I would be really cool if Apple made a category of its in the App store for games like these. It really gets difficult to navigate through the app store trying to find things when you have all these 10 points free, 20 points for .99 and so on "apps" for sale, when you are just buying points, and not an app.

I wonder what you would call the category because this sure is not MMRPG or MMRTS.

Munkie!

Woah, calm down NomaD! It's slightly different than most of them, but i do sort of agree with you. More like an MMSG, or at least it looks like that.

I agree. I've written about this to apple. SImple solution; have your little, (IMHO,) boring MMORTSGTYPE-RVTECHGIBSONSGBYOB-RTRPSG, but make ONE G** DAMN version of it, and utilize the G** flipping damn 3 flipping point 0 firmware, and have in-game purchases for your little extra point sh*t. Clean up the G** damn app store. I'm tired of all this Extra point cancer crap.

Sorry, and excuse my frustration. And good luck to you, developer of the MMORTSGTYPE-RVTECHGIBSONSGBYOB-RTRPSG; All our base, are belong to you, forever.

actually apple will not allow purchases inside free apps.

but developers of these could easily have 2 apps. A free and a 99cent purchasing app.

the reason why this wont happen, is the visibility of having 19 apps update at once.

In all fairness, the other apps are for-pay apps and each one has a price appropriate for the item you get. This is different from the other games of this type where the store is spammed with five billion "10 Honor Points" downloads. I still understand everyone's frustration, but this isn't quite the same thing.

I'm willing to bet if we suggested an alternative model that made sense to the developer, they would change. (e.g. You get a reasonably powerful token item for the 99 cent download, then have an opportunity to upgrade further in game.) My gut feel is that the dev went this route based on the momentum that already exists from similar games.

Disclaimer: I have been suckered into downloading a few games of this type and deleted every one of them in the past. This one was very clear about what it was and looked somewhat interesting. I downloaded it when it showed up and have been playing it since. It's not a bad game.

So feel free to take what I say with a grain of salt as I may be biased.
