With the availability of daily download stats to developers, it appears we may see more pricing experiments in the App Store.
Publishers of the award winning Critter Crunch [App Store] have placed their app on sale from August 1st to August 8th at $5.99. The regular price for the puzzler is $9.99. TouchArcade had previously reviewed the game which has garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews. Gameplay description:
This $9.99 game is an original variant of a classic puzzler. In this version, you play Biggs, a furry forest dweller with a long tongue, whose job is to clear the board by feeding smaller animals into larger ones. There are initially 3 sizes of animals (small, medium, large). Feeding two of the smaller ones into the larger ones causes the larger one to explode and take out any identical animals around it.
The game offers a unique twist to the typical match 3 puzzlers and at $5.99 worth serious consideration. A gameplay video offers a quick look at the Adventure and Puzzle modes.
