Personally I think this game is garbage, both for it's poor game design, as well as it's predatory business practise. However, Snotty is right in that he doesn't deserve personal bile directed towards him. He isn't exactly defending the game nor the freemium structure as a whole, he simply points out what certain mechanics exist, which they do like them or not. He has some valid points even if you don't agree with everything he says.

So I spent time going after the achievements to earn premium gems, digging away at the gem blocks and ignoring PVP or raiding completely and last night I got the 800 gems needed to buy a third imp, no money spent. I was happy to see that the 2x speed boost thing last an hour now instead of 30 minutes. That's great.

So, as one of those people who sees free to play games with high IAP cost as a challenge to get the premium stuff without paying, I'm loving it! And I'll be through digging to one of the corner mines by the end of the day.

I like it.

Nevermind the freemium iOS reboot, GOG is giving away the unadulterated 1997 classic Dungeon Keeper (+ expansion) for PC/Mac desktop/laptop systems (not iOS, but a great deal) Free.
