I personally have nothing again GameSalad, they have developed a system for writing games without the use of high level code. I have used it my stuff and found that you can create a fairly reasonable little game with a few hours. This has enabled people with good ideas for applications to make and develop there own with love and care.
However, it has also allowed people who want to clone games and make a quick dollar to create games as well.
Therefore when I open an application with the GameSalad logo at the start it is more with fear nowadays.
I believe that around 90% of the games I play that have been developed with GameSalad I would have rated at 50% or lower. This is because lots of the so called developers are pumping out games just to throw in adverts or make a quick sale to people with £0.59 to waste.
There have been some great games developed on GameSalad so it is more than possible to make them, also professional developers can play extra to GameSalad to get the GameSalad logo etc removed, therefore a good game would not show up as a GameSalad release at all.
GameSalad is now trying to change the way things work and have themselves as the distribution point for applications developed on their system. This has got a lot of developers up in arms. There are a lot of positive and negative sides to this idea, depending on how it is done.
However, I think that Game Salad has to do something else their name will being to be seen as linked to the poor applications that are flooding the app store.
I hope a solution can be found as I would hate to see a tool like this go away, as it has added some great games to the app store as well.
