The creator(s) of this game deserve an award. It’s so much fun and filled with 80s references from my childhood. You guys did a
great job!

'100 funny references a minute ... and fun gamepla

'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: Th

'Great game'

'It’s a fantastic game and I’m always playing it but I can’t get passed the part at the end where you trying to dodge the
bottles because the car isn’t there and I can’t tell where the bottles are going to be thrown'

'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

'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.'

'It’s still fun'

'I play the Nintendo Switch version of this game and I’m glad it can reach more audiences. I prefer the Switch version but this
version is nice too. It’s a fun little game and the art style reminds me of Shooty Skies.'

Wish it was easier

Love the old paperboy feel and characters. Even the sound is great.
My issue is it’s too difficult to just enjoy. Why can’t you have a few try’s before you start over or maybe a check point?
Also how do you get past the sewer? Can’t jump over second pipes

Give it a try for yourselves but I like a

Soooo much potential!!!

Love the idea of the game & would actually pay for it but you only get the 1 life and that’s it! It’s such a cool game,
probably 1 of the best mobile games, but you have to fix this!!! I also wish we had control options..😞

Too hasty with the monetization

The problem here is that the game doesn’t let you play enough to get the hang of it before it begins to serve ads. If I have to
watch an ad before I can tell if the game is fun, it’s an easy decision to delete it.
