Part of being told this story is that I was charged with passing it on. Like some sort of old boat guy what rhymes, almost an ancient mariner, if you will, I have partially discharged this duty.
I don't know. I mean, think about it. It's a free game that does really well up until that point. They obviously want some profit, and I think they did a rather swell job with the set up. Especially since they had a Scootasale, they'd probably have a RainbowGrab too.There's also an interesting article on the MLP game from Gameloft, courtesy of CNET. It's pretty negative, but I'm in agreement with them. You can't get Rainbow Dash without dropping 50 bucks, and you can't finish the game without getting Rainbow Dash. I bought the Final Fantasy War of the Lions App for less than $20 and that game is approximately 5,000,000 times better than the pony game.* It's seriously ridiculous.
Honestly, I like the game because zooming in and watching ponies prance makes me happy.
It would be weird, actually, based on the sprites they use. Having your guy change from earth pony to Pegasus to unicorn and back. And the plot, I mean, seriously, how would you rewrite that or pony?*Ponified Final Fantasy Tactics would be one of the greatest things ever and there is a distinct lack of it.
No seriously, I'm all ears.
