Im really enjoying this

I would prefer a jump button though. Swiping up sometime registers a diagonal which changes my direction which felt like it wasnt my fault when i died.

Im surprised this isnt getting more attention. It's like Slayin with the combat dropped and the platforming boosted up to max.

Really love how each of the rooms, even though repeated, scale harder with slight changes in the obstacles that require shifting strategies or timing each time. I've already unlocked half the roster, and everyone else should come after since the game only has one currency which feels like they become more common the more i unlock characters.

Free with ads, and $2 to remove the ads. There are IAPs for extra coins to unlock characters faster, but i dont recommend that coz the character unlocks give a secondary objective to pick up coins along the way.

The only flaw im going to point out (which may be significant) is the revive system. I havent used any of it yet so im not sure if there is a limit, where i hope it does. Best would be limit one use per run to keep the leaderboards balanced.

On my previous post i suggested adding a tap to jump option, but i got used to the swipes. It would still be a good option to have though.

This is basically the only reason I deleted the game, otherwise I would've called it an instant classic. While Nitrome's other recent "mini" game, Roller Polar was an exceptional pure high-score chaser with no IAPs for revives or anything, this awesome little game has unfortunately just become "another one of them endless games" because of the revive system. You can essentially buy your way on the leaderboard.

I used my few hard earned coins to find out how many revives there are possible. Started with 15, 30 and the 60 i couldn't afford anymore. Pay to win leaderboard unfortunately, only.

Without this big miss, this game is as good, challenging and enjoyable as EP and MC already pointed out. I dedinitely won't delete it that fast, because i have some (little) hope for a pure leaderboard to come. (In addition to p2w)

Isnt there a nitrome rep posting here? Hopefully they read our posts regarding revives and limit them to one or 2 uses max for a more balanced leaderboard. Or, a separate leaderboard for no-revive runs.
