427316_2Just when you thought the App Store prices have gone as low as they can go, here's another solid game that's being offered for free.

Dropship was one of our favorite iPhone shooters when it came out in December, and introduced us to one of the best dual control stick control systems for the iPhone.

The game succeeds on many levels, but perhaps the most critical piece that they got right were the controls. Your ship is controlled by your left and right thumb which can be placed anywhere on their respective sides of the screen. Left thumb controls thrust and right thumb controls the direction of firing. There is a slight learning curve to this control method, but it ultimately allows very good control of your ship and avoids the major problems that come with a fixed button system (using up screen real estate, and accidentally hitting the wrong button).

We're not sure how long this free pricing will last, but there's no reason not to get it now.

    It was a steal at $0.99. Still a great game.

    • Ahiru

      yup, i didn't like it either.... ngmoco's games are very polished and all, but not really that fun - in my non-absolute opinion

    says "free" under search results, but then $1.99 on the app info page.

    it takes some time to propogate to all of the itunes servers. so just wait a little and try again if it's not showing up as free for you.

    Unbelievable. This game is amazing fun. I've had it for months and I still play regularly. The best dual analog control implementation I've seen yet.

    Reviewers are saying that the game is bundled with advertisements. Is that the strategy that developers will be taking now?

    • Anonymous

      Yes, there is/was an ad. I do NOT like the Rolando advertisement in my PAID version of Dropship, either. I haven't gotten around to complaining about hat.

      ngmoco should consider dropping the ad in the non-Lite (currently FREE) version of Dropship.

    This is the second ngmoco game I have bought for a dollar that goes to free, that makes me mad

    • belsunce

      oh no! my heart goes out to you man

    • cjmegatron81

      Give me your address so I can send you 4 quarters

      • belsunce

        I want 4 quarters too!

    • belsunce

      no but seriously, I understand how price drops can be frustrating. I paid 9.99 for ASPHALT 4 ELITE RACING and that p.o.s (ya, on top of paying full price, I paid full price for a game I HATE) is now 0.99.

      now THAT pisses me off, but for every drop like that where I paid "too much" (and I only consider it's too much if I didn't like the game), there are always a couple of apps I waited to buy (like DOOM RES & MGS TOUCHED) that I snatch at discount.

      it's the way of the AppStore and we have to live it. still, complaining about a dollar is, well... Do you like the game? Was it worth a dollar? Then you should be happy you supported a company that brought you fun and joy for the low low price of 0.99.

      See it that way and everything will be A-OK

      peace
