This game is way way way too heavy on IAP.

Each of the biographies are 500 Credz x 19 = 9500

Then you need another 10-15K just to unlock that character's puck and paddle.

We are talking about 25-30K of Credz when each game nets you 100 Credz and thats with a fukcin coin doubler

The game is not easy either, so getting a perfect game is very difficult. Whoever said they can get 10,000 Credz in 10 minutes is on drugs and Id like to get some of them please

Im going to continue to grind until I get a better paddle. I wonder how many Credz are given out by the special Provential Paddle or whatever. Has anyone bought that paddle? Maybe the guy that got 10k per 10 minutes.

Mr Greed, you can also earn Credz by banking completed missions as well as playing the side game by the No No No dude. It does not take very long to save enough to buy a good upgrade.

Yes, this is actually my only problem with the prices on upgrades, that there are quite a lot of biographies (and they increase in price at higher floors), and that once you've bought them all, you also need both paddle and puck to use the special skills. But then, perhaps gaining access to the personas of opponents (both their passive bonuses and drawbacks, accessible through the top entry on their biography page, plus their special skills) is worth three times the expensive paddles and pucks.

I didn't realize 3-0 would end the game. Back to practicing!

EDIT: Just beat Furry 5:0 but the game didn't end at 3:0. Is that right? Maybe you meant win by 3?
That ruleset only applies to the bet mode, so you hafta play the little dude through the bet button (Since bet is won by leading by three points, 3-0 will end the mach.)

I hope so...I had the EGA pc version...'twas ok. The black and white Maxintosh version rocked, though. Probably because I played the PC game with a keyboard instead of a mouse.

I bought the coin doubler, I'm on the second floor at the moment. Playing the Asian guy, with bet, gets me 500 Credz per match. I haven't bought any paddles yet. The game is a little too easy, if anything.

The game plays well and looks great! To me, though, too many other things are added in like the biographies and too much chat. Would like to just get right to the game play. The card game is all right so you can get more coins, etc. The actual air hockey AI is harder than I expected, but I like that. Online multiplayer would really help this go through the roof IMO, though.
