I was just looking at this the other day because someone who had good taste in games recommended it in the unrecognized games thread. Now it will be mine.

I've been skeptical of the whole IAP system since it came out because many reported it double charging. This will be the first IAP purchase I will be making.

Honestly, why can't the devs just make a lite and a paid version it has me a little shaken up.

also to point out, why can't the characters in this game just wear NORMAL clothes. Honestly, they're all at least half naked.

Currently enjoying: CtR, AB: Space, Guitar Hero, Rock Band Reloaded, Burger Queen World, Hunters: Episode One, Batman Arkham Lockdown, Ice Race, Bar Oasis1.5, Air Gamblers: Supremacy, Mage Gauntlet, Real Racing 2, Inotia2/3, Undercroft, Pocket Warriors, Ascension, Chaos Rings

That was quick.

Been holding out from the IAP purchase, but this sale makes it cheap enough to go ahead without much regret.

I really dislike the way they make you go through their servers for the transaction though. I understand they want to make the game appealing enough to simply download and try out, instead of relegating the process to a separate "lite" app, but consumers don't gain anything from this, plus we risk losing our purchase if the company closes its doors. Bleh.

I also wish they'd implement an HQ filter to compensate for the assets' low graphical resolution. It's painful to watch especially on an iPad.

It saves the consumer time (both from downloading two apps and from replaying the first part of the game) and saves the developer the need to keep track of two separate apps.

It's never happened before for a game that requires an iAP to unlock content to the game. Let's not get scared about things that haven't happened once in the three and a half years the AppStore has been around.

In any case, I'm sure you'll enjoy the game either way. Definitely a great buy.
