Some villagers have started a new settlement and they've put you in charge. In Puzzle Craft you take control of an entire populace and must help them grow their settlement into a bustling city! To do this you will need to farm, mine, collect taxes, hire workers and more. Blending two forms of gameplay for the first time, Puzzle Craft is as unique as it is addicting.

We are very much looking forward to hear your thoughts on our new baby Puzzle Craft!

Thank you!
Out of curiosity, what exactly is the IAP?
Is it for things like unlocks or boosters, or is there a separate currency that can be spent to speed up events or purchase premium items?

Insta-pass. IAP. Fail!

Those of you who support, harm gamers everywhere.

Time for all gamers to demand to own, and control their purchases.

IAP ( in app purchases ) is just what you described you pay additional money for consumable items to help you like coins for example to buy in game items or unlock levels or additional level, personally I hate this strategy and sadly it's spreading these days in the app store

Uhm... did you read the thread? The dev said it's optional?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

ROFL! You should have checked Strive's post count.

You don't need to explain Strive what IAP's are. He knew about them while everyone else was still running around in diapers.... it's like explaining the bible to a catholic monk

He wants to know the kind of IAPs, the type (consumables / unlocks / in-game money, or others).

You seriously believe that!? There are always exceptions. Hopefully this game is one of them.

lol thanks Vovin, I laughed pretty hard when I read that.

I was just trying to tactfully ask the developer to give us an honest answer on the nature of the IAP's without offending their decisions in monetizing their game.
