So how does the IAP work? I think I read a while back that Rocket Patrol was going to have paid expansions.

Yes, iPad only. We wanted to make a great experience on the iPad first. We do have an iPhone version in the works though.

You can play the game for free without ever encountering any IAP, perhaps that's awful for us money wise but it is good for the game. The IAP in there adds a "full version" of the game that unlocks two additional cards (with more coming), stars which let you swap your entire hand instead of discarding a single card in a turn, a star doubler, and infinite stars in case you get fed up with the concept of stars.

So if there's more cards coming in future does the full unlock include them or will they be extra iap further down the line?
Just wondering its only 69p and I'll be picking it up in a minute anyway.

I think we'll stick with the one full unlock for the game. That could get pretty daunting if we started to divide it up game balance wise.

Is there AI for this, or do you have to play online?
