Under rating threshold (show) I award this game the award for: "Most persistent moneywhoring in a flash game 2014" The very first thing you see after loading the game up is an advertisement to buy something. Good Job.

Under rating threshold (show) Average, uninspired gameplay, constant begging for Kreds, upgrades take too long through gameplay to force purchase with Kreds (see begging for Kreds). Basically Temple Run without the temples and with more begging for Kreds.

Under rating threshold (show) Geeze when the hell did I fall back into the 90s? This game is like shareware, I'm impressed the loading icon wasn't a little floppy disk with all these nag ads. I hate that a few of the ads have no way to close the ad without going back to the shop screen either. "Want to get more lives?" and you can only push ok.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is awful. The audio's repetitive and often grating. Gameplay's rough, unpleasant and there's more luck than should be involved in a running game. Pretty much everything's overpriced, so unless you spend real life money, you'll be grinding for a LONG time to get just about anything. And of course, the constant "reminders" of what you can spend your hard earned cash on is unreasonably persistent. I realize the developers need money, but real life cash purchases should be an option, not a necessity to progress through the game.1/5. How this horrid game got 4.2 is beyond me. Only way I can imagine it got a rating like that is Gamespot tampering with the ratings somehow. I realize everyone has different tastes in games, but there's no way the general consensus of the Kongregate community is that this is one of the greatest games on the site.

Under rating threshold (show) Who would spend Kreds on this game? Spend money just for the privilege of spending money on the next upgrade? No thanks. A real game developer WANTS people to play their games and doesn't make money a barrier to a FREE game. If this isn't realistically free-to-play, don't market it as such. The extent of indie developer greed is astounding these days.

Under rating threshold (show) A game that rewards skill with locking further levels until you A. Grind mind-numbing amounts of skullies or B. Pay your own money which you probably grinded in your real life job to get. Hmmmm. I choose NEITHER! Medium badge and goodbye. Shitty pay to play. It can't call itself a real game, 1/5.

Under rating threshold (show) This game leaves MUCH to be desired. For starters: a) The first thing I noticed was that the hints don't last nearly long enough for you to read them. "Be careful when summoning-" game starts. Summoning? I didn't know you could summon in this game... This could be fixed by having a hints section b) Each mechanic needs to be explained before or when encountering them. I got the wall running shoes, and had no clue how they worked, had to figure it out through playtesting. Also, I notice you can jump off of the wall, but it's hard to do it correctly (unless I'm doing it wrong - again, an explanation of this would have been nice)

Under rating threshold (show) don't get me wrong,i understand devs need to eat too but SERIOUSLY you ask for money before you even get to the main menu a lot of people get instantly turned off from excessive begging going so far as to quit the game entirely,you have a pretty fun game here but you might get some more players (and thus widening the pool of potential customers) by tuning it down a bit

Under rating threshold (show) Kongregate's badging system is the most corrupt system ever, and is only working for the games which are going to push players to pay for it. The quality of the game is just irrelevant. Kongregate used to be a good website, but I am still waiting some great games to be badged, and these pay to win games which are badged just because they are ment to steal money make me go truly depressed. I am moving to Armor Games, or somewhere.

Under rating threshold (show) This is a horrible game. The hitbox detection is atrocious; I was being killed by obstacles I was past or hadn't come to yet. The glitches are out of control; I jumped once and flew above the map then crashed into it and was stuck behind a wall whenever I respawned so had to restart the game. The begging for kreds is outrageous. The effort by the developers to make this an FtP game shows that they have no idea what FtP games are like. The scaling between levels of items is stupidly high, especially considering that they have such a small effect in game that it's not actually worth buying anything. To get the badges, double jump plus level one health, wall walk, and wall jump is all that is required, because the game is so glitchy that with wall walk and wall jump you can cheese your way through levels. I r8 this sham -8/8 m8. What the staff were thinking giving badges to this pizza is beyond me.

Under rating threshold (show) I'm gonna have to agree with the rest of the people here regarding the microtransactions. I'm not against the principle, I know you want to make money, but reminding me every three runs to buy something? Nuh-uh. Moreover, it becomes pretty clear that after a while, the prices are way higher than the amount of gold coins I can collect, so it's pretty clear that they're waiting for somebody's patience to run thin and they'll just pull out their wallets for the bonuses. It's a pretty standard (yet slightly humorous) running game otherwise. If you tone down the reminders, lower the prices a little, and have more worlds instead of just 3 worlds (with one that requires money), then you might have a solid title. 3/5

Under rating threshold (show) double jump: self-explanatory. wall grip: hold space while near a wall- you should be running. the more upgraded you have it the longer you can hold on. wall jump- allows you to perform another jump after hopping from a wall. upgraded levels allow for more jumps before hitting the ground. skully magnet- attracts coins towards you. upgraded levels increase the attraction distance. only useful in adventure. life slot- allows you to survive more "fatal" dangers. only useful in adventure. chicken flap- allows you to flap your arms, acting as a mini triple jump. upgraded levels allow you to flap more than once. fast recovery- speeds up the recovery time of knocking into objects. panic power: allows ONE escape from grimmy. used up once you are saved. costs 129 each, doesn't upgrade. rubber bones- allows you to fall a LOT more before dying. keep this +ed so everyone can see!

Under rating threshold (show) It's really frustrating that you don't get coin bonuses for achievements, collecting cards by beating challenges, or, well, just about anything. I don't want a lit up item on a list or a playing card that serves no in game purpose, I want to feel like I'm progressing towards additional content.
