  1. I’ve tried on multiple devices, but iTunes store no longer supports the “none” option for credit cards. You HAVE to put in a payment method now


    • Hello Carly, that’s strange because it does work still. It is important to have consistent information so that the system recognize your application as authentic. The game is already released in the US if you are located in the US but it should become available in other countries very soon. We will post an article informing everyone when it goes worldwide. Thank you.
