Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom, the popular endless climbing game by Venan Entertainment, is now available as a free universal app and has a notably revised rewards system.
Originally an iPhone game, the iPad version of Trees Of Doom didn’t launch until a few months later. Now, Venan has dropped the “HD” app entirely, converted the iPhone and iPod touch version into a universal app, and slashed the price down to zero. As the App Store wind seems to be blowing these days, the choice of making the game free appears to be in favor of possibly bigger profits via in-app purchases, i.e., the new rewards system.
Not quite turning Ninjatown into a “pay to play” game, the new rewards system includes an in-app store that results in more satisfying gameplay if you’re willing to unlock the pocketbook. Thankfully, one can still earn power-ups within the game, though the store allows those with no app budget limits to have a huge advantage through upgrades and more.
To soften the blow to anyone who’s sensitive to this type of change, Venan allows earning coins just by playing and has also introduced Daily Spins. One free each day, the slot machine-style system can award you up to 50,000 free Feroshi Coins.
So, what kinds of things can you get with these coins? There are one time use items, such as Moustachios, and power-up upgrades, such as extra time to the Bubblegum Shield. In addition, you can get themes and ninja suits to freshen up the appearance. For previous players, any suits you’ve unlocked will still be unlocked and you’ll receive Feroshi Coins for earned achievements.
Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 4.1 or later, and available in the App Store as a free download.
