    "What can you say about a game in which you pretend to be a goat and do crazy things. It's a fun idea, and my sons enjoyed playing it for a little while, but soon lost interest. Kudos to them for being honest in their product description though. Where else are you going to see someone say "you should probably spend money on something else". It intrigued me and made me feel like the game was perhaps going to be clever and funny. It was ok, but didn't leave me in stitches. "

    "Despite the low quality graphics, the game itself has a pretty engaging story. And I personally think the garbage city and scrap metal environment just adds to its awesome aesthetic"

    "It's a puzzle game with no purchases, yeah. But I was expecting something along the lines of the iconic The Room movie by that weird looking guy Tommy Wiseau. I thought it'd be a game dedicated to that movie, but hey, we can't all get what we want. The puzzles are challenging, so try it out, I guess"

    "The Secret of Mana is one of the most classic RPG games to appear during the golden age of the JRPG, and in a refreshing turn, Square released it straight up, with no micro-transactions or in app purchases to deal with. The port is a little funky control-wise, but that's true of most games that were designed originally for use with a gamepad. Check it out if you haven't or relive memories!"

    "The title of the game, 10000000 is the amount of points you need to earn your freedom. It is a clever game that is part RPG and part infinite runner but all fun. Over 60 objectives and 20 different monsters to fight your way thru this fast paced game."

    "As time has gone on i play more games on my mobile then anything else. I have never liked the idea of in app purchases. I did a search for games without in app purchases. It is a stunning amount with many some being "games" that you realy dont do much with. I found Botanicula and was drawn to it with its art style. It's very much its own style. I would rather pay 4.99 for the game up front then have micro transactions and walls blocking me to play. I did the game fun and fairly easy to learn to play. However the art style i keep talking about is a blessing and a curse. I would often lose track of the little yard waste creatures to the background. It gets kind a cluttered and started to leave me frustrated."

    "A very exciting and creative app game, fun puzzle situations, very detailed characters. Swearing in the game may be a turn off for some though. Worth trying out it is certainly my type of game The lack of in-app purchases is a very nice bonus. It is very annoying sometimes dealing with in-app purchases and having a game not cater to that is refreshing."

    "This looks like a really fun game to try! I love that it has a story line, and I really appreciate that I don't have to pay for in-app purchases. I notice that it has thousands of reviews and most are 5 star, so I feel good about giving the game a try. I guess other people must think it is great too."
