Why the heck is Dark Raider $7.99???

I mean, who are they kidding? $7.99 is even too expensive to expect anyone to TOFTT. I was looking forward to this game coming out, but seeing how pricey it is, even if it went on sale, it would be more than I would probably pay without playing a lite version first.

Keep your friends close. Keep your enemies in the closet.

Why is it expensive??

Because some people will buy it for that price, then they'll drop to 5,99$, then 3,99$, then 1,99$ and then 0,99$.

It's hard to start from 0,99$ and raise to 7,99$. Most of the devs who tried to do that, failed.

Wait for some reviews before you judge. Dark Raider actually has good gameplay which you can't tell from looking at some screenshots.

It's also a fully implemented game and is not going to have more features tacked on later because it was rushed out the door.

Apps: Mech Pilot, Zombies HD, Zombies The Last Stand, iFishing (and all spinoffs), Puppet Jump, Pocket Farm, Dark Raider, Blue Skies, and more! (www.RockingPocketGames.com)

7.99$ ?

whats the problem.....if you cannot afford it, stick to your cheapass match3-puzzlers and one-level actiongames.

if you want to wait, wait.
its that simple and certainly no reason to whine about it.

additionally 7.99$ is not a lot of money and if your mommy or daddy do not reload your account.....what about some work in your spare time?^^

Because the creator and publisher think it is worth it.
Who are you to decide it should be less?
Don't like, don't buy.
Too expensive, don't buy.
But don't have a go at the people who made it. It's their decision alone.
