Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball





Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball 


Nintendo decided to finally jump on the free app bandwagon with Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball. The only problem is the public backlash against free apps. So by the time Nintendo tries it, the industry has rejected it. Not sure how this fits their innovating image. Speaking of images, I am a physical copy pay once and you own the game kind of person.

The ten mini games in Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball are Bat & Switch, Cage Match, Dop & Pop, Volley Bats, Quick Catch, Feel the Glove, The Aim Game, Make the Call, Gear Games, and Bat Master. Each of the game costs $4.00 to purchase. Bringing the grand total to $40.00 for all of the content within this game. Really high in my opinion. Paying five to ten dollars one time in my opinion is what all of these mini games are worth.

Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball does include coupons and discounts. Don’t expect much though. Things like 10% off, or 0.30 cents off. It is actually insulting when you think about it. I think of all the complaints we have gotten concerning free apps, and I understand how you feel on the topic.
The mini games in Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball are very cute, and fit the baseball theme nicely. We bat, catch, throw the ball, and more in this hand held downloadable video game. It only takes a few seconds to go through a level in any of the mini games in Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball. Completing a mini game provides stamps in the stamp book. Doing well gives the family member additional stamps. This is where family members will earn items. Those items are what is used to haggle with Rusty.

In my opinion Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball is heavy handed with the pay me real world money. I may be more sensitive to this issue than some others out there in the gaming media. Plus Nintendo sent this to our machines without our consent. They just installed it on all of our 3DS and 2DS devices. They should pay me before sending free apps.

The more anyone plays Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball the deeper they get into the storyline. There are some dark things in there that families may find offensive. My advice is to delete Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball as soon as you can. Do not even play around with it.

Nintendo is going to learn why free apps have a 75% to 80% delete ratio. People will try a free app, and then a high percentage of them will delete it.
