Caution: sarcasm!

So, apart from greedy developers trying to get your two bucks without delivering iphoneX or mfi support - anyone actually played this yet and can tell how this translates to iphone? The steam reviews are quite positive ...

Edit: this post is now out of context, but was obviously meant to be sarcastic.

Ferb, I know what we are gonna do today!

Never called the developer greedy. Iím a big believer in Premium games and believe they games should be paid for vs free. Asked a question with no whining or complaining. Thatís the purpose of a forum.

You're totally right, and maybe I'm not in the best mood today. On the other hand, when I read sentences like

the iphoneX s**t is getting old, but then again its the same thing every time apple decides to frack with the formats.

everyone and their dog doesn't rush out to buy the latest/greatest each time apple takes a dump, so the ratio of iphoneX users to iphoneEverythingElse users is very small, most developers don't feel like wasting tons of extra time/salaries/artist fees right off the bat for a tiny market. they'd prefer to release for the majority, see how its received, and then just throw the X support into an update IF the game is received well enough to warrant the expense.

I wonder what itís like as a dev to see all these people making complaints and statements such as ďgreedy devĒ or acting like spending $1.99 of your hard earned cash is such a steep investment. You pay more for food from a McDonaldís, yet I donít see anybody acting high and mighty when they hand you an effed up order.

Be thankful people even take the time to bring their vision to life. I would imagine it hard to find the desire to even continue making games in the face of such constant griping and complaints about how much you expect from a $1.99 purchase. Thatís a steal, considering most AAA titles on a console or PC are easily $40.00+

Thank you dev, for putting the time and effort in to bringing your vision to life for us to enjoy, hiccups and all! Look forward to more

Can't see any hate. Just people struggling with missing iphone X support, people struggling with people complaining about missing iphone X support, people struggling with controls and people struggling with crashes. That's what we are here for. If you want to add something more positive, just do that, instead of talking about "hate" ...

1. See above. 2. If you don't want to read (properly) through all the (four) pages before commenting, I strongly suggest to at least buy yourself a new sarcasm radar (if you ever had one).

(Might have to edit that post with a warning sign. Dang, I would have thought I have a better reputation by now ...)

And please stop telling people what they have to be thankful for. Smh ...

Wow dude, whereíd you get your ability to argue? The fourth grade? You didnít make any point you just told me to re read the entire thread... which Iíve already done.

I stand by previous statement. Sarcastic retorts and constant criticism is not what we are ďhere forĒ. Get over yourself.

Apart from the fact that I did make a point - criticizing the way someone argues while badly insulting him in the same sentence: no comment.

That means you quoted me wrong and therefore made me look bad on purpose, even though you knew better, just to make your entrance more dramatic. No comment.

Says the one who likes to insult people for no reason. Or, even worse, to tell them what they have to be thankful for. Well, that one gets a lol ...
