Can't resell them at a lower price when you are done with them.

Give up your accounts rights to that game and give them to someone else. This would be completely awesome, and could raise the initial prices of apps.

I hate nothing about AppStore games.

You get what you pay for.

We are paying rock bottom prices and some of you seem to be expecting the world.

None of the problems in the OP are AppStore only, they exist in console games also.

I guess, if anything, when a developer tries to mislead people into making a purchase when they shouldn't.

That's about it in my book.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

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

Which is why passing them on to another user when you are done with them would be beneficial.
