INKoming Review

Recently, what everyone purchases in the App Store is based on price. If you want to price something at $9.99, you have to have an amazingly good quality game, such as Real Racing. If you want to sell a good game with lots of replay value, then $1.99-$5.99 is the price point for you. However, if you have a good game that people wouldn't want to pay a lot for, but would still buy, (or a high quality game on sale to boost sales) $.99 is a great price point for both the customers and the developers. However, INKoming, which costs $1.99, is definitely too high price-wise, and I wouldn't even waste my time with it even if it was completely free.
INKoming, by MT2W Ltd, is a basic top-down TD game, with a few towers, and 24 maps. Your goal in the game is to stop the monsters from advancing and destroying your homework.
Although the game has a whopping 24 maps, it is to no avail, since players would become bored or frustrated with the game far before they even finished two maps. It doesn't bring anything new to the genre, and is worse than many free flash tower defense games I have played on various websites on my computer. In my opinion, the graphics and controls are atrocious, and the interface is horrible. Some users say that it has great strategy, but I couldn't get past the uninviting surface.

24 Maps

Horrible Graphics
Horrible Controls
Just Plain Horrible

Bottom Line: 
If you want a TD, steer clear of INKoming. Unless you can't see very well and don't mind looking at such horrible graphics, don't even think of buying it.

Graphics: 2/5
Gameplay: 2/5
Controls: 2/5
Replay Value: 2/5  (You won't even beat it once because you'll hate it so much)

Overall: 4/10  (In this case, an average)
