    Eh... Spore was 80MB. I'd rather have large, good games, than tiny ones of poor quality. So far the limiting factor has resoundingly been the inavailability of good games for me ....

    Spore is the only one I've ever paid for, and I was pleased with it.
    I was tempted by Toy Bot Diaries, but it's too buggy (and it took them way too long to fix the sound / 2.1 issue)
    I downloaded and deleted a few small free ones, but Dactyl is the only one I found even vaguely entertaining.
    And then Aurora Feint is the only other free game even that I have.

    So I'd rather there be more high quality games, even if they take a significant amount of space, than there be a continuing deluge of garbage.

    Haha, you got me... basically there's a monkey and some trash. The graphics look pretty good, though. I'll voice my opinion on that topic when I see it in action. :D

    EDIT:

    So I did just download it. My initial impressions, playing up through Stage 1-6 (first boss).

    - Cut screens are very nicely done, although they're in landscape orientation with the rest of the game in portrait only, which is jarring. They probably should just have made the whole game portrait

    - The graphics during gameplay are pretty cute. The theme is well implemented and the animation is basic but fun. Some of the textovers are very reminiscent of GBA games... they could have done better with that.

    - Sound and music are so-so. Nothing special.

    - The game concept is fairly basic so far. They do keep adding things in which makes it interesting, but it's not super clear how much more sophisticated it'll get. The first boss battle is pretty silly... about the kind of thing boss battles are like in the Super Mario 2D franchise.

    - Overall there are four "sectors" -- not sure how many sublevels each one has. You have appear to have access to all sectors and subsectors you've previously visited when you play the game again after the first time (so you can either pick up where you left off or replay an old level).

    I think it's cute. It's no Aurora Feint or Spore, but it's cute. If I had a chance to preview it and then purchase it, I would target this game as possibly worth purchasing at the $0.99 or $1.99 price point, but not more than that.

    Any ideas why it might not show up as free on iTunes or the Appstore for me?
