* The basic game also comes with the powers and costume of the first demon, Asmodeus.

At the start of the game, you fight as Serenity herself, without any possessing demons. You can unlock the first demon, Asmodeus, by defeating him. Once unlocked, Asmodeus is available to possess Serenity. Her looks, personality, parameters, and other abilities will change based on the possessing demon, as will the game's music. After the first demon, you can make a pact with additional demons by defeating them. Once a pact is in place, you have the option of having the demon possess Serenity for a small fee.

Story

Serenity arrives to finds she barely recognizes the hospital anymore. Stepping warily into the shattered ruins, she meets a talking teddy bear.

Introducing himself as David, the talking teddy bear claims to have once been human, but when Serenity asks him about her fathers whereabouts, countless demons suddenly appear.

Just before her father disappeared, he had sent a mysterious app to her smartphone.

Known as the Demons' Score, the app is a powerful program that enables her to take control of demons that possess her body.

They never will. It's up to the devs of an app to incorporate Game Center/Openfeint support.

Same here. I don't really care about leaderboards, achievements and such unless I'm competing online.

Anyway I'm itching to tap the buy button. Should I or should I not?

16 I guess, that's the number that appears when I enter 'free mode' but except for the first three the rest is locked because I only played the beginning.

Really digging the gfx and cinematics, gameplay reminds me of Cytus with different graphics since you're 'fighting'. I'm not sure it was a good purchase for this price because unlike Cytus, the music is all 'Castlevania-like' (as you can see in Sanuku's videos), so not a lot of beat, no catchy songs. IMHO of course.

^ Yeah... The music they used pretty much just revolved around and complemented the "shooter" part of the game. Im enjoying it though, so no complaints from me.

I just randomly chose Sanuku's "Episode 7" and it appears you're in the same area as the first video. Is the entire game similar? :/

OKAY - Now I'm bothered and found out why this is 'just' 6.99.

See this in the game's description?

'• Once you complete a stage in Story mode, you can purchase the powers of boss demons that you defeated.'

Well, you know the 'hot chick' costume in the App Store screenies and the trailer? You can use it after you beat the first boss (Sanuku's episode 2 video). Gives you more def and exp than the 'poor girl' costume you begin with, you get it for free after beating him.

BUT - I beat the second boss (Sanuku's episode 4 video, funky music, funny battle with fun dialogue too, this game has great production values) and it showed I could use another costume after beating him. When I tap 'sign pact' to use this new costume, it accesses the Store and asks if I want to buy the costume for 2.99.

There are 11 costumes - you get the first two ones (the starting one and the hot chick one from the screenshots) for free, and it seems the others are 2.99 a pop. Really sad. I wouldn't mind having the costumes for free even for purely cosmetic reasons.

EDIT: Screenshots (iPad 2):

This is the costume I got from beating the second boss:



Now, if I tap 'Sign Pact':



And as you can see, since I haven't beat the next boss, the fourth costume (you can see the dots below) is locked for me, so seems like you have to both beat the boss and PAY 2.99 to use the costume:
