    Greetings!

    My first iPhone application has been released on the App Store. It's called "Cheap Tactics," and the price is $1.99. It's a turn-based strategy RPG with 10 stages, 6 character classes, optional bluetooth multiplayer and in-app iPod controls.

    For more info, click here:

    Thanks for your time and consideration,
    -Tom Salvo

    Certainly looks "cheap". In case you're wondering, that's not a compliment. The screens look terrible, i surely hope it plays better than it looks. good luck to you.

    Allow me to explain a few things. This is a solo effort, mostly for fun, and I am by no means an artist. In spite of this, a great deal of effort went into this game. But since I'm charging money for this app, criticism is absolutely welcome.

    I feel like you're coming across as a bit of a graphics snob, and possibly a jerk. But I encourage you to buy my app anyway because at least you'll be more qualified to have an opinion on it. And I could use the extra cash.

    Peace,
    -Tom

    Reviewing your own app and giving a 5 star review seems awfully tacky.

    I like my app. Why wouldn't I give it 5 stars? :p Besides, I've seen "Message from the Developer" reviews for other apps and never thought it was "tacky". To me, it seems to be a friendly way of saying thank you, and encourages others to write reviews and provide helpful feedback.

    I kindly disagree with you. If you write an app, you are free to not use that review space for anything at all, and that's just fine with me.

    Best wishes,
    -Tom

    Good luck with your first app, Tom. My favorite game system, to this day, is the original NES. :)

    Thanks for the kind words!

    The NES is where I got my start in gaming, 20 years ago, and it will always remain my favorite as well! Of course, there are a ton of great modern titles, and I enjoy a good variety of games from different generations. But there are so many classic NES games that seem exactly as fun as the day I first played them :)

    Best of luck to you with your current and future apps!
