Thank you for the code.

It is a nice simplistic seeming game. Good for those looking for a minimalistic high score chaser and time waster.
Looks unique for those that are bored with the familiar genres used here.

Constructive criticism:
*In the beginning, the directions state to 'swipe'. It is natural to assume that it means right to left or left to right instead of swiping up. I suggest adding the word 'up' in the directions.

* The swiping for me is uncomfortable. There's nothing wrong with it. It works fine. I am sure many players will disagree with me as it may just be a matter of personal preference. My fingers are getting tired from swiping up, up, up on the screen and I keep wanting to tap because it feels more natural to me. I would to see this as an alternative choice in the settings. Maybe a tap that becomes a higher jump or movement when you make the tap longer. Instead of tap, tap, tap like a flappy game.

* I like the look of the game. But.. I feel like there's a little something missing. I would love to see things that can be earned. They could be earned by collecting coins on random shelves or hanging in the air or by reaching certain scores...... Etc.... Some examples: A change of color for the player piece. If you really want extra work or fancy...A little 'dressing' like spikes or polka dots, teeth (he he), a happy face... There's so many ideas, I'm sure.
You could full with the background too. Or even the spikes on the bottom. The spikes could turn into knives, weeds, flowers, rocks, anything....
Psychologically, players want to earn something or save something. Without a reasons to keep coming back, the game could become monotonous. Then, you'll lose those players that watch the ads or pay to remove them.

* Speaking of ads.... It's awesome that there is an IAP to remove them.
But.. The ads are atrocious. There's a lot. I understand it. Having more ads may increase the desire of the player to pay for the IAP - ad removal or to increase your revenue. (Yes, I know that it isn't much.)
But here's the problem for me. There are so many that it discourages me from playing the game (or testing it) long enough to see if I want to purchase the IAP/ad removal for myself and others that I would gift it too. (Friends, family, foster kids).
I would suggest turning them down a little bit. NOT remove them. (Otherwise no one would ever purchase the IAP/ad removal.) Especially because your game is the type that someone lose a lot until they get better, which is a good thing except for the timing of the forced video ads.

Some of this is personal preference.

Good luck to you!!

Thank you for your constructive criticism and trying out the game! They are all very helpful points that upon reflection I will definitely address in some way. My only thoughts about the premium levels/different coloured hoops/coins is that I'd add them in an update if the game had enough downloads. I've released games before with levels and characters that take hours to design and then got a small number of downloads. Thanks for your help though!
