What is Worse than Fluffy, Mediocre IAP? Fluffy, Medicore IAP Geared to Sell Itself
on April 21, 2015
OpenFeint has long been removed, but there is still rather poor IAP. Superficial, one-time use powers, some costumes - no real variety, no real point. The IAP is ignorable, and I do normally tend to be more lenient than others on fluffy, otherwise useless IAP, but this isn't even GOOD fluffy, otherwise useless IAP.
What makes it all the more bleah is the in-game currency pricing of these one-time use (and their "upgrades") definitely makes it rather steep, steep grinding without even an option to make them permanently available. This is worthless IAP geared to sell itself.
200 Nuts for a one-time magnet that draws more nuts to you in hopes perhaps that you will get... what, enough nuts to buy it again? Perhaps grind out 1000 nuts to permanently upgrade your 200 nut purchased, one-time use magnet so you can grind out nuts easier to get enough to keep buying 200 nut purchased... you get the idea.
No, this is junk geared to get you to plop down money to get a WHOLE bunch of nuts at once for empty, unfulfilling "gear". Nothing more than to throw cash at what is intrinsically a mind-numbing genre (it IS an endless runner) in the vain hopes your additional money will make the game more fun. Believe me, I've gone down that road in various MMOs and "freemiums", and only rarely does that thinking actually work out. sad lol
I flew 5,250m and collected 178 Acorns. And then I was bored. Not even the 20 dollar package will make this game better. Same repeating FOUR areas, same repeating obstacles, merely faster the pace the farther you fly. Achievements are higher and higher amounts of the same thing. Nothing to make it more than an average endless runner. Even the graphics and frame rates are average.
Then there are the "News" links that lead you to the Amazon Appstore for more premium games that have even WORSE reviews. Hah!
Also contains Flurry Analytics. Installed 18.5MB, moving automatically to Storage, leaving 1.16MB on Device Memory. Does play OFFLINE and exits cleanly with the back-key, so hey - there is something good after all. Phhhhhbt.
I say nuts to this game.
