    It's an honest to goodness premium exclusive iphone ip. Been in my top 16 since release day. I still play it on a regular basis.

    Spent some gift iTunes funds on Sway and just love it. I've had the lite on my phone for weeks. It took a while to learn but once I got the swing of it I found I was playing the lite almost daily. Now MORE levels and critters to explore and find!!!

    I dunno, people seem to dislike the whole DLC business model, or am I wrong?

    Wrong. If it's fairly priced and a quality DLC, people will gladly pay for it. Just don't make it $0.99 per level ;) But $0.99 per world is definitely worth it (as is, Sway has 3 worlds, each with a few levels).

    Look at The Creeps! for example and how its fans love it since it gives some back life to an otherwise finished game. Similar with how Fieldrunners fans love the DLC. Thing is, those who love it often spend the time playing, while those who don't love the game in the first place spend the time whining on the forums.

    The real DLC haters are those who use pirated games as they can't get the whole game for free anymore ;)

    The thing I read about DLC the latest was actually the comments to http://toucharcade.com/2010/01/13/the-creeps-update-released-with-dlc-level-packs and http://toucharcade.com/2009/12/28/fieldrunners-1-3-update-released

    Also, many think that $0.99 is too much for one level in Fieldrunners. To me it's a bargain and I bought all of them right away, but people are so used to the whole get-any-game-for-$0.99-no-matter-the-quality philosophy, so $0.99 for just one single level seems a lot to them, which I can understand. A theme (!) on PSN or Xbox Live! is $1.99 for comparison. But as always, the complainers are the ones that usually state their opinion.

    But yeah I get your point: "don't be greedy".

    So, we'll think about it!

    (Just so you know, doing updates is just a way to be nice to your existing customers, which makes you feel good about yourself, but it doesn't generate any extra sales most of the time, apart from a few apps like Pocket God)

    @Anders:
    There will always be cheap people around who think everything above $0.99 is not worth it, but as you see yourself with your games (or Canabalt or EA board games), people don't mind paying more. TouchArcade crowds don't represent the whole world and, as I said earlier, those who love their games don't post as much as the whiners.

    Re DLC, I also read many people who think the map in Fieldrunners is overpriced, they forget it's an open map and it looks very polished. They just don't understand its beauty.

    The main problem is too many games in the AppStore are released incomplete, with devs promising wonderful stuffs in 'future updates'. That's where people start thinking with a mere 99c they can get a lifetime-free-of-update. It backfires when the game is complete yet people still want more stuffs for free.

    Now I think we're getting too far off the track and discussing what have been discussed in other threads re DLC, free updates, incomplete games, empty promises, etc :p

    Anyway, why don't you do a poll asking people if they're interested in Sway DLC? I love the game and will surely buy the DLC.

    yeah i do not care for the dls. when the dev trys to milk you for every penny. but if the price is fair im ok with it.

    i guess i think of touch pets.. when the dlc food cost more than what feeding a real dog would.. heh

    i suck at this game but give those who master it much credit.

    I guess I could do that to get the picture of how much interest there is in the TA crowd ;)

    Thing is that it is mostly up to RFA to do the actual update. I nag on them every now and then to do more updates ;)

    Lol :p

    But if I have to choose, I'd choose my first point. You see, too many people here in TA whine for anything over $0.99, yet I constantly see expensive games in the top 50. That's why I think there are many people out there who are not even TA members yet often buy expensive games.
