Thanks a lot Rich! It's F2P (ducks for cover) - which was a tough choice, but I hope it's fair and balanced enough that you can play a lot without IAPs.

Edit: Can anyone advise how to get the App Icon to show up next to the thread? Thanks!

Whoa I played this in soft launch back when it was more like a Trials style game and liked it then.. but it's been completely transformed. I'm really enjoying the new style! Like an Earn to Die/Hill Climb vibe but with its own unique twists.

I would love a premium optional purchase maybe around 2-4 for this. I like it but the energy is running out way to quickly and takes 15 minutes to do another try.

I would not say it ruins the game for me but I like it and would love to play longer than a few minutes (around 15-20 atm) before waiting for 2:15 hours to do 9 runs again big bummer. I could even bare with less gems for more playtime. Shame really.

Also to all f2p haters: it got energy system for max 9 runs with 15 minute recharge for 1 more run + gems as iap and in the levels for new characters and upgrading your current ones and new vehicles. I feel like the gem per game rate is acceptable and there is a doubler for 4,99 if I am correct. Which is way too much for me personally, as there is another currency for super rare characters and new levels which accumulates very slowly. Also there is Facebook connection for more gems and one time energy refill which I did not use.

I think there are way too many f2p systems (double currency + energy). Would be instabuy if it went premium or added an option for no energy (called hearts in this game).

Sorry for the lengthy whine about f2p here, but this is one of the first games where I actually enjoy it so much I want to play more. Without it being for more grinding but just because the gameplay is enjoyable. Shame that the f2p keeps me back so much.

Edit: did an update on the next page.

I haven't had that issue yet but I play in spurts. I did run out once but there's a video option to get 5-6 lives I believe. Agree an IAP for lives would be nice
