Was a great game! I purchased this a while back and actually forgot I had it.

I don't recall it having more than half the levels locked, available through IAP and it being plagued by ads. Did that come with this update?

Yup. And it's not the pretty kind. Wait until you reach the shark levels. Full screen ads, no way to exit them unless you pay. Or wait for the countdown to reach zero.

That's some serious bull for someone who paid full price for this.

I think I still have the previous update in my iTunes. Looks like back to square one for me.

HeroCraft once again impresses me...

Too bad, because they actually make some decent games.

Well, I see why it has ads now. Creat Studios and i-Free were also involved in the development of Mushroom Wars. Anyone remember how they screwed over their users? Luckily, I think I got Magic Orbz on sale for a buck.

Too bad there's nothing we can do except spread the word about devs like this. They are the scum of the App Store. Apple should really do something about this but they still get their 30% regardless.

Haha, scum of the earth might be a bit harsh. But it's still a dick move nonetheless. I just hope the one I have in iTunes isn't already infected.
