This is an awesome game!!!!👍 The beginning is so funny! Poor guy though. I love how challenging it is and all the characters!! It would be cool if you could build your own character! But I really like the characters you have put!! Personally I think this game is for everybody! If you like fairytales this is definitely the game is ideal
One quick question does this game have an end I’ve always wondered does the princess ever get out of the tower??🤔
It’s December, I think you should have a Christmas theme! It would be cool it the dragon had a Santa hat!!
Another question can you fire a the dragon I know you can with the dragon stones but can you with the dragon?? I’ve never actually tried it though.
I just want to say it’s an amazing game!!!!👌
Another question does the guy come back??
And what happens when you unlock all of the characters do you just keep playing but then there’s no goal?
There should be a hammer that breaks stone! Right!
Anyways I love this game ❤️ !!
And the fact that you added Scagoewea is just awesome!! Whoever’s idea that was should get a raise!!
I love this game but it needs an update! I really want a Christmas 🎄 theme.
That’s it!
Hope more people get this game if they do they WILL LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! 😍😍😍😍

Pretty fun but..

I’m enjoying it so far but there are a few things I don’t understand. 1. What is up with the score multipliers? Does it increase my fireflies at the end of escape? If so then It doesn’t look like it and if it doesn’t then why is it there? 2. What’s the purpose of the other characters? There if very little details about them. Do they have special powers? Or new built in mechanics? If so it doesn’t say and if they don’t they why should I ever change characters other to look different. 3. Is there any way to use the shop other than IAPs? If so then that’s rather disappointing knowing that I’m missing out on an entire section of the game plus the fact that there little reward for progressing through the game other than fireflies which decrease if I decide to purchase upgrades throughout my run.
I feel like if there were more descriptions and explanations it would a lot more enjoyable than confusing and it would be cool if you got those shards/gems that you use in the shop when completing the challenges. Otherwise there is no particular reason to do them other than the multipliers which from what I know have little to no use.

Great! A couple suggestions

This is a really fun and challenging game, with a cute design! But I think it’s a shame that you can’t see the princesses’ descriptions (e.g. “The dragon is nothing compared to the conquistadors”) once you’ve unlocked them. All you’d have to do is add an extra confirmation screen with the description after tapping the portrait. Not a huge difference!

One bug report: in the Halloween update, Oscura’s hammer changes to black to match the color of the tower.

One question: If Dalilah is a mummy, why does she have a Hebrew name? Why not an Egyptian name, or even a Greek or Roman name? Is she supposed to be a Hebrew slave who was mummified? And if she’s supposed to be the Biblical Delilah (I can’t check the description to make sure), why is she wrapped in bandages like a mummy? Is there a pop culture reference I didn’t get?
