The row around use of in-app purchases in kids’ games continues to rumble – including a lawsuit in the US. Capcom’s Beeline studio has a front-seat in that dispute thanks to its work on Smurfs’ Village, but now it has a new game that may spark controversy. Shrek’s Fairytale Kingdom has similar elements of resource management allied to quests, and it’s also freemium – charging between £2.99 and £69.99 for bundles of coins and magic stars. More concerning, though, is the way it pops up a “Special Offer” to spend £6.99 and get extra stars barely five minutes in, after the player completes the tutorial. In a game that’s sure to appeal to children – even if they’re not the only players – it’s a controversial move.
