I don't think this is one of those games where you'll never be able to make any reasonable progress without it. Frankly, I think it's a crime that they are giving away something that is this unique, fun, and slickly produced. But I understand they are just trying to make a living.
Heck I was enjoying this so much, I was tempted to buy something i wanted to pay them for the game. What I'll probably do instead is try and find one of their other games to buy, but when I looked on the store yesterday, none of them had as much instant appeal.
I wasn't talking about you, and I'm glad you are enjoying it without the need to buy consumables. Unfortunately for the developer, this of course means that he isn't making any money off of you. I would prefer to buy the full game ONCE either up front or via in app purchase rather than play a crippled game for free, or "rent" a good game via IAP consumables.
To the Android ranter: yes, I know Android has the same functionality. That was my point. In fact, it's the only way developers can make any money on that platform.
These types of IAP consumables prey on players with little or no restraint/self control, effectively making them pay the way for themselves AND the rest of us.
