Last week, we saw a teaser for Glu Mobile's newest game that plays off the horrors of war, Frontline Commando: D-Day. Today, it's landed on Android as a free-to-play cover-based shooter. Touting 145 missions "based on the actual beach landings," the game promises plenty of playtime for your money. What's that you say? The game is free? Well, about that.
In our last article, we mentioned (by way of an overly complicated Nazi analogy wrapped in a ridiculous satirized mockery of Eisenhower's speech to D-Day troops) that Glu said you could turn off in-app purchases. Well, as it turns out, the developer apparently meant via iOS's built-in restrictions. The Android version has no such ability to disable IAP in settings. Typical Naz-err, Glu Mobile trickery!
Still, in-app purchases aren't inherently evil (even if this dev doesn't have a squeaky clean reputation), and it's hard to say without a lengthy play through if you'll be able to finish the game without buying credits. Worst case scenario, it costs nothing but time to find out.
If you want to try your hand at one of the most intense battles of history, and don't mind that you might be charged a few bucks to upgrade weapons (which sucks but, to be fair, this war cost a heck of a lot more the first time around), then Uncle Sam wants you to hit the widget below.
