Sorry but no.

If the devs said 'Please download our game, check it out and post a review if you have time.' I would HAPPILY oblige.

But instead they take the bribery route 'review and you COULD win' which is really annoying as a: its tantamount to bribery and b: the AppStore gets flooded with what might be fake reviews as most people post 5* glowing reviews in the faint hope of winning something. These fake reviews skew the game for people looking at the review before downloading.

I know these devs aren't the only ones doing this shady business but I personally find it very dodgy indeed. Quite a shame as I avoid downloading games that do this whereas a 'please download and review our game' would have me checking it out and possibly posting a honest review.

Wrong. We don't ask users to give us a 5 star review. We only look for honest reviews and have already received some incredible feedback to help us in our next update. It's sad when people attack the indie devs for trying to get the word out.

After 4 months to build a game, no million dollar budgets, just a lot of hard work and passion and coming out to the community for some support with a fun contest in the CONTEST section of the forums and I'm told I'm bribing people?

Very sad indeed. Anyways I have a contest draw to hold and game updates to do, so not gonna waste my time on negativity.

You've made your point. Time to move on from this thread.

Hello all, thank you for your participation and the excellent feedback!

Results image is attached as well.

@Shiatama_0: Please post here upon receiving and activating your iTunes GC so that everyone knows there is no foul play.

Thanks to everyone who participated and we look forward to seeing you again in another future contest!

I don't see where it says post a 5 star review to win. I didn't make my review 5 stars and I had an equal chance to win compared to everyone else.
....


Congrats to the winner, and thanks for holding this awesome contest. I look forward to following Dungeon Wagon and checking out the next update when I'ts released.
