  • Sales

uniwar-screenshot-4The past week has seen a number of sales and price drops on some prominent titles. Here's a list of some great titles that have been discounted.

Lite

  • UniWar Lite (Free) - Well, technically not a sale, this is a new Lite version for our favorite turn-based strategy game. No reason not to try it now.

$0.99

  • UniWar ($1.99 -> $0.99) - And if you liked the Lite version, here's your chance (again) to get the full game at only $0.99. Be sure to check out our review
  • Sentinel ($2.99 -> $0.99) - One of the better Tower Defense games, version 1.4 adds a number of new features.
  • Sally's Spa ($4.99 -> $0.99) - Not a game we've covered before, this is a high quality time-management game set in a Spa. Normally $4.99, it seems a steal at $0.99.

$1.99

$2.99+

    Great how the developers of Car Jack Streets lied in an interview telling us that they are not going to put their game on sale. Instead they said they want to reward early buyers and want to rise the prize with the next update.

    Thanks a lot...

      I guess times are bad and it wasn't selling extremely well so...

      They have families to feed and are real people. I too paid $5 and would have paid more. Doesn't make me mad, shows me that Tag is business savvy and in turn it is a good thing for existing owners as it insures development continuation is going to be funded.

    • Tim

      Yeah they did say that... Maybe the sale is in response to the overwelming amount of negative feedback surrounding the map (or lack there of) and the controls...

      hmmm

      I had the same thought as I just bought Sentinel for $2.99 a few days ago and was a little irked they dropped the price now.

      But then I realized, we're talking about two dollars here. I know, it adds up, but still. That's a negligible amount of money really. Better get used to price fluxes anyway since the app store is still a new frontier and most developers are startups or small teams of hobbyists. No one seems to have any idea what to charge and from what I can tell Apple is no help. The only thing you can do is either pay attention to the deals (since everything will probably be on sale eventually) or just buy what you want and can afford and don't think twice about it.

    I think Reign of Swords is still $0.99. Regular price is $4.99.

    EA is killing me. I was waiting for SimCity to drop to $3... instead they just drop it one dollar. I will wait it out. One day they will, until then Underworlds it will be.

    Poor UniWar.

    They were quickly rising to the top, but they suffered from the same fate of iDracula by raising the price too quickly, allowing them to quickly fall off the Top 100!
