ANZACS AT WAR: The Periscope rifles

My first game has been submitted to Apple, and I hope they like it! You too gamers - its a shooter from a trench, kill or be killed, fairly basic gameplay with a couple of training modes. Its $1 and I may do a free version in the new year with horrible ads for cheapskates. So yea hopefully if it gets accepted I'll be back here to say so..

Cheers!

This looks...lame. No offense. Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions.

Well I'm not sure how to take any constructive criticism from that but thanks for posting. Im not offended but I think in general if you genuinely dont want to offend someone, a good rule of thumb is to avoid telling them their products/artworks are lame. What if you were jumping to a conclusion?

Obviously people are entitled to say "hey this sucks" but to say "no offense" at the same time is contradictory and odd (lame even?).
So how to take your comment and process it as anything other than a random insult? Hmm unsure. I guess I can only advise that you don't buy it? then at least you know you haven't wasted 99c. In that way I can guarantee I'm offering you something of worth. Either a cheap game, or sound free advice?

Either way I hope I've given you something worthwhile.

As you were soldier.

You are awesome for that post. I don't know if I would have been able to be that civil with someone that said that.

Thanks. Its pretty easy to start a flame war, but thats kinda not why I make games. I do it because I enjoy it and instead of others games I squeezed this one out... This game is pretty simple but the basic mechanic is pretty sound.. But it is broken on iPhone 4 (submitted fix earlier)..argh *slap.
