Hi Habakuk,

IAP, let me just say it wasn't something I wanted to add. That's why the game is completely playable without making a purchase. They act more like 'cheats' or permanent upgrades. They do not interfere with the normal scoreboards as I separated the IAP scores from the non IAP ones. You can also turn them off from the settings menu too.

However, I have to feed my children and pay the mortgage, so in they went. To say that they weren't worth the effort would be an understatement the ratio of purchases is less than 0.02% of those downloading and playing for free... So future updates are unlikely to happen at any pace from now, Asteroid 2012 was created as a hobby indie game for my youngest son. Without further investment from players then development is basically done and no new features will be added.

I hope you don't mind me mentioning this, I just wanted to air my reasons for adding them into the game.

Regards,

M Muller

Thanks, M Muller, for your explanations. So your game is recommended! Anyway I'd wish devs would add them in the official main description of the app @ iTunes/iOS App Store.
