Default [CA Soft Launch] Qix Galaxy (by zGames)

Quote:
CA Release info:

The Game is out in Canada. Size of the app is 77.7 MB.

Price in NZ is Free.

Requirements:

Requires iOS 4.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
Qix Galaxy is a Sci-fi Adventure Arcade.
Based on the classic Qix game by TAITO.

Captain Gordon finds himself on a super-modern research spaceship NGC-123 in a galaxy far far away.
He is on a mission with very peaceful goals: mapping the galaxy region.
However he faces the unknown plasma force in every region he visits.

Nevertheless he continues his mission of mapping the area while avoiding the force. In doing so, he notices the region is restored and the plasma avoids the regions he's mapped. Something about his propulsion system is immune to these energy forces, later known as QIX, and drives it away. Once he maps enough of the first region, the QIX is essentially forced to leave the area.

The planets captured by the energy clots are sending SOS signals and Captain Gordon is their last hope.
Gordon decides he will free them all and clear the mysterious QIX from the galaxy.
His spaceship AI, Aida, helps him to fulfill this brave mission and save the planets.

Key features:
- Numerous challenging levels and missions
- Space exploration - see picturesque planets, alien enemies and galaxy regions
- Dozens of ship equipment options
- Unexpected story twists
- Play with your friends and compete for leadership

Yeah, seems like nobody wants to make 99 cent games anymore. Too bad.

-No Gamecentre.
-Ads between levels (not sure if disabled by IAP).
-Lives on timers. 5 by default. 1 restores every 10 minutes.
-Multiple Currencies.
That said. It's not a bad game and in the early going IAP doesn't seem neccissary. There are a lot of upgrades to buy for your ship though and at some point I assume your ability to upgrade will not keep pace with increasing difficulty.
Some people will like the game, I'm sure. Others will be put off by the pay model.

This is probably my favorite genre of games. That said, no GameCenter all but kills it for me and a soft launch to boot. Ugh.
