This makes me think that this is a ripoff from another game... can't think of the name though

The game is good, but the difficulty jump from story mission 4 to story mission 5 is ridiculous. Imma try farming side missions first, see if that helps. Farming of completed story missions is close to being totally useless as you get 30-50 coins each run, and better weapons start at 1000.

If the difficulty jumps like this this early in story mode, i can only imagine a huge paywall farther into the game.

Also kinda awkward having to swipe with two fingers to switch tracks. It works, but awkward.

It looks a little like that upcoming halfbrick game but nothing else I can think of.
