Why is Crystal Defenders $8?

The game is fun and all but $8 seems very expensive for a TD game. Is there something I am missing?

I'm not sure what you want here..

The developer decided to price is like that.

I'm not sure why it's that much, there are many other superior TD's out there that are much less.

what.

I can't speak to why something is priced the way it is. In fact, it would be unfair to say what a game is worth. I can tell you based on personal experience, the game is very deep and requires a good deal of strategy. The main hit against it are the controls which btw should be updated with a new control scheme hopefully soon.

the controls alone should put it in the 99c category !
have bought many tds but refuse to buy this until half the screen is no longer a bad looking control panel

I wholeheartedly agree with this statement about the controls. The controls are terrible and take up half the screen. On top of that, it ruins the experience because your fingers are cramped together. Hopefully, the new update fixes this.

Because it can?

If it sells at that price, it'd be crazy not to leave it at that until sales start dwindling down.

It's not 800% more awesome than Geodefense, 7 Cities, or Elemental Monster TD...
