We're not sure when the sale will end so, if you're interested in downloading some transit time killers, it'd be best to do it sooner rather than later.

      Developers end them at different dates. No guarantee all will last that long.

    • Groove Coaster (TAITO) is also $0.99. If you liked Space Invaders Infinity or Rez, it's a lot of fun. Great music and visuals, well worth the buck.

      Thanks for the list, OP!

      Real Racing 2 is a steal at $.99 and has never been this low. Dead Space, NBA Jam, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Groove Coaster to name a few.

    • Was hoping that Square would drop their prices to what it was earlier this year ($3.99 for Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy, etc). $4.99 isn't that bad but not as hot as it was last time.

      ya I don't get them either...I use AppShopper to track the apps I want and it also shows sale prices that the title has been previously. If they aren't going to at least match or go lower that previous sales what is the point

      and LOL at Final Fantasy Tactics going for $12 on sale. Really Square?! Really?! ...I'll wait for $5. I have patience :lol:

      How are both games? Are they worth buying?

      Know of any decent sites that reviews iOS games? I'm looking for an opinion.

    • I just bought Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, and Sonic 4.

      Anyone here got anymore suggestions on some good games to buy?

      Just curious if Fifa 12 and Madden 12 is worth buying for either the iPhone 4 or iPad 2? I can't decide if I should buy both versions since I have both devices.
