I'm a little upset with Vitaly. The game is great and I love it, but there are misspelled words all over! Sometimes even right next to the same word that's spelled correctly! It drives me nuts! Other than that, it's a fantastic game.
Maybe add an option to hide the bar showing your amount of gold/rubies/vigor during missions? I like to be able to see the whole screen. And maybe move the objective as well to a more out of the way location? Just some thoughts.
Julius9Caeser came up with an idea I like. He suggests being able to upgrade armor, (Whether it be strictly Island Armor Sets, or possibly every piece of armor) by spending rubies/gold on them to increase the current stats they have, so they can still be quite helpful as you level up and/or before you get the next best thing?
