A few months ago, we told you all about Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge, the latest Arcade-style action game in the popular Tilt to Live franchise from One Man Left Studios. Originally released as DLC for Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous, the little extra was so well-received that the devs decided to make it a full-blown game in its own right.
Now, for 2015, they’re freeing up the app for Android gamers.
The devs report that the game has been, regrettably, underperforming in the Google Play store as a paid app “by a whole lot.” After much consideration, and “in the spirit of making lemonade from our lemons,” the devs have decided to relaunch Gauntlet’s Revenge as a free app, with in-game advertising to pick up the slack. Currently there are no plans to change the iOS version of the game; this development solely affects Android gamers.
“We cannot apologize enough to the few players who did purchase the app, as the latest update will unfortunately affect everyone across the board,” One Man Left reports.
If you are among those who bought the original ad-free app before it went freebird, take heart – the devs are eager to refund your money. Get your Google Play order number, and submit a refund request using this form. They’ll process your refund as soon as possible. “We apologize profusely for the inconvenience; we wouldn’t consider a drastic move like this unless it absolutely had to be done,” the devs add.
Gauntlet’s Revenge will henceforth be free-to-play with the advertising, but will include an in-app purchase which will allow players to remove the ads and enjoy fighting the Dot King as he was originally intended to be battled. It’s the perfect time to become acquainted with the flipping arcade action of Tilt to Live – for free.
