Good game. It always bugs me, that I pay for a game, and then the dev makes it free. Free I can handle, but now it has ads.

I agree with you.
I think it borders on illegal. 'Bait and Switch'
Bottom line is, you paid for one thing and it switched to another. I know it would never happen, but developers should refund the purchase to anyone who requests it unless they've had the app for over a year.

I'll be leaving a 1 star review for this

Annoyingly i like the game but i dont want to update this (i paid for it), now i'll have a red (1) next to my updates forever unless i update this.

Granted when a game doesnt sell as well anymore i can see kinda why a dev does this, but for someone like me who buys games asap (so the dev gets more money) and bleats on to people about buying games straight away to help devs, this is just a kick in the teeth

I'll be leaving a 1 star review on the App store and i'll contact Apple to try and get my money back as its the principle of it. Any further games from this dev i wont be supporting, i dont want to see crappy ad's on this app i've bought

Like i say this game is actually really good, it was in my favourite platform game folder but now i'm tempted to delete it

Edited - Thanks Dev, Sorry for going over the top above its just one of my favourite platformers and i would hate to play it with an ad banner at the top or something

I am sorry, I didn't think it thru. I will make the game back to paid again and without ads, and also I will create new app with ads.

Wow, great response by the developer. Love platformers and will be getting it ASAP (currently isn't available because the App Store tells me it is being modified).
