GREAT little game. Excellent controls and very enjoyable.

However, I have purchased 2 bullet upgrades (heavy and spearhead), but I can't equip them! I don't know if there is some condition that needs to be fulfilled first, or if it is a bug. It seems I can only equip the basic bullet at this stage.

(For anyone reading, this is about in-game purchases, not in-app purchases. I haven't found any trace of IAP).
