Uppercut Games's ridiculously awesome cover-based shooter, Epoch [$2.99], is seeing its first price reduction since its November launch. For a limited time, you can grab it at $2.99 instead of its usual $5.99. I ran this deal past a few of our math wizards, and they're telling me this is 50 percent off the regular price, so that's cool.

Epoch was a big hit with us. We awarded it a lot of stars, and loved how it made cover actually feel good. That's a rare thing in third-person shooters, even though there's a billion-plus-two of them out there on shelves at the moment. Give it a shot if you didn't grab it yet, or hey, read our full-length review and decide.

        I just wanted to point out that you guys actually gave it 4 out of 5 stars and that's one of the reasons I haven't picked it up yet- there's too much interesting 4.5 and 5-star stuff out there.

        No, I hear you. I just tried to pull another math joke, as if I wrote that sentence without the wizards taking a look at it.

    Give me one game that looks this good, that you can freely move and explore the world. Even one. I pay more. I can pay 60€ for a good game for 700€ device. I hate this 2,99 business, for it seems to hinder mobile game market from maturing out side of pretty flash games.

    So you guys think it's worth it at $2.99? I still haven't picked this up yet. Might do so today!

      Yes, it is. I think that the GUI could be better, and could have more levels and enemies, but what the hell, it's on sale!

    The game crashes on iPad 1 right after the logo screen.

      This is an issue that is all to common...
