Other than the "bad" English translation, I simply can't find a single fault with this one. What a ****ing joy to play. More than highly recommended. This is a must-have.

Maybe it's this:



Rather whopping for a normally paid game that's obviously thought for kids. And those IAPs are not mentioned or explained with one single word in the lengthy app description text.

Been playing for while and the game's pretty generous when handing out acorns. There's obviously going to be quite a bit of grinding involved, but you can replay levels as much as you want and even if you fail a level, you retain your acorns. Yeah, I don't get why there's a $50 IAP, but it's nothing unobtainable by playing the game.

Thank you very much for your explanations, mc. In the name of dev—who's job that should be imho.

For how long exactly, if you don't mind my indiscreet curiosity, mc? Did you buy any IAPs?

So you would recommend it as a "real FREE" app and not as a cheap feint of dev for making some money if I understand you correctly.

BTW played it for some minutes and it seems to be fun indeed. But I don't even start seriously with a puzzle-like game when I don't know before if I'll need IAPs (money) for progress/success or "just" skills.

I've played through the first area and 2 of the second. Haven't run into any trouble just yet, but yeah... I see where you're coming from and I don't know just how grinding will be needed later on to upgrade vs. just buying IAPs. We'll have to wait and see.

Thank you for your comment. Can you tell us which parts have bad English translation? So we can change those parts in coming update.

We did not mentioned about IAPs in the description since you don't really need to purchase one to progress. You buy IAPs only if you want to progress fast without using any strategical game-play. (if you have enough ammo+weapons+power, you just have to swipe, tap tap tap to rescue animals)

You're welcome.

Regarding the English translation, is there any way I can convince you to send me a document with literally every single English word and sentence in the game? If you want, I can go through it, fix all the little errors and send it back. When I say "word", it says "Buy Coin" on the menu instead of "Buy Coins", for example.

There's honestly nothing wrong with the game now and it's charming in its own way, but if you're willing to fix the translation, that goes a long, long way, and I'd be glad to lend a helping hand.
