Glad this went free, looks interesting. I am curious about the questing and RPG elements mashed with how screen shots appear.

A few of the iTunes reviews say "unplayable without IAP ammo".

Slimy if true for a normally paid app.

downloaded and tried it. it's well made but it's not my cup of tea, genre-wise.

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

not unplayable... but gets very damn "grindy" later since by the time you have the money for different bullets, you need to buy supplies again for your current ammo selection...

i enjoyed it quite a bit when it was released... but most of the good things are from IAP... and it gets very frustrating.... i deleted it, can't really recommended outside of free... and even then... still a bit hard

Agree on the grindy bit. It's a game best tackled in small bites. I bought it when it first came out and I'm still not done with it, but I'm fine with that - it doesn't play that differently as you go up in level, so it's one of those "reliable companion" games. It's different enough from everything else I play that it works for those times I need something different that doesn't require me to remember everything that led up to this point in the campaign.

I agree with a lot of what is said. The game is good in small doses. The good weapons require IAP and once you hit later levels its a grind fest to get anywhere. I have tons of money and no bananas which require you to use real money to buy. My stats are glitched, achievements are glitched and it crashes occasionally. I'm on the fence about deleting it.
