Instant purchase for me later

Hoping this one wont be as boring as the last one. The first one had similar scenery throughout and the same jump shoot jump shoot without much else. It had great graphics and gameplay. Just bored me.

It was quite samey but i must admit for just a buck i had a lot of gameplay from it and it reminded me of lots of older platforming type games. Cant go wrong for a dollar

Looks like a cross between League of Evil and Contra without anfetamines.

Playing a lot: Fifa 13, Cosmic Mechanic, Table Top Raging and Random Heroes 2.
Indication: Random Heroes 2

Support indie developers' hard work.

This looks like the exact same game as 1. What new features are there, the menus, maps, characters all look the same as 1 .

These guys pump out games pretty fast so I understand reusing assets but I'm struggling to see what's good about this one. The first one bored me after a few levels so I hope this changes it up a bit.

Gun direction changes, new characters, different movement options, more weapons?

Every model of reality has margins where it begins to run out of explanatory steam, where we can see its problems and limitations

Huge improvement.Still has some flaws:first weapon takes 7-8 hits to kill basic enemy,you get lots of coins but the most expensive costume for example costs 17k,I've been playing for 2 hours and have 6k,and I don't like Pay to Win achievement(get it when you make in app purchase).But good things more enemies,heroes have abblities,90 levels.
Passed 20 levels,recommend it,4.5/5,huge platformer fan tho

This game did not need a sequel. IMHO, of course. Also they really need to take on a new art style.
