    This one's a definite battery-drainer and well worth the price. Not counting the possibility of spending more money on credits, of course.

    Chromanoids is an interesting experiment in creating a real arcade-like feel without needing to nickel and dime customers with micro-purchases.

    Chromanoids is a fresh coat of paint for the space shooter genre.

    Charging for apps or making it free with an in-app purchases are both viable options for turning a profit, but combining these two is ambitious at best and insulting at worst. Either way it's a bad deal for the consumer. Whether or not it's a deal breaker is up to you. Shame too, because without this stupid blunder I'd have nothing but great things to say about Chromanoids.

    A functional, colourful space shooter slightly soured by the decision to implement in-app purchases.

    At least Chromanoids is a good homage to those games in every other way, with stylish retro art, a campy storyline and good sound.
