Why aren't YOU playing Coverfire?

[Update] Price has been dropped following feedback posted in this thread.

Question: Why aren't YOU playing Coverfire HD (iPad only)?

iTunes Link: http://toucharcade.com/link/http://p...412358465&mt=8

- It's a good, tough, retro-inspired arcade maze/shooter game
- The price is pitched optimally for an iPad-only game of this type
- Buying it will potentially inspire other independent developers to specifically target the iPad market


I am not associated with the game Coverfire or the developer. I have bought the game and I currently have the highest score on Game Center. I'd like to see more people playing this game.

Post your reason for not buying Coverfire. Some example reasons could be:

"I'd like to try a lite version first"
"The graphics look a bit too retro for me"
"It sounds too hard"
"Not many people are playing it. Why should I be any different?"

The real reason I don't own this game is because this is the first I have heard of it. However, I can tell you that I am interested now because it has one thing I look for in an app. A recommendation.

Now that said I don't think I'll be rushing to purchase this, I have never played the game it is supposed to play like, and I'm not sure I understand how it works from the description and screenshots.

I'm sure its worth $5 but with all the games I currently have on my iPad I'm not sure I'd purchase the game with the limited information I have.

I am not playing cover fire because there isn't a lite version to try. I love the look and the idea behind it, just not sure if I would enjoy it enough for a purchase.

Serious question - are you not playing it because you bought it and don't like it, or are you not playing it because you didn't buy it? If you didn't buy it, what makes you think it's horrible?

It's iPad only. The graphics are retro and the gameplay looks boring. I've never heard of it. The icon and menus are unappealing. And the controls look unoptimized for a touchscreen.

There was going to be a special prize for this answer. It's behind that small crumb of sawdust behind you, just over there.

Retro or not, looks terrible to me.
