Gameloft IAP Discussion


The IAP in this game works like most other games in that you buy it once, and can always unlock it later using your iTunes account information. Nothing is consumable at all. The game is free to download, but to play any more than the demo you need to pay the normal Gameloft price to access the rest of the game.

It changes nothing for you, i'm sure it will be the same price (5-6.99 as usual). The only thing is now there's a better anti piracy method but the game will appear on the "free" tab of the appstore and well we all know how much stars the games have...

It says "Buy full game for $9.99" from within game, but not sure what currency that refers to.

I'm playing it on 2x on the ipad and theres a slight flickering which I find distracting.

When you press the mount/dismount horse button, the horse just magically appears!

Interesting move, it won't stop piracy though. Like at all.

Not sure if I'll get this one, doesn't look like I'll like it, plus I don't have much faith in GL.

So it's 6.99-7.99 in USD not surprising but thanks for the info! About the horse i'm not surprised either, you would be tired of the animation after a while if he came from somewhere else...

Interesting, I wonder if the free+IAP is going to become standard for Gameloft.
