Also funny is the price, $7 when there are about 100 other breakout type games out there. Well at least there is a lite version... oh that ones 99 cents (you suppose Apple forced them to charge for a lite version like the iphysics folks? ).

I suspect a price drop will be arriving in a few days... I don't know if the devs of that game know how the App economy works... nothing above $2.99 if it isn't from a major developer sells...

Frighftully good

Hiya,

I'm the developer of BallZup.

Just thought it was worth saying - if the name didn't already give it away - that the description is very tongue in cheek. Sorry if that didn't fly well with you, but you know, the game's named after slang for making a mistake, so it goes with the territory really.

Admittedly, it's probably slightly parochial, but I'm English, so there you go...

As for the price, I thought long and hard about what tier to go out on and it wasn't an easy decision in the end. It's only 50 pence more expensive than a pint of lager where I live, and tbh, that seemed like a good enough price for a few month's work. I don't honestly believe it's practical for any serious dev to charge much less and recover much in the way of cost and I really don't want to be sat fighting with a lot of 99cent bits of abandon-ware... We'll see, I may be completely wrong!

Anyway, just thought I'd pop in and say hi, as I'm a lurker on here anyway. I hope a few of you do check out the game!

Expect a lot more games from us over the next few years.
