Nearly flawless! 👌

A great game, good old retro style with new ideas. I've been battling the enemies for hours!! This game would deserve a 5 star IF the retry amount wasn't so high! I've destroyed the air bear 3 times and still only have 81 coins, you have to play for hours if you ever want to keep on going from your death!!!!!! Stupidity at its finest 😠

Could be fun, but still quite unfair.

I like the concept, and might stick around for a bit, but the idea of getting a game over for letting go of the diamond needs to go, as it has resulted in some downright unfair game overs that came seemingly out of nowhere and ruined my run. Once this mechanic is gone and a couple of aesthetic adding are added to an in game store, I might consider this a must-have.


I have literally played days on this game. It is utterly amazing. I love you mutant labs. From rbcs.
