    I'll hold off a bit, already insta dropped 32 bucks on civ and mh this week ;)

    • michellefgoss

      as Thelma
      explained I cannot believe that a stay at home mom can make $7420 in four weeks
      on the internet . more info here R­e­x­1­0­.­C­O­M­

  • Jake7905

    Does $3 for OTTTD really count as a sale price?

    • the_rebel14

      From $5? Yeah, technically that is a sale price.

      • Himmat Singh

        I remember getting it for $3 at launch.

    • roguewaver

      You sound like you have "free" and "sale" confused. Any discount or money off of a traditional price counts as a sale price.

      • dancj

        Nah. The game was $3 for a month, $5 for two weeks and then back to $3.

        It isn't a sale. The $5 price was - whatever you call the opposite of a sale.

      • roguewaver

        Thanks for clarification.

      • Jake7905

        The traditional price WAS $3, that's the point.

      • roguewaver

        Got it.

      • StealthDawg

        Idiot lol

  • CooleTeeps

    Just got 7 things on the list almost 8 maybe

  • Steven Lewis

    Mr, Crab is free. Add that one.

  • Killerluffy246

    Dont but godfire , that game seriously oa a waste of money and time . It is badly optimized with the worse performance in the ios store .

  • rewind

    I absolutely hate sales. I hate sales on iOS games, on IAP, on groceries, on lawnmowers, and on anything else in the universe. That's because I'm afraid to buy things when I know that they'll eventually go on sale. When you drop the price of something, less people will be willing to buy it at the full amount. It's just a bad idea.

    • melocoman

      Disagree. It's a good way for developers to get their older games on the charts again. Thanks for the list

      • rewind

        But your profits drop after a sale, because the people who wanted it bought it during the discount. But I don't want this to turn into a whole debate, so I'm not going to end here. Happy 4th of July everyone, and hopefully the weather is nice.

      • rewind

        ***Whoops, I meant to say "I'm going to end here"***

      • icepulse

        Not if it's old. An older title may be virtually fossilized in the App Store. If a sale bumps it up the "most popular" list, it stands a chance of snagging a few sales, due to sheer visibility, that it otherwise wouldn't get.

        Of course, updating and supporting the app has a similar effect ;)

    • gmattergames

      Can't blame them for wanting to get a piece of the AppStore feeding frenzy that occurs over holiday weekends.

    • Jacob Gehman

      Sales have long been a major factor in retail commerce. I think publishers/retailers would have caught on by now if having sales negatively impacted people's willingness to make purchases.

    • nini

      Moral, buy everything at full price and if it's on sale demand to pay full anyway. Swear this pricing stuff has got people shooting themselves in their own feet and emptying their wallets unnecessarily so they felt morally correct and got to call those who dared to wait cheapo scum. Same logic got Rocketcat selling Wayward more and more expensively somehow, it's fucking ridiculous people can take price increases as a good thing and use it as a business practice. A fool and their money, right?

    • Arcite

      You have issues dude. Money is made to be spent, not hoarded due to irrational OCD.

  • speedyph

    SKYLANDERS IS FREE WOW

  • dezzah

    Botanicula is great. That is all.

  • CooleTeeps

    Does anyone know the difference between Majesty and Majesty Lite? I checked out the lite version to see if The Northern Expansion would be good and I want to know.

    • BoonyTuesday

      Can't say because I bought the full version of Majesty, but there is a free version of The Northern Expansion if you want to try it. I think it's the full game, but with ads.

      • CooleTeeps

        I realized that in the lite version you get the tutorial + the first two levels only.

  • Jason Cunningham

    GoBananas! Pro is FREE this weekend since a bald eagle is featured in the game. Download now! Very fun and addictive!

  • supaman900s

    Lol I thought they said cheap

    • nini

      No. they said sale...

  • rogue35

    Recommendation between 'drive on Moscow' and 'battle of the buldge'? Both on sale for $2.99.

    • Andrew Minatelli

      Either one. They're both fantastic if you're a fan of the genre.

    • vicsark

      Battle of the Bulge IAPs are also on sale at 0.99$ ICYMI

    • DemoEvolved

      Bulge

  • Andrew Minatelli

    Autumn Dynasty: Warlords is on sale right now, too. $4.99 from $6.99
    Sid Meier's Pirates! for iPad: $1.99 from $4.99

  • dekon

    Tim Howard blocking everything? Yeah right! USA lost against a small Country called Belgium :p . It was a good fight anyway and both parties where at their best. :)

    • Utfan

      Tim Howard still had a magnificent game and enough saves to break the record for most saves in a game since they started counting that stat in 1966. Yes, they lost, but he still was incredible.

      • Himmat Singh

        Football fans don't give two bothers about stats. Stop Americanizing everything!

  • ImJPaul

    100 rogues just went back up to regular price on the 4th. They must hate America. Psh.

  • Onikage725

    Not just Drive on Moscow. Battle of the Bulge is also on sale. Grabbing both!

  • Himmat Singh

    That is not Tim Howard in the image above, is it?

    • marcanthony0313

      Yes, it is..

  • thiagovscoelho

    Boost 2 is free today now!

  • DemoEvolved

    Skylanders seems like a gem hole. Isn't this game normally 5$? My kids have 40 figs and it lets you unlock those for free, but then each skylander is a black hole sink of coins and gems to unlock their abilities??? Wth is this the way a 5 dollar app with 40x15$ in figs is supposed to be? Someone pls explain wth is up here!!! For the love of all things right and just why???

  • Ken Neth Wong

    Pig Shot and The Idiot Test 3 (featured by USA Today) are free as well =)
