    Background: I am a uni student and have been working on this game as a side project for the past 6 months or so. It is the first android application I made, and it was programmed by a team of me, myself, and I. It has long been a dream of mine to actually finish a game or application (I have many half-completed projects) so I am estatic to have actually released this one :).

    Game/Controls: Use the touch screen to move the main character left or right. Double-tap anywhere on the screen to jump to that point (over all obsticles). Collect powerups (there are two different types in the current build, though I am working on adding a third) to help you get an even higher score. The goal is to get the highest score you can! Have fun!

    Feedback: I am basically just looking for feedback/constructive criticism on the game itself (how are the controls, how fun is it, etc). Also please tell me about any bugs that you might encounter.

    I also want input on the advertising. Is it intrusive or annoying, or is it fine? I am going to be releasing an ad-free paid version when my game is out of beta if that makes any difference.

    EDIT: New version out, 0.2.0.
    Changelog:
    * NEW FEATURE: Shield is no longer on or off, it now has 5 levels.
    * NEW FEATURE: Added taunts on death, however if you are good enough they become compliments. The question is; are you that good?
    * Changed difficulty to better suit new shield powerup.
    * Fixed issue with milestone system not displaying milestones on second playthrough
    * Fixed issue with shield not scaling properly on lower resolution devices
    * Added variable shield sizes to show the shield level.
    * Fixed issue with score not being displayed correctly in some circumstances.
    * Modified help/about screen
