Top10 games that didn't live up to what you wanted aka app/game purchase regrets

10. Orc vengeance (maybe my inspiration) further reminders I don't like diablo
9. Storm strikers ( didn't quite live up after danmaku u limited)
8. My hero - wth is this? Played if for like 5 min
7. Rinth island - this game is always first choice when deleting for memory
6. Battleloot Adventures - same as RI I dunno just not very appealing
5. Paper Monsters- ok its time I said it this game sucks.. Too floaty and dumb
4.gridrunner - still wonder how and why people like this game
3. Spellsword - I though this would be cool ended up being boring and lame
2. Angry Birds Rio - what was I thinking do I really need 4 versions of this game
1. Ok I'll make it a tie cuz I just thought of another and ran out of space. Infinity blade 2 - this game got old fast atleast the first one was something new this was just meh. And finally Super Brothers S&S yea I know its won all these awards and what not but I just don't care about it I tried tk play it and i don't like it I have no incintive to try to keep playing this game because it's just flat out bad... Yes I have made it pretty far its not that i can't figure out what to do its that I dont care anymore to begin with. Go to this hallowed out rock egg chased by sumthig turn ur device around, tweet what I'm doing? Oh and then go listen to that dude in the options menu it's not that great or mind-blowing and I wasted like 5 bucks on it.

1. Trenches II - developers promised updates but it hasn't been updated since December 2011. Terrible support.

2. Dead Trigger - good graphics but horrible gameplay and then the devs made the game F2P like 2 weeks after.

3. N.O.V.A. 2 HD - campaign was ok, multiplayer was bad plus it didn't have iPad specific features like NOVA HD had.

4. Flight Control Rocket - an IAP bombshell that ruined a great franchise because of EA.

5. Angry Birds Rio - even though I got it for free, its basically just Angry Birds. Nothing new and not worth $1.

I agree with your sentiments about Paper Monsters, Spellsword, and Sword and Sworcery. Especially disappointed by S&S.

My hero, Rinth island, Battleloot Adventures, gridrunner, Angry Birds Rio.

Agree with OP on those. And actually the entire Angry Birds series amazes me how boring games like that are so popular.

Sex Positions I bought it for free just cause. 😰 But I upgraded to see everything without restrictions and all the pictures disappeared. Please don't ask me why I bought the app. I'm 14. 😰 Just wanted to know some stuff before. Never mind
Don't worry I'm 26 and probly would have done the same thing...

Glad people agree with with some of my games, others here listed are good as well..

Glad I never gave in and purchased Jeaporady hd...

Another one is fling and roll or whatever that crappy game was... With th lizard and tounge etc...

Also unfornuately I have to say Ascension: CotG it's not that I don't like card games just couldn't get into it.. :/

Dead Trigger, was fun at first, then got old fast.

Outfoxed. Same as above.

Um... angry birds? Don't get the hype. Boring to me.

Faster. Boring. Then went free like two days after I bought it.

Um I'll come back as I think of more.
