Furthermore, Skulls of Shogun is entirely free of in-app purchases, meaning your $4.99 will buy the game in full. However, there’s a catch.
Certain users have found that the app has suffered a crashing problem upon launch if their iDevice’s region is set to a country outside of the United States. If you encounter this problem, jump into your iDevice’s Settings app, and switch over to the United States – even temporarily. This should fix the problem (an update is in the works, too).
