Bad iOS game: Ash

I like to think: "Either say something right, or don't say it at all."

But writing like this, is so stupid, that it creates a barrier around it, making it impossible to find a place to start, when you want to explain why it makes the video game community a worse place to have an interest.

So in this is, I'd rather express myself poorly, than not say anything at all:

Ash, a game for the iOS devices, is a bad game. It's controls are fundamentally lacking, the writing is just thrown out, and the fact that it uses turn based battles, which are initiated randomly, is not a plus point, which is simply acceptable because lazy japanese game designers did it in the early nineties and continue to do so to this day. It's just bad game design.

And to rub a little salt in, the graphics are simply taken from RPG Maker VX. That's simply insulting to any person who purchases this miserable game, especially if they do so because of IGN's endorsement.

The app store is filled with bad games. Ash is one of them. An alternative, if you absolutely crave japanese game design, is Chaos Rings. I like to end on a positive note.
