Update: I have written step by step instructions on how to turn off IAP's on your Kindle Fire at the bottom of this review. I hope this information is helpful to you should you choose to turn off this feature.

The game graphics are OK but game play may be difficult depending on the sensitivity of your motion sensors within your device. The objects to hit or avoid are in one of three lanes and they are sometimes stacked close together in the same lane and it forces you to hit a red object in order to collect the blue object you may need. The objects can also come after a slight hill and this does not provide you much time to respond as you are moving very fast. The game is difficult as that in after 10 tries I haven't completed the first level. I hope you can fly better than me.

There are objects that have to be hit to collect to help you race:

* Auto repair automatically repairs the craft's shields over time
* Multiplier multiplies the points gathered on the track
* Advanced ion reactor lets you squeeze out more energy from gathered ion orbs
* Head start skips the easy part and lets you jump right into the high velocities
* Red objects that you should avoid or crush using the strike mode
* Blue crush objects for points
* Blue cross - crush 3 to repair the craft's shields
* Ion orbs replenish your craft's energy that is used in strike and focus modes.

You also receive points and Kions for collecting ion orbs
Kions are your currency to buy upgrades for your craft. You can earn them in game play or buy them with real money. You can buy:

* 15,000 for $.99
* 50,000 for $1.99
* 200,000 for $3.99
* 500,000 for $4.99 and credits apply only to the single device that you purchased them on.

OK, the game isn't bad. I gave it 4 stars, minus 1 for tracking and minus 1 for IAP. I'm playing it with no ads, no tracking, and no IAPs. How? Because I use these OTHER apps:

Addon Detector - don't walk, RUN to the Google Play Store to get this FREE (and I mean FREE as in NO CHARGE, NO ADS, NO TRACKING, and NO NAGWARE POPUPS) utility that will show you EVERYTHING you ever wanted to know about that app you just installed, including all the hidden tracking and advertising. For today's FAOTD, Addon Detector shows it has the MoPub advertising module in it. Not so strangely, the Amazon Appstore doesn't have this gem. Wonder why? Hmmm.

LBE Privacy Guard - OK, you'll have to root your device to use this, but GAWD ALMIGHTY WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Privacy Guard allows you to DISABLE EACH OF THE PERMISSIONS you granted when you installed an app. When you install a new app, Privacy Guard asks you if you want to configure permissions for it. You can then disable any permissions you just had to grant in order to install that app. Or you can just go ahead and run the app. Let's say it's todays tracking-infested FAOTD - it wants to know your location. Privacy Guard pops up a box that asks if you want to allow ION to obtain your location - YOU CAN SAY NO! And when it wants to report back to momma, another box opens and asks if you want to let it on the internet - YOU CAN SAY NO! Oh, and did I mention - LBE Privacy Guard is also FREE (NO CHARGE, NO ADS, NO TRACKING, NO NAGWARE). Can it get any better?

AdFree Android - Another app that requires a rooted phone YOU STILL HAVEN'T ROOTED YOUR !@$!# PHONE? So you paid for an app and it STILL HAS ADVERTISING in it? No problem! AdFree Android will happily DENY that app the ability to talk to the mothership.

Here we go again: another game that wants you or your kids to give them even more money after you pay for it.

Only this time the game is tracking your location in addition to being dangerous to your pocketbook.

And I had hoped developers had learned that violating privacy and including In-App Purchases isn't a business model that's going to get them far. Disappointing.

The problems with Amazon's IAP system, for those who haven't yet read them:

* Amazon actively discourages people from turning OFF in-app purchases. In order to prevent IAP presently, the user must know his or her account login information and use it to turn them OFF inside the Amazon store app. That is a BAD THING. It should be very easy to turn off - simply go to the setting and select "off"! That level of security - using account credentials - should be the only way to enable IAP at the device, and to do so specifically. But that still relies on device security, which is not enough.

* You might not know (but some kids have discovered) that resetting the device's Amazon store app will turn back on IAP (enabled is the default setting), so when the parent goes to do something with an Amazon app the parent is prompted for his or her account credentials and the parent will most likely not realize that IAP is now re-enabled for the device.

* Some developers are making the games intentionally extremely difficult to artificially encourage In-App Purchases.

* Many IAPs are for "disposable" or "one-time-use" items. Not only that, several don't transfer from one device to another, or even survive uninstallation and reinstallation.

Good luck and watch your back; it's becoming a jungle out there.
