Gameloft has dropped the prices on their just-released games Terminator Salvation [App Store, $5.99] and Siberian Strike [App Store, $2.99]. Both games debuted in the past two weeks and were originally priced at $9.99 and $5.99 respectively.
Terminator Salvation was Gameloft’s movie tie-in game that offered a 3D shooter set in the Terminator world. While the game was a very high quality production with good controls, the short (2-3 hour) gameplay time may have scared off casual gamers at its original price.

Meanwhile, Gameloft’s Siberian Strike is a vertical scrolling shooter set in the 1940s. Gameplay involves dodging enemy fire and laying waste to the waves of enemy aircraft that dance across the screen, and the boss aircraft at the end of each level. The destruction of certain enemies releases power-ups than can be picked up to enhance weapons and summon wingman reinforcements.
The game received somewhat mixed forum reviews at its original $5.99 price.
