Looks good, but ads with a paid app, not my style. Good luck though!

We have turned off the ads.

BTW - The reason we were thinking about including them is because the amount of piracy of our game has been very high. Within a few hours of us releasing our game, pirated versions appeared on multiple sites. We had 4 times as many players yesterday who stole the app vs. those who paid for it. The only way for us to attempt to recoup our costs on all of the piracy is to include some form of advertising. Our thought was that we could include a single ad at the end of a game as we felt this was the least intrusive way to do it. Regardless, the ad is now turned off.
