I hope that Marmalade Play & Activision* bankrupt as soon as possible. Whoever thought that it`s a good idea to add a god damn Timer to a Track & Field Game should please reconsider that a Game where you have to actually play it to have a change to get better in it is worthless if there is a Timer in it that only does allow us a small among of retries before we have to wait to be able to play it again.

Lets put it that Way:

Besides Batman: Arkham Origins from Warner Bros The Activision Decathlon is one of my top two games that are currently running for the Biggest Piece of Shit Award if it comes to iOS Gaming in 2013.

*= Won`t happen since Activision is earning to much Money that probably nobody would be able to dumb the Company at any point, even if they totally screw up.

Thanks Sanuku! WHAT! I cannot believe that Activison has the nerve to charge for a game, yet subject paying gamers to the dreaded "timers". I agree, POS game of the year! Edges out Batman, only because it was free.

Thanks Sanuku, you totally ROCK!

I don`t have a probably with a Developer charging anything for their Game.

It`s pure madness to add in any (Sport) Game a freaking Timer that is preventing you from actually playing the Game or for God's sake even maybe enjoying it.

Activision Decathlon broke more joysticks on my C64 than anything else

I think for the sake of my ipad2, I'd better not get this

Last iOS game I bought: 6/1/15
