On the heels of an epic price-slashing maneuver that saw Pocket Academy and its latest game Grand Prix Story go for a paltry $1.99, the simulation gurus at Kairosoft have murdered the original asking price of Mega Mall Story [$1.99 / Lite] and Hot Springs Story [$1.99 / Lite]. Both titles are $1.99 for a “limited time.” They usually sit at $3.99, so you’ll save a couple of bones if you decide to take the plunge.

And plunge you should, as both of these titles are totally worth the reduced asking price. Earlier this summer, I called Mega Mall Story the most “complete simulation” from the studio yet. Hot Springs Story, though it requires some effort to push beyond the cultural barrier, is solid, too.

As a side-note, it appears as if we’ll be missing out on a new game from Kairosoft this month. Last month, we speculated that it’s SimCity-like title, Edo Town, would make it out of the door worldwide in early October. It's still a possibility, but we're thinking that these sales are an indication that a new game isn't coming.

    I'm joining the Wall Street protest to demand Kairosoft release Game Dev Story 2.

    My first Kairosoft experience was via the $.99 Hot Spring Story.

    I've since downloaded the Mall one (had held off due to TinyTower perceived conflict).

    May wait to pick the other two up on sale but maybe not.

    Hot Spring is insanely addictive and after my first "complete" Spring run, I'm realizing how deep the game actually is.

    You just scratch the surface on the first play through.
