    Anyone else get kinda pissed off when dev's say that? Sure if it's a game that gives tons of content for each update, I'm good. But if a game needs bugfixes, why would anyone give that game 5 stars? Sounds like abusing the system imo.

    Maybe reword it to "Rate us on App stores" Or something less 'commanding'.

    This is apparent in most freemium titles these days. Gamevil also does this, but their games are usually fairly solid, so the scores are pretty accurate.

    Ya. Something just doesn't feel right =/

    What do you dev's think?

    I hate it when I get popups in PAID games like this. Stop it developers. We rate games when we think there good, not because we want you to have 5 star reviews on the app-store.

    Yeah. That bugs me real bad, I wish Devs would stop with that. If I see that it actually decreases my chances of rating it at all.

    no, and anyone who does get mad at it takes things too seriously.

    what's worse are the ones that give you incentive. ie: get some cash items if you rate us 5 stars or some nonsense.

    no clue. Also don't know how some of those games know that you have other apps installed to get bonus stuff (install XXX app and get more gold!)

    Yeah, I hate this in the apps I have. It shouldn't be allowed. I never rate a game if I receive this popup
