Great game. If it wasn't for the need to buy turns to keep playing (or to spend $7 for unlimited turns) I would consider it the best game I've seen in 2012. I don't play freemium games at all, and while yours is good, its not good enough to get me to start.

Having said that, your statement is obviously not true. With unlimited coins, I could keep buying trees, crystals and Imperial bots, and get as high a score as I wanted. While it may be true that am average player buying a little in the store will not do as well as a skilled player buying nothing, its not that hard to get to the point where buying stuff will net you much higher scores then playing well.

I would agree with you except for the need to purchase turns.

Is the only way to get more turns by spending coins or paying for the unlimited unlock, or do you get more over time?

This is a GREAT match 3 game, but $7 for unlimited turns is crazy. Bring that down to $3 or so, and I'm in.

Lol above posts proclaim this as a GREAT game yet they won't pay money for it. This is well worth the 7 dollars.

No, that's not connect. Every item in the store has a supply limit. There are only four Imperial Bots, for example. Once you've bought them all, you can't buy more until your game is finished and restarted. It is impossible to buy your way to a high score.

I'm just curious. Did you actually LOL, or are you just saying LOL? In any case, if it is well worth 7 dollars to you then I suggest you buy it. But you should try to understand that its worth is a subjective opinion, and not fact. I think its a great game, but not great enough to spend $7 on. Can you understand that distinction.

I don't usually talk about prices or IAP, but IMO, IAP to unlock basic gameplay is a losing game anyhow. I have four people I often gift games to, and had this been a straight $3 game, I would have sent it to all of them. But, since I can't gift an IAP, I can't give it to any of them whatever the cost.

Oh, I didn't realize that.

Never mind...

I will pay money for it, but I won't pay $7. There are other fantastic match 3 games that are more reasonably priced, such as Dungeon Raid.

This port is really an EXACT port of their game on Facebook, Google+, or Chrome. Try it one of those places first and see if it grabs you (or, heck, on your favorite iOs device as it is free). I reminds me a lot of Alchemize with moving bears and without the gravity.
