Ok!

So I started playing. I'm using the iPhone 6 running iOS 9.2.1

One small but serious issue. There's needs to be increased sensitivity or a slider with variable sensitivity for the slider on the left. If I start from the center and slide all the way up, the ship goes to the top of the screen. That seems ok, however, if I start from the center and slide all the way to the bottom of the screen the ship stops no where close to the bottom of the screen! I have to slide a SECOND time to get the ship to the bottom.

This is effecting my gameplay and making it difficult to play effectively.

EDIT- even with the sensitivity I've played through the first boss. Wow. I really like this game. Nice job dev. That first boss was pretty cool.

Thanks for the great feedback, I will definitely look into implementing a sensitivity slider for an update.
Glad you liked the Boss!

The original took me by storm. Simple, yet very challenging and addicting. Easy for me to give this one a try...

After re-installing the game twice, with ad-blocker on and off, still no support possible. It hangs on the loading screen forever. Iphone 5s, version 8.4.1.

Same here.

I went to purchase the game and I can't. It's simply loading forever. I can't even view my unlocks. I cannot do anything.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled as well.

iPhone 6 running iOS 9.2.1

Ads work fine. But no way can I purchase the game.

Looks cool. I just discovered his Match the Deck Poker, which is really good!
All it needs is visual color theme options.

I have been investigating the loading forever, and it seems to be that the inapp purchases can't initialise, from some research I have done apparently it can be because the inapp purchases aren't indexed across all the app stores (apparently this can take 24 hours). Sorry for the inconvenience. According to others who had a similar problem the inapp purchases started working around 24 hours after release. I keep and eye on it and keep you updated. Thanks for Playing!

I'll keep trying. Is it tied to game center in anyway?

It looks like the inapp purchases have propagated and are now working. So you can now view your unlocks, and remove the ads if you are so inclined
