This was my post from it's main thread, when i got the game... This was in the previous version, so im not sure if stuff have been changed. I have downloaded the new one but havent played yet.

EDIT: I want to add this... to a line from below:
"I guess they found some way to slow down powerlevelling, or force IAP to the grinders"

Regular missions take 1 Smiley to replay, and Boss fights take 3 Smileys to replay.

Fortunately, these smileys can be bought with ingame money, OR they replenish on their own like 1 smiley every 3 hours.

So far, I didnt see anything that could increase the number of smileys, and I've had a max of 10 since I started playing.

I guess they found some way to slow down powerlevelling.

Playing a mission a first time until completed does not cost any smiley. As long as you havent completed that mission, it doesnt cost a smiley to play it.

At a buck, this game should be worth getting. It's a pretty unique take on the mission-based action-adventure genre.

Woot! I'm not seeing any smiles! Guess they have removed it in one of the updates .

GREAT brawler. Simple controls with a timing based combat system. Your attacks feel powerful and it's really satisfying to fight.

I'm assuming smiles are different from the "OC" listed in the IAP list? Explanation please?

I had to see it for myself so i loaded up Brandnew Boy into the 4s.

There isnt any Smileys anymore! Unfortunately, the initial bonus was also gone. In the first version it gives you free gold. I think it was around 50,000.

Also, a lot of stuff is different.

Looks like I will have to spend a lot of time on this one. LOL.

Yeah that's confusing me too.

In the shop screen, a lot of the items are locked behind a level requirement so I'm unable to see their price.

The only purpose for OC I can currently confirm is to exchange for coins.

Btw the skill bar is now located down the bottom left corner (middle right border of the screen in images).

Do you still need some kind of currency to replay a mission?

Would love to play it. Didn't work for me. Buyer beware if you are playing on 3GS. Looks cool, though.
