is this another wait to get resources type game, that's pushed towards IAP to speed it up? or is it more like simcity?

Please don't be a IAP greed machine.

This game looks just like what I like. But I will refuse to buy it if it has heavy IAP pushes. I have all the farm frenzys and love them. I hope this game is like those. But the 99 cent price tag has me thinking it's a IAP nightmare. I really hope not. If so..... Then shame on them for taking what looks to be a great game from a great game maker and making it it into a money pit for people wanting to play a good game on a PHONE. If it doesn't have IAP I will buy it.

Alawar has yet to fail me(on iOS), hopefully it's not IAP driven.

For those on the fence, there's plenty of free demo's out there for the PC and most likely the Mac too, it's what I'm doing atm, just to see how the game is.

/edit Played the demo till my free 1 hour ran out, it's basically a good old fashioned time/resource management game, with a bit of careful planning on how you build your structures. Can't really see any way they'd be able to squeeze in any IAP into this, the game structure just doesn't really allow for it.

Was reasonably fun at least.

There is none......

For those that asked there is NO IAP that i can see at all, as the other poster said its time/resource management game as simply as that. Unless there are in the later levels

Alawar games do not have IAP (with the possible exception of full game unlock)

So if this game isn't a time-sink IAP vacuum, anyone care to elaborate why it's got 1 star on here? Just bad gameplay??
