Same here, looks like it's the currency of the game. I hope there isn't a second currency called yolo.

Graphics is a bit rough and raw, like in the early days of 3d, and the controls arent as responsive.

The actual gameplay felt like One Epic Knight, but that's one of the best no-tilt runners on the appstore, so it would be totally unfair to compare this to that.

Swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide, left and right to switch lanes and turn corners (One Epic Knight-style). Jumps felt too high, and it's bad how it felt like, for a split second, the ceiling covers your view it seems. The camera jerks a little when you jump it's weird.

Slides are worse... There's a delay after you swipe down before the slide animation kicks in.

Changing lanes happens instantaneously, like you're teleporting to each lane, and the camera slowly follows there fore making the cam view sluggish.

Animation's a bit rough too, but they tried using ragdoll physics on death animations, again similar to OEK.

It's also weird, but this one not exactly bad, just weird for the genre, that the coin pickups called swag mostly lead you into an obstacle. In most games, the coins act as your guide rather than your traps.

I guess the worst part for me here is the collision detection from the obstacles. A few times i just died after ive passed through an obstacle already.

The IAP may be a little on the grindy side, and it is really weird that the remove-ads isnt bought with IAP, but instead is a part of the one-time boost choices. Im not sure why they dont want you to get rid of ads permenently.

Ignore the powerup costs in the screenshots. In the actual game it's x10 that amount, if i remember correctly.

Testing this game was irritatingly painful. It's safer to avoid it, but it's up to you to try it as it's free.

Do you play EVERY endless runner? There must have been, at one point or another, at least 25,000 of 'em! Probably more.
