This has apparently been in soft launch since 2014... that's a LOT of polishing

I always loved 10tons games. From the release of the App Store to my years on BlackBerry. The last few releases have been a bit too F2P for my tastes though. Hopefully this will have a premium option or a better F2P model. Looks rad.

Oops, already burnt my lives...

It's been a while since i played an educational/stay in touch wordgame, that's why i prefer games where possible words get highlighted. This way i can try to score some Hail Mary's in the end, at least, though i rather have enough time to look up my dictionary here and there.

Not english native, time pressure and life system is simply too fast, too lethal for me. Here is so much stuff to buy/popping up, please tell me i missed the get-rid-of-lives iap.

I've only played the first five stages. Early impression here is this is fun.

I like how I can quickly tap in the words as I find them. There's various weapons, armor, and hats to earn and upgrade.

As expected there's IAP for coins. I do see a couple non-consumable items for 50% more monster gold and a 2nd timer chest with goodies.

The IAPs seem tame but I wasn't able to see a permanent IAP for the timers (lives)... Is there anything that would counter that, maybe in later levels?

Wondering the same thing. That's the IAP I'd buy.

So far the "refill lives" IAP is 98 cents to refill once, which is silly. You'd be shelling out 1 or more dollars a day. This isn't Clash Royale, people.

Played a bit more but I couldn't see any permanent IAP to remove the timers. I was going to buy the golden boots + 2nd bag IAPs since they are permanent but decided against it, I won't invest in a game with timers if you can't get rid of them. Too bad because the core game is actually interesting, good luck to those who continue.
