Pretty underwhelmed..

Im sooo over the amount of crappy stick based-doodle titled-RTS-Tactical Turn Based-dual stick-adventure-match 3-physics-games that have flooded the app store and subsequent forums?

Seriously, its like 1 in every 20 games im bothered to actually click on a link to see...are of such a poor standard it makes me wonder...who buys this junk?

It got real crowded real quickly...it wasnt so long ago that we only had a handful of big hitters (*gameloft, ngmoco, com2us etc..) pumping them out and now...every hack and and his mac is distributing app-fodder.

I used to play my DS a lot, then the games started getting worse and worse quality, more and more 'imagine' titles started turning up and more and more turnbased, detective-poke-fantasy-enix ripp offs started coming out...and thats about the time i lost interest.

Same's happening here i rekcon...loosing interest.
No more crap apps.

If you going to start a thread like this, you really should name names. It's not about flaming, but it's difficult to have discussion if one don't understand the terms. This summer has seen some pretty amazing titles released, with more recently being announced.

The easiest way to be uber flamed is to paint with a broad brush (it's the easiest way to be a troll, too). You've got a point to make, then use specifics.

Any market is saturated with crap. That's why you educate yourself, which is what I think you tried to do joining TA.

Dragon Quest 9 on DS is the only game I've been looking forward to in a while.

Don't worry though, there are still some good apps like Gamebook Adventures, Hero of Sparta, Plunderland, Carnivores, stuff like that.
I think what you're looking at is Recent Releases which is where many people who just 'try out' the app store go :/

Have a look at Naruto RPG!
Look at Gamebook Adventures for iPhone/iPod/iPad!
I do app descriptions for free
