I will either reduce or completely remove the repair rate either way. Thank you for your patience!

Edit: I did confirm an issue with the game at 75,000hp for some players. I will fix this in an update ASAP plus some new, non-in app content based on the community's feedback! Thank you to everyone who downloaded and I apologize to anyone affected by the negative issues. It was definitely not intentional.

Edit: I have submitted a new, fixed version 1.01 for this app.
Are you sure that was a "bug", or a clever design to keep people needing to spend real money?

Yes it was a bug, I fixed it very quickly because I know I'm gonna drown in bad reviews if it doesn't get fixed. I plan to design apps (this is my first) for a long time.

Well I wish you nothing but luck. Sorry if I sound harsh, but the App Stores too overcrowded to sugar-coat things.

A piece of unsolicited advice for your future projects:
a very small percentage of players are going to stick around doing something as monotonous as tapping a screen repeatedly with no pay-off for an hour.

I appreciate the input! And again I apologize to anyone who played the game and were affected by the issues.
