    Hey I bought Urban Tycoon in the beginning of November. I know it's going 3-D in December but the game description says it is on sale until version 2.0 (a badly needed update) hits app store in November. So where is it?!!!! I know the dev checks these forums so answer my question. (or anyone else who knows). Thanks!

    Oh and where are the weekly updates?! There has not been one.


    UPDATE:

    LMAO!!!!!! I pissed them off!!! The price of Urban Tycoon is now $ 1, but they removed the update part of the description. But we still go ripped off. Here is what they now put:

    Developers Note: Urban Tycoon will be upgraded to the 3D version very soon. Leading up to this major update we are slashing the price of Urban Tycoon by 50%.

    The developer used to come here and visit the forums to ask for feedback and while some offered it most members here ripped him a new asshole over spending the price of a coke on his game that apparently didn't meet their expectations. If I was the dev I wouldn't come back either.

    do you even think 2.0 will come out

    would he spend money on a unity engine?

    he has our money already

    the game doesnt run

    he is probably operating as a different name

    i would love for the develop to prove me wrong, and update the game to some functionality

    this has actually curbed my buying at the app store
    so it negatively affects everyone if this is an abuse

    if an update does not come by December...I am going to report it to Apple as Abuse, so at least they can halt payment checks
    one alternative would be a class action lawsuit, as Apple has all his information, and if it turns out to be fraud, we might have legal standing

    but please..Developer...Prove me wrong..cause i would much rather enjoy your game, then try to fight with you

    im just hoping he is busy working on an update
    but his silence is unsettling

    Wow! This may be the single dumbest comment I have ever read on these forums. You buy a game a month ago for all of $1.99 and have the audacity to say that if it is not updated that you are going to report it to Apple as Abuse or consider a class action suit?!? Do you even know the first thing about a class action suit? I do. Do have even the slightest understanding of fraud or did you just pick up a few legal phrases on Law & Order and decide to throw them around for effect?

    Grow up. You spent a whole $1.99 for a game and don't like it. Move on.

    I've long been waiting for "the" update as well. Having Sim City come out just around the corner, maybe the dev is really trying to come up with something that will be competition against Sim City? I know if I was a smaller developer that had come up with an app without any real competition, knowing "Goliath" is just around the bend, I'd be hard at work getting my troops in order. Ya know? So I say sit patiently and see what happens. To my recollection, there has been at least one update since it's debut.

    Im sorry but Fraud is Fraud...in the broadest sense, a fraud is a deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual.
    if the developer said the game was this and that, and it wasn't...and never corrects/updates the game to his original or equivalent...then that to me..is Fraud
    I dont care about $1.99
    but if the developer sold thousands of copies....that means he lied to thousands of people...

    i'm not going to get over a flame war over it with you
    i just want to hear from the developer

    The deveoper is an asshole who ripped thousands off; we all know that.

    The updates won't come. Don't even bother posting about them.

    Well the developer's forum name is TouchSoft, and they haven't been making many posts lately so maybe your right..... but I don't think we should jump to conclusions.

    Glad I skipped this one, but for one I used good judgemet on I've had lots of "promises" from developers in game descriptions that I find their game/app icons in the last page of my iPhone like a dusty little cemetary back there.

    I agree it's a total rip off by Touchsoft to not update at all. This is why i jailbreak i mean it's not legal but until the app store gets a little more credability it's fine with me. Because why should i pay like 2$ for a #$%# game like Urban tycoon for false promises. I mean i got as a cracked app then kept it for some time because although you can't update cracked apps if they ever made it better then i would have reason to actually buy it but until that day comes i remain extreemely cautious.

    Think of it as a good lesson learned for 2 bucks... Don't buy a game based on promises of what will come. Especially when the info/screenshots posted before the debut show a huge lack of gameplay...

    I never played it, but seriously, how bad can it have been to upset people over $2? Last week, I was on my way to work, I bought a $2 cup of coffee at Starbucks, then spilled it and didn't get to finish it because the guy at the counter didn't press the top all the way down over the cup to seal it. I didn't ask fellow customers to start a costly class action lawsuit over a cup of spilled coffee. Besides, I've wasted more than $2 on crappy games before (anyone ever play the $60 version of Spider-man 3 on X-box360???)

    LOL, this isn't even aobut the game anymore, it's a personal attack against the developer now. Can't we redirect some of this negative energy to get DSEffects to stop making games instead? Haha.

    its more like this

    you walk into starbucks, you see advertisements for this amazing coffee and muffin, so you pay your money for it, lets say $1.99 which could be a steal
    but when they hand it to you, you get a cold cup of coffee, not 20 oz, but maybe 1.5 oz, and a small, stale, half eaten muffin
    and they send you on your way

    and you can't talk to the people, telling them 'yo, this isn't what i paid for'

    that is what it feels like

    look at all the reviews, all the positive ones are saying, 'once this game is updgraded, it is going to be amazing'..yet it has never been updated except once,..

    i think the developer, who is probably still active on these forums, needs to say something..he is the only one that has the ability to correct this

    Never rely on promise. The updates may never come for all manner of reasons so judge the game by its current state, not by what is said to come. Oh and you can do something yourself if you want to make a game yourself ^^ Heck if anyone wants to I will make the graphics for it :p

    Just to clarify, I did not buy it based on the promised update. When I bought it I skipped the updates part. I just read that it was on sale until the update hit app store in November. The pics looked like the game needed improvement, but I did not think it was that bad.

    TO THE DEVELOPER:

    I know u are still in these forums!! Just talk to us. Dissapearing only makes things worse and pisses us off even more. Oh and arn, U can tell us the last time the dev logged in.
