Although a decent game, the TA rating is much too generous. What's more is that with a recent update, the game has become filled with constant ads. It'll take $3 to remove them. Of course, there's the usual currency (stars in this case) purchasing iAPs as well. The currency will be used to buy upgrades that help you shoot up the leaderboards, but can also be earned at an extremely slow pace as well.

the ads were just added with the update that went live today. Pretty friggin upset about it... got this one the day it came out...

too many developers are doing this these days...

game doesn't sell well? throw ads into it! Screw the people who've already paid for the game... they don't matter... not like they did anything to support us... f em!


in case you're wondering... Jumping Action - Little Dreamer did the same thing today... so I'm not in a very good mood... was one of my favorite endless jumping games...

Worst of all the game keeps "hiccuping" each time an ad is loaded during gameplay. The fact that people who payed for the game are now saddled with this version rockets this developer straight towards the top of my "treat with extreme caution" list. I understand the disappointment from poor sales, but this is totally unacceptable. Shame on you dev. (And furthermore, doing something like this to your game illustrates how little respect for your own work you have in the first place.)

Big Blue Bubble did Burn The Rope, Dark Insursion, Fighting Fantasy, Paper Munchers...

It's hard to think of them really needing to throw ads into this game...


But yeah, totally agree... they are now on my 'no buy' list.

Hmm did you have the game before the update? Because I re-downloaded it, and I'm not seeing ads either. I'm wondering if the ads are only seen by people who didn't have the game before the update...
