iTunes Best Swinging Games

Something seems weird with the main games page on iTunes.

Best Swinging Games has been the bottom row feature for something like 2 months now, while the section above has changed several times.

I wish I had managed to find some time to finish that swinging game I started last year!

While I am sure that this makes the purveyors of those games quite happy, I think someone at Apple needs to give that bottom row a kick and put a new category there. Might I suggest either:
  • Best Games That People Think Are Flight Control Clones
  • Best Match 3 Games with Rotatable Gravity

  • Best games that don't end with "inatown Wars", "inigore" or "ocket God".

LOL on both posts.

I agree, I noticed the swinging games a couple days ago and quickly realized that it has been there a couple months. It's not like they can't come up with some other pseudo-category on a whim.

They could even leave the category name alone, but change the interpretation of the word "swinging".

I wonder apple should make a category "Games that I never ever tried" to give a push to those with extremely poor sales

LOL! I just changed my game's name from "Card Drop" to "Card Swing" hoping it gets featured with the rest!
