The game came out a bit later for iOS so that is probably why. I am sure after some more time passes it will hit a sale price

Just came across a clever looking game called Saturday Morning RPG. It's free, but looks like you have to pay for Episode 2.
Anyone play this?

Saturday Morning RPG is a lot of fun. Episode 1 is short but it will give you the idea. It's definitely worth a try.

Avernum: Escape From the Pit HD dropped to $5

http://appshopper.co...from-the-pit-hd

based on how the sales have worked with the previous game Avadon don't expect it to ever go any lower so if you have interest in a really good RPG on iPad grab it now for $5

Nice. Congrats! I actually found out about it from the Steam indie voting thing: Someone mentioned being a fan of the iOS version, and I was like, "Wha?"

Has anyone used the AVID video editing app? How does it compare to iMovie?


That is my next purchase after I finish my current project in the next week. From what I have read, AVID wins over iMovie. Supposedly, AVID supports files from an SD Card and multiple Audio Tracks. I have some wicked plans for it along with VJay and Action Movie FX.

There is one point of concern though as AVID has sold their consumer product line including AVID for iPad to Corel, which should take effect within the month (although who knows how long before they update the app to acknowledge this). This is part of why I'm holding off on it until I know I will have time to work with it. By that time perhaps Corel will have some sale to promote the change 8-). Of course, it may be good to go ahead and get the file for it before the change over just in case it goes downhill with Corel.



Not really a game deal but I'm posting since it was asked about earlier. I was right Corel is rebranding Avid Studio for iPad as Pinnacle Studio and instead of just renaming Avid Studio in the App Store, they are offering a brand new item and removing the old "Avid Studio."

Corel is doing the honorable thing and is offering the new Pinnacle Studio FREE until September 18th. I figure past that date it will go up to $4.99 or higher.

Also, Pinnacle does outshine iMovie in terms of advance user controls. I like some of the features in iMovie like the trailers but I see Pinnacle as being more customizable and ultimately keeping my interest longer. Add in the ability to upload to Box and you have a winner. Pinnacle can use videos from an SD Card but you first have to import them to your iPad through the photo app.

Pinnacle Studio for iPad - FREE

Just going to post this--I bought it a while back and highly, HIGHLY recommend it! If you like deep, long cRPGs like the original Fallout, Planescape Torment or Baldur's Gate then snap this up right now, it's excellent!!

I didnt think Bastion's combat was that great. The story was okay but I didn't find it memorable. That said Ura are scum and should all die. Even worse than Darcsens.

according to wikipedia, only 8 people bought it. 6 in the us. at least 1 by mistake. 2 refunded. $999.

might be the rarest app of them all.


When I read this, I remember thinking that something like the following might be true:

so rare, yes, but... digital goods are funny bc these kinda don't really exist?

Apple could kill this behavior with one change: allowing users to revert to an older version of the app at any time. By this, I mean nondestructively, if possible, and without having to provide your own old IPA.

I'd be happy with just being able to pin apps to the current version.

I'd like to know the same thing. I tried to read the user reviews, but they were extremely unhelpful.

The touch arcade review said they were ok for virtual buttons. Default is an auto aim system. But I know there was a recent update that gave more options for manual aiming while running. I just downloaded it before I left for work this morning so haven't had time yet to check it. Good controls or not, for $.99 for a 2nd gen console game I can play on my phone, I'm not going to complain.

Sword of Fargoal dropped to .99. I haven't played this but based on reviews/forums i believe it's supposed to be one of the best, if not the best, rogue-likes on IOS.

grabbing it.

Different marketplaces, different audiences. Not weird at all.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Gamevil pulled this crap yesterday as well with Fishing Superstars. At least they were honest about it and stated this in there list of updates.

You can do it yourself if you want to put in the effort. Just back up your IPA files on your PC periodically and you can overwrite them if you accidentally update over the old one.

It's not a perfect solution (if you sync to your iDevice you need to delete and reinstall), but it'll work.

I've been tempted to write a little shim that monitors your iTunes app folder on your PC and backs them up for you (and provides a UI allowing you to "roll back" your IPAs). I'm just too lazy.

No, I really mean for APPLE to do it... it would destroy the incentive for devs to do this (without adding substantial new & compelling content in addition to the ads or whatever) since the "newbies" would just to be able to roll back to the pre-ad version, the one they never downloaded.

Then devs could just release an additional ad-supported version instead. waaayyyy less scammy.
