Yes. And it keeps on asking for location. Have a look at the "real" screenshot. What a pity, because the game itself would be fun.

Hi!

Thanks for trying out Bankshot! Yes, the game has ads but it shouldn't keep on asking you for your location if you refuse. How many times and how often does it keep asking you?

I'll look into this as well. I don't want the ads to actually be intrusive to the gameplay.

But, I'm glad you think the game is good!

Three or four times.

Yeah. Nice casual skills game. Very good and believable physics. Some kind of pocket billiard.

Bankshot is super fun - yes it has ads but it doesn't really get in the way. And they're just ads for other Endloop Inc games and apps, no biggy.

Anyhow, I'm terrible at this game and I feel bad because with OpenFeint, everyone can see how bad I really am...

And for free, the price is definitely right.

EDIT: Whoops, just noticed there are other kinds of ads on there - not just Endloop apps and games. My bad!

We've disabled the location requester from our ads this morning however OpenFeint 2.4 will still ask for location upon startup. This is for it's location-based high scores feature.

We added 'Ad supported' to our app description and added a screenshot w/ an ad in it, just so there's no confusion.

Thanks for trying out our game!

Well this is odd. Did someone delete the Bankshot thread I made yesterday?
