I tend to like Chillingo published games, even when they commonly have IAP. I'll give this one a dl and check it out.

I am afraid to destroy those hopes. Couldn't win the first level on "normal". The two bosses in last wave #30 don't care about all my perfectly placed and upgraded turrets. Seems I need a better shooter gun. But it costs 12,000 and I've got only 10,500 at the end. So I need to play that level once more, then buy the gun, and then I'll get some stars on the third attempt maybe. Sounds like heavy grinding. Or maybe better start with "easy".

Bummer. Pretty fun to play and with some new ideas, but…

Edit: You should indeed better start on "easy". Played it for 90 min now and it seems that IAPs aren't that bad as I thought before. Details later in this thread and here.

Dang. That's always how it is though, right? Iap killing what could be great. I'm still going to give it a go.

I'm still going to check it out. It's pretty rare for me not to at least have some fun with what Chillingo publishes. If there is a pay wall I can't work around then I'll give up and move on.

Pretty much the wise thing to do. It's free after all.
