Promising game, some obvious faults
I think I may coddle this game a bit too much in regards to my criticism for it since I’m in favor of it’s retro style, but I’ll do my best. Out of everything I like about it, I’ve got a soft spot for the “arcade mini game” esque style its going for. It’s exceedingly nostalgic, especially with the way the 8-bit sound effects coalesce with the visuals. It really works with the overall premise for the game as well. I don’t think it really happens as soon as you play the first few levels (especially due to the difficulty of these first levels being fairly low in comparison to the later ones), but as time goes on, the mechanics of the game get more and more tedious. I noticed how the game manages to maintain the player’s interest to an extent by adding new threats and obstacles every few certain levels, which to me, is fine, however, the game has this habit at times of relying too much on one threat in a repetitive format. It especially gets tiring after the player has already likely mastered the same setup of obstacles. The levels manage to constantly change in both color and layout nicely, and the obstacles can still manage to remain cohesive with the setup, which can keep the experience fresh. With the controls, however, the game will somehow manage to misinterpret the player’s intended direction and your character can go completely the wrong way when you swipe sometimes. At times, the game doesn’t register your swipe. The energy system is outright infuriating and ridiculous. I think if you want to improve it’s absurdity, it’d be best to up the meter for the amount of energy the player can have. Overall, the game looks very promising and it’s hard not to fall for its appearance; it definitely deserves more levels, and more mechanics before it gets too repetitive. It’s a great experience for when you’re bored.

Love it.. but
Listen I love this game and it’s mechanics. It is just difficult enough to get mad at and come back later to finish a level. But, I was playing arcade, paused to respond to a message and came back pressed play and was hit with an ad. While the ad is playing I feel my phone vibrate telling me I died. The ad ends and I’m dead.. you guys need to fix how frequently you display adds or when the ads are displayed.

It is a SUPER fun game and somthing I would never have thought of, so clever! Thing is, it was downloaded in my iPad but had not played it for about one month. I was on level 19, but today, and it was showing me how to move about the screen so I was confused. When I checked the levels it said level one. 😞 oh well.. at least there is your other version, “In colour”.
