Hey, thanks for posting!

Yeah, I just finished a couple of levels. Need to play a bit more before saying if it's any good but I should point out there's a MASSIVE in-app download for the rest of the game. It clocks in at 1.4 GB.

The IAPs are 4 or 5 pets that you help you collect coins and stuff. They're a dollar each. It's not bad and I think that's fair IAP, but obviously had I known the game would be so massive, I wouldn't have bought it. >_>

Oh, hold up...misunderstood your previous statement. The download isn't an IAP (I mean, obviously you don't buy it), it's just like with Leo's Fortune, except like 10 times bigger.

Planning a trip to Europe this December has tightened my spending habits. This normally would have been and insta buy... Kind of want to see a video or something because it looks intriguing.

Ok, now this looks really cool. Downloading now. I'll leave some imps later on today after I dig into it.

BTW: Thes guys did Third Eye Crime and Spirefall, so the quality "should" be there in this game too.
