What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.

Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future...

Features:
- Platforming action! Coins to collect, a princess to save, a bad guy to defeat. You like that stuff, right?
- 16 different DLC packs, each providing quiet introspection on the state of the gaming industry
- 10 awardments to earn and make you feel reasonably satisfied with yourself

Real quick fun. Got it part of the indie bundle, mainly for hard reset, but was suprise at how much fun something so simple is. Plus, love the industry humor

Got it from the St. Patrick Indie Royale Bundle: great 1 hour game (maybe less), funny and addictive. Include a great deal of satire to the gaming industry!

There's a DLC to speed up grinding by 1000x. "Time is Money DLC"

Agree with Real_Atomsk. We should have gotten something for the grind :"(

And that did take longer than the game itself x"D:

I wish it were a tad longer, but for $2 it's not bad at all. Hilarious game!

And I haven't gotten all the awardments yet, so I guess that'll give me something to accomplish later.

Short, but very enjoyable and worth what you're paying for.

Underneath its somewhat funny satire, it's just a very short and very basic platformer, even with all DLC. One might say that's part of the joke, but "it's bad on purpose" doesn't really make it worth playing.
