App description: Tokyo Game Show "Best Indie" Nominee, created by former developers of SEGA, Square Enix and Capcom, X-Tactics ("Cross-Tactics") is a full blown Tactical JRPG, with no timers or paid healing, that mettles your tactics and strategy skill. Combined with GPS-based real world weather and other small easter eggs, every day provides a different challenge!

X-Tactics is an episodic Tactical RPG updated weekly, which combines turn-based tactical gameplay with an original fighting game inspired puzzle/command skill input system, and team mechanics to create a new style of fast paced, yet turn-based, strategic gameplay.

In a world, similar to our own, but one where top-secret government agencies and secret societies, maintain the peace and world order by manipulating the truth, news and history. You are in charge of the 7th branch of X-12, one of the most influential secret organizations in the world, commanding a ragtag cast of secret agents, adventurers, and treasure hunters, and it is you job to keep the Truth behind the many Conspiracies, Paranormal Activity, Aliens and Cryptids under control so the masses can continue in peace with their daily routine.

- Free to play as much as you want! No stamina or waiting on silly timers!
- An original RPG made by former developers of SEGA, Square Enix and Capcom.
- Turn-based tactical game with real time puzzle & fighting game elements.
- In-game battlefield conditions affected by real world location and time
- A wide cast of original characters each with their own special abilities and story arcs.
- Turf Wars mode where players challenge other players in PvP for control of real world Turf.

Our goal is to reward player engagement by allowing a large majority of content in X-Tactics to be accessed for FREE by simply playing the game! Accessing special missions, character upgrades, boosts, and items is done by buying them using the in-game Cash, earned primarily by defending your town through GPS missions. We also constantly add new Agent characters. Please note however that all Characters are balanced against each other, X-Tactics is not pay 2 win. Premium Agents exist to bring new combat mechanics to the table. X-Tactics prides it self in not being a stats game, our expert testers can clear practically all missions with Level 5 Agents and their sharp Tactical skills, and the proper weather conditions!
Also unlocking Premium Agents opens up their own unique missions and storylines. To purchase new agents we now use the X-Coin system, which allows players to pay to directly unlock new Agents anytime, or to login daily to accumulate enough X-Coins to unlock the Agents for free. However your Purchases will also remove ads and help us keep adding new content for everyone on a weekly basis.

First this game is well done and looks great.

And that's the good part.

So I had an issue buying the starter pack, at the time it said 500k cash and 100orb things. It only gave me 250k and 30 orbs. So I tried to contact them and they only give you their website, FB and Twitter. I tried through they're website from my iPad my phone and a computer but it was broken and wouldn't allow contact. I did get someone to answer on Twitter and after 2-3 days they resolved it and gave me 100 more orbs. So I ended up down 250k but up 30 orbs.

So I've been playing for a few days after this and notice I'm not getting the cash currency. You need it to upgrade your agency, buy items and play special missions which are 10k+.

So I'm back on Twitter and they send me to the website apparently they don't have an explanation how to earn cash in the game. It lists off 5 ways to earn cash a few were buy it, complete missions, do gps missions... I'm like oh shit I've done all that. I have not earned a single dollar from missions. So they say we're going to have an update on Thursday. But really what it was was new missions not really an update and I find that out late Friday night. I sent a DM on Twitter when it's almost Saturday cause nothing showed up in the App Store. And that's why I didn't see it is because they just "updated" some missions. Now they're saying you get lots of cash from gps secret tape missions. So I play a normal mission no reward(just to see) then I play a gps mission taking a photo of the the gps screen, the team screen and the victory screen. NO CASH. Then I'm like I found a "secret" video and after that screen it asks me if I want to watch it for $500. I'm sorry but if special missions are 10k+ then 500$ is NOT a lot of cash especially when you have to watch a video to get it.

So without paying money or grinding out ads there is no way to upgrade your agency, buy items or play special missions.

This is a game for whales.

I think I'm mostly pissed about being lied to but I regret spending any money on this.

It won't let me add a pic from my phone or I would show a snap of the website.
