Actually that’s cheap - look how much people spend on IAP since most so called free games are unplayable without paying real Money for virtual goods - and you have keep buying stuff to keep play.

I am no longer downloading those since those are overpriced.

There are no good free games and I’m happy to pay this small amount and enjoy a game without ads or artificial slowdowns that are only there to suck mu money

12$ is over-priced? That seems like a low price.

At $11.99, not too bad. I'm glad it's not one of those "Freemium" games where you have to pay a boatload to get the good stuff or speed things up.

A very decent price for a full game, or maybe you like the free "pay to win" games?

I would get it, but I don't have a device that will run it.
