Run and throw back trash cans into bisons that are coming for you!

Tip: Try to grab trashcans just before they hit you, don't keep 'Grab' button pressed all the time.

Good job! Loved the art! My score is currently at 582053 and I don't feel like I'm ever gonna lose, nor do I feel a sense of progress in difficulty. I believe if it were easier to lose and easier to get to the higher speed it would be more dinamic and rewarding. Even though I've been plating for a while, I still didn't get to the highest speed, and it seems like I'm slowed down just as easily as I speed up, but there's too large of a gap between those things happening, which could be better if stuff was getting faster.

Keep up the great work! 

Thanks!

I've made some balance changes for all platforms now: should be harder now :)

Hooo men , you are god... a played it and I got 9267 points!! 

Nice job dude! I was following your work all time! That's really fun!

Nice job 

Really fun, great work. I also did an endless runner, really like your take on it.

Well, technically it is not endless, but it is very hard to beat ;)

The music, graphics and feeling is amazing ! Good job !
I don't really understand the losing condition though, something bisons rushes on me and sometimes they stay idle.
Also you can lose even if you correctly grab everything, did I miss something ?

When something hits you - you move  back a bit. When you are too close to bisons - you lose.
