Ugh. Whatever it is this update makes me wonder what I ever liked about the game. I'm on my first playthrough, level 28, and I just find it incredibly tedious. It seems even more to just be clicking boxes.
I expect I'll finish this run and then delete. I'm not even excited about playing the new girl.

That's unfortunate. That game wasn't vibing with me to begin with. Maybe I won't even bother playing the new update.

Thanks for the Cradle of Rome heads-up. Apparently, Cradle of Rome 2 is also free but has always been free. Something tells me CoR 2 it's IAP-alicious.

Flight Control HD which has made many a best-of iPad list, is back down to $0.99.

I've gotta say, unlike all the other platforms I game on, the iOS makes it the most difficult to stay abreast of coming promotions and sales. The iOS app store is so saturated with small time (but some surprisingly fun output) developers that it's hard for them to have a voice to reach us.

Folks here try hard to contribute by monitoring appshopper/watch lists etc, but the info is diluted in the rush of millions of apps.

Any other thoughts on inputs for sale info?

What we really need is a iOS price tracking search engine. Hope to add it after we get the new site up.

I think we could also have a seperate code drop thread.
Other suggestions include making the iOS forum more visible (by reducing the amount of forums in general) as part of the new site transition.

Hey Cheapy, the code drop thread already exists on CAG:

It's also noted on the first page that code drops shouldn't be on the thread.

Hope your ready to save some cash and kick some ass! Yeah AppShopper is the best price tracker I know of and yeah the code drops are annoying.

I picked up Walking Dead last night, it seems cool but I'm having trouble adjusting to controlling multiple characters. I wish you could just pull them to their locations on the fly like in Battleheart, vs having to cycle through them one by one and then direct them. It feels a little clunky, but maybe with more practice...

I appreciate whoever mentioned Cradle of Rome being free, and yes COR2 is free too. Both fun games with great HD graphics. However, looks like both of them only let you play so far, until you need to pay to go further.

So, in other words they're not really free and shouldn't have been posted. :roll:

Incorrect. COR2 is free with IAP all the time. COR is paid but currently is (was?) free, no IAP, though there is a separate free version that does. The sale heads-up was for the full version.

I would buy it in a heartbeat just for the music! But I'm really bad in the PC version with a gamepad, i don't want to imagine how bad I'll do on the mobile version

Thanks Shrike! Appreciate the help.

I picked up JSR for the Vita so no need to double up on it.

When I look in the app store at jet set radio, there are no written reviews? This seems very strange. Is it just something wrong on my end? I'd like to know about controls.

I have it for dreamcast but my dreamcast is somewhere buried at my mom's house. :-(

I got JSR for Vita, too, and the controls on it are a little challenging, so on iOS I can't imagine how they'd be. Not sure how they would have implemented the touch controls.

It was a blast way back when, and the music alone is worth checking it out.

Yeah, unfortunately her house is 2000 miles away and I haven't been there in nearly three years. :/

It's sad that not all games support the VGA box.

But yeah, I could really do with some Seaman.

I keep looking at the screenshots and the fake buttons take up such a big part of the screen. I'm guessing I'd play it once and then delete. :-(

Found the original drop thread dating back to 2011, though it was labeled "iDevice" and didn't show up under a search for iOS.

Added the link to the OP and my earlier post.

I hope they release more DC games on iOS and other platforms. It still remains my favorite gaming console of all time! mostly due to its large roster of amazing fighters and amazing sega games. I still have my DC and play it from time to time. POWERSTONE 2 is still the shit, especially with friends.

I really wish the OP of that thread would change the title to iOS instead of iDevice.... People searching for such a thread aren't going to expect it to be iDevice. Oh well.

Like I did earlier.

It's now changed to iOS in the title.

^^If you have a PSP, Power Stone Collection is about $20 and includes both games.
As I still have my Dreamcast plugged in and reviews are horrendous, I guess I'll pass on iOS Jet Set Radio.

I highly recommend the free Lost Cubes, which I just finished on iPad with perfect scores on every stage. The difficulty ramp-up is slow, but it eventually gets to a point where I'm sufficiently challenged.

Slow ramp up is right. Too slow IMHO.

Super Monsters Ate My Condo has gone free for the second time:

Thanks for the heads up on JSR. Bought it for sometime in the future. Can't pass it up for $.99
