iPhone and iPod Touch Games on Sale

Apple iPhone & iPod Touch games in the App store are constantly going on sale. While I originally posted games and prices in this post, it's become almost impossible to keep up with it all. Feel free to post in this topic on good deals and games you enjoy. Developers are also encouraged to join in, especially if they are running promos or sales.

If you want to check out a particular game, try the following review sites, or ask in here so fellow CAG's can assist you.

App Review & Price Drop Sites


Important Notes:

  • Make sure to check for periodic updates either in iTunes or on your iPod\iPhone. For each release of new firmware, theres is usually a bunch of games updated right afterward.
  • Some applications also go on sale by their authors when they reach 1 million download and similar milestones.
  • Apps often have specials the day before, during, and after holidays, regardless if said game/app is related to the holiday.
  • Newly released apps will often have a % or dollar amount off for a limited period of time to gain a large following quicker. While browsing the app store you can go to a particular type or genre and order according to release date. This can make finding new app discounts faster.
  • Make sure to backup your purchases in iTunes to CD/DVD for safe keeping. You can do this by clicking File-->Library-->Backup to Disc. Then choose all purchases, applications only, and full or incremental backup. How often is up to you, but I do this monthly, or more often if I buy alot of apps.
  • Apps can be redownloaded without incurring an extra charge if you previously purchased it. This is good if you have a crash and forget to backup your purchases. I don't know if this is a pernament feature so backing up regularly is still important.
  • I strongly advise not to buy iTunes Gift Cards by 3rd parties unless you know they can be trusted. Retail stores, receiving cards as gifts, etc are the best ways. There are many credit card scams, stolen cards, hacked cards going around, especially on Ebay.
  • If you are the victim of a iTunes Card scam or get your account locked due to one not all hope is lost. Apple has been fairly lenient on these issues. Call Apple directly at 1-800-MY-APPLE, or check the iTunes Store support site at http://www.apple.com...rt/itunes/store. Also going to your local Apple Store to discuss it can help. The account locking is an automated process and can be reversed. This can take time so be cautious if you use gift cards from 3rd party sources.

Another shout out for Galcon http://www.galcon.com/iphone/. Picked it up last night at its sale 4.99 price. If you check out that site you can take a look at a video of game play and get an idea of strategies and the leader boards for online multiplayer.

IGN reviews a lot of them on their wireless site.

Yeah, my choice was between Galcon and Vay since they are the same price this week, and at first my thought was well Vay probably has more game time, but i also figured well if i wanna play a jrpg i might as well play a really good one on another system.

Galcon is pretty nice. Haven't tried the online yet, but i enjoyed the maps i tried today. Looks like it will have lots of replay value. Good visuals as well.

EDIT:

Apparently there is a trial version of GALCON now avaliable.
