Really tempted to buy then I saw the Zynga symbol... To me it means "avoid like a plague". So not gonna get it till I make sure some stuffs.
Do you need to wait 5 hours to level up?
3 hours to make a weapon?
Or 10 hours to rest your character?
Of course you can make all that go faster by paying 60 bucks.
Standard Zynga tm stuff.

If even a tiny bit of that waiting crap exist, Im so not buying this crap.

Hey, no blasphemy with ICO...

Lol, Hodapp just tweeted relief.

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.

I also have a feeling it's gonna be this way. I already read the TA preview that gems are purchased as IAPs. And we are already paying the initial 7 bucks. Not only is Phospher borrowing design cues from Infinity Blade but seems like Zynga is continuing its IAP footsteps and pricing. Too bad, as a big Zelda fan, I was actually looking forward to this. I just hope the IAP mechanics for this game is not as bad as I suspect.

Well thank god it's not developed by Zynga. Who knows how messed up their IAP would be. These coin/gem/etc based IAP systems need to be destroyed and forgotten forever and I almost never buy games anymore that has them. I hope impressions here show they're completely unnecessary.
