Was the first one to vote for 774 Deaths LOL. But at least it now has 3 votes. It's the one game that has captured me from all the releases.

Honestly, there's no way Nightfall should have been excluded from the poll, but it likely would never have won anyway, largely due to it being a niche genre, being too confusing for some people, and the fact that the developers decided to charge a fair price for it (read: "too expensive") when its main competition this week is free (at least for the initial offering).

I'm certainly not saying SMRPG is a bad game by any means, or that it doesn't deserve to win (and it will be the one I'm voting for this week), but the actual quality of a game in the perversely-skewed iOS world is hardly always the deciding factor as to whether or not it'll be popular.

Dude, I was gonna vote for CreaVures, I was one of the only ones who did nominate it. Not my fault it's not in the voting! So I saw SMRPG as free, downloaded and enjoyed it. I had no choice but to vote for it as it was good and none of my nominees got through.

A polished turd is still a turd in the end, and that is unfortunately what CreaVures turned out to be. It looks god-frickin'-awfully gorgeous, but doesn't even play a quarter as good as it looks.

Wow, this is a tough week for me. I like quite a few of the games, but have issues with just about all of them.

Will probably vote for Saturday Morning RPG just because I like the ideas behind it (but am not a huge fan of the combat/tapping system).

Sky Gnomes is good, but frustrating with it's upgrades.

Then there's 774 Deaths and 8 bit ninja....both games I like, but not sure if they're GOTW material.

Funny, I ended up getting the first Bug Princess this week, but needed to slow down the spending so didn't end up with BP 2. And I would venture to bet that it would probably have gotten my vote.

In the end, I'm waiting on updates for both SMRPG and Sky Gnomes, both of which I think I'll like much better after their updated.

Saturday Morning RPG for sure, a fresh take on the JRPG style with great touch based elements incorporated to make the battle system fun and intuitive to the device. Great nostalgia and humor back up a solid game.

We're already working on an update that will relieve you from the relentless tapping.

We're definitely taking in all the feedback we can!

Are you guys fully taking the tapping out of the game? Because, for me, I actually liked the tapping.

Definitely Avernum for me. Unique story, fully open world, and flexible enough to play it both as a traditional party based CRPG or with only a single character. Not a lot of depth like that available on the app store.

No, it'll still be there - we're just going to give people a choice between four different charge styles.
