Has the game play improved greatly?

I remember the original thread for this game, seemed a lot like 99 cents should have been the normal price, if not free.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

I havnt purchased yet, but I commend the devs for sticking with it, updating, even with some very rude early iTunes reviews. Seems like their ratings have gotten alot better since updating.

Same, I'll wait for reviews. I wish devs would stop trying to make realistic graphics. The iPhone just can't pull it off.

I don't quite follow that based on the actual specs of the device, rather than the shortcomings of many 3D games that have been pushed to the App store prematurely...

Touchgrind has realistic graphics, but is limited to a top down view only. The developers in fact had planned to incorporate a 3D perspective window, but felt it took up too much screen real estate. I am all for devs trying to push the limit...
