The Big Fish sale is great. I purchased and played Drawn (http://appshopper.co...ainted-tower-hd), Mahjong Towers Touch (http://appshopper.co...s-touch-hd-full), and Haunted Manor HD (http://appshopper.co...mirrors-hd-full). All of these games are great and definitely worth a $1.

I bought 20 bucks worth of big fish games this morning. They are one of my favorite developers. I had all the other titles from their last sale. They don't do the .99 sale all that often. I think of all the big fish games I've played, Drawn is probably the best.

I highly recommend this game. I bought it when it was $0.99 and it's great. Free must be even better.

There seem to be very few point-and-click adventures unique to iOS, let alone good ones. The only ones I can think of are Dream:scape (which is a 3D first-person title), Hector (the one iOS-exclusive series from TellTale) and Scarlett and the Spark of Life (which does not have an iPad version). The latter two are episodic if that matters to you.


Hector isn't iOS exclusive.

Also Jim and Frank adventures isn't quite an adventure game, it's more like Professor Layton, but it's a very good game, definite recommend.

After your comment on Hector, I looked it up, and you're certainly right now. It was iOS-exclusive for nearly a year before getting Windows and Mac ports. I simply hadn't been aware of these ports. Thanks for the correction.

I'll check out Jim and Frank next time it goes on sale. I'm always on the lookout for games like Professor Layton!

EA is also dropping for Labor Day prices on some Surviving High School and Cause of Death DLC. I already own most of it and they're rather stingy with what they're giving out. They seem like they want to milk more money out of these franchises but the sales ARE nice for those looking to catch up.

I can't check the prices very well because I own most of this DLC but it looks like Cause of Death is willing to part with Volume 2 cheap, SHS has updated to give everyone The New Girl for free and is offering the first section of Season 3 on the cheap.

Played more Chateau Moreau and man is it weird. Every single ending you get contradicts almost all the others (Literally, characters motivations and actions WILL CHANGE COMPLETELY depending on the game over endings you get.) and a few feel kinda gratuitous. Fair warning, INSTADEATHS happen starting act 3, so you need to get saving before conversations. Also, leaving the mansion at each chapter is its own INSTADEATH which you want to do if you want to collect all the endings.

Lousy music hurts the game's atmosphere. The puzzles aren't bad but they are all abstract button pushing, combination finding Myst reject crud. They never expand too far beyond the basics but they also find a good point to sit to require thought but not necessarily get so cute as to enrage.

Conversation battles remain, again, patently obvious stuff.

The plot has kinda plodded along with red herrings and nonsense without really explaining anything going on behind the scenes, and any explanation you CAN get usually requires you to die, and thus it's probably just "for that ending only" anyway.

There's no logical sense to these divergent endings. They hurt the atmosphere, kill the stakes, ruin tension, etc etc.

That said, it's still a solid, enjoyable game, but after playing the endlessly charming, intelligent, and clever Hector Ep 2, having to get into this contrived, plodding, run here and talk to this dude then put the emblem in the thing and read the cryptic clue to get the passcode roller coaster is just a jarring transition.

Don't get me wrong, I do LIKE Chateau Moreau (Well, on average) but right now it's all riding on the ending. A middling-to-bad one is going to make me curse my wasted fiver and time.

I have 4 or 5 hours into Drawn and enjoy it. My son who also likes it. Very much worth a buck.

I think Hector is even ahead on pc now because they're on ep. 3. Steam had 1-3 on sale last week; not sure if they still are.

So after getting my code, I know why they're giving them away. This is hands-down, the ugliest, least-polished game I've ever downloaded for my iPhone. DON'T waste your time.

Semi-relevant question. I just got an iPad, and I'm thinking about buying Dead Space HD. I've already got the SD version. I transferred my Infinity Blade save file using iPhone Explorer...can I do the same with Dead Space? Will my SD save work with the HD game? Or would I have to start over?

The Big Fish sale finished off the last of my iTunes gift card. I'm tempted to get another one for some of the Namco Bandai games on sale. House of Glass looks like a nice Tangram puzzle game for $1.99 and Stroke of Midnight seems like a cool adventure game for the same price.

I second the megaplex madness recommendation by big fish. I downloaded it this morning and have spent several hours of enjoyment. I also purchased Hospital Haste (big fish) and it's not bad. It reminds me a lot of hotel dash in how it's played.

Tap Disc has dropped to FREE for the first time.
"Tap Disc is an entirely new kind of game unlike anything you have played before. Combining elements of timed tapping and color matching, Tap Disc offers a unique challenge that was created just for the iDevice platform.
Use your finger to collect white, orange and red discs as they ricochet around the playing field. The timing and placement of your taps control which color discs you can collect. The goal is to collect as many discs as possible and earn points while making sure the colored discs don't collide with the big bad black and yellow disc.
The basic gameplay is simple and addictive and only gets more exciting with combos, power-ups, challenges and many other surprises."

You can't use credit on gifts with iTunes

Actually, you can...unless they recently changed that. Earlier this year I traded quite a few times on here with Wii gifted games for iTunes gifted games that each of us had credit for and didnt want.
