WOW...this has come a long way. Great job guys. Pretty deep for a one finger game...lots of moves to do.

How do I get rid of energy? Does buying any of the IAP's disable the forced ads and get rid of the energy?

Unfortunately there's no way to get rid of the energy system. Pretty much my only gripe with the game, everything else is full on 5 stars.

Also in case people don't notice, while they've done an amazing job making the game fully playable with one hand, it also supports landscape and I actually far prefer playing it that way using two hands.

That is a huge disappointment and agree.

I get ads, but will never understand an energy system that doesn't at least offer an option to turn it "premium."

@Lucky Kat - would you ever consider offering an IAP to get rid of it?

No, we're not.

It might sound strange from a player's perspective, but we don't want players to play too long since you'll get tired of it too soon. We've compared it with eating a cake - it's much nicer to eat some slices every day than eating the whole cake at one go and feel sick of it.

Exactly right if you’re able to breeze through the game in one session you’ll complain it’s too short

In this way you get short bursts of fun but you know what they say about not pleasing everyone

Energy systems for games rock, you didn’t know that haha it’s a free game it’s expected guys if it was premium and had an energy system then a gripe would be legit
But I will say again energy systems in games rock and are so much fun Said no one ever
I’m a premium guy but I will give this one a try since I love the old 90s beat em ups

I can tell you why developers don't do this, from personal experience - F2P and premium economies cannot coexist, because they each have downstream effects on the game design and balance. Providing the option to turn off energy simply negates the refill value proposition for everyone, not just the premium players. And honestly, the number of players who are turned off is dwarfed by the people who don't care. Premium mobile gamers are an endangered species.

And yes, I know that some games have provided this option. I daresay that if you looked at the data they're collecting from players that they've shot themselves in the foot, especially considering player expectations for continuous game updates.

Happy to talk to you further about it on DM...I've been working in games since the days of the SNES and I've seen the industry evolve multiple times. Beside, I know this response is just going to get moved to the "i hate freemium" thread anyway.

Well I have always made purchases in previous lucky Kat games. I always made the premium purchase. I'll have to pass on this one. I am not paying to remove ads to them have an energy bar. It just ruins things for me. Maybe next time lucky Kat will win me back. good luck.
