Now, iOS gamers familiar with the Paper Monsters 2.5-D platformer franchise may be wondering, Wasnt there a Paper Monsters Recut game released by Crescent Moon earlier this year? Well, if youre one of those people, then youre right, theres already a game called Paper Monsters Recut on the App Store.
But see, this ones different: Paper Monsters Recut! with an exclamation mark.
The same game
Paper Monsters Recut! is essentially the same as Paper Monsters Recut. Both are iOS ports of the Paper Monsters Recut game for PC and Wii U, which itself is a kind of remastered version of the originalPaper Monsters. And both have players using touch controls to complete 2-D platforming levels set in a paper world with vibrant 3-D graphics.
But its free!
But where Recut! actually differs from Recut is in its pricing. While Recut costs $0.99, Recut! is free to download from the App Store.
Recut! offers the full gaming experience for free, but with a catch: It includes ads.
There appears to be no in-app purchase to get rid of the ads. So if youd like to play the game without the potential distraction of ads, then youre better off paying for the $0.99 but ad-free Paper Monsters Recut.
A mere exclamation mark differentiating the two versions of the same game is likely to cause some confusion. But in its defense, Crescent Moon says that adding Free to the name of a game tends to discourage people from downloading the game, thinking its just a lite version.
