    Personally, me and Touchgrind have a battle on who's gonna cave in first. I've been watching it ever since I got into the app store. However I think the time has come where I must accept defeat..:(

    What are any games that you've had your eye on?
    What's your proudest "snipe"?

    prob let's golf. Just get touchgrind. It loses its appeal eventually, but it's still good for a pickup every so often. It really is a joy to play once you get the controls down.

    I would have to say many Gameloft titles, since I had stayed strong on most and I am being rewarded now. I am with ya with Touchgrind though.

    Orions and Elemental Monster TD, I kick myself in the sack everytime I think about their intro sales and me not picking them up.

    Just get FC, you will NOT regret it! Most gameplay out of any physics puzzler I've seen. I guarantee that you'll never finish. And if you do (somehow), then there are plenty more ways to do all of the puzzles. Not to mention online uploads, trying other people's contraptions, and did I mention a of gameplay? (I think it's like 45 or so levels. The later ones will take you hours to figure out if you ever do lol) It's one of my All-Time favs as seen in my signature :D

    There is a free online version of FC. Should try that one first to see if its your style.

    I ended up not getting most of the games I wanted to snipe because by the time their prices drop, something better is in the horizon. e.g. Real Soccer. Now there is X2 and FIFA is also around the corner.

    Recently Hero of Sparta, Knights Onrush, and Real Soccer 09 (Controls feel unresponsive and I tend to switch players rather than pass or kick ugh). Now if only Brothers in Arms would drop to 99 cents. :)

    I just check touchArcade and 148 apps price drops/new listings every day and snag sale items when they pop up.

    And with the big name publishers playing the 99-cent game, it's well worth your time to check often... I never would have expected to snag Peggle for 99-cents! :eek:

    Recently I've seen free for Fathers Day & Easter in addition to free for "a limited time"...

    And on that note, I would highly recommend snagging Space Trader: Moon Madness right now while it is free for a few days! Great game if you like trading games - the author has been active on touchArcade and been very generous with promo codes (and the current sale price on the game!) ;)

    It's hard to say which snipe I'm the proudest of; HOS, knights onrush are up there and I was one of the lucky ones who got Peggle at 99c.
    I wasn't a good sniper with CJS and Wooden Labyrinth which I got at a discount but not 99c.

    Finally, the apps Im REALLY waiting for a price drop are Sway and Spin. I cannot believe I didn't get SPin when it dropped to two dollars, but I thought it would be easy to get it at 99c ( I was so wrong).

    I was also waiting for Fantastic Contraption but finally ended up getting Gadgets and Gizmos when it dropped to 2 bucks. I know FC is better but I finished it online so I wanted a different challenge. The other one I didn't get when it dropped and regret it is Slotz. When I first got my iPhone I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I saw a price drop and then never again. I think I'm over that one. But as far as Sway and Spin, I will NEVER get them unless I see those price drops. I know I'm the reason devs are having such a hard time selling at ful price. Its just that when you see so many price drops, you expect everything to fall.
