same obstacle. This genre is way to crowded to stand out like this. There are much better offering that are also free and with a great coins pickup rate: Dead Ahead, Quadropus Rampage, ... deleted.

Is there a reasonably priced doubler that makes it better?
Sorry to ask so many questions on a free game,
I'm on 3G and have less than 10% of my data left.

I highly doubt it. Go with Dead Ahead instead (other suggestions are welcome)
