For some reason, I thought this was going to be free to play, so seeing the $0.99 price is a pleasant surprise

I will say it has a lot of IAP mechanics, particularly with dual currencies and a revive system. It also kind of pushes that second less plentiful currency to play a spin wheel and also puts it's additional $1.99 "starter pack" in prominent display (there's plenty of other currency IAPs available as well). You can't just restart a run. You have to go back to the main screen and are forced to push through screens for these things.

If it wasn't for that, I'd say overall it's a pretty good runner that gets challenging. Coins are fairly generous but I haven't seem the cost if max upgrades.

I got a code for it so I obviously have no right to be too judgmental, but I could certainly see this going the freemium route at some point.

Downloaded and will try soon and leave impressions, I purchased it on my AppStore and I do believe I remember something from the past where the other game like this was actually just stolen/copied from this? I could but wrong but I'm sure someone will know.

I feel the same about toad rider as you do, I also have to agree with awp, I could be wrong but it seems like the same game as robot rush but without the ads.

@awp I also got a code, I'm thankful for it but if I'd paid I have to admit I'd be disappointed as it does feel very freemium. I'm greatful for code I get on here but when leaving feedback etc I treat it as if I'd paid for it.
