My fingers are getting numb from writing Internet articles about sales on the App Store, but because I love all of you as strongly as one of my apartment kittens, I have decided to persevere and pen yet another article about price slashes. This time, I want to point you towards publisher Gamevil’s Verizon “Welcome to iPhone” sale, which sees a lot of its top apps receiving big cuts in celebration of the new market. Here’s the list:

Also, check this out: Gamevil and Paw Print Games are teaming up to put out Kami Retro, a gorgeous retro-stylized 2D platformer, on the App Store. Details are being held close to the vest at the moment, but the following video sheds a little light on what you can expect, which is to say, traditional and level-based platform hopping. Grabbing little collectibles for points appears to be a main focus as well.

Kami Retro, our first title as Paw Print Games is a platformer/puzzle game, that combines retro elements from classics such as Jet Set Willy, Rainbow Island, and Mario with our own unique twist and visuals,” a Paw Print representative said in a statement.

Cool stuff, right? I’ll be keeping my eyes on this one as I rest my poor, poor hands.

    So it's kinda like Lemmings/ Mario Mini-land Mayhem. Awesome. I wonder if they emailed people about the closed beta yet.

    Did I hear mention of Jet Set Willy? The most awesomely old-school, underrated and badass indie platformer ever created? Sold for the reference alone. Matthew Smith really needs to get into iPhone game development.

    It looks almost too similar to Arkedo's JUMP

    In concept it looks almost exactly like the Mario vs. Donkey Kong games. Not that that's a bad thing at all, I rather enjoy those games and will definitely be looking forward to this.

    Had me excited until I realized it was Lemmings-like which is one genre I cannot stand, and I know I'm a minority on this.

    Loving the retro graphics and animations 🙂 It's reminding me alot of mario and lemmings so it's defiantly worth adding on my watch list!

    That is by far the coolest looking IOS game I can think of.
