Looks good, but freemium and online only are 2 things that make me think twice when considering games.

I downloaded this this morning. It's actually pretty cool. The only downside is the timers. I think I was able to play for about 20mins before I was out of "energy". I think you get 1 "energy" every couple mins or you can of course buy some through IAP. It's still a fun game.

Will be giving this a try.

I play Please Stay Calm, made by the same devs and while it's a freemium with iAP currency, it's one of the kind of games that gives that currency free though gameplay so purchasing is not the only way to get it. Hope this game works the same.

This is one of those games that devolve into "Add me" spam isn't it?
