Mobile gaming at its worst. That's why I've given up on it, I just game casually now.

IMO Glu games are the worst.

If a game has in app purchases or in game purchases, whether it be for Android, iPhone, PC, Xbox, Playstation, whatever. I almost always immediately uninstall. Cant stand F2P games, and IAP's. Corrupting the whole video game industry. I love paying for games that I want to play, as long as those games contain almost everything I will need without missing out of stuff. DLC's are different, I still dislike DLC's, but put up with them when they are worthwhile, but I would much rather have a complete game from the get go. Pass for me.

Apple should give a limit to the number of In-App Purchases per app i.e. 5 for each app , and if the developer what to increase the number of In-App purchases they should pay to get it (so that they can know how bad it is to pay money for stupid , selfish In-App purchases)

It would have been better if it were a paid app and not "free", so you can just play all you want. FF series are darn expensive but it has no in app purchase so its a go for me.

Personally, I love how these IAP games are available for us to download and play for "free".

Without which, people of the masses will never be able to enjoy games which have got awesome graphics and gameplay. I guess IAP kind of games makes you realised that nothing in life is for free! Either we work for it(grinding) or we pay for it(money). And isn't most things like that in life. For myself, I love how these games work out to be. You can log in battle in the campaign til you are stuck. Then PVP for 10mins to use up 3 energy bars. Then upgrade your weapons/squad as these can take time. And that's it. Good way of imposing a "time lock" to prevent gaming for 1-2hours.
