The Story of Major Magnet

With an insanely funny set of characters, including loyal sidekick Gus the Guinea Pig, Major Magnet's off to save the world from Colonel Lastin, without even realizing it. Sometimes a hero can come from anyone, especially if they have a magnet to help them out. All he wants is his yellow cape back!

Gone are the days of playing a game where you just run around, stomping on mushrooms this is magnetic gameplay! Tap a magnet, swing and shoot the Major to race through each level. It's as innovative as it sounds and incredibly fun to master.

Alright, guys...before anyone starts getting pissed off that the Major Magnet that was (still is, perhaps?) on the App Store was never updated to be universal, abandoned, etc. etc. etc. you'll notice this new version is under a new publisher...the developers themselves. I'm assuming their deal with Iddiction ended a while ago (probably why they self-published the "Arcade" version of MM) and they had to take this route. Of course there are gonna be the handful of us (yeah, me included) who are gonna be irked they'll have to buy this all over again...but hey, it's universal now and it's still a fan-****ing-tastic game. If you haven't already checked this one out...do so: It's brilliant.

PS: Can we please not go the "BUT THEY SHOULD'VE MADE IT FREE FOR A WHILE!" route? Please? That only does much more harm than it does good, and these guys don't owe us anything.

PPS: Yeah, I decided to start a new thread instead of update the old one for that very reason and I'll probably end up deleting this post once this thread takes off.

It feels like they release this game for the fourth time now. There were bugs in the first version and they never fixed them. $2 and it's still full of IAP.

Edit: posted this before reading your text MC. But yeah.. I won't support this game. For anyone who haven't tried it yet, it's definitely a cool game, I hope it works on your device like it should.

It's a shame you feel that way, sink...but I understand. That said, the free-to-play Arcade version got a couple of bug fix updates, so it's too soon to say this if this won't be supported or not. Who knows, perhaps those bugs you speak about have already been fixed (do you mind telling me what they were? The game runs flawlessly on my iPhone 6).

Just to clarify, this is only the first time Major Magnet has been re-released.

Metalcasket: I don't know if you are still paying attention to this thread.

Although I have the old version (with ads & IAPs, etc) I was going to purchase this one. The version I have, it is $1.99. For a doubler and, to remove ads,

When I went to get this newer version, I see that there are iap's but, they are not listed. My question, what are the iap's and does this version have ads?
Thank you!
