I am on level 39 and in Region 8. I have 8 of the 9 map pieces needed to move to level 9. I have got this far without spending any REAL money or REAL money to buy glu credits. My glu credits are constantly disappearing so I don't trust them. ANyway, I went to complete the Gigawatt series and the only way to buy the Gigawatt gun is with glu credits that cost $20!!! That is ridiculous. Have the people that are past region 8, did you have to buy your gun too or is something wrong with my game? Any help would be appreciated. I can post a pic of my region 8 screen and the gigawatt need 480 glu credits. I"m not willing to spend $20 but I do love this game.
