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) Got my 5 point badge and ran. The game too often asks you to spend real money, the soundtrack was muted after 5 minutes and the responsiveness of the controls feels very...muddy. Wall running and double jumping often lead to really wacky results, and there is no consistency on how they operate at times.

Under rating threshold (show) It's ridiculous how much this game pushes players to spend actual money, especially when the game can't even stand on its own merits. Unreliable controls, shop items that are almost impossible to buy without shelling out Kreds, and gameplay that relies far too much on luck rather than on skill make this game seem like the developers did as little work as necessary for the sake of making a buck. And now this game, this terrible two-year-old game that's pretty much universally reviled, has badges? Unbelievable. My advice: get the badges and run far away. 2/5.

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) 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) 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) 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 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.
