So is this why Atari has been going around with all their asteroid lawsuit crap?

After reading the preview theres a fair few IAP's you can get but I'm not complaining. Glad theres a new Atari game, hope it plays well. I thought it was odd it was 'free' but hopefully wont be too expensive to 'unlock' it

I know it's going yo be a Freemium title, so a free game but geared to have you purchasing its many IAPs for EVEN MORE FUN, but here is my concern I'd love any early adopters to reveal to me:

-Are there any PERMANENT IAPs? As a guy playing on two devices I hate when the IAPs are only a form of currency that not only can't be transfered to another device but all of your purchases are lost if you need to reinstall the game even on the initial device.

-Can credits be earned in-game at a reasonable rate? If it is going to require 10 games just to buy a single use power-up, forget about it.

-How many of these upgrades are IAP only and therefore not even an option to buy with the game's currency even if you did save up for years?

Thanks in advance to anybody who can shed light on these items.
