I find those inverted controlls confusing but looking at the comments in the appstore other people seem to enjoy that

well

We're gonna make a different smaller app propably - not a DLC content.
altrough DLC is a really nice idea - because it allows the player to shape his app the way he wants, provided that there is a choice in those DLC options. for example players can buy different weapons, vehicles.. stuff.

i wonder if there is a limitation in DLC payments - do they have to be a multiplication of 1 dollar minus a cent?

it would be nice if you could buy a bonnus level or a new gun for a few pennies

I don't actually own this game...but I'll throw in my two cents here...

Seems to me it'd be best to make the survival mode as both DLC in the original, and a new app. That way owners of the original can conveniently keep the game all in one place, and new users can choose not to purchase the story mode if they so wish.

Unfortunately, DLC payments do have to be made in multiples of a dollar, which is too bad, for the reasons that you stated. As a result, devs are beginning to provide DLC for 99c, which is not worth 99c...

we were talking here about having "survival mode" as DLC for $0.99 (which was ment to be $0.99 app anyway), not to add bazooka for $0.99 which should be worth $0.50 or whatever

this way it can drive app sales (to buy app and then to buy survuval mode in DLC), or it may not (it is simpler to buy just $0.99 survival mode than $2 app and $1 DLC which is all in all $3), and this is why DLC is - as for now - not so widely used

iLike & iRecommend: Archibald's Adventures, Blimp, Bombardiers Guild, Boulder Dash - ROCKS!, Critter Crunch, Durak, Edge, Eliss, Fieldrunners, Flick Fishing, Flight Control, Galcon, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Handy Jacks, Memovator, Quadrix, Rolando, Rolando 2, Smart Sokoban Pro, Squares, Space Miner, Totemo, Train Conductor

apple could move their bottoms and add a possibility of smaller DLC payments
