Personally, I don't mind so much in-game placement advertising. It's the forced click, popups or stealing game window real estate I feel are a problem.
But yeah, I guess I haven't played the game in ages as I had no clue there were ads. I also had to load and check it out. At first I didn't even notice it, then realized it was a scrolling text along the top. It's definitely not something that would cause me to avoid the game. I actually don't think I've played the game since I got my iPad 1.5 years ago. I don't recall ever playing it on the larger screen.
