The release of Devolver Tumble Time for free on mobile
With the Devolver Tumble Time release on Android and iOS, Devolver Digital humorously denounces the abusive economic model of mobile games to make players spend money. We had already told you about this absurdly humorous game when pre-registration opened.
In this match-3 parody with minimalist and colorful art direction, complete the objectives in 60 second levels by chaining combos that will allow you to trigger the skill of your characters. When you combine 7 or more identical elements, they turn into bombs of various kinds depending on the number of elements.
At the start of the game, for get your first characters from rank C to A, search in the detritus for money earned in levels. To buy characters premium from rank B to S, you must use the gachapon in exchange for items to be collected in the game or purchased in packs.
How the business model works
Even if it’s a parody, the Devolver Tumble Time released on mobile offers an experience largely equal to the games it denounces. The gameplay is simple, efficient and fluidthe difficulty goes up in progression and the game is full of content.
Each participation in a level costs you one of your five hearts. When you run out of them, you can wait for them to recharge at the rate of one every fifteen minutes. If you are in a hurry, head to the store where you can view advertisements to regain lives. We also note the little touch of humor since you have to watch two ads to win a heart, while you only need to watch one to win two.
If you want to spend money, you can also get unlimited hearts for 999 years for 2.99 euros, which amounts to only 0.0029 euros per year, so go for this good deal. There is also an ultimate pack to unlock everything at once unlimited for 114.99 euros. More seriously, as long as you agree to watch some advertisements, you can totally enjoy the game in free-to-play.
