Ummm no Game Center?, But it has OF? Why?, I feel that for a game to be big it needs Game Center. And i feel that the devs of this game have let what looks to be a perfect game down.

Take a look at the top 25 for Australia, Feed Me Oil, Tiny Wings, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Rio, Icebreaker, Cut the Rope, Seasons, Deal or No Deal,Doodle Jump, Dino Cap, PvZ, Pocket God. Thats 13 apps from 25. So if i stop here people are going to say. "Well 12 apps don't have it how have they done it hey?" Well out of the 12 left over apps 3 are not games so don't have GC. That makes 9, and from those 9 we have tetris which is EA who don't need GC to get popular. so that means 17 out of 25 apps have GC, Proving that developers and Users feel that it is a must have feature.

I will purchase the game as i enjoyed line runner but i would love to see GC included in a future update.

Mmm, yeah, I am sure it is purely the addition of Game Center that has rocketed those games to the top and not their game play

Yeh, Sure those games are all good, With the accept'ion of deal or no deal. But i have a feeling that they would be lower if it was not for GC compatibility.

Default No GC no buy

Especially for all highscore related games I follow one rule upfront

no GC = no buy

I want to compare my scores with some friends
and as GC turned out to be most accpeted/integrated service
thatīs the only service Iīll use.

I donīt want to deal any longer with several other services like Crystal/OF
registering new nicknames , remember log in passwords etc
and have a fragmentation of my higscores/friends to compete with


...just my personal 2cents

Now that's some interesting math. You feel that Tetris and the three non-games should count as having game center because ...why...they don't need gamecenter?

The fact that Tetris doesn't need gamecenter is an argument against your point, not an argument supporting you. EA feeling that they don't need it is not them saying it is a must have feature.

It looks interesting, but I am not sure the developer's smartest move was to start off with some guy - most people have ever heard of - from a website - most people have ever heard of - insulting the most popular iPhone game of all time.

I see no reason why this is a bad thing.
