Not sure about the freemium model but think I'm breaking out the NZ account to try this out.

Mate, I have to say you are on a losing battle! Paid apps are dead in terms of number of downloads these days so this is the only way it's going to go. You are going to miss out on a hell of a lot of games if you don't ever want to budge from your stance. I totally know where you are coming from but surely for your hobby, if you can enjoy a game, it's worth putting a bit of cash in?

And hey it's free to try and get a feel for if it fits with what you deem reasonable for the amount of entertainment you might get from it. In this case it can't be as bad a sink as one of those lame MMO's so you should be OK

Very reasonable comment to Mene here. I agree with you.

I also respect Mene for keeping such a strong stance against Free games. Though I'm not exactly sure what he's cutting off (Glyph Quest is free to try but $1.99 to unlock the full game). I just hope premium games are NOT becoming dead. I'd like to think as iOS gaming becomes more mainstream, consumers will become tired of the freemium model that made King and Supercell filthy rich.

There are still plenty of premium games that come out, and some that seem to use this free to try model that Glyph Quest and others use.

I personally am down to try a free game because if it sucks or is unreasonable, it's gone.

That said, my NZ account is getting some use tonight...

i disagree , and i will keep ignoring freemium games and buying premium to be part of this uphill battle

with games like oceanhorn / battle supremacy / sky gamblers / Scallywags / coloursheeps / Pinwar / kinghunt / Tinywing HD / Deus Ex / Kingdom rush / castle raid 2 /
and all the games from forsaken media with cross platform mutiplayer & icloud save synchronize of IOS +OSX , i dont think freemium is the only way out

I am loving this game!
The art is great. Loving the tactical element of the raids. Really fun so far! Earning plenty of currency just by playing.

I don't understand the hate for free games. If it is done right, what's the problem? Tiny Tower for example.
If you don't like it just delete it. If you do like it , throw the dev's some cash so they can feed their kids. There are many "premium" games that are garbage, yet you had to pay for them. There are many freemium games that are just cash grabs, just delete them.
In the end, it is less about the payment model and more about the developers. I support good developers, and that includes many point on the spectrum between free and paid.
