Came here to post about Doodle Jump, too bad the iphone version isn't free.

Dubble Bubble Shooter HD is down to 99 cents (universal) Tried the free version and it's cool, similar to bust a move but the balls are a little unpredictable which keeps it interesting.

Casino for iPad dropped to free for the first time.
http://appshopper.co...casino-for-ipad


So, I checked the "want it" box in the appshopper app on my iPhone, because I don't currently have access to my iPad or the laptop I have iTunes on. Turns out, in spite of the name, Casino for iPad is a universal app. Just a heads up.

Also, sorry for no links, but the following are now free:

So... what's up with Little Inferno? I skimmed over a review a long while back when it came out for PC, and if I recall it said LI was more of an amusing interactive piece than an actual game.

While it's amazing to have JGR on your iphone, it's pretty much worthless IMO due to the controls. It's not a matter of broken touch controls, I think they work just as good as you can get on a phone or tablet, it's just that JGR has always been a tough game to control, even with a regular controller. I don't know why I bought it knowing full well this would be an issue, but I did. I suggest you do not. Go get Sonic CD if you don't have it already.

I'd call it a game. Check some youtube reviews.

Jet Grind Radio, or rather Jet Set Radio.

Ah...was Grind the original name? I've only played it on PSN and iOS, both as Jet Set.

And I agree, the controls are pretty bad. Not completely useless, but way more difficult than they need to be.

Tried Pen and Paper. Realized I hate RPGs. Deleted.

Enjoying Ridiculous Fishing. It plays like an IAP minigame grindfest but with no IAP and manageable grind. Not a great game but a good time waster.

I tried Knights of Pen and Paper. It's good, but I like Dungelot better, which I think should be free now as well. They're both good, so give them a try.
Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

I bought Dubble Bubble Shooter HD, it's good. What makes it different is the physics of the bubbles.

Yeah, I noticed that but was in a rush out the door to work so didn't get a chance to edit my post, thanks.

Correction, "SpikeDislike2" is back to 99-cents. In for "After Burner", the bubbles one, and "Modern Combat 4", so thanks to everyone for your contributions to this thread! :)

... oh, and "Sonic CD", because I'm weak & have iTunes credit ... a dangerous combo. :D

Procreate for iPad has gone from $5 to $2. I did some research a couple of months ago and determined this was the #1 art app for me, been waiting for a better price ever since.

Looks like it's always been free, but it looks interesting and I'll check it out.

For free, I'll give it a shot.

Shellblast Forever is down to 99 cents, I've read a lot of good things about it and now they have a Lite version which I'm gonna try out tonight.

Damn, I feel like an idiot. This game is just not clicking for me, I want to like it but I can't figure out the strategy. :( I'm good at picross, but with the triggers not being grouped in consecutive tiles... not sure how to locate them.

To everyone who has the PopCap game Bookwrom. You need to update it now, it just received a long overdue upgrade. It is now universal and supports retina display on iPad and is optimized for iPhone 5. If you don't have it then it is on sale for $1.99 (but it has been $.99 before).

$7 bucks... that's -$3. Don't know if that's enticing but it's only been lower by a dollar one time like 2 years ago.

IGN is reporting Plasma-Sky for free and Appzap is reporting Pento for free. Neither is actually free (as yet). I'll be keeping my eyes on them and will post back if they change.
