Wow.
Bought it and very impressed.
Beautiful graphics and backgrounds along with unique themes.

It's a mix between a platform and geometry dash.
The controls are different in which you can jump, dash, backflip to kind of save your self if your quick from a false move all while the game is progressing forward.

Only $1.99 so I was quick to jump to it.

I'm not great at these games so it's very challenging for me which I'm glad . I wouldn't like it as much if I could fly through

Hi there, the game has some collectibles, so you collect skulls which you can spend in the shop to get power-ups/new characters. However if you want to unlock those without collecting skulls you can buy skulls packs. That's the IAPs. Hope this helps!

Haha! Yes it's pretty challenging! Only a handful of players have completed it! I think only about 5 actually so far!
