I've been playing Robotek HD lately and started to notice that it is impossible to win past anything with more than 15 of the lightning bolt things because they sit there and get extra turn after extra turn, did they make it impossible just so you have to buy in app purchases

This cracked me up. I don't play many games, but loved Robotek 'till I stopped playing it a few weeks ago for that exact reason. Who knows, after all it IS based on chance and any odds-based game can be rigged!

It isn't rigged, but designed to be harder as you go. That's part of the fun of playing - to see if you can get past a certain point That point just goes out further if you choose to make an in-app purchase.

Beat it! Oh snap!

"The Manual" says the computer CANNOT get triples more three times in a row. Is that your guys' experience?

That would be the bright shiny one in the middle of the Atlantic. You do have to make at least a 99-cent purchase to get access to it though.

If you read the help, you'll see that the computer can never roll the triples more than two-in-a-row. There'll be times that you see the multiple rolls on consecutive turns and that can be mighty aggravating. Meanwhile, you'll forget those times that you roll those triples (or multiple triples) yourself. Also from the help, the player at a disadvantage will have a higher probability of rolling one of those helpful triples.

You should also try playing in Duel mode. You'll see that the player going first has a fairly sizable advantage.

Also, use your coins to stack the odds in your favor.
Use your first roll to set up a the firewall. If you can roll a '3' to set up a nice firewall and maintain it, you might just have a chance

But seriously, it's just chance - so you just need a bit of luck.
