I usually avoid any game with in-game purchases. Which may explain why I have so few games on my iPhone.

The problem is just about all the games have gone this route now. Not as extreme as this guy. But if you look at ios and Android out of the top 100 games 80 will be freemium pay to win bullshit.

This practice is going to be stamped down upon soon and quite right as well... I'm fed up of seeing these 'games' clearly having the sole purpose of fleecing kids.

Unfortunately the red tape may hit honest developers.

I don't understand how it is fleecing kids. Kids have so much ADD anyway, they get bored and move on to the next game anyway. Plus they have no money to purchase anything anyway and can't with in-app purchasing disabled.

How is the game not being targeted towards a younger audience, you only need to look at the way it has been presented to see that they are targeting younger people.

Yes kids have no money, they are however handed over devices by their parents and in some cases have an 'allowance' on what they can purchase.... I have seen this happen.

It's completely amoral and definitely targeting kids, yes you could crack it and get all of the **** for free, a kid however who has just borrowed the device from mom or dad will just click buy, if that parent has not restricted the device then bye bye $50.

'Devs' who pull this kind of crap only need a small percentage of users to pull the trigger and they have made off with a **** load of money. Look at that game, apart from some art work there is no hard work involved, heck I made a complete side scroller with 3 levels of difficulty and 8 levels a piece using j2me in a couple of months on my own, in my own time.

I though Apple had such a stringent approval process for it's apps (i.e. why google chrome took so long) yet this garbage gets approved? Or was this on cydia or something?

Why would Apple deny it when they get a percentage of all in-app purchases?

Looks like they finally came to their senses though.
