Bombcats has been out for quite some time now in the appstore. But the freemium version of the game didn't work that well (it was way too generous) and they are trying to relaunch the game with this special edition.

Radiangames deserve success with this one because it's a fantastic arcade game!

Played the heck out of the free version. Bought some IAP to enable old school mode and support one of my favourite app store devs. I hope this does well, it really deserves to.

Yes, it's pretty much the same as the Android version. No IAP and a lot more fun because you're always unlocking new stuff. Also the progression is a little different than the original (you can now choose Time Trial or Marathon to advance to new levels).

When you say "pretty much the same", is there anything in the Android version to warrant the extra dollar (not that it wouldn't be worth $1.99 anyway)? Have been thinking of getting this for a while and just trying to decide which version to get.

If we've got the freemium version, and have bought the gem doubler and unlimited moves IAP's... is there any reason to purchase this one aside from just supporting the devs?

The free version was ridiculously generous and easy to finish without spending any money, so... has it been nerfed in order to make this version seem more attractive?

No, there's no real reason if you've bought those.

Here are the major changes:
* You now can choose to do Marathon or Time Trials to advance through the game (instead of Time Trials always required and Marathons optional).
* Some power/boost unlocks happen a bit sooner.
* No IAP at all (and no moves limit).
* Everything--upgrades, costumes, boosts, and powers--costs fewer gems (usually 5-10 times less).
* You can spend 500 gems to skip a level (instead of IAP).
* You get 5 attempts per challenge (instead of 3).
* Gems are worth 10/25 (instead of 5/20).

There are some other subtle changes that I'm sure I'm forgetting.

In terms of actual levels, everything's the same. No nerfing in either version.

The recent 1.11 update had some technical fixes (mostly to reduce download and especially installed size) that are also in the SE version.
