LeVamp for iPad
Imagine this: you are a vampire boy that is being chased through the back woods of France. You need to stay ahead of the lynch mob so you run your heart out. Along the way you chomp on red pigs and avoid orange ones (because they contain garlic). You chop trees to cross the stream and swipe to avoid other obstacles.
If you can imagine this, then you are playing Le Vamp – High Voltage Software. You are the boy running from the mob. The longer you run, the more points you get. Collect coins along the way to redeem for powerups.
The app is $1.99 in the app store with in-app upgrades.
Apparently, a story is out there how a child ran up £1,000 ($1,500 US) playing a game and buying the in-app purchases. I have talked in the past about how in-app purchases can cost up toward $100 a pop. Its important to sit down with people and talk about the value of money in these apps.
