Purchase Verification Failed

Hello there, PIXOWL. I am having some problems with the purchasing of the campaigns. I have been with this game all the way through beta testing, although now I cannot restore my purchases. It shows the "Purchase Successful" message so I tap okay and then it says "Purchase Verification Failed". So I tried to buy all the campaigns again (the special deal thing) and it says I already bought it. So I click "Ok" when it asks me if I want it for free, and it says "Purchase Verification Failed". Please fix this, for now I cannot do anything with this game!

EDIT: It was a limited time offer, all the campaigns or elements or something plus some mana, I try to buy it, I put in my password, and it does the same thing as before. But here's the bad part: I'm pretty sure it took the money is cost anyway. This is not good. Well, not good for me. Anyway, please fix this, or... Something will happen. Maybe the sun won't come out tomorrow?


It crashes a whole lot, and I unlocked human and it is annoying when it says I don't have it on the featured screen, when you watch videos for mana, half the time it never gives it to you, unless if you watch a lot. Also, the most annoying is when it gets stuck on a purchasing popup, and isn't actually there, but blocks the view. Other than that, it is one of my favourite games.


I love the concept of the game, and the missions are creative (though there are quite a few platforming ones) speaking of, if I had to pick one complaint about the game, it would be the controls on the controllable elements/characters, they are so stiff and hard to use. It feels like your controlling a brick and it makes the platforming sections ridiculously harder than they should. Is it possible to fix this?
