Were you trying to buy a game? If so, what game was it?


I was gonna buy keys for a trivia game I play, I'm not sure what triggered the offer though

Not sure what triggers it, but it's been going on for awhile.  Got Super Mario Run this way months ago and the other day I got an in app purchase in marvel puzzle quest with the discount.

Ah, Bust-a-Move, I still have you for my PS2 :)

 

Was eyeballing DariusBurst. Just so many games right now, and so little time :|

 

I love shmups on console, and on PC. I find it kinda frustrating to play on my phone though, at times. Anyone played DariusBurst on their phones (no controller)? If so, how is it?

Just a note: Rayforce is actually Galactic Attack on the Sega Saturn. It was also called Layer Section and Gunlock in other territories, just in case you needed the extra confusion. Look, all you need to know is that it's the 2D game in the series... the rest are polygonal.

I bought Darius Burst, because at two dollars, it was rather hard not to. So it's not Android TV compatible? Wasted opportunity there. Also considering Bust-a-Move, but that series tends to be wildly variant in quality and this might be one of the duds.

Edit: Darius plays well enough on a tablet... you swipe around the screen and the ship snaps to your finger. Instant dodging might make the game a little too easy, though. I hope that helps... if it does, say so! I answer questions and get no acknowledgement from the people who asked... makes me feel like I'm talking to a wall.

I feel the same way sometimes after posting these walls of text...ahem...sales.  But, he's probably busy doing whatever people do outside of CAG, and it's a work day.  I'm sure he'll respond.

 

As far as the Android TV incompatibility for Darius, yes, it's true that it won't work on Shield TV.  A weird white screen with a hashtag symbol pops up, and the game won't load past that screen.  I believe that Android TV compatibility requires specific features to be included in the game, and some developers won't take the time to include all those features.  Japanese devs are notorious for this.  Case in point, Soul Calibur not being updated to work with newer Android OS versions, but still loading on older versions without having to do the license check.  But, Darius works well on my Galaxy Tab 2 as well which means it's low end tablet friendly, and it's Moga controller compatible for anyone who has one of those. 

 

Please let us know if Bust A Move has controller support.

I do appreciate the input, folks, Thanks! I have a feeling it probably wouldn't keep my interest on the phone for long. I've played a few in the past that I'd last maybe a month on before moving on to something else. I'll add it to my wishlist to keep it in mind in the future.

I don't think that Darius is going to go any lower than $1.99, so keep that in mind if you decide to pass on it. It will definitely go on sale again, maybe during the holidays, but the company seems to think that its older franchises are worthy of a premium price. I've never seen any of its games hit 99 cents before and they probably never will.

A valid point, and something to consider!

Aaand, I bought it :)

 

I'll let you know how it works on my Moto G5 Plus piece-o-crap!

 

Oh - I bought Alter Dogma a while back. It seems interesting, but didn't hold my attention very long.

So I tried Evertale and Pocket RPG - I didn't like Evertale as much, so I uninstalled that one. But so far I like Pocket RPG enough :)

 

DariusBurst is also fun. Takes me back...love the shmups! *pew pew!*
