I'd already have RAGEQUIT her life!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

The only time that I gave my iPad the Rihanna treatment was sitting next to my girlfriend, playing a couple of async games of Ascension Chronicle of the God Slayer [CoTG]. I had just started playing CoTG and was playing a 2P game against jnt325.

All of the cards he played and the Centre Row all conspired to torment me. When he managed to flip over and then buy a particularly good card, which I wanted, I screamed a string of expletives, thumped my iPad and hurled it across the coffee table in exasperation.

I then had to endure a conversation with my girlfriend on whether I would ever treat her the same way. Although it was tempting to ask her to refer to the Chris Brown police report, I informed her it was just a momentary thing and I was already irritable at that moment. Fortunately, she didn't mouth, "It's just a game", thus I have no pending manslaughter charges above my head.

The only other time in recent memory that I raged hard over a game was during a trans-Atlantic flight end of 2005 to NYC to see an (ex) friend. I was playing an on-board quiz with my fellow passengers and on the last round I narrowly won by 1 point over 'Emma'. I unbuckled my safety belt, stood up arms aloft, and was just about to bellow, "In your face, Emma! IN YOUR ******* FACE!", when I noticed the rather attractive woman sat next to me, recoiled away in horror.

No mile-high club =/

Marathon f@@ing infinity, between overly sensitive controlls and a camera that re senters every time u move, and the colostriphobic corridors and ridiculious maze of level I deff rage quit several time, but I said I would beat the entire marathon series before halo4, and I did it, but the ending is just wtf WTFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow what a great game and an amazing story, way better and more complex than halo, but that ending was so confusing, did I win? I had adrenalin pumping and was all like WWWWWWWWWWWWTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTFFFFFFFFFFFFFF for well over a week after word, and then I read all the theories of what had happened, and I think I just finished one of the greatest games ever...

I've forgotten the name of the game, but you had one life. I mean it, literally one single life. When you died, it was game over forever, at least until you deleted and reinstalled it. I raged after been force...quitted .

Wind up knight was one of my favourite games of 2011. A real precision platformer. Finished all levels with S and wo IAPs. Expect for the final knight mare. But anyway I switched devicessso never got to complete it.

For my money I basically get jack all.

The customer support is crap, the maps are copied and pasted, they hire free labour over people who actually want to help and have the time to help, the only people that get hired are usually fired in days, the only people that get hired are usually people who fake being helpful then do nothing but dish out hypocritical judgements as admins, they have rude staff like no other game, the newest game is dying faster than any MMO I have ever seen and they just don't get th blindingly obvious reasons why it's dying and foolishly believe a free version will save it.

Also I had a serious case of harassement, I reported it to their support and they told me to contact some one called SNK... Now who SNK is I have no idea, is that even a full name or an acronym? I have no idea...
this is a complete farce.

They don't even bother to help you recover lost accounts, say a name of some one you never heard of to ask for help but don't even bother how to contact them and that is the SUPPORT EMAIL...

As a paying customer I am absolutely disgusted with this.

So yeah, by god am I tempted to rage quit hard, and leave appropriate app store reviews to suit.

Actually, I wasn't going to go for a refund but after typing that out it really does look appealing. Think il collect some evidence tomorrow and take all my money back from apple, can't be having any of this at all.

The only reason I'm carefully considering a refund or not and not going for it right now, is because I had one only last month for IAP in another app where the customer support was bad, though considering it wasn't even as bad as the support this one has I don't think apple can refuse me.

I want to swear, but I'm not going to lower myself to the immaturity of the service I am receiving, the biggest effect I can make on them is filling my iTunes wallet back up.

I spent a lot, a lot, a lot of christmas money on this game and wow... I got OWNED HARDER than a rock falling off the top of the empire state building.

Do yourselves a favour and don't download graal for IOS, you will hate it eventually.

You don't want to know how much money I have given to this appaling company and its horrible customer support ....

edit: Applied for a refund on the lot. Most of it I am legally entitled to thank god, but I hope apple investigate and refund me for the little rest that i'm not... only a particularly unreasonable person would read the email I sent them and ignore the plainly obvious issues.

I should have seen the obvious with the fast rate Graal Zone is dying off at considering it was only just released.

If I get a refund it will be large enough for me to buy a round for all of us on this thread at least twice over. (Hypothetically speaking of course)

This game has made me dislike what I once saw as the virtues of IAP. The system is SO open to abuse by scrupolous companies.
SNK Playmore?

Heh...could be wrong, but I think it was called One Single Life.

That's it...and what do you know, I own the sequel as well (just searched for it in the store on my new iPad...I can't use the previous purchases button because it crashes my damned device)!

Time to redownload.. I'll have to wait to play it again. Gotta be at my gaming peak before I jump back in
