Mission Europa Review?

I demand to know why Mission Europa is not being reviewed by Touch Arcade... it seems like one of the most promising action RPGs on the device and maybe one of the most ambitious games yet. Surely it's worth at least a glance at the preview build. The developer seems forthcoming about offering preview builds. Come on Touch Arcade people!

Link to discussion on Upcoming Games subforum.

The developer is very dedicated and it looks to be a deep game. Maybe it seems deserving of at least a preview or a release article.

Cmon, the dev Ryan worked 1 1/2 years on this, he poured his heart and soul into it. It at least deserves that recognition.

The developer definitely deserves some recognition for Mission Europa given his active involvement in the game and TA thread IMO.

Well he's got some. Right here in the forum. If the game deserves recognition TA will catch it, they are aware of the popular forum threads and if the game maintains as much hype after release they'll probably mention it. I don't see what the big rush is, it's not even out and you're hankering for an article.

Please take the time to look at this amazing game...I have been playing it for at least 6 months..maybe 8 and each time it is a fun, fresh experience. Why would I subject myself to hundreds of days of something that I did not enjoy?
Just give it a preview...really not anything like it..
Thank you in advance!

There's no hard and fast rule.

Here's how it goes.

- Big name apps, like Spore or Star Wars will obviously get reviewed due to the interest surrounding it. These will probably push off other reviews or games.
- We likely consider reviewing the more expensive games, even less well known because good or bad, the review can be helpful due to the cost.
- We tend to also get a lot of the smaller/cheaper unknown games, but unless we actually like them, are unlikely to write up a review for it. It's usually not worth pointing out a cheap/unknown app just to say we didn't like it.
- We also try to mix up genres. A puzzle game is going to be harder to get our attention because of the sheer number of them. Apps that are relatively new or alone in their genres tend to draw attention.
- Apps that have looked interesting in preview and we've covered we'll generally review.
- Developer submissions help narrow down apps a lot, and of course screenshots/videos help catch our eye too.
- Of course, we tend to notice those that participate in the forums.
- I really feel like we're a bit behind, in that it's been a busy week or two, so I'm very behind in the emailed submissions.


And Blake has a retro fetish in case you haven't noticed, so those will get covered.

I think Mission Europa meets the above standards...... Do you?

Dont be too demanding guys. Mission Europa is pretty good, and I bet it will get covered. Ryan just needs to talk to Blake or Arn or Hodapp about it. He only talked to IMNSP if I remember correctly.

If anyone writing for TA wants a preview build, email souldragoon/Ryan. He should be able to hook you up for a preview or review copy.

Only major people working for TA though.
