UPDATE 1.2
Hi everybody, v1.2 is live! Thanks for your feedback and for supporting us this far! Have a try and let us know what do you think, enjoy!

v1.2:
- Drops and Limbs opacity lowered.
- Player hitarea reduced
- Bullets always on front
- More contrast in background
- Endless mode changed (see below)
- Fixed 10K achievement
- Less Stones during the first stage
- The First stone type now shoots less bullets
- Max Distance as a new Leaderboard
- Coin magnet!

Notes:
- Contrast: by putting more contrast in the background and touching the alpha of limbs and drops we feel like the game is much more clear and players can focus betters on bullets and monsters.
- Endless Mode: here we have many changes. We have removed 10K cap and made the gameplay much more difficult. No dudes, no spells, only the random heart and the weaponomicons. Every 1000 meters a random boss spawns, there’s a “lite” version of Yog too. Since now players can reach even greater distances, we have decided to add a “Max Distance” stat. There’s a leaderboard for that too.
- Coin magnet: now you can attract money, this feature is linked with the drain ability, higher drain means also bigger magnet radius (from 0 to 250)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

I've enjoyed this game for awhile now. I just dont know how anyone could possible beat this game in less then 8 minutes or how they could beat it without using any spells. The only way to best the game is to complete all of the missions, which even on a speed focused run would take 15-20 minutes. The only way to complete all of the missions is to cast spells, which takes you out of that medal as well.

Am I missing something, or to earn those medals do you have to try and beat a single run through in 8 minutes (which I feel I have multiple times) and a single run through without spells? (which would never happen for me)

I'll probably play through one more time because I'm just 1 upgrade away from the upgrade medal and also havent tried endless mode either.

Ive been playing this on and off for a month to get where I am.

Like the game so far, but i sometimes have a bug, where one enemy on the screen just becomes unhittable for some reason. This is manageable if it happens to some mook, but when it happens to a boss the game becomes unwinnable. Otherwise not much to criticize in my opinion.

it made my pee hard

Fantastic and reeled me back in everytime! what a game!

Now that's how a runner game with bosses should ever be.
A more serious/darker ending would've been way better to me, though.
Congratulations, anyway. Stylish, fun and well-put together.
