Uuuuuh, I hate ngmoco, but this game looks fun and no iap from what i can tell. Darn you!!!!!!!!!!! Will post impressions later.

Yeah... 1 board from the start, 2 when unlocked. Unfortunately this is one of those "wait to play games" (IAP will be added later). I played until I ran out and it was kind of fun. It's easy to clear the board and spin the wheel, and there are special challenges to get prizes. Besides that though, there's not much. I got bored.

Stick to peggle and coin drop, much better.

Pretty sure there's going to be IAP at some point. There's an "Add Balls" option that says coming soon. I doubt Ngmoco would make a free game with no method of earning them income.

Yeah, it plays like Coin Dozer, in that one you run out of balls you have to wait and get one ball every thirty seconds. It was great fun for about a half hour, now it's a chore. I guess I shouldn't have expected more from The 'Moco.

If they made this as a straight up game, start with say 40 balls, high score leaderboards, etc, I would easily pay $3 for it. It is a great game, I just don't like the wait to pay aspect. Maybe they'll add an IAP for endless mode.

Agreed! I dont appreciate when devs ruin a great game with IAPs hoping everyone buys them when more people would buy the full game without being made to jump through digital hoops.
