The Dutch translation on this is absolutely awful. It's like it has been put through an online translator. Why do any translation at all for Dutch? If you cannot afford to pay for a proper translation, just keep it in English. An example for the Dutch people here: "Herleve gebruik maken van harten om een tweede kans te krijgen". In English that would be something like "reliving making use of hearts for getting a second chance" It just doesn't make any sense.

I am really enjoying this, but predictably the rate of progression is really slow. You have to buy coins or grind forever.

I am glad I waited for it to go free. Chillingo seems to be training us to do that for their games.

Same here. I'm enjoying it a lot. As I saw that it costs 10.000 coins to unlock the first level 1 power-up I was about to delete it, but then I realised that the power-ups can also be unlocked by completing missions.. Thank god. And you get 2500 coins each for tapping the fb and twitter link

Always nice to pick up a Chillingo title. Hopefully it doesn't end up being a short-term pleasure.

Yeah, and ok game better than the other chillingo games I got this week for free like jar in a bar, or endless road. But it sure does smell like a freemium title to me.
