KF on KND Editor’s Note: the game is free to play, however you’ll find it’s a lot easier and faster to complete certain tasks with in-app purchases of donuts, which are needed to build things and (optionally) to speed up task times.
It is possible to play without making any real-money purchases because you also find and collect donuts while playing the game, but it will take longer to complete tasks and level up because most items require more than 50 donuts to build. However, given the high quality of this app and the fact that the app itself is free, you may ultimately decide the in-app purchases are worth the money and a fair way to compensate the app developers.

Note that while (as of this writing) it only has an average review rating of 3.5/5 stars, that’s because right now it only has 11 total reviews and two of them are 1-star. However, one of the 1-star reviews mistakenly states the app requires in-app purchases (there are actually no in-app purchases) and another complains of installation problems and didn’t indicate which device was being used. We here at KF on KND found it installed with no problems on the Fire HD.
