Actually; replace the word 'Free' with 'Frustrating.'
I actually love this game. But, just like any other game, it takes a bit to get used to the controls, and if it's a frremium type of game, it can get quite expensive and frustrating.
I did not see anywhere, where you could actually purchase the coins or lives, with real money. I don't know if that's coming later?
You earn a few, or less then few, coins as you are playing, and can use those to purchase extra lives, or, watch a video ad for another life.
What's frustrating is, you start from the beginning again, if the lives run out & you can't get anymore.
So this is where I quit cause I really don't want to play the same levels over and over again. Although, there are a few that ramdomly cycle so they are not always completely the same, but close.

So, Dev... are you going to add an iap that will allow to buy unlimited lives? I'd be willing to do that. I do like the game and it's uniqueness. What I am not willing to do, is to keep purchasing consumable iap's over and over.

Edit:
I looked at your website.. Says you are a one man band here.
Very impressive!!!

It feels a little bit like the game isn't finished yet.

I'm in the club that believes, if I purchase a game, I shouldn't have to keep purchasing it over and over again, or be penalized with ads because I decided to support the dev.

What is the plan? I look forward to knowing this, because it really is a fantastic and creative game.

Also, little confused on the goal. Is it a high score chaser? Or, is it endless or is there an end?
thanks!!

hehe Thanks Lavender.
tbh I'm Not sure how I can make controls better.

Currently there is no IAP so you cant buy coins, I might actually add IAP I just though people didn't like IAP because game might feel like pay to win :/ solution to this might be adding a bit more coins to collect in game and create variety of Level layouts in game so it might add a bit more randomization ?

I am "one man band", just trying to learn a bit more programming.

Plan in future updates:
- New update should be in next few days which will add everyplay, new UI, and hopefully will make game looking more "finished"
- Add IAP maybe ?
- Campaign levels (hand made levels)
- Achievements ?
- More randomized endless mode ?
- More platforms ?
- Power ups ?
- Different theme (sci -fi) ?

If you've got any suggestion that you think might help BouncyPix or any ideas what would you like to see in next updates you could post it Here (http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=250676) ? Thanks !

Controls are fine. Just take getting used to. Just like in other games.
So I wouldn't change thenm in any way.
Everything else... I'll post in your other thread.
Thanks!

Looks very cool. Gonna try it now. The future updates with campaign levels, achievements, etc., make this look even more interesting...

I thought the controls were a bit unresponsive... I died about 5 times because the 'buttons' didn't register a press then deleted it... =o/
