Good but has room for improvement

I love this game but I wish there was a guide to what power ups do what and how many points each item gives you. Also, the ending videos are great but sometimes I want to skip though it all and replay immediately which isn't very simple. Great game overall!

Somewhat broken game

This game is somewhat broken. Below are the pros and cons:

Great graphics
Fun animation
Great gameplay idea

Control mechanics are bad (there is something wrong here—he needs much more room to land on a platform than you would think. You can’t be close, you have to overshoot platforms by almost 50% for computer to register it and not have you fall through it. Because of this it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to cut it close on platforms or adequately time jumps). If this were fixed, the game would be playable. This flaw makes getting the “jump 30 times on the bottom platforms” achievement almost impossible, because they are so spaced apart that even when they are close enough to jump to, the characters quite can’t make the landing and fall to the side of it. Horrible)
Pay to play. ROSTLAUB take note. CONSUMERS HATE PAY TO PLAY. I know it makes money and devs love it for that reason, but just charge us up front for the game.

Overall, it’s ok. I want to like it and play it much more than I do, but it frustrates me to no end because of its coding flaws that I am deleting it from my iPad Air.

I almost thought this app was different

Okay so i downloaded the game and had alot of fun. Today the app store has an update for it i tap the look whats new button first line says added avertizments i did not update. Game is overall fun you get the hang of it after a while i was going to buy the death scenes and the update hindered me from spending money on this. Others who have already purchased the death scenes are saying after you update you need to buy the advertizments off the app as well im going to play the old version for a while aee how all this pans out. Overall great game wish i could download the backround music as a ringtone but with the update i have no idea how annoying this game will get.
