I LOVE Ayopa! 😍😍😍
Happily trying this instantly.

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.

Same here! Instadownloading this too

I've also been waiting for an Unpossible-ish game but with more character, and this looks to be it.

Multiple upgradable characters, combat with dynamic enemies, control over rotating environment, mythological setting - there's a lot of character, for sure!

Nice! There's a lot more content and improvement going into the final global launch version that's launching on Nov 12, but this soft-launch version in Canada gives you a good indication of what the game's about!

Im loving it. Really enjoying it. The single currency, the visuals, the rate of earning gems as a freemium title, and most of all the unique mechanics.

It does have it's flaws though, and since it is in open beta/soft launch already i think i can just point them out here.

First off, the tilt sequences. It's pretty inaccurate i think. I dislike tilt in general, but i am confident in saying that the tilt here is really off. My suggestion is to either tweak the tilt controls, maybe add a bigger hitbox for gathering the gems, or remove the tilt and replace it with "tap left or right to fly in that direction" instead. The tilt can be unnecessary and could be replaced with something that provides a more accurate control.

Second, some enemies charging at you cant be seen until they are too close. This only happens when you are surrounded by obstacles, and when you are in an awkward curving path that obscures the view further ahead. Also, even if you have a clear line of sight ahead of you, you can see the enemies popping in too close. Maybe have their spawn area farther from your location.

Third, i think the game needs a doubler to give it a premium feel. Purchasing a doubler should also remove the ads. The ads are pretty rare so far though. Does purchasing any other IAP remove the ads as well?

Fourth. This im not sure coz i havent tried, but please have a limit to the number of revives. This will keep the leaderboards balanced, and still allow for more incentive for those willing to pay money for extra gems for reviving.

I will keep on playing this game as it does scratch the runner itch well, but im hoping some or all of the points i raised will be considered. Thanks!
