Thanks! It will be interesting to see if the kids enjoy it.

Edit: nevermind. This seems like a great game that they would love, but the ads are obtrusive and highly irritating. I wish Apple would crack down on app developers for this stuff, because it is evident that unless forced to they will persist and only invent new methods of annoying people.

It is a shame they spoiled this game with BS. I was just thinking how bad I feel for getting it for free because it seems like something worth paying for and that I should redownload after it goes back to the normal price, but now I couldn't care less and will be deleting it without ever showing it to the girls.

Here's a screenshot of what they did to it:

So the ad is relatively small, but they intentionally mask the entire screen until you dismiss it. This occurs between _every_ level.

It's especially insulting considering this app normally costs money, so I guess even people who paid are stuck with these.

Agreed. Simply horrible.
