What Glu games do you guys like? Is there some good ones that arent so hard on the IAP thing?

I am all the way to tournament 5 on B&G2 is that kind of far with no IAP?

You can get far in samurai vs zombie without iaps and also zombie HQ. I do love most of their games and also wish they made freemium games

I love Glu Games. But what breaks my heart are the games with excruciating IAP. My finest example is Blood and Glory II.

You're not alone on that one. No matter how much grinding I did, the difficulty curve combined with the IAP wall and I just couldn't get past a certain stage no matter how hard or how long I tried. With my measly sword I had to take down enemies with ridiculous HP and that could destroy me and crush my shield with one swipe. If I remember correctly, it was around stage 15, maybe? Can't remember for sure, it was probably one third or one half of the entire game.

But there are others that I still have on my phone to this day. Lil' Kingdom is one of them. My girlfriend and I can vouche for that game because it's IAP wall isn't set so high compared to their other games.

Contract Killer:Zombies and Contract Killer: Zombies 2 are pretty good as well. I own both non zombie CKs as well, but I prefer the zombie ones. I played CK:Z, but replaced it with CK:Z 2 when it came out and so far it seems pretty well balanced for me.

Tavern Quest is also pretty well balanced. A lot of their management style games are pretty forgiving with the currency.

I have many more Glu Games, but haven't played them that much.

Their games ARE freemium. Do you know what freemium means?

And to Bramblett: those games came out 2008-2009 or 10 (not sure about Glyder 2).

EDIT:Zombie HQ isn't Glu. To bad I deleted it before any updates...I had nearly everything in the game, an bajillions of premium currency without using iaps. But therein lies the problem with any game that uses purchasable currency: you usually can't back your game up properly and if you need to delete one to make room, it's effectively unplayable again.

Thanks for the response! I am starting to get stuck on contract killer 2 now... Non zombie one.

Blood and glory 1+2 are fun to play for 30 min to one hour, then you either hit the paywall or get bored. Well worth trying I guess, but waste of disk space to keep on for long.

A couple of their games have gone paid recently, odd.

One of the first games I tried on my first iPod touch back in 2010/2011 was Gin Bros. grinder and did a bunch of those free premium currency deals and ended with the best armor set. Eventually I got so bored with the game cause I was too over powered. Still..when I was up for mindless fun, I'd used to fire up gun bros for a few rounds.
