Hm... hello paywall, I assume.

A real pity because I absolutely like the character design and the slightly more mature style.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

There's that saying... Even though it's free, I still feel ripped off!

I have lost respect for Gamevil. Why the fluffy bunny can't they just make a game, put a price on it and leave it at that? No iAPs, no freemium. Just let the customer buy that damn thing and enjoy the game without paying these extras!!

Since KRPGs are still a niche of some sort, a company needs to earn money. The premium Zenonia games didn't brought in that much, I assume, so they switched the business model.

Exactly thats what i think, i'm not a fan of freemium but as you say the premium games probably didnt bring in as much as expected so they made the switch.

There are lots of charts on the internet which prove that fremium/paymium spills way more money in Apple's and the devs's pocket than premium games. There are a few exceptions (Doodle Jump, Angry Birds, FIFA soccer), but these are only exceptions.

Well, since I don't know how fair/unfair the IAP model is here, I'll wait with my final opinion until I played the game. Everything else is an assumption and worth nothing, tho I doubt that Gamevil chages the current model they're using. Personally, I'd wish for a model like in Epic Hearts or Crimson Heart.

I'm just going to wait for Zenonia 7, that's supposed to be the best one, right? Although Zenonia 6 might be the cult favorite.

LOL... good one.

Avoid Zenonia 13, btw.
