Meltdown $4.99 ---> $.99

I've had this since its release, and it's a pretty good procedurally based shooter. The only problem is the last update messed the game up, and the devs have no plans to fix it anytime soon.

Just like the OP said, the latest update messed it up and they won't fix it. The upgrade system doesn't work and without it you can't keep going forward as the enemies keep getting stronger. Great game I honestly think it is a shame, don't buy this guys just my two cents.

Dang it. I picked this up 5 minutes before the OP. How do you know it will never get fixed?

The developers have basically said they have no intention of fixing it. Ammo regeneration and health regen, as well as a few other things are broken. It's worth $.99, but nothing more in its current state. Sad to say I dumped about $15 into it, because I wanted to support the team.

Why did they say they won't fix it? That sounds pretty... rude. Especially when you get so many complaints. I remember this game having glowing reviews. Weird how they would end up not caring about it anymore.

I think it was poor sales on the iOS version. The steam version, seems to receive much more attention. That's a lot of these games , though. They do poorly on ios, get ported to PC or PS4, and all the attention from the developers hoes there.

Wow, thanks for the warnings. I'll take this off my wish list. Couldn't they just replace it with an older version of the app that actually works? So weird to leave the busted version up.
