TouchGrind or Fieldrunners?

I don't know which one I should get. Both are 5$, TouchGrind is currently on sale so its price will be increased after Black Sunday. Fieldrunners doesn't seem to get on sale soon.
I already have TapDefense as a TD game on my iPod, is Fieldrunners so much better to be worth the 5$?
Is TouchGrind worth it? I mean I like skateboarding. Are its tricks realistic?

i think you should get fieldrunners first and then think about touch grind but field runners has a lot of replay value and touch grind is hard to get used to but it is worth a look. and the tricks are really realistic. but this is just my opinion.

Personally, both games are overrated.
Fieldrunners is beautiful, but even TapDefence gives you more value.
TouchGrind is just a toy, also beautiful, bot not really a great game.
And both games also have tricks to cheat (you will find both here in
the forum)

But this is very very personal
Save your money and wait for fantastic things to come.

^^ I disagree. And how can touchgrind be overrated? It's been out less than a day, we don't know how well it will sell yet. I would say that you need to get
both. Fieldrunners and touchgrind are both great games. Fieldrunners has been at 4.99 forever so don't expect a price change. Touchgrind is expected to go up in price soon, so you should just pick whichever one you want, but then get the other sometime soon. I prefer touchgrind for quick 1-10 minute sessions, and then fieldrunners for maybe hourlong games. Both devs seem really committed so they will both be recieving updates based on user response. Take your pick.

Fieldrunners has very high replay value. And in the end, that's what you should decide by.

I have both and so far Touchgrind is pretty awesome, accurate and fun. It's more like entertainment than a game though, so I doubt I'll be playing it as long as I have Fieldrunners. Touchgrind might be a blast for a while but in the end it'll get old and Fieldrunners won't.

Anyway, yeah, just get Fieldrunners. I don't think touchgrind is worth the $5 anyway... maybe 2-3... (it's pretty limited on what it can do)

I agree you should get both its hard to tell which one you would like

I have been playing touchgrind for days and still can't play good.

So I pretty much load it up and play till I get frustrated and close it out

Its an awesome game, and if you love to skateboard or fingerboard and you can catch on playing good then I would get it.

If you don't like both then you may or may not like it

fieldrunners is a good game, easy to play

I just load it up and play till its game over.

get some td-game with depth and buy besiegement or get tap defence for free instead.

fieldrunners is completely overrated....nice graphics. thats about it....gameplaywise its at the bottom of the list.
so get touchgrind and a cheaper and better td-game instead. then you have both.

Sometimes, when something is popular, it gets bashed simply for that reason.
Get fieldrunners
