Saw the trailer video. Looked like the most fun fruit ninja with patterns, instead of the usual fruit ninja random fruit trajectories.

Instabuy!

Yep, me too. It's awesome seeing something use the Fruit Ninja concept in an entirely new way.

Should probably mention that you won't find any IAPs in either the free or paid versions of Attack of the Spooklings.

Yes. The Free version has ads. The paid one hasn't. That's the only difference.

We did this to broaden our potential audience. Glad to see it's well received.

So that's the thing. There are no IAPs! You don't really upgrade your game, you just get the paid version. The quickest way to do so will be hitting the Support Us button in the main menu. This will take you to a dedicated microsite with options for you to support further game development, but it currently lacks the link to the paid version (the New Zealand release caught us by surprise! I'll add those later).

Worry not, both versions share the same Game Center account, so 'upgrading' doesn't affect your online highscores.

It's a regular Spookling, but a Ninja Spookling sounds like a greaaaat idea!

Check out Attack of the Spooklings.
Classic Arcade experience, unlimited Slashing Action!
