It was the end of my day, so I was heading home... But I will definitely answer any questions you have about the system. There was concerns about the balance, and I answered that our main priority is that our players enjoy our game, so we made sure the balance was fair. Well be updating the game with new levels, missions and items every 4 weeks, and these new levels will be free. Throw any question at me about the game, and I'll be more than happy to answer! And also, I'm a her, not a him.

We worked hard to make sure the iAPs and freemium is balanced and fair. Like I said before, we will have new levels, missions and campaigns updated regularly, but those will also be free! We are open to criticism though, so if there's something you don't like, or you feel is restrictive, please let us know once you play it!

Honestly, with the game being free there is not much need. Normally I am more concerned to find out beforehand for games that charge up front as well, obviously. In this case I will just download the game and make up my own mind. It just seems to me like if you had no concerns about negative response to the way IAP is implemented here, you likely would have been eager to spell it out. By all means, do so; it would be most welcome.

I too am not liking the decision to go freemium even though I don't know how bad it will be....

...but then I saw this is the first in the Chop Chop series that apparently doesn't support the 3GS. So guess it doesn't matter to me now

Will be interested to hear others impressions though.

Trust me. I'd LOVE to get one, but just isn't in the cards right now. I think I will be able upgrade my phone sometime in the Spring though.

My wife would have my head if she really even knew how much I spend on iOS games, but a new device is a bit harder to sneak by.

I was happy enough to get an upgrade to a 3GS. At least, I can play most games. (Probably not for long though...) I try to keep my whining to a minimum on these threads though as I know it gets annoying.

The only game I've really, really wanted that I couldn't play yet was ARC Squadron.

Anyway, sorry for derailing. This game looks like it could be pretty nice as well.

That Stuttering appears usually when the Game is teaching you something or is reloading after a teaching Sequenz. Specially if you were just in the Middle of Jump and then one of those Automatic Scene loads up/finish you are haning in the air for a few Seconds till you are again able to play the Game.
