aight thanks.... btw at and app store price point, most of the premium games are worth it, but if you were to buy all the games that were worth it, then everyone would be broke except for the game companies and those holding their stocks haha. its mostly if it is something you want to pay...

btw, its not really a bad thing... their sales are just so they can give popularity to old games, which means theey want u to buy it. Holidays are just an excuse for the sales

This could happen for a number of reasons such as the company going out of business, or as you mention the game is pulled from the App store.

As unlikely as that may be today, this week, or in 4 years - the possibility still exists and the software license you paid for is indeed perpetual and should not be limited by how long Company X supports and provides access to the software.
There's no such thing as a perpetual license in software -- the publishers reserves the right to cancel it or change the terms at any time. Again, read the fine print. The difference is, of course, that with disks you have a physical product that they can't literally take away from you. But that doesn't mean that you "own" the software, which is the word dyscode was using.

i dont condone stealing but to those that think by having the full game via IAP prevents pirating, it still can be done easily.

I agree more talk about the game from those that have it. The iTunes reviews on this games will be useless because it will be just people giving it 1 start because they are mad they can't steal it.

Lol that's a downside isn't it? What's to stop people from mass-rating it 1 star?
Most sensible people won't decide what game to buy based on the purely garbage reviews in iTunes, but a lot of people will still read them anyways, after all the reviews are right there on the buy page.

People are never happy unless they have something to bitch about, first it was "No Retina support? i'm not buying it then" Then it was "Why doesn't every developer use the Unreal Engine so everything looks as good as Infinty Blade?" and now we have a new reason to hate new releases cause they have in app purchases...

I thought these threads were to post impressions of the games? not for whining people bitch about stuff, I have wasted 30 minutes of my life trawling through this thread hoping to find some impressions of the game and have probably encountered about 5 or 6 posts that actually mention the gameplay mechanics, graphics and suchlike or indeed anything worthwhile pertaining to the game in question.

Honestly if you guys are that unhappy about having what is essentially a lite version of the game without having to wait for the developer to release a lite version so you can try before you buy then why dont you go and start an argument on the comments thread on the Youtube video of it? Thats where most of the kids hang out these days.
