    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.

    Thanks for your time and consideration,

    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.

    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,

    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!
