Most Improved Game? Which Game Improved The Most With Game Updates?

I have one nomination...

Quantum Collapse - It started off as an extremely solid RTS with some small flaws/issues. But it's first update added so much to the game. Skirmish mode with 3 AI personalities, tons of options, 11 maps, unit selection, group assignment, minimap use, updated performance, typos and lettering fixed. It really is an astounding amount of improvement in just one update.

Can you think of any other game that deserves to be nominated as most improved?

3-D Vector Ball. The developer has really done a nice job with this game, it was one of the first apps I bought a year ago when I got the 3G and I really didn't care much for it then. The area to move the paddle around was too big so you could never seem to get to those corners where the ball goes, you could only move it through tilting (very clunky then for the previous reason), and you couldn't really do much physics-wise with the ball like you can with the online version. Since then the developer has shrunk the arena size, added more realistic physics so you can put real spin on the ball, improved the game's overall aesthetic and look, and added an option for controlling the paddle with your finger - among various other improvements like a much better-looking interface. I actually quite enjoy the game now for whenever I want a little proven gaming fun.

Kudos to them for the work they put into making it a quality app.

It was so limited at first. I was one of the people that bought it when it only had 1 map and 2 modes. The game has evolved significantly and for the better.

Currently Playing: Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, Summoner Wars

Pocket God - not really a game, but gotta admit, they took a boring app that had nearly nothing but 1-star reviews (and nevertheless, I bought it ), and turned it into an app that's been in the top 10 for weeks.

Spawn Illuminati - ok, still not a game, but they've added a ton of features and a much nicer looking GUI. Kudos to them.

iDracula - went from having one arena, a good amount of weapons, and two modes, to 3 arenas, 5 modes, and even more weapons (correct me if I'm wrong on any of this).

Bounce On - they've been updating it every since of the beginning. Added 3 new worlds, need I say more?

Blue Skies by Egerter Software. Boat load of update goodness! If you've played the very first release, you'd know what I mean.

I will also agree with the above post for Fieldrunners and Vector Ball.

Vector Ball is a good one too. I'll give a mention to Superball 3.

Super Ball 1 was a solid game, but 2 came out, updated everyone free and played like a much better and completely different game, then 3 came out, updated everyone for free again and played like a completely new and absolutely incredible game, the best breakout variant I've ever played by far.

CS.one. The update isn't out yet, but I've had the honor of playing the updated version and it is at least 100% better. I loved it before, but now it's a classic.

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy."
