Really fun game with great retro graphics and lots of funny options to buy once you've earned enough coins.

Edit: just realized you can unlock different characters once you reach certain heights.

Totally loving this game. It's challenging in a very good way and there's some really excellent dangling-from-a-string-of-balloons physics at work here. My favorite game of the week.

Very nice! No ads, no IAPs, adorable pixel graphics and good (although repetitive) music.

Still loving this game and excited to break 500 ft and discover there's a whole new sky up here!

One suggestion: (unless they're up here and I haven't discovered them yet) Add powerups we can grab along with coins - things like something that would freeze the wheels for a moment, rocket boosters, a protective circle of crows, etc.

Such a fun game!

Hey JoshW!

Thanks for checking out our game and taking the time to write up some awesome, innovative suggestions. We've got a few ideas of our own, but are currently busy trying to get the word out and gage people's interest before making the time commitment to add more features. We'd love to add some more content in the near future though depending on how things go. Thanks again for playing, really means a lot!
