Scooped this up. It looked interesting when I first saw it highlighted, just never got around to checking it out thoroughly. I'll dive in once finals are over in the next week or so.

Thanks for making this free for the day!

Looks like they've added a ton of IAP. Not sure if it hinders the game at all but just a warning to those looking at this, seems like this may be going the way of the freemium pet apps now....

Awesome, had this on my wish list.
Hope the IAP isn't too obstructive.

Seems like the coins are the major currency in the game and have a significant impact. But I can't speak much to it, so I don't want to slam what I don't know.

IAP clarification

The IAP allows you to buy coins.

Coins

--can be used to buy 'instant' refills.
  • The bars can be filled by interacting with your pet. (usually less then a min)
    via energy - recharge by sleeping (which take some time [hrs] )

--can be used to get other perks like 'Reviving pet' 'Immune to sickness' etc..

Coins can be earned by playing mini games. Generally very easy to earn.
10-15mins can get you quite an amount..

So i wont say that this is a IAP heavy/focus app. The IAP is mainly use for people who are lazy to earn coins via games.. and need a quick shortcut..
