Default Glu games

You know this weekend I went on a Glu games binge and I have to say I loved a bunch of them. Just some of them are super hard once u play them a bit, like cant even progress past a certain point unless u pay for gems or whatever the premium currency is. To bad because I would pay at least $6 for most of there games if they were beatable with no IAP. Anyone else like Glu games or have some tips to get past IAP barrier?

Glu games are pretty, and fun to play for one hour, then you hit a paywall and quit or pay inapps, then delete. So much for that.

Well I played like 6 of there games for like a whole weekend with no pay wall yet except for a few of them and I feel like I am getting close to a wall on a few others. Sigh I wish they made premium games!

Dragon Slayer got stupid hard after a few areas got beat. U would like have 25% life left and no way to get more unless u bought IAP potions. Death Dome is another one I hit a pay wall on, and one is coming or near on Blood & Glory 2.

I hate games that have health potions as premium currency only and not currency that is gained normally.

Yup I am getting kind of far on that one myself, I am thinking becauase I got a random blue car as a drop that has helped me go farther with no IAP.

Default Glu Games Strike

I'm very serious. They rip people off and try to milk them of their hard-earned cash. It's not fair to people. If the strike is effective enough, they can do something to solve this problem, like making a premium version for each of their freemium games.

They without a doubt have talent in developing games. But until they make a good premium one, I won't download a single thing from them.

Problem is if they made a premium priced game then 'some' people will wait first for it to be 99c or be free

If we all bought premium games on the day of release they 'may' keep releasing more. But wayyy too many people wait for price drops. I don't blame companies for going freemium. Blame the users

You hear stats all the time, a game sells 300 copies at 1.99, goes free for 48 hours and has 10000 downloads. Sadly I don't blame companies for going freemium. It's our fault

I'd be more inclined to blame some developers, it doesn't take much to work out which devs will drop and how far after release they'll do it. They've created a habit that general populace is getting more used to, effectively turning off their early adopters. I'll get stuff on release if its something I want regardless of price, if its not I'll wait, if I think it's loaded around IAP I'll wait, if its Freemium I most likely wont touch it.

Also free downloads aren't an indication of possible sales, just because a person picked up something free doesn't mean they would ever have bothered otherwise.
