I have recently gone indie with a couple guys and we've been working on our first game for the past month. Demanding but very cool so far
But in an effort to learn from others games that were released on the AppStore before us, we decided to not only study successful big names but also games that failed to generate the same traction, despite having a solid core gameplay. Maybe their marketing was bad or some particular IAP or feature ruined an otherwise great game.
Do you guys have any games that come to mind, games that could have been great but just missed the mark?
Double points if they're dungeon crawlers and/or strategy games
