The best games out there still have oodles of 1 star reviews from fools who have 5 bytes of free space giving 1 star to the game because they can't install it. 1 star reviews from idiots is just part of doing business. Simply put, your app is either good enough to drown the 1 stars out with good reviews or it's not. Moves like blocking all touches tells me the publisher assumes it's not.
Your choice of words tells me it'd probably be fruitless arguing the point - pussy? Really? - but let's just leave it by saying I think "If you'd just make good games, they'd sell" is one of the stupidest arguments the internet's ever come up with. It helps, but it [b]is not[b] and never has been a guarantee - what sells is not automatically good, and what doesn't sell is not automatically terrible. Anyway, way too off-topic now.

I wanna play this on my iPod Touch. If there are wait timers then maybe I'm not missing anything after all.

Fightback looks great. Hopefully any bugs have been ironed out since it took so long and that IAPs have been slightly adjusted or are at least fair. It looks like Streets of Rage for the Genesis except that there are 100 floors rather than 8 or 9 levels where you couldn't continue. This and Cut the Rope 2 are my only definite downloads tomorrow/Thurs...

A good arcade-type brawler, pulled down hard by timers. I guess some will like it that it's free though.
