They fixed it!

My previous concerns were fixed literally within minutes after I posted an edit of my review with reports on crashes and slowdowns. The developers are truly dedicated to making sure this game runs well on the devices stated, and I have nothing but the utmost respect to them for listening and following through with suggestions and bug reports. 5 stars.

I’ve been waiting for a beatem up that’s a very quick easy pickup and play, and this is it! In addition to unlocking many characters and skills, I like that it is very play style friendly in terms of creating your own combos. No stamina bars, no ads, completely premium would love to see some more updates but honestly it’s great the way it is, would be glad to pay more should the developers decide to add more content. Games like these should really be appreciated when they release on mobile. This really feels like one of those games you can tell the team put their heart and soul into, especially with all the references.

One small thing I would like to see, would be character specific workshop fight scores, just to give a bit more incentive to use the other characters. It’d be fun to know what my highest score was with the masked knife man vs the purple haired lady.

Phenomenal Beat-em-up. Invested Developers.

This game is so rad, congratulations to the devs for producing a truly outstanding beat-em-up for touch screens. The gene bursts with humour and personality. My favorite thing about it is the integration of "slam" moves by making the punch, kick, and charge buttons directional, it's groundbreaking innovation. The only fault I find with the game is how the action moves against the edge of the "combat area", I mentioned this in a previous review and the development team contacted me within 24 hours with feedback on how they are handling the problem. If I wasn't completely enamored with CrazyAnt and Mongoose Studio before, which I kind of was, I am now, more than ever. The asking price for this game is the best value I've spent money on this year.
