      Honestly, Puzzle Fighter was a pretty good game and its F2P model wasn't obnoxious and predatory like most other similar style mobile games (e.g. Marvel Puzzle Quest). Although, it not being forceful enough in getting people to spend money on it is also probably why Capcom shut it down a few months ago... it wasn't making them enough money.
