Excellent Retro Love Ode

I’ve been playing this constantly. I love what it’s based off of and all the easter eggs sprinkled throughout are awesome. Swipes seem to be registering better now for some reason as well. My only ask is for an IAP to remove ads. I want to support this but don’t see any option anywhere to do so even though someone in a previous review said they paid for that IAP. Add that and this will be perfect 👍🏻

EDIT: I didn’t realize I could keep scrolling past the air tricks to find the IAP’s. Maybe make a 3rd purchase menu with just the IAP’s? Either way, glad I was able to support this awesomeness 👍🏻👍🏻

100 funny references a minute ... and fun gameplay :)

The best part of this game is seeing one pop culture reference after another, many but not all from the 1980s. But beneath that is also a fun and challenging game, with a whole lot more engaging gameplay than many games with this style of graphics. And the IAPs are not greedy. Gameplay hint: This is based on a game about delivering papers ... Aim for those mailboxes. If you reach the end of the course, you will get big points for each video thrown into a mailbox.

Fun but controls need help

When I swipe up to jump on my iPhone XR, it asks me if I want to quit. Not sure what the work around is, please help. Already paid to remove ads. It would also be nice to sync across devices so I can play/restore purchases on my iPad since the phone version is so sensitive.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! On the iPhoneXR there is a grey bar at the very bottom of the screen, is it possible you are swiping that up? Or does it happen when you swipe up in the middle of the screen too? Would love to fix this for you! Please email us at:
