I like it. I purchased the coin doubler and the no ads.

It's a fun game! Do you think in the future you can add John too?

I unlocked the laser sword. It's pretty awesome. I love all of the weapon upgrades.

Cool downloading it now.

But I see John Mad Run also in the app store and it looks almost the same.

As a separate playable character or as a co-op?

As you can see the game has lots of references to past classics, both movies and games.
What color is yours favorite?

John was a kind of sneak peek.

When we understood that Joan will take much more time and budget to be done, we wanted to give people an option to have a taste of it earlier.

So we designed a couple of new levels, John and released it as a separate game, but actually it a Joan prequel and has only a few weapons available.

Joan is a kind of a full game, complete with full and more diverse set of weapons.

There is a small update is coming tonight for John as well, but changes are not noticeable.

We've fixed bugs and will turn off ads there, except icons of our own games
