    Lol. That's how I've been playing too. Rush through and grab whatever I run across and kinda learn the map, then go through for realsies.

    I've only bought one "armor" (200 coins) and was pretty bummed that it was only cosmetic. I think the expensive ones actually help out.

    Why did I lose my fireball when I equipped new weapon?

    Yeah, no direct plus stats, on the cheap 200 coins armors at least. But you found out by clicking on the picture, that you can equip up to three special stones (eg. magnet/dash, found in chests), right?

    I was grinding a bit for a 1000 armor, but after i wouldn't have had enough coins to unlock all the slots. I expect minimum 4-5 slots.

    @Duke12
    It's a bit of a pain. Not every weapon comes with an unlocked slot, but you can buy it for 500. And you have to buy a skill for every new weapon. And if you want to change the skill, it looks like you'll lose the other one (in-game description).
    I don't like this really. I paid for it and i would like to switch between them. I had to do this for the Katana and Rosebush, too. It is how it is.
    Oh, and watch out your for the yellow frame. I just sank a 500 coin skill on the wrong one (green ok sign), argh!

    PocketGamer just did a quick post on the game.

    Hopefully, they'll do a full review.

    So people who prefer premium games are full of crap unless they buy every premium game, regardless of genre or quality? I've probably spent thousands at the app store, but only on the kinds of games that float my boat. This looks cool, but I don't love platformers on mobile devices, so this zealot will probably pass.

    Sheesh! The completionist in me is getting annoyed.

    Anyone tell me what I'm missing trying to get the third diamond on Wind Grave, the sixth level?

    It's killing me. I've jumped up and down and poked and prodded everything.

    Or have I?

    Yuck!

    I only can speak for me...being a completionist in this game, i could never buy any new game for the next two months (considering my given playtime). Some are really bad/mean hidden, ie. my last diamond in level 7.
    up, between the spikes

    And since there is no contour shown, if it was a chest or a diamond that was found, there is no way giving you a clou, sorry, except
    the secret path right behind the exit portal in level 6
    , but this was too easy anyway, i guess.

    I'm stuck at world 2, level 13.
    Big time badass mean and difficult one, even to complete it only. Man, i suck...

    Not in settings and not in the Devs description, too.
    Just to repeat, the customizable controls are spot on!

    And to answer my own question about back tracking earlier levels...
    Found chest with a triple jump stone in world 2-14. Very, very useful powerup

    This means, i finally beat world 2-13, probably MY most difficult level (this rather early on) ever in a platformer. Done with almost no looting and just concentrating to survive and find the exit at all.

    Glad to hear the controls are spot on! And I will definitely be picking this up tonight. I think the issue for those of us who prefer MFI controls, is that you are typically losing the bottom third of your gaming screen by putting your mitts all over it. So unless a game truly utilizes swipe gestures as the primary control scheme, I always choose MFI. It also makes it a lot easier when playing on your big screen via lightning to HDMI. Trying to hit a virtual button while looking up at a screen is a lot harder than with a real controller. Not trying to sell anyone… Just sharing my perspective.

    Haha.. I just prefer buttons ;) To be brutally honest I don't really play any platformers without MFi support any more(!)

    I reached the second boss in the second world. Ouch, a tough one. I didn't fight him too many times, so i did not find out his pattern yet, but i'm quite convinced already...you must find the water stone (in a chest, but don't recall the level in the first world).
    Without it, you'll be in more trouble to beat a stage in the second world, because the water resistance is hard. This means, you walk and jump much slower. And to beat that boss...hmm.

    If i would start all over again, i mainly would concentrate on lives, weapon range and finding all chests. Oh, and don't spend any coins on a new armor. I bought one for 1000, but there are still only three slots, same as in your default one. And i still have to unlock two slots.

    Since they're not answering my second email, i doubt we'll see anyone in here, pity.

    In my experience, platformers are always better with a controller. Even the ones I played that had wonderfully implemented controls, such as Goblin Sword. Even if 98% of the time the controls function perfectly, that 2% that you just jump to your death because you miss the virtual button… Can drive you crazy!

    I'm missing a diamond on this level also. There isn't a spot on this level I haven't gone over a zillion times, yet I'm obviously missing something. Any clues?
