well you have to give them credit for tapping a market that people can't get enough of I guess.

I just don't see why people spend money on games like this that depend on a server, that has to be active in order to play. chances are that server will not be there in a years time or less.

although they have to be cheap to develop and are probably quite the cash cows. i would probably do it myself, if I wasn't working on other projects and things people find useful.

Looks like a far better version of Vampires Live -- which has recently developed a bug where any blood you win doesn't get added onto your total -- so have purchased this and will post some impressions shortly.

EDIT: Better than VL and edgier than Mafia Wars in terms of imagery/sound fx. Nice dark graphical style too... and since it's free and a tiny download how can you go wrong?

Do you have add codes to increase your power, etc? Or can you just accomplish things by yourself without the need to get "points" or whatever?

Right. Do I have to buy something like "respect"? Do I have to go to massive ADD ME boards? If so, epic pass.

I found it interesting how many people are addicted to making numbers go up.
That's about all these games do.

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)

Well it plays like Mafia Wars, and I like Vampire games. As simple as the game is, it's still very polished, fun and addicting for me. Good job Zynga!!!

Add me for those who still play these games.

Yeah you have to add peoples codes or them to add you to increase your clan size like all these type of games so you can do bigger missions and build up your att/def for fighting.
Plus you can only carry 1 ability 1 def and 1 movement ability per clan members you have...so you need lots of clan members to be able to attack and defend yourself.
You also start off with some points and then you get more as you level up so you can use these at the elders to get more money/blood energy clan members etc...no doubt at a later date they will add the to buy points like all these games seem to do to make money cos its free after all

Also found a bug at the mo tho cos i've added like 10 people and they show up for like 1 min then vanish again and leave me with only 4 clan members That happened on Mafia Wars as well for a bit...anyone else had that problem yet?

Deffo a bug in this game as there was in Mafia Wars a while back...It happens when you are adding people...It says such and such added and then when you go see how many clan members you have one minute they are added and then they vanish into thin air...so after adding about 50 and now at current count only having 14 show up kinda sucks...
Maybe the vamps have bitten them and they have gone off to suck blood or summit...Seems ok tho when people add you tho cos they seem to stay....
weird...anyone else having probs?

There will be paid versions, count on that. Zynga was the first company to have a "pay for the advantage" system with Poker Live! But then, I play Poker Live all the time and have never payed one cent.
