Two prominent games have seen price drops today:

EA's popular Tetris [App Store] game dropped in price from $9.99 to $7.99. EA's Tetris is a reasonable implementation of the game for the iPhone. We previously took a look at the game. With the recent removal of Tris from the App Store, this may tempt you to get the full "official" version of Tetris for a bit less than its original price.

Freeverse's Big Bang Sudoku [App Store] has also dropped in price from $4.99 to $2.99. If you're still looking for a solid Sudoku game, Big Bang Sudoku was one of the top Sudoku picks from Macworld. This version of Sudoku offers a shiny interface and offers 10,000 levels across four difficulty levels.

    Wow, that's awfully generous, EA! /sarcasm

    "EA’s Tetris is a reasonable implementation of the game for the iPhone."

    Uhh, and what was Tris? EA's was definitely more polished and played very well. I'm not sure if you were downplaying EA's game or not, but it definitely sounds like it.

    @Mike: What are you talking about?! In my opinion, calling any $9.99 implementation of Tetris on a phone 'reasonable' is being FAR too generous.

    @Mike I'd say "reasonable" is the perfect word. The Tris opinion scale is skewed because it's free, but I thought Tris was just ok. But EA's Tetris implementation is not the best for the faster levels due to limitations of the control system. It works, but I don't think "perfect", "excellent", or "awesome" really fit.

    @mavis: I'm not talking about the price. If you want to argue that you're unwilling to pay $10 for a Tetris game, do it elsewhere. I'm talking general gameplay, graphics, etc... Which in my opinion EA did a better job. Tris was obviously better bang for the buck (as it was free), but I'd still rather play the EA version.

    @arn: As the comment above yours shows, yep, people only seem to care about the price, which is really unfortunate. Honestly, is any implementation of Tetris perfect? It's eventually going to get too fast for people to respond and have control. Unfortunately the EA implementation causes that to occur sooner than directional keys and rotate button.

    @mike well, this version seems fast enough: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yF6o9Vgo4qc :)

    But, I think it's fair to say that Tetris on the iPhone itself isn't ever going to be perfect because of the control system. But that's not a slight against EA perse, but just the platform in general.
