The game was amazing especially the campaign but the only part I didn't like was when I heard this (we won't lose with a judger on

(5★) NOVA 3 Freedom is better though.
This app is worth it if you cant stand ads, but you will have to grind alot in this game or pay. NOVA 3 Freedom is better because
there is no money involved, just watch a few ads and you get as many a
