Nice! Huge night of releases!! I love Nevosoft games. Does anybody know the price structure? Is there IAP to unlock the full game or is it consumable?

How do you unlock the full game?

TIA!

Never mind...you just have to play through all the forest levels and make it to the desert levels where you will be prompted to buy it for $4.99.

once you have completed the first 10 levels, you'll get an option to upgrade.

I'll never understand why developers limit their customer base like this. I'm a crazy early adopter person. I usually buy a game and DLC before I even play it. Sometimes I never play it. I'm nuts, I know, but I also know that I'm not alone.

I love Nevosoft games, so I was fully prepared to buy the DLC immediately. Now I can't. I could certainly play the game and get to the point where the DLC unlocks, but I'm a finicky gamer. I never know when I'm going to have to make room on my iPad for something else.

Anyway...I'll end my rant there. I fully intend on playing the game. Until that point, I guess I will not be giving Nevosoft my money.

You get the option to upgrade after 9 levels, not 10, I just assumed there were 10 levels per land, sorry.

I've no idea what this type of game is called, but this is my favourite out of the ones I've played - I've always thought they looked like they could be fun but they've never been interesting enough for me to persevere past the first few levels before. The different building types and the towers and the paths between the towers (rather then the whole level being open) make a nice change when compared to other games like this.
