Do you want to cry about it? It is obvious that they play the game. Why would they bother posting about it if they didnt play it?

How is that obvious, when neither have made comments regarding the gameplay itself, and when both of them are advertising the same game in their signatures? And by the way, your previous post, which you yourself claimed was "off-topic" within the post itself, doesn't make this (nor this one) one any less off-topic.

Playing Gears was among the finest gaming experiences - electronic or not - that I've ever had. So good, in fact, that I'm reluctant to start the very last level in Caverns until it has been confirmed that more levels (either free or dlc) will be added to Gears in the near future.

What do like or dislike about Gears? Favorite levels?

What are you talking about? Im a spammer? I dont have an iPhone 4 with a blue bumper? First, the signature: I buy everything I like, apps and games, and I try to help those games here on the forum adding them to my signature, and also happens that i love the best and most underrated game on the appstore, silverfish and want it to sell so we get more updates. So yes im advertising it, along with STYJ, and more users, simply becuase we fell in love with that great awesome game, cant you understand this?

And now, the real thing, my own honor: What makes you say Im a spammer and I dont even have an iPhone? (and thats the last thing i will say about this for the threads sake) I post here a complaint because I know that the devs stops by on this forum and maybe Im heard and they fix this issue, the only issue i have, of this great game, which is also challenging. Waiting for the update to continue playing

Game Impressions


I've played a few "ball rolling" based games, and this one shoots off the top like no other. Beautiful sound, graphics, design and concept, quick play structure, at least for the first levels, and the option to use either swipe or tilt, with achievements to differentiate them.

This is a great game all around, a proper mobile game and a must have for your iOS device for all taste and ages.
