Well i have to say the game looks really great, at least it does seem to have a style of its own compared to other titles from gameloft. (Excluding the paper monster comparison)
But yeah, the freemium aspect is really bad, up to 80$ for one monster, 3 types of currencies...
It's a shame the potential is there for a real, non freemium, pocket monster game but not with that type of buisness model.
Steer clear of it : )

My nine-year-old got hit with the same game-killing bug this morning.

He was at level 25 and had 8 creatures. He LOVED those creatures.

He now hates Gameloft with a red-hot passion. He even deleted Order & Chaos off his iPad.

Ouch, that sucks. I have to say, Gameloft makes nice looking games, but the substance beneath that pretty exterior is often lacking. This is not the first time I've come across problems with their games, either bugs or design flaws.

With iOS games, indie is really where it's at.

Speaking of which actually, my company, LCD Dreams, is going to be announcing a new mobile game soon - probably next week. Nothing related to Monster Life though (besides a lighthearted style), so I won't go into details here.

We have now hit the same 69% load bug as well, and my son is bummed. Guess I'll be reaching out to Apple for a refund on my IAPs.
