Sometimes I wonder how many people hear this EXACT phrase in their head every time a new Glu game is released...

Fall in love, download, play for a bit, notice ridiculous IAP prices, ignore them, play a bit more, hit enormous pay-wall, delete game... fall in love, dow...

I give up.

If you use the "Tapjoy Method", its not too bad. I do that with all of Glu's games. Sure it's a pain in the ass sometimes, but its worth it with some titles. I played Gun Bros for months without spending a dime and just downloading/opening/deleting Tapjoy apps. I'm doing the same now with Gun Bros 2 and Eternity Warriors 2. Lol, there in NO WAY I'm paying 20 bucks for a weapon or whatever on some of Glu's games.

Yup. Lure you in with a great game, get you hooked and then force you to grind incessantly to advance until you burn out or pay up, while simultaneously restricting half of the potential upgrades with a second currency that is analogous to putting salt into a large paper cut while listening to fingernails on a chalkboard while watching Titanic in slow motion in prison.
