GTA 3 and Chinatown Wars are 99 cents each in the app store to celebrate the anniversary of Vice City, which is coming to mobile platforms soon.

Thanks, just grabbed them both! (previous prices: GTA 3 $4.99, GTA CW $9.99)
http://appshopper.co...nd-theft-auto-3
http://appshopper.co...-chinatown-wars

According to AppShopper, the lowest the both have ever been, next to $0.99, is $2.99. Hope this helps anyone who is on the fence about dropping a buck each for these titles.

What a rip-off! I paid 9.99 for this back in 2010! And now it's only a dollar?!? I should have waited. I mean, I played the game a ton for the 2 years I had an iPad, and I wouldn't be able to play it at all now that I don't have one. But I would have saved $9.


lol. If you didn't buy it at all you could have saved $10. In fact, if you didn't even buy the iPad you could have saved even more.

This is sweet!

Guys, I saw these games down to $.99, are they worth getting? Thanks in advance. (I wish dead space was also $.99)

cut the rope
Mass Effect
crow



I think Mass Effect and Cut the rope worth it. ME has great graphic and ok control (to me).
Had lots of fun with cut the rope as well.
never heard of crow though

hmm PvZ was on sale 1.99 and 2.99 for quite a number of times already :)
I have tons of game i bought on sale but didn't have time to play (like TDKR and Spiderman recently) so I'll just wait for games on my wishlist to drop to 99c and buy.

Anw, PvZ looks really great on ipad 3.

cut the rope is a solid casual game. top tier, though i honestly found it a bit too easy. but i had fun playing through 3 starring the bazillion levels. there are some tricky ones, and each world adds interesting new effects, but i just never found the game quite as complex as i wanted it to be. certainly a top choice for .99 though, if you're into casual games.

Im surprised being an avid ios cheap ass gamer(i say that because ive seen you in here enough) that you would realize that most everything on ios inevitably goes down to that lovely 99c price point at some point in time. MOST apps do at least. Whenever i see a game thats super high price i just put it on the appshopper app wishlist and play the waiting game until it hits that special number. Only games I know never seem to drop to that point are any Square or those dodonpachi/espaluda games or however you spell them.. the shmups.

Kinda surprised it took this long to get someone who didn't pick up on the saracasm.

yeahhhhh sarcasm doesnt go by so well in print.

also Megaman X actually plays surprisingly well for a platformer with touch controls. I enjoyed the game when it was last on sale.

the 'would have saved $9 even though he doesn't even own a ipad anymore' sort of gave it away to me.

True. Look how many others made the same mistake.

In other news, this useful (and necessary?) utility is listed as FREE!

If you're into hidden object games, big fish (spooky) games are on sale for $2.99. I'm personally not but I had been wanting to pick up 13th skull (FMV mystery game) and did so today.

Looks like most everything else is a hidden object games but if you see something that's not let me know.

The first mobile game from the team behind 'Quantum Conundrum' came out today. It's a $0.99 puzzler. Not bad. Kind of like Lights Out. Good soundtrack.
