    I love Nerd3's reviews, he gets so passionate about how much he hates some games!

    Curse all these types of money making scams.
    I am not a fan of in app purchases, games should be paid for outright and claiming its free when you have to pay to actually make playing worthwhile is terrible.

    These types of things either make me uninstall or make me bloody minded enough to complete the game without paying.
    An example is Plants vs Zombies 2, I would gladly pay for it as I love it but have now set myself the challenge of completing without paying a penny

    Yeah this isn't a game, it's a scam riding on the back of a game.

    I was about to download this but now I think I won't, I'd happily pay for games with no in app purchases.

    I hate in app purchases with a passion and this is on of the main reasons I don't do much mobile gaming.

    I think GOG have the rights to it (As with most abandonware-games)
    Been sorely tempted to get it myself!

    I don't mind in-app purchases for some things (especially a small token to remove ads, for example - they have to cover expenses somehow right?). But to purposely make an action drag on in order to frustrate you enough to make you pay is a sketchy, horrid tactic.

    I saw this at the weekend, you know PlantsvsZombies2 has a £69.99 purchase in it as well! I play the game for free and never buy anything thus I have free fun and the hyper greedy EA get nothing

    Yeah its currently $5.99 on GOG.

    Only in app purchase I have made was for a pro licence for New Star Soccer which I was totally addicted to for a while. It was 60p and let you transfer clubs and some other stuff. But you could still totally play the game and have great fun without it.
    I didn't sweat that one

    PvZ2 is totally doable without a purchase. The Missues completed it (well finished the currently available levels) but then she is an absolute demon at that game.

    Same here. Gotten up to the 4th 'zone'(?) so far. Not spent a single penny, don't plan to. What on earth is 70 quid? I haven't even bothered checking out the cash shop.

    I actually have my original CDs still for Dungeon Keeper and the Deeper Dungeons, and I found a website (at bottom of the post) that had it adapted to fully working on my mac, so I play now and again, still getting stuck on the same levels as when I was 12
