I must have gotten a promo code at some point. Thank you.
I think this is a pretty good simple game similar to that of timber man. I wish that instead that there was some sort of reward if you use the right button and skip over a space of land. Skipping over a space of land (not an empty gap) is a challenge and it would be great if you would maybe get extra points or time. Also the instructions part always shows up at the beginning which is a little annoying. I think saying that the left side is 1 space and the right side is 2 spaces its easier to understand because it's more specific. 3.25 stars.

Thanks for the feedback, coolpepper43!

You currently get bonus time for killing zombies and tapping quickly. 5 taps within 2 seconds will give you extra time. But I really like the idea of giving a bonus for using the right tap on land!

I currently have an update for The Hopping Dead Zero, which is the free version, awaiting approval. Once that's released I'll update both versions with your feedback. I could see how the tutorial could get old after a while.

Thanks again!
