This price is a 66%-off intro sale; there is also an entirely optional IAP currency (the game explicitly states the optional nature of this during the tutorial) you can pick up within the game.

For a dollar, it isn't even worth wasting time asking if it's worth picking up.
That's what I'm thinking. This looks like a cross between Recettear and Final Fantasy Tactics.

Cheers, I hope the game is balanced with no IAP in mind then, rather than to encourage it.

Still, as you say, it's just a dollar, there's no way I'm not giving it a go!

Competitive pricing/sale

According to the dev, there's IAP that's been added on top of the PSP port. So, it's strictly optional.

It is indeed since the first Build hadnt none and the iAP was added at the last Day if I remember it right.

It`s save to say that the IAP is as Optional as it can be.

Is the app really universal? They said in their fb fan page that it will be iPhone/iPod only.

Eh, whoops, it's not.

Sorry, I'm going on very little sleep here - personally I'm impressed that this is the first error I made.

Could a mod please help?
(Or give me the power to edit my own dang titles)

The combat looks a bit more involved that traditional japanesque FF-style timer-based combat, since this engine seems to offer positioning (which really makes all the difference in interactivity. See Final Fantasy Tactics versus traditional FF combat ).

And even with fully automated combat, I'd probably have been interested, for the other aspects of the game. A title like this could go either way. It could be a silly time-management (= waste) game, an involved sim with pleasant RPG and adventure additions, or even a complete mesh of the three genres. I'm betting on one of the latter, and will most certainly back up that bet with 0.99 come midnight
