If you hate IAP avoid.....I don't see why devs can't release both free to play and paid versions of a game, much like lite and full versions.
I would be all over a paid version of this game.

Because then no one would spring for the IAP. They would play the free version long enough to hit the pay wall then buy the full. Of course, human stupidity has exceeded my expectations in the past, so...

Anyway, I guess the impressions here save me a download. Though I might still try it for myself. Very much looks like another case of "what a shame."

Looks great, bu sounds repetitive: "waves and waves" of enemies to defeat?

I'll try it just because it's free and because it sounds a bit like Homeworld (for PC) - which was an amazing game.

Still, it reminds me of the Homeworld for PC which I found amazing, so I would love to try this, but it's currently not available in Norway.

The TA app gets me all excited, sigh.

I was going to post the same thing. It's nowhere to be found.

It's a shame that it appears to lean so heavily on the IAP model. I tend to simply avoid games that have you buy "gold" or "coins" or "space bucks" or whatever. I'd really prefer to just buy the game outright and get the whole game up front.

This is a real shame... The game looks great, but I tend to skip games that use (abuse?) the IAP model. I'd prefer to pay outright and get the whole game.
