684669jpgGameloft is aggressively pricing their games with additional sales on some of their most recent titles.

  • Assassin's Creed ($9.99 -> $5.99). Fans of Gameloft's Hero of Sparta will probably like this ambitious iPhone title. While the DS version had mixed reviews, the iPhone version has been well received by the community with an average 4.5 star rating in the App Store.
  • Siberian Strike ($2.99 -> $0.99). On sale for a limited time, this vertical scrolling shooter offers some solid shoot-'em-up action. Big Albie provides a review of the title and considers this a must get at its current $0.99 price.
    Aside from the loose tilt controls, Siberian Strike has little downside. You can probably finish the game in a few hours if you’re a hardcore gamer because the levels aren’t very long. But, you will certainly get your money’s worth in terms of the content that is packed into this fun shooter.

    Siberian Strike could be a decent schmup if the frame rate wasn't so terrible. It spluttered and choked regularly on my iPhone, making it pretty much unplayable. I've reset my iPhone, reinstalled the game etc, but it just runs very badly regardless.

    • Big Albie

      My review is based on running the game on an iPod Touch 2g. The different processors in the devices will only be more problematic with the future games.

        I suspect the extra background processs in the iPhone only exacerbate the problem. While the iPod Touch is pretty much a media player and little else, the iPhone is searching for cell towers, checking emails, checking for SMS etc all the time.

    Runs smooth for me too on my 3g... I just wish I waited for this to be $0.99. I paid $4.99... still worth it at that price. I'm just a cheapass.
