I haven't watched any ads and it doesn't chew through my 6s+ battery. It's just dishonest to put an ad opt out in for $ that doesn't even exist. It's most certainly not the $.99 that matters, it is the principle. I chose to purchase it to show my support but anyone who didn't has the exact same game as me for nothing. Shady to say the least. You don't advertise something for sale and sell it to ppl and in the end have what they bought not even be in existence.
