Stupid ad in game play

Dang already, just let us pay for the game and let us play. Do you really think we are going to get a stupid game just because you screwed us into tapping on it? NOT gonna happen. The only thing you accomplish by putting stupid ad in game play, is make us get rid of your game. Was a good game till you screwed up with ad.

Well done

This is exactly what an iPhone game should be- simple, fun and addictive. Just like the classic arcade games- it's 1 part middle command and 1 part asteroids. If you grew up in the 80's you'll be familiar with these titles. If not- you'll just love the game because it's dope.
