Holy crap this looks awesome. And it seems like a very good variant to the usual runners.

Looks great, but no Game Center no buy. It's on my watch list and I hope they add gc in the next update.

Cant stay much since i have to go to the city for something important, but i have to say this is very enjoyable.

Havet checked how grindy it will get, but this is enjoyable. Good pace, nice clean graphics, pretty good hybrid soundtrack, and definitely good controls. The jump animation may need some getting used to, but they are very responsive, as he jumps right away after you swipe up, just that the animation to get to the max height of the jump isnt the norm.

Great runner to add in the iOS library.

I thought you had burnt yourself out on runners. Anyway, I'll never be as competitive in any runner as I was in Bloodroofs...:sigh:

I remember you owned in Blood Roofs you were killin it. I got some really good scores there, but i was never even close!

Now on this game, Ninja Slash is currently my goto runner, it is fantastic.

I always try to find the good and bad in any game i play so i have to say this... It's a hard grind. I've only ran exactly 6 runs, and i cant even get a first upgrade which needs 500 coins to unlock. I only have 442 coins right now.

Im sure i can get better and probably get 500 coins later on, but it is rare for me to unlock something in more then 2 runs.

Fortunately, the game is really fun.

On another good note, the $0.99 IAP already gives 10000 coins, which seems very generous, but i dont do consumable IAPs in any of my runners.

My final thoughts for this game are as follows...

From what i experienced in this game, it might go free sooner than it should, for 3 things. 1, people arent keen at paying a buck for an endless runner anymore... 2, the game is too grindy, but fortunately is good... And 3, it dint have any marketing as far as im concerned which is a bane of a lot of indie dev games.

I recommend picking this game up IF you have a buck to spare as the game is pretty good, and the new approach to endless running while killing things keeps it fresh.

Else, you can hold on to your buck and wait til this goes free, which is, sad to say, seemingly possible, unless a miracle happens and the devs make a lot of money out of it.
