There's a bucket full of games that had their prices slashed this weekend for various reasons. As always, standard App Store disclaimer is in effect in that these prices were all current at the time of this posting. Since sales are often very limited, if you've been waiting for any of these games to see a price drop, you may not want to wait very long before picking them up.

Assassin's Creed II Discovery, $9.99 → $6.99 - A fast paced side scrolling platformer that is highly reminiscent of Prince of Persia. We thought it was cool in our review, although to really enjoy it you need to play the game on third generation hardware, as the framerate on previous-generation devices left much to be desired.

Ravensword: The Fallen King, $6.99 → $4.99 - This impressive open-world RPG was developed by a two man team and features hours of gameplay. We liked the game in our review, and since then the game has been updated to include even more content.

Chop Chopa Ninja, $1.99 → 99¢ - Play as a ninja in this side scrolling beat-em up to rescue a princess. Instead of using on-screen controls, a series of gestures that are taught in the tutorial control the movements of your ninja. For more information check out our post on the game.

Chronicles of Inotia: Legend of Feanor, $2.99 → 99¢ - The first Chronicles of Inotia holds the claim to fame of being the first touch action RPG available on the platform. Released all the way back in 2008, Inotia has since seen a sequel that we enjoyed.

Crayon Physics Deluxe, $4.99 → 99¢ - A really fun physics game released in early 2009 that asks players to solve various puzzles by drawing crayon lines with their finger to create objects in game. You need to pick this up if you like physics games.

Heavy Mach 2, $2.99 → 99¢ - A top down mech game we enjoyed in our review. The sequel is an odd departure from the original which was a side scroller, and both games are worth checking out if you're in to vehicular combat.

iZombieland, $2.99 → 99¢ - One of the few movie tie-in games on the App Store that's actually worth playing. iZombieland loosely follows the movie Zombieland with a side-scrolling Splatterhouse-style beat em up. For more information, check out our review.

Theseus, $3.99 → 99¢ - A puzzle game that places players in a maze where they must escape a minotaur. The catch? The minotaur happens to move twice as fast as you do, but has predictable movements and mastering the game involves learning how the minotaur handles your actions. This was a forum favorite when it was released, and we liked it when we took a look at it.

Underworlds, $2.99 → 99¢ - Still one of my favorite hack and slash RPG's, Underworlds has had tons of content added to it since our initial review of the game. On sale for the Super Bowl, or, apparently, for a week following the Super Bowl if the Colts win.

Car Mania, 99¢ → Free - A traffic management game we had some minor issues with in our review, but you can't really go wrong with a free game-- Especially when it comes packed with full OpenFeint integration to pad your OpenFeint score.

    Wow. I imagine that's the world's quickest sale on a new game (Assassin's Creed 2). That'll be the last game I buy on day 1, thanks a lot Ubisoft. :

    • starmonkey101

      i didnt get the game. but i agree. that was a pretty ridiculous move.

    • Jeff

      I think seed 1 dropped the fastest.

      Namco`s PacMac CE had the fastest sale ever. It launched in NZ and went on sale from USD 4.99 to 2.99 five hours of it`s launch. That was even before it made to US.

    I also bought AC 2 for full price... It was the last time I bought a game in the first few days of release.

    • MrMuesli

      But did you like the game? And why? I'd buy it at top price if I thought it was good, but the general consensus seems to be a bit underwhelmed as far as I can tell. Would love to be proved wrong.

      • erik

        Actually , I thought it was good. Unfortunately, after a few minutes of gameplay ,I was simply disgusted :-/.

      • oliath

        Yeah i can see why you would be annoyed.
        I purchased on day one also.

        I have to say that this title is absolutely worth the full price but sadly i think many people were naive enough to think that simply because it was a side scroller it was a bad game.

        Hopefully the sale will encourage a few more sales.

        However... by pulling such a stunt Ubisoft have ensured that i never EVER make a day one purchase from them again.

    I also bought Assassin's Creed 2 at full price, and regretted it immediately, as the game is terrible. The frame rate renders the game virtually unplayable on an iPhone 3G, and the basic 2D gameplay is frustrating, difficult to control, and devoid of fun. In short, it's awful.

    • Eric

      Which is really funny, since folks in the forums couldn't stop gushing about how awesome it was after it was "accidentally" fake-released, and now that it's out for real the consensus seems to be that it's alright at best.

      • Khavatari

        Ac2 is horrible. Those who write that game is good are funboys or developers... Or get paid for this ad....

    AC2 is a terrible game. I don't really evaluate games based on price, but this game isn't worth $6.99 either. Save it for the dollar menu at Mickey D's if you're smart.

    • Big Albie

      Just to clarify, I felt AC1 was a better production and ran more smoothly. The gameplay feels shallow at least for me, and definitely not as immersive. But, do as you will with your 7 bucks.

      • rich_952000

        Wow, that clears up the questions I had on this game. I didn't care all that much for AC1, at it's core (I agree about the interface, production values etc.).

        Filet-O-Fish combo: here I come :D

    That's why I love the Canalbalt devs. Quality doesn't need fast price drops.

    Vector Tanks is now .99 (was $2.99) plus has an additional enemy tank added, updated controls, and other bug fixes.

    For some reason I can't get a mention on Touch Arcade to save my life. I swear I've been Blacklisted.

    I got Underworlds, it's somewhat disappointment, the control is just terrible.

    • Big Albie

      I agree with you. The controls were changed in the most recent update...for the worse. They would've been better off keeping what they had, but as of now, maneuvering is rather frustrating.
