This is a tad harsh but not completely inaccurate. I have no doubt some of the earnings bleedoff is because of Apple Arcade and the continued rise to dominance of freemium games. I also have no doubt quite a bit of the drop in earnings can be attributed to two major factors not mentioned: momentum (that's a really long time between releases, compared to how much closer together Miracle Merchant, Card Thief and Card Crawl released, which means TTT just isn't on people's minds as much these days) and game accessibility. Honestly, I have diminished returns with their titles; Card Crawl remains my favorite, getting far more play than CT and Miracle Merchant. And this one I am already in the process of bouncing off of, I can tell. The inconsistent respawn of defeated automatons (who, really, shouldn't be respawning at all) and randomization of the levels makes progress feel less like a reward for skill or strategy and more like dumb luck. I will likely play it until I can complete all 15 levels. I would wager good money that after that, I never boot it up again.Maze Machina looks weird, the characters look ridiculous, and it's hard to tell, at a glance, what the heck it is. It doesn't look interesting enough for people to care to figure out what it is. It's not the pricing, or how he needs to monetize his products, put out a better game.
