A lot of people claim that in-app purchases are just like pushing another coin into an arcade machine, and in some cases the analogy works pretty well. You're paying to keep going after making a mistake, and that's fair enough.
Final Fantasy: All The Bravest is different. There's a dark, villainous truth at the core of Square Enix's latest assault on the App Store that Sephiroth himself would be proud of.
But, before we get to that, we should meet the heroes of the piece. There are, after all, lots of them.
Good credit vs bad credit
