Liked the looks of this and picked it up. Immediately noticed two things that have me worried. The text is really poorly displayed. Lines cut off mid word making it hard to read, and that's just a sign of a cheap game to me. Second there is a coin shop that I was already directed to twice and I've only played a few minutes. Seems this might be a 3 dollar paidmium game, but we'll see. I'll post more when I've played more. Otherwise the gameplay seems to be pretty good so far, about what I was expecting.

That would be enough to piss me off, personally. It's one thing to have IAP in a $3 game, but I surely wouldn't want to be harassed to buy it after just a few minutes of play.

Hi Guys, thank you for posting this for us.

First of all, thank you all for trying out our game Bio Crisis, we hope you guys enjoyed it.

Second, about the "misleading" to shop option. I have to explain, there are 2 emergency buttons on the top and lower part of the screen when, 1, your hp is dangerous low 2, you are out of ammo and you are still tapping the fire button. If you do not have enough coins and yet you keep tapping them crazy, it will give you an option to go to the shop menu where you can buy ammos, upgrade your weapon and of course, iap.

Now, you might say this is very harsh, since it is a paid game and shouldn't be any iap in it. Well, if you play the game long enough (or not), the character's HP regains itself, so, it is more like a patient battle on each level, unless you like to rush to a group of enemies and start slashing, that's your style, of course, it will get you killed easily. I think the game has a pretty good balance on keeping your characters alive, the HP regain system is meant to give the player a moment of rest and restore your HP and fight again, the instant heal and instant reload is for extreme players who do not believe in waiting. There's always a price to pay if you keep standing up and firing at groups and groups of enemies..right?

A close counter knife strike will prevent an enemy from firing at you, so even if you low on ammo and do not wish to buy them, it is still possible to roll and slash and roll slash again, you just have to time yourself.

But nonetheless, we really appreciate everybody's supports, please do give us your thoughts and we will try to do our best to adjust the game, in the end, if you guys aren't happy, we will knock ourselves in the head for disappointing you guys.
