A lot of people love their quirky games but despise their iapps, and they just might make more money making games that don't have so obvious of a paywall.
Yea their games are decent but iap is just bad.

This game may be good or not? I don't know because I rid it from my device soon after opening it. There are far FAR to many little buttons and menues to navigate around... Just seems really crowded and like junk.

No, it's not for hacking. It's a Korean thing (seriously). Probably makes it easier for them to take your money.

I hate that after saving up for an item / unit upgrade there's still a chance of failure - and the gold you used to pay will be wasted with nothing happening

So sad what happened to Gamevil.

They made some great iOS games over the years, and have much talent, but now their games are basically just an automatic ignore for me due to the IAP based designs.

Freemium and IAP are the devil.

More IAP bull from gamevil. I pretty much just ignore any releases from gamevil, gameloft, glu, zynga, and chillingo.
