Default Call of Mini: Double Shot

Triniti Interactive Limited seem to have released a co-op, Gun Bros type game based on their Call of Mini: Zombies game.

I have searched this forum but could not see a thread so if someone could link the app store details in that would be cool as I dont know how to do it.

I havent yet got the game as I am at work but it looks really good.

If anyone has got the game, please post videos and impressions.

Interesting take on the gun bros. freemium model since this game isn't free. Not really a smart move on trinity interactives part but not surprising at all. I personally will be waiting until the game goes free because TI games always go free sooner or later which I have found out the hard way and it seems that they have been changing all their games to this not free freemium model.

A couple of people have reviewed it in the UK app store and said its terrible. Plus there are no game play videos and it came out of nowhere.. not a good start.

yeah, I'm also very glad I checked this out before hitting buy. I really did enjoy Call Of Mini... but really... paying for a freemium modeled game?

and yes... most Triniti games go free eventually. I actually can't think of one that hasn't.

THe original game hasn't gone free. I don't see where all the hate from freemiums comes from. It just pisses me off.

I'm confused... most of Triniti's games, including the original Call of Mini, are near freemium with unlockables difficult to achieve with in game play alone (requiring IAP cash purchases). Is this really any different at all from the normal for them? If so, how? I am geniunely interested because despite the above CoM: Zombies is a blast but I am too frugal to TOFTT at this point. Can anyone who has actually played this game comment on IAP structure?

Edit: I agree the unlockables are absurd but for $0.99 if there is a solid core vanilla game then it leaves litte room to complain. The high dollar unlockables in the original were more perks than anything. Also say what you want about Triniti but CoM:Zombies got multiple content free updates.

The developers usually rig the gameplay so that the progression is slow enough to trigger the consumer into buying IAPs, It should piss you off more than developers do this, trying to monetize their products completely instead of giving to their fanbase.
