Why would you charge 5 dollars for your game and then have in app purchases?

I hope this does not have timers or consumables that need to be bought.

There are no timers in the game - it's not that kind of game. The entire game is designed to be played without making any additional purchases. It mentions this in the App description.

The IAPs are there for things like getting extra maps, and for players that want to go nuts on making themselves super powered early on. This kind of thing is a tough decision for a developer. I considered disabling the optional purchases just to avoid putting people off like yourself. Past experience on other games pushed me to include them though.

I wish you luck. Looks like it might be a good game.

Question though, how does the game (multi-player) stay balanced if some people purchase an iap to make themselves super powered early on and others do not?

Thank you.

Multiplayer mode doesn't allow you to do that. Warlocks have their spells and strengths randomly distributed at the start of a battle to keep it fair. It's not possible to 'pay to win'.

Thank you so much for giving an answer without being offended.
'Pay to win' is just so frustrating, especially to my (and others') foster kids who most times, don't even have the ability to earn a dollar.

One of my kiddos is saving to purchase this game and now I feel comfortable telling him to go for it.

Good luck to you.

Please know that people are far more likely to pay the price of admission if they can view a gameplay video; not merely a 30-second trailer.
