Ok so this game is pretty good! Graphics are excellently retro, and the set-up is going through colored energy gates (using the right side of the screen to swip, down or forward). There are 4 colors, starting with 1 then 2 then 3 and 4...and u have to switch between them. As each stage (identified as when a color is added and the speed resets) proceeds, the game speeds up, so by the time u have to switch between 4 potential colors, the game is exponentially more difficult. But I dig it, fun little action-runner-puzzler 👍🏻👍🏻


EDIT: So there is an upgrade system. U can purchase additional hearts (permanent upgrade) to extend runs, buy and upgrade a slow-down power that literally does just that for 10 seconds (and can come in REAL handy towards the end of a stage)...and one other I'm forgetting. There's also boost items but I'm not messing with that yet. There's also new outfits that are something to work towards as they're not cheap (nor are upgrades after the 1st purchase). I've yet to make it past the yellow (4th) stage....hopefully with another heart upgrade I can do it. Also, the IAPs are all consumables....maybe we can get the dev on here and request a currency doubler (gold and blue coins) PLEASE 😁 I would love to support this game but am not a fan of throw-away IAP
