There're tons of HELL IAP in there! Haha!

Just kidding, there's IAP, but, they're all and completely optional!

Cheers!!

I make it a habit to avoid any game with two different types of currency.

I am sick of the justification "but it's completely optional".

So is refusing open heart surgery. Still, if the need ever arose I think I'm going to feel pressed to go along with it.

Either an app has IAP or not. There is no grey area here. They either designed the game around it in order to bleed money from us, or they made it to be enjoyed.

That is one of the big red flags, isn't it? Shows right off that they carbon copied the same freemium model perfected by companies like Zynga and took a "me too" approach to game design. It's shameful.

Ditto! Unless the iap is donate to the dev then yeah, otherwise all iaps are out to suck your money.

I hate the way Freemium titles are taking over the app store.

Personally I'd prefer to buy something and have no iaps, even if it was 2-10.

Don't worry about that, sure that you can enjoy playing our game without using IAP if you don't like.

Cheers.

You guys do realize this is a free game don't you? To be honest, I'd rather buy a game outright just like the next guy but at least Antony is releasing this free instead of bilking the early buyers by going freemium later like a certain 'Forsaken' developer did. And yeah, after playing it myself, it is truly optional and you don't hit a wall where iap's are necessary. You say you'd rather have a donate to developer iap, I think thats what this is. So it's a free game, either buy it and try it and post your opinions or stop bouncing from one freemium thread to the other whining about it. Okay?
