ThinkTanks is a straightforward game with no gimmicks, no tricks, no cheats, well designed graphics and a high level of player involvement.

Inside this less than twenty dollar application there are four different, but similar, games that, combined with two overlapping online communities (BattleMode players - score for killin' opponents & Scrum players - think rugby in bouncy cartoon tanks), have provided countless hours of online enterainment far superior to what I found with any of my twelve and a half wives,(including Rollinda).

This is not freeware. Please do not represent it as such. This is crippled DEMOware masquerading as freeware.

_AFTER_ I spent forty minutes sorting bookmarks and deleting a multitude of duplicates the application informed me that my changes would not be be saved. I am at an age when I don't have a great many forty minutes to waste.

This sort of rude behavior is a gross insult to users from a _dishonest_ developer.

Although the application may be useful I would be a fool to purchase any product from a developer who begins his relationship with his users on a patently _fraudulent_ basis.

Yes, it is NOW listed as shareware.

I tend to be very conscientious about the licensing of software.

At the time I downloaded this app, some days before I posted, the value in the license column was FREE.

I am certain of this because the first thing I did after coming up against the "no saves" issue was to return to MacUpdate and confirm the license on the application. I then _again_ downloaded the, apparently, FreeWare application in case I had made an error previously and downloaded the shareware instead of the freeware version of the application. I encountered the same problem and again returned to MacUpdate to verify the license was indeed free.

It was not until the ninth , when I came back to see if anyone else had been perplexed by the same issue as had I, that I posted my criticism.

I note today that all prior uploads of this application have been removed from the list (on the day I made my download there were at least two previous uploads of the application) and that the application now has the correct license information. Perhaps Google has a snapshot of the page on the day a made the download.

If someone realized the mistake of listing the application as FreeWare and later changed its license to Shareware I would expect apology for the mistake rather than the implication that I am either simple-minded or mendacious. I am neither.

Clearly there is no reason to prolong this.

BTW I generally download directly from the list window. I seldom download from the product window.
