Awesome game!

I really enjoy the music theme and art style! If I could change one thing though, it would be to decrease the amount of time it takes to activate the saw, I find myself tapping to completely mutilate a toxic bunny but being knocked down and forced to accept death because the saw didn’t activate as soon as I tapped, that’s partially on me, but I would definitely like if the response time was a little faster. Other than that, amazing game! Please make more like it!

Cute Endless Runner with Major Problems

I really like the art design of this game, which is a given that I came to this app from the Drawfee Channel. Beyond that and the basic draw of an endless runner that you can pick up and play a little bit at any time, this game offers very little to me and actually feels punishing. The most glaring problem is that, even with Battery Saving Mode on this game drains my battery ridiculously quickly, making it hard to play. The game also freezes for a moment every time I get a checkpoint which often leads to me dying. The least serious problem is that the jump in requirements to unlock the next upgrades jumps significantly and quickly. I get that the draw of these games is to do good enough to earn the currency to get the next upgrade, and as a free game you have to do something to incentivize in-app purchases, so that's not a big deal. However, combined with the battery issue, it just feels like a slog to try to get there.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the thoughtful feedback! Since release we've been tweaking the progression curve to walk that fine line between Longevity and Frustration. In ongoing updates we'll be continuing to polish the frequency of nuts / coins in the game and the costs for upgrades.

Regarding checkpoint freezes, we're working on optimizations with each release please don't hesitate to reach out to us using the "Submit Feedback" form on the "Settings" screen to let us know your device details to make sure we know where to optimize.

Thanks for playing!

Well designed, fairly lackluster

For a second offering by a new developer, this game is impressively well crafted. The character concept is unique, the overall aesthetic design is fun, and the mechanics seem carefully implemented.

That said, it’s a fairly run-of-the mill endless runner—right down to the in game currency and micro-transactions. To that degree, it comes across as very reminiscent of the Spider-Man runner, including how it controls for the most part. Even then, the tap-and-hold use of the “saw” attack isn’t very intuitive nor responsive, and only lasts for limited bursts. On the whole, I was bored within twenty minutes.

It is a fine offering from someone new to mobile game development, but arrives years too late to the scene. The mechanics, in-app micro-transactions, and genre tropes used make this game a sadly generic and boring.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! We're always refining the mechanics in updates to make the gameplay and controls as intuitive as possible. We want Waynesaw to feel like a deadly dirtbike, so be sure to try out the hold-and-drag to chain enemies, in addition jumping ramps to hit high-up enemies. Also keep upgrading your saw as you progress so you can stay in "Saw Mode" as long as possible!

Good luck out there and thanks again for the thoughtful review.
