Havent bought any yet and dont feel the need to buy either. But I`ll sure be paying something to ngmoco for this great game. Might buy a couple of $2 packs or maybe a $10 one instead

??? Because? Don't we want this game to be a success so that more like it are made? The more serious devs we can attract to the iPhone platform the better imo...

i believe that if ngmofos halved the $10 and $30 packs, they would receive wayyyy more business. id totally be down to buy a $5 pack moreso than $10. i doubt they'll ever lower it tho..even tho it makes sense..the cheaper, the more business ur likely to get. $1 apps have proved that.

hmmmmm let's pay $30 to get energy cells to play the game the way it should be played so you can get credits!

wait $30 a month for energy! $30 a month for a Data Plan for the iPhone!

hmmmmmmmmmmm something doesn't seem right...

you go ahead and waste $30 a month on eliminate

the pricing is horrendous, there is no way on earth id pay that for crippled software. a one off game payment or a monthly tarrif is fine, but to charge this amount of money and, after your few hours of game fun your back to where you started is incredible. there are plenty of free to play, pay to upgrade games around and this one has been devised, i feel, to milk the consumer for an unfair amount of money and as quickly as possible, its as bad as those useless mafia wars stylee titles. they need to rethink.

in anycase, its a reasonable game, not that outstanding.

Currently playing: Joe Dever's Lone Wolf and FM2014

ngmofos... well said.

If you guys even paused to think about it. $30 dollars can buy you a couple of amazing quality games like Doom, Asphalt 5 etc. Is this ripoff of the quake-engine even worth $30? It's a new concept, but think, people, THINK!

When gameloft comes out with Nova (with online multiplayer) and charges only $10 to play FOREVER, this game will eliminate itself nicely.
