A year ago, people had extremely high hopes for this platform on these boards. Many people believed that games would rapidly improve, to the point where a portion of the games would be on a par with true hand-held games consoles, as well as having a good number of cheaper games designed for short bursts. However, it seems that the success of low-risk, low-development .99 cent games has completely dominated the app store. The ratio of these style of games to fully fledged games is overwhelming. Aside from a few titles, Ronlandos, a few racing titles etc., nost games are severly lacking in content, and usually lacking in even short term entertainment. I haven't bought an appstore game for about 2 months. I've checked these pages every couple of weeks to check out the new releases. What I see always makes my heart sink. Endless poorly developed, shallow, gimmicky crap. Maybe one day Square Enix will release a final fantasy game, or a big developer will release something more than a gimmicky piece of crap (RE, silent hill and MTG) designed to cash in on the name. Maybe. Until then, I'll stick with chess, tetris, and a few other half decent games amongst the piles and piles of manure.
