Another game that was released just a few days ago goes down the drain, and free. It's insane. Those pirates are becoming a major annoyance on iOS. Just a small group a while ago, now a big heap of criminals.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

You can pull the pirates card on any media item, but I think with the volatile nature of the App Store, this is more a case of "Not enough exposure."

That's the case with 90% of hidden gem failures on the App Store.

Why are pirates to blame? If anything is to blame IMO it's the competition. XCOM ate the lunch of a lot of devs and this game didn't show on the boards until after the wednesday night & thursday rush of new games.

It doesn't help either that this specific game is quite a lot like several others I've played on iOS.

But devs get antsy if they don't do well the first week or so and honestly I don't blame them for wanting to do a quick free promotion to get some reviews in and hopefully cash in on all their work.

If pirating is such an issue, shouldn't they changes things with iTunes and the App Store?

Not a single review on the App Store. Yeah, pirating or not, don't think this one's gotten much visibility. I'll check it out.

Looks a lot like the game 'gravity maze' to me. Not that that's a bad thing. I love these grim & grey type games

This is actually a very good game..Don't know why it's not doing well and haven't got some press reviews..I just wish there are other ways to advertise an app..
