Games that did not do well as expected

Just curious. Are there any game you know that did not sell well, too over hype or not given good review that caused the developer to disappear or quit making games?

with so many new games everyday, do you think good old games like Rolando still have a share in the market?

Interesting question. I've been wondering about that too.

I thought that Tilt to Live should have been the greatest thing since sliced bread, perhaps achieving Doodle Jump or Angry Birds status.

It's still highly acclaimed but for me, this game got everything right.

Rolando.

HUGE amount of hype over that game. Hype to the point that nothing could live up to and it didn't sell well. That's why they haven't updated it in forever.

The same goes for about every ngmoco game until recently. They seem to be holding back news about upcoming games to tone it down a little. Early one, though, there would be all kinds of obsession around here and when they didn't get the greatest, longest, most advanced game ever created (for $.99, of course) they got pissed and gave bad reviews and bad mouthed the games on here.

how do older games like Rolando get noticed by gamers on iDevice? there are so many games now, is very hard to find them.

i think apple should have its own game event just like for music for ipod / mac

What's wrong with Armada? the developers left the scene?
