Nice concept but the game is so dark and the enemies so small, I can barely see what's going on on my iPhone 5S even with brightness cranked up.

Deleted. Will try on iPad later.

Yeah, it definitely needs some polish and reworking in certain areas, plus I can imagine the screen size is definitely an issue on the smaller displays. There's a few nice mechanics though, especially hitting inclines, so I'm hoping the dev will show up and the game will reach it's potential.

Hi Kioshi and PeteOzzy
Im Steve from Paranormal Games one of the devs and founder.
Thanks for checking out the game! Id be happy to make changes to the game as per your feedback, and i have a few changes planned for what you guys have mentioned above. I wanted the game to be very dark and heavily silhouetted as i was going for a retro inspired game with heavy comic and cartoon influence. If you guys could elaborate further on how you think the game could be improved would be much appreciated.
thanks in advance.

Some enemies are invisible at certain points in the level. Black background (a little jut up in the building that's black to be exact) + black enemy = invisible enemy.
A little more of a red outline or red detail would go a long way.
Does IAP remove Ads?
Acquisition of in game money is very slow. Even a doubler would make the game a very heavy grind. I tend to not play games unless there is an end in sight or the actual game does something very new or very well.
Not saying the game is bad. I enjoyed what I played before I deleted it as I felt the ads were far to obtrusive and was unsure about how to disable them. Plus the issue of needing a currency quadruple-r to bring things up to a reasonable pace.
I just realized I didn't say too much that was good about the game.
Well, if you're a fan of endless runners, it's worth a try. There's some novelty to it and the art design is great. I can't remember the name of the most recent endless runner I bought... By bulkypix or chillingo, I think (I deleted it pretty quickly), this is actually better and has more potential. And unlike the other one where we had to donate a dollar to find out the game was an abortion, this one's free to try. Also, not an abortion. Just needs a little polishing.

Thanks Nobunaga for your honest feedback, its what we have been looking for since releasing on google play. And yes any purchase in the game will remove ads. Thanks we will try to improve on the game.

And to quickly answer the other part which i overlooked, the gold is means to use boosters and also revives. You already earn boosters for free whilst in play so we dont want them to be over used nor do we want people reviving constantly, theres a sacrifice to be made for boosters and revives and that is gold. you accumulate that by playing. To level up the gargoyle, become stronger and unlock abilities you collect souls.

I'm downloading it now. This is the first time I've heard of this game. It looks like fun. How can you say no to gargoyles lol

Thank you for the screenshots. See you just gained another download lol. Be back after I play the game for a bit.

What else will be in the update?

Billy

Edit- ok right off the bat I want to uninstall the game. Normally I do. I installed and tapped the icon. The game starts up. I'm immediately hit with a friggin full screen ad. Before I get to the main menu screen? Why? That's a very very bad first impression. You don't throw an ad in someone's face before they even get to the main screen before they've even played the first time. Please fix this in your update.
