This game was ruined by a horrible IAP model. Because of the way they destroyed the original, I can't bring myself to ever buy the sequel. And the developer doesn't do itself any favors with their bot that runs through TA every once in awhile.

This used to be one of my favorite games, but it has become money pit that sucks money from your wallet, esp. If you plan on progressing

You spoilsports!!!
Everyone knows IAP games are FUN FUN FUN!
In fact, the most fun is getting the bill for $40 on a horrible game and realizing you've been made a fool of!

I actually bought the sequel before I found out about the iAPs; I only got this one, the original, when it went free for a day early this year. Personally, I don't find THIS game to be unplayable to be competitive, at least if you get as addicted to simple games as I do. With just the gold balls I've gotten from the missions and beating people down, I've assembled a kit that beats nearly all of the purchasable outfits, and unlike HRB2, uniform collections don't give you special powerups.

There is no way I could have over 70 power in HRB2 without spending money, but I do in HB. And, not to brag, but except when there are network issues (which is often) I don't need much more contact than I have (low 30s) since I'm just that damn good.

I've spent nothing on this game yet I'm probably about 50/50 in wins/losses against players ranked in the top 5000. That's not bad, considering there are at least 500k registered players.
