Default Quantum Galaxy by Miles Godspeed




Does anyone have a clue what this is about? It seems this is the fourth version of the same game. He keeps pulling the previous version and releasing it under a slightly different name.

Yeah, I think it's kind of scammy. Think the games been "out" under different names for at least a year. I'd steer clear.

It was great when it was first released; a nice action-packed little indie title. But now, how many versions of the same game need to be on the appstore at the same time?

He's actually pulled the game several times and re-released it everytime with a different title.

By pulling it and rereleasing it, isn't this guy also screwing over those who bought it originally as far as being able to redownload or get updates?

Come to think of it, I think I got it when it was free once, but never downloaded it.

No and yes. The game can still be downloaded from purchase history (at least the Quantum Legacy HD version I checked), but yeah no updates.

Weird. Someone needs to have his or her developer privileges stripped. Different versions of this app have been "New and Noteworthy" at least twice...I wonder if this is another attempt.

OK, now that's amusing. Crappy, but still kind of amusing in a sad way.

I just checked my library, and sure enough, I have a copy of Quantum LEGACY HD with the EXACT SAME icon... wow.

There was also "turbo". I can't open previous purchases; it's crashing again.

It isn't funny. The first time it was pulled it was because it was released free. A subsequent version made "New and Noteworthy", which gurantees SOMEONE bought it.

How the hell can Apple allow this crap to persist? It isn't this app I care about but, dammit...

:blood boiling:

I'm going to be gone for a bit, lest I incur the wrath of the banhammer.

I blame Apple. Idiots don't know a damn thing about a consumers' digital rights. And iTunes being the POS it is doesn't help.
