Cash or "Sidebucks" is the in app currency. You can either get Upgrades or Items.

Power-Up's will work a lot like temple run the high rank you upgrade ( LEVEL 5 MAX) the long that power up will last after you touch the power up in game. This is not featured yet the game play video.

- Temporary Invisibility, knock every one out of the way
- Super Cash Magnet, When you get this we lay down a continuous line of sidebucks (cash) for you to collect.
- Birds Eye view/ Pigeon Vision, this gives you a birds eye view of the street. The camera swings up high above the street TOP DOWN view. This makes it easier to dodge people.

Items you can buy "Pants & Suit" this is a consumible that gives you one extra hit. You can also collect this in game by hitting the joker tourst.

That is all the power up ideas we have now, any other ideas?

You probably meant Invincibility. Invisibility would make it so that none of the pedestrians could see you.

Right Invincibility. We could have your character knock every one out of the way like mario with a super star. Maybe you could rack up combos for each pedestrian hit while invincible.

Combos are a good idea. Maybe have combos for running over the fat ladies, then combos will have a sense of continuity. Also, I think each powerup should be an item of some sort, like invincibility could be a temporary suit, with the subtitle "people'll think twice before messing with you." I like it when games do powerups this way, so they don't feel so generic. (Just spitballing here.)

Btw, just PM'd an application for beta testing.
