While some of the banter is mildly humorous, I don't think "drat it all to hell" is appropriate language for a casual game (level 40)

Given "drat it to hell"--like several sentences in the long game intro--is clear evidence that the developers aren't native speakers of English, I can't be too censorious about that phrase in particular.

I can be VERY severe about them not getting adequate help to correct their shortcomings.

I didn't actually play the intro. Went through two or three pages then decided to fast-track the rest of the way. Was quite surprised that it went on for so long.

I agree - if you're not a native English speaker, you should get someone who IS (preferably several people) to go through it. It's not hard to find people who would even volunteer to do this for free, for a developer whose games they liked.
