Default Game Impressions

If there's a more talented and more dedicated developer on the app store, I'd love somebody to point me in their direction. These guys just know what makes a game fun and how to implement it. You could talk about genre, and style, and different strokes, but none of that is particularly relevant here. This is pure gaming. Done right.

I was disappointed to see inclusion of IAP, but hard to tell at an early stage to what extent it is intrusive.

Please tell me that "IAP" is a typo error!?! If its true then how do they effect the gameplay....what a silly question.....how stupid of me to be questioning this game I know very little about it..have not played a second of it but I like what I see and SV said don't think just buy!!! I must!!!

The iap is cake. It's an in game currency. You can get it just by playing, you can get it by liking on Facebook and using twitter, and you can buy it. I guess it's related to pets, but I'm still figuring the game out.

Thanks for letting us know. Think I'll wait until tomorrow to see what the verdict will be on this game....

If I had to compare the game to anything, it'd probably be Punch Quest, in that it's a quirky endless with seemingly unobtrusive iap that's made by well respected devs. It is fun, though I'm still learning the mechanics- never played a surfer. Was nice seeing Axolotl again.

As Gabrien said, Kumobius is a developer who has met and surpassed all promises and expectations in regards to Bean's Quest.

And if that isn't enough, then wow does the gameplay every look insane!
