I understand it, I just don't agree with it. The biggest problem with "niche" titles is name recognition. And my point is that they aren't going to get it when they've priced themselves out of the market. This game isn't any more niche than any other board-game-to-iOS-port (Catan, for example), but they aren't going to push into the market any more with their current price-point.


I think the developer painted themselves into a corner in this case. They put this app out and gave a time limit that it would be half price and promised when raised it would never drop again. Now they are considered assholes if they drop the price and considered idiots if they don't. Personally, I am impressed that they've stuck to their word this long. Must be awfully tempting to get that huge influx of cash.

PLEASE NOTE: Ghostbusters™ is free to play, but charges real money for additional in-app content. You may lock out the ability to purchase in-app content by adjusting your device’s settings.


The App Store REALLY needs another category for shit like this. Paid, Free and Free with IAP. Free with IAP is NOT free.

Banana Kong is a lot of fun. Just wish it had iCloud saving.

Yep, I think this assessment is probably fairly accurate.

Looks to be a pretty interesting game. With mechanics in game to obtain crystals.

Haven't tried it yet but I was browsing AppZapp and users had given it something like 7 thumbs down and 0 thumbs up, not very promising but you never know.

Played a bit and like it, but then I minimized it, did something else and went back to it and it started me over at the character creation screen so I lost my progress! Frustrating.


Oh, haha, you have to input your email and password to get progress saved. Works cross device too.

There are some bits that are rough around the edges. Things like miss spelling or odd wording making it obvious that some non-english speaking dev made this. Though the concept is pretty interesting with some good social aspects.

It's another one of the "dragon vale" variant, but offers deeper gameplay, I think. For one, you can wage war against other players. And the fact that you can use an "in-game obtainable" premium currency (other than gold) to make shop purchases. The "in-game obtainable" sold me. :)

Looks like it plays a whole bunch of arcade games from the late 70s-early 80s. Not sure what the legality of that is, but here is some discussion on the app: http://forums.toucha...ad.php?t=176097

I don't really want to deal with figuring it out right now but just taking notes for later, this guy on neogaf has been saying "Compatible with most (all?) of the 0.139u1 romset." If that means anything, should be easy to google.

Solid snake, do you have a good source for .139u1 that you might be able to PM me?

Bart: You are my guest, and I am your host. What is your pleasure? What do you like to do?
Jim: I don't know... play chess... screw...
Bart: Let's play chess.

It has its own thread but iTunes are on sale at Best Buy. $100 -> $85. Sometimes it'll go 25% off and only around Christmas will it go higher than that.

Not really, I did a search and there are torrents of them but I didn't download any.


Looks like the developer of Dungelot has finished the new version of the game and now just adding achievements. He put the PC version on facebook for people to try/test. PC http://www.dungelot..../dungelotPC.zip MAC http://www.dungelot....dungelotMAC.zip

I grabbed Gridlee but I expect it will suck without an actual joystick and buttons but it's still fun to mess around with. I'll try adding ROMs later...

I'm a boob, bought Dungelot for $2 the day it went up from 99 cents, played it for like 2 days til I learned the developer was basically redoing the whole game so I set it aside to wait for the update... now it's free. It's still worth $2 but I wish I had waited.
