No way. Check the other games at the same price point for comparison. I don't mind supporting indie devs but they have to be reasonable.

It's worth $1.99 or less. But at $3, I would have to say no. The week I got it, I played multiple times but after a while it gets boring.

That's exactly what I'm thinking.

Don't get me wrong, the effort that went into Canabalt is clearly evident, but for the same price you could get Soosis and have a lot more to do. Or something like Doodle Jump, which has the same kind of quick, simple, game play, but for 1/3 the price.

I've already spent about $60 in the app store, and I'm trying to cut down. I'll continue to try Canabalt online, but in the meantime I'm just going to get Doodle Jump.

Thank you for the replies everyone (except drelbs).

The dev had a bunch of his friends/supporters go in the original Canabalt thread to talk up the game. I've never seen so many devs under new screen names in a thread trying to promote a game. Anyone who got the game for free like website representatives will likely support the game as well, because they arent the ones who overpaid $3 for it.

First of all, here is my receipt for paying for Canabalt-



Secondly, please stop with all the shill stuff. I checked out all your accusations in the previous thread and none of them turned up anything. Why is it so unbelievable to you that people enjoy the game?

You can get Hero of Sparta or Samurai: Way of the Warrior for 2 dollars.

I don't think 3 dollars is unreasonable at all for a game like this, but the developers have to consider the competition. For the same price, a customer can get more from another game.
