Is this portrait mode only? Not a big fan of them on an iPad.

Was great until I realized that the power ups are all IAP! 99 cents each for 6 uses! Consumable IAP? VERY disappointing. You can't even earn anything in game in order to get the power ups. I could see grinding for points or coins or something but nope - pure purchases. At least give the player the choice!

This seems to happen time and time again so I am going to be very slow to hit the buy button in the future until I get to see if IAP pop up on the app screen or some game impressions. MANY great games are skewed to getting this sort of IAP and on a paid game.

Wow. Ridiculous. I may get this if it goes on sale and is free, but I'm not even sure I'll waste my time on a game like this..

Devs, I don't know how sales are, but considering the staleness of this thread, why not update to at least add the ability to grind for the power ups or similar? I wouldn’t doubt it if your consumable IAP approach has left a bitter taste in many enthusiast’s mouths and are not purchasing as a result. This is a shame as it certainly looks like fun, but there is no way I am buying under this model.
