Looks pretty cool. How intrusive is the IAP? Is it just for cheating or is it necessary to progress? Also the reviews say the game is pretty buggy... any feedback on that? Either way, I like the retro vibe I'm feeling form it... so I'm installing. But if it's super bad on the IAP then I'd like a heads up before I invest time into playing.

The iap isn't bad at all but the game is buggy. It hasn't been updated in a really long time either. The dev needs to fix the bugs and stuff before he worries about price drops

I remember a lot of buzz about this game leading up to its release, but then a backlash of sorts when a lot of issues presented themselves. Have these been worked out? Or is this still held back by problems?

Sadly no,updated only once after release then left to rot since July last year,still many bugs and often doesnt work.

A real shame if you ask me.

Maybe an update is pending? A lot of devs seem to do price drops right before a bigi update. Guess I'll hold onto this a week or so and see.

Agreed 100%. It wouldn't sting so badly if this game wasn't so terrifyingly rife with possibility... but yeah.

Left to rot, while continuing to build upon a frustrated base of users, and I'm guessing the newest batch of freeby seekers is just going to add to the din...
