    For those games that look 'oh-so good' and you cave. 2 minutes later you have 10 less dollars and a newly deleted app.

    What games should you definitely not buy? Contribute, and help educate new members. C'mon, you know you've done it! I will update this list as frequently as possible (every 3 entries or so). This is not a unanimous 'hate' thread, just a thread where people state their regrets. People have their opinions, just please NO ARGUING! I put peoples' opinions on this list, not the set in stone guidelines that you should blame me for. I made this as a guide for members to steer clear of bad/debated apps.

    To Start--WARNING:

    Motochaser (Debated)
    Any DS Effects games
    Paradise (Debated)
    Raptor Copter
    Cro-Mag Rally (75% hate)
    Kroll (50% hate)
    Urban Tycoon
    iPhysics Lite
    Billy Frontier
    Asphalt 4:Elite Racing (Accelerometer controls ruined)<---- Otherwise [touch controls] it is a great game.
    Star Wars:The Force Unleashed
    Antimatter
    Angel Sword
    Aqua Forest (laggy)
    Raging Thunder (Debated)
    Tap n Slide
    Crystaloids
    Perilar
    Zombie Mansion
    Arvale: Journey of Illusion (Debated)
    FX Magic
    Catch the Egg
    Zen Pinball
    Bomberman (controls)
    Touch Physics (Glitches)
    Spore (fun factor)
    Bugdom 2 (fun factor/controls)
    Topple
    Linerider
    Armado


    Please post your input!

    of course, just to point out, it'll be most difficult to get any kind of consensus on this as it's all personally subjective.

    i mean, motochaser is one of my fav games!

    because of this, this thread could make pretty meaningless reading.

    Do NOT buy:

    Paradise (until a cool update is released) or Raptor Copter... those are my two recent regrets

    Well, seeing as 90%+ of this forum loathes that game, I think people should be warned.
     
  5. Yeah, I am one of the few on this forum who actually like Moto Chaser too. The thread ought to be looked at as what people have regretted buying and that's it. I don't think it should be looked at as a guide. I wouldn't want to put someone else off a game that I didn't like but they actually might.

    Btw- just played Burning Tires Lite, and I know if I'd have bought the full version I would have been disappointed. Action Blox was another disappointment (CubicMan Deluxe is far better imo).

    Put me down as another customer who DOES like MotoChaser... It's a good game, there's nothing wrong with it.
     
  7. This isn't exactly going to be the 'ultimate no guide' then is it- if already 3 members (including myself) have stated one of the 'no' titles as actually being good.

    Cro Mag Rally and Billy Frontier are a disappointment for me. Motochasser is okay.

    no.

    as someone mentioned, it should be a 'regretted buying that' forum, not a guide to games not to buy.

    i completely dislike Rolando, but love cro-mag. we all have our own ideas :)

    We should all be able to agree on Kroll?

    Kroll is definitely disappointing, but I still have to recomend it since the graphics alone make it worth it. Motoracer is awesome; I'll never get the hate.

    In terms of games to avoid that I've purchased and hate:

    Enigmo
    Tiny Violin (okay, not technically a game)
    Lego Batman
    Urban Tycoon

    Haha,
    So what's wrong with Enigmo, it gets a lot of hate as well but I love it!

    It's just so hard, and while I like a hard game, I felt like Simple Jack playing this.

    Do NOT buy Touch Physics. Crayon Physics is 1000x better.

    Yes, but their has been regrets, meaning I should put it on the list. If you read the description, it says that this topic is for regrets, not unanimous opinion. Sorry if I upset anyone!:eek:

    Lol, then choose a unanimous app-Urban Tycoon.
    If anyone says they like Urban Tycoon, they should be stuffed in a shoe and left to rot, like what the dev did to us buyers :mad:
