The sequel to Gameloft's COD4 ripoff is apparently up. Whoever's making those games is obviously super competent. It's sad how they have to ape the look and feel of everything right down to the logos though, the games would be plenty good even if they weren't trying to confuse their audience by calling it "Modern Combat 2" instead of "Modern Warfare 2".

My top selling game is a reversi title that did over 5million.

My bitch staff said that a historical action game was a stupid mix of genres. Then it sold 3million. Musou that cigarillos.

Is there any reason to develop for multiple platforms? Seems like a waste of money.

I did but I also decided to try Rage and Modern Combat 2, so I only messed with Bug Panic for a minute.  It's not like a typical Cave shooter and is more akin to a Pocky & Rocky style game.  You control the girl with a virtual d-pad and use your other finger as a target to fire bombs at enemies.

RE: Game Dev Story

I just sold a fantasy rpg sequel that went on to sell almost 4 million units. I got the runner up award at the game awards, which is what? 100k? I have won multiple awards for my games, but zero prize money. What gives? Is it honorary? I only have trophies to show for it and zero cash prizes.

It's fucking good. I think they are going to be dumping shitloads of puzzles on us in the future with new updates. The puzzles are similar to the original DC/GBA versions which I played teh ever-living shit out of but there are some slight variations. Tsubabababababa~~~

Puzzle Quest 2 is a fucking abomination. Why did I pay $12 for this shit?
Even on an iPhone 4, it looks shit, responds like shit, and has some of the worst UI I have ever witnessed on my iPhone.
I might give it a try on iPad to see if it's playable, at least.
Seriously, what a disaster.

Doesnt help PQ2 is a step down from 1... but not as bad as Galactrix

HUGE fuckin sales going on. Everything from EA is 99 cents, iPhone OR iPad. I have bought a ton of them. Clue is excellent as is Yahtzee Adventures!

Other big releases are Aralon and some Gameloft clone shit that is probably passable (Nova, Uncharted ripoff, FF ripoff)

Konami also has a sale. The Castlevania Puzzle game is 99 cents.

Post more as you find em and make Marcus cry
