Possible sleeper of the week!!! Those are some of the sexiest pixels I've seen in a while. Chiptunes are heavenly! And the gameplay looks frantic and fun. Unlockable characters are a big win! Is this randomly generated levels? Shutting up now and.... downloading now!

You have no idea how much you've brightened our day. To answer your question, yes the levels are randomly generated. Hope you enjoy the game!

I wasn't expecting this to be free. Are there ads in the game? If so, please consider an ad-disabling IAP.

Yes, there are ads that are displayed, but completely optional and never interrupt gameplay. If you watch an ad you will always get a new character. Once you have unlocked all characters, the ads will be disabled. All characters can be unlocked within the game.

Totally optional. Only to get new peeps. Two game modes, Adventure is like bite size levels and Endless (of course) is ah... endless. Great fun so far!

Yeah, I just unlocked my first character a while ago and the ads are exactly like in Crossy Road. Completely optional.

Beautiful game so far. Absolutely gorgeous.

HOOOOLY CRAP! This "is some of the bestestest!!" as Momo would say! Great game, think of a crossy-road-fantasy-rogue-like(lite) - awesome. The soundtrack is hot, like really. You gave me that warm fuzzy C64-feeling. And how you managed the ads, great. Too bad there is no donate-a-buck-button.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

The love you all have been giving us has been incredible. And really glad our old school references are registering.
