Don't see the big deal with the Jazz game. What's the gimmick? I already bought Terra Noctis from them... why do I want to buy that?

Well, it took forever, but I went through the entire GAF GameCenter list and added everybody. Some of the names didn't go through because I may have typed them in wrong, and I'm sure I missed a few others, so if you didn't get a request from me (donniebutts) please add me!

...now if only more of you had Bug Princess

Time to get Hero Academy I guess.

Well, King of Fighters-i and Street Fighter IV Volt play fine so it's not hard to believe that Soul Calibur could have been good.

I wouldn't mind SFIV if it were universal. I thought it controlled just fine. Granted, I'm not an avid fighting game fan, but it worked on the iPod touch. I would definitely keep playing it on iPad.

I also found the controls to be garbage on gamepad. Hate trying to press (left button and right button, or top button and down button) at the same time.

Wut? I don't remember any such moves in SC... Did they add them for the iOS port or what, and why would they?!

Hell, that's pretty much 100% impossible to do with an analog stick as on DC so I'm pretty sure they weren't there...

The Whale Trail team over invested, probably spending too much on marketing/advertising which has a low ROI, and may never break even.


Not saying a game with a much lesser budget couldn't reach 60,000, but it seems like success relies pretty heavily on pure luck and just breaking even must be very difficult.

There are definitely ways in which you can protect your downside to increase your chance of breaking even and moving into profitability. Luck plays a role, but you can stack the odds for success considerably with smart decisions, careful spending, and the right activity.

All but 2 of the 15 titles PikPok have published so far have failed to or won't break even.

The main problem developers face on the App Store (and indeed for most platforms) is the naive belief that developing a great game is the only thing that matters. The world is littered with the corpses of developers who made great games.

I really love Caverns of Minos, it's easily Minter's best since Minotaur Rescue. Has a nice difficulty curve, some hilarious pickups and enemies and perfect controls on iPad and iCade. It looks janky in screenshots (although that's on purpose) but it has a real charm in motion. I'm currently number 6 on the Novice scoreboard, come at me bros :D

Yeah... But what's hard about pressing two buttons together... Loads of games ask that.... Now, it can be a bit tricky compared to the arcade games where you have big ass buttons you press with fingers other than your thumb but consoles give you 4 extra shoulder buttons to map those two tricky combinations on, if you don't want to get an arcade stick.

Or you could map the shoulder buttons to the primary functions, and put combinations on the face buttons.

Or whatever else.

I think you're right. Just did a quick search and it seems the 3DS game is a port of the Wii game with extra stuff. And this iOS version is some spin-off
