I guess the crazy people spending $30 bucks on boxes of energy make up for the people not spending a dime... Its like their picking up the bill, lol let them, its called natural selection. Upgrading is just a gimmick; you still play for free!

Anyone what the hell does TS do? Increase damage? I just got the sniper, but the guy dies so fast its pissing me off.

It's not really aim assist, it shoots automatically for you.

And Ngmoco is brilliant... people can't help but spend money on this stuff. You're just jealous you didn't think of it first.
Yea I'm jealous that my company didn't think of a way to nickel and dime customers with a generic FPS and Dog game.

Oh wait I don't have a game company and I just play games..

Excuse my ignorance, but i just got the game yesterday and still figuring a few things out. How do the power cells work? Do they recharge or do you have to buy more or what? What do they do other than allow you to get more energy? What happens if you run out of power cells?

I finally got my award for being in the top 10! I'll never make 1st place though, so I won't aim for that.
Gotta get that award myself - it isn't going to be easy to make it to the top 10!

Which do you want? Tons of high quality games in different genres with tons of play time, or a few hours of energized Eliminate where you earn a few thousand credits?

I would choose the games. But that's just me. I'm a complete cheapo. I'm fine with the free content of Eliminate. Asphalt 5 and TouchPets pass the time in between charges. (And having a life where I'm not *always* sitting at the computer )

Anyways, which should I get once I have enough credits? Antimatter gun (500 credits) or Rocket Launcher (450)?
Well it's good because I'll get way more than 30 dollars of amusement out of being able to level up for the amount of time that 30 dollars of power cells buys.

Different people assign different value to their leisure time activities. I'm in a good enough position in life that I can afford to spend 30 dollars on a game that I like. I've spent more than before that on games that are not nearly as great as Eliminate without even blinking an eye. For whatever reason, the iPhone has become a platform that people are unwilling to pay prices that would be considered perfectly reasonable on any other system, and as a result, many (in fact most) games lack the type of polish, quality, and feature sets that you find on consoles where developers can spend enough money on development to deliver a superior product.

Ngmoco has managed to create one of the best and most polished games on the iPhone, and they're giving it away completely for free to those who are unwilling or unable to pay for the optional energy packs. I am willing and able to pay for them, and I believe that hard work and a quality product deserves compensation, so I will pay

As for the weapons, I'm not really a fan of either of them. Give me the classic assault rifle any day

I dont get the people flipping out about prices. Honestly, buy the $10 pack, and you will never have to put more money into this game. Non-energized matches are JUST as fun as energized matches, its all in your mind. Use the power cells to upgrade, nothing else. I probably play 3-5 energized matches a day, but tons more that are not energized.

The Anti-Matter Jet is a waste of credits, some people seem to like the Rocket Launcher for cheap kills but its downfall is most of the time you'll be reloading.

It annoys me how some people like to generalize others if they spend some extra $$ on a given feature of a game with comments like "have no life......sit at PC all day....weigh 500lbs......have bacne...etc..."

Still, that was only one match of many as I recall...

I had auto-shoot on in the Canadian version, but when I re-downloaded it, it was turned off and I left it like that. I like having to shoot myself.
