    Like the look of this and the Characters, now I am not perse an endless runner fan, but this game I will try for sure, good luck with your launch, great that it has Achievements, that is always a plus for me.

    I read in the description that it has levels were you can get three stars on, now I am confused is it endless or level based.

    Each level is an endless runner, playing the next level will help you get a better score.
    You will unlock the next level after you fill the progress bar and you may keep running to reach a three stars progress. As in any other endless runner game, the more time you spend playing it, the more challenging and rewarding it gets.


    At the moment, your highscore will be transferred via Facebook and Game Center.
    We are working to transfer all the player’s stats via Game Center.

    We really appreciate your feedback, guys.

    When you said, your looking to transfer stats via gamecenter in a future update, does that mean all purchased upgrades and characters with transfer over after the update?

    The gameplay is definitely similar to Yoshi: Touch and Go on the DS and that more recent Kirby game on the WiiU Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. You draw your path and the little guy goes wherever you're drawing....but it's super fast paced compared to these platformers, it's fun so far!

    @Superhippo can you share more details on how the fireflies and the main runner guys work together?

    Great news guys! We’ve locked down the date for iOS and Android global release: 2nd of June!
    We’ll be waiting for all of you to join us in our fight against the Scientist and his squared minions! Run! Don’t Be Squared!

    Mr_wexer, it’s nice to see you’ve found the resemblance with Yoshi and Kirby. Indeed, Don’t Be Squared is super fast paced and it’s way more challenging! You need to be very sharp to avoid all kinds of danger The Scientist sends your way. Obstacles, the magic ray, different squared enemies with different dynamics, all of them will try to get you and turn you into a cube. So, you definitely must run, dodge and hit enemies and obstacles using clouds and/or dash.
    But you are not alone! Fireflies are your helpers. Each one has a special power you need in order to overcome danger. Also, the main runner guys have special powers! Get them all and assemble the perfect team to beat each set of enemies in the environments you’ll discover!

    Sounds awesome I was a huge fan of Yoshi Tounch and Go back in the day. Getting the high scores on Cyberscore was my weekend done :))
