Setting a BAD precident with ads in gaming

I know this game is "free" (a term used very loosely in the app store these days) and expectations shouldn't be too high to begin with, but this was once a pretty good game that did justice to the original and I could overlook the fact that they wanted you to pay for certain upgrades/levels within the game. But apparently that wasn't enough to support the developers because now they sell ads that appear to an obnoxious degree throughout the game. And not only static ads, but VIDEO ads that interrupt the flow of the game and is a complete turnoff. I LOVE Atari and generally support every iOS release they put out but I won't be downloading any more of their "free" games and encouraging this type of product. I would MUCH rather pay for the initial download and be rid of in-app purchases and annoying pop-up ads. In fact, I think it's safe to say that your advertisers actually DISCOURAGE me from buying their product by pimping their goods this way. Hey Atari: How's about working on an update with new games on your greatest hits app that I'd happily pay for instead of this garbage?


Just decided to give this app a go again... In 10 minutes it has crashed about 5 time already. Profile? Crash. Select ship? Crash. Start level? Crash... Etc. still some issues huh? Guess I'll try back in another year...

(Previous review from last year)
Seriously? Updated and then game crashed every time I ran it. I to lost all my records/money. I tried to contact support but they just told me to talk to I did and apple told me to contact Atari lol. Today I said to hell with it and deleted and reinstalled the app. Its back to the last version (that works) but still all my achieves and cash are gone. Ty Atari!

Still no price????

I haven't played this game for quite some time and finally decided to play it again... I am amazed to see that there still is NO PRICE for the upgraded ships.. I would gladly spend some money with you guys if I actually knew how much money I needed to spend... And I'm not going to upgrade to the full version and lose all of the progress I have made just to start over...
