Ads are a nightmare on the internet. Nobody likes them, yet they are, and will be the main way of monetizing on the digital world in the near future. Up until this point, there were none of those in Electrilinked, but finally my greed got the best of me. I dropped some hints about this in the past, and here we are.
If you look below all of the main menu buttons, there is a banner ad now. Currently this is the only ad that pops up in Electrilinked, and I don’t think I will add any more in the near future, and if I do, I will make sure that it doesn’t collide with any content, and won’t be annoying. I will not use any full page ads, just these little banners.
I don’t think this will be very annoying, and again, I will make sure these ads do not intervene with the gameplay.
And, just to state the obvious, the Plus version will eliminate all ads. Like I promised in the past, there is not another in-app purchase that remove the ads. The regular Plus version IAP that gives you extra levels and a level editor will also remove all ads. If you already own Plus, you won’t see any of this.
Also, there is currently a glitch in the current version that causes the pop-up settings menu to be partially covered by the banner ad. It’s still very much possible to press the buttons under the ad, but it’s very annoying and I just made a fix for it. The new version that will come out soon will fix it. Thanks for your patience.
That’s it for now. I’m very sorry if this negatively affects you, and I hope you will still enjoy playing Electrilinked against all odds.
P.S. Ads currently only appear on the Android version.
