Anomaly looks rather sweet as well. Might be fun to try, as it does something different in a genre plagued by repetition.

Nah, don't. It's still a tower defense game. It's just that here the 'towers' move and the monsters don't. It's actually not even that good as a tower defense game.

User Score: 5.4, yet it has about as high of rating as Ocarina of Time from the reviewers. Paid reviews, perhaps? :o

sighs Paid reviews don't happen. There's some very isolated cases, but certainly not for a small-fry iOS release.

People have different opinions about the game. I scored it 2.5/5, but that had nothing to do with not being paid. I personally know the people that work at some of those publications that did give it 10/10, and they don't take money from publishers.

I pay NL reviewers to give out 10s on games I like

Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting is on sale for $0.99 right now. It's surprisingly fun – a bit finicky, but fun. Well worth a buck. :3

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Firemint's (of Flight Control fame) new title Spy Mouse is this week's featured app at Starbucks. I nabbed a couple of codes while I was there and figured I'd spare someone the trip. It's really fun too!

Agreed, definitely worth it for the price. Not much meat to it but it's a nice time waster

There'll probably be a lot of sales this weekend (in the US at least) on account of Labor Day.

Ok, British ignorance here. Why would there be a lot of sales because of Labor Day? And what exactly is Labor Day? I've heard of it and I know you're not supposed to wear white after it but other than that, got no clue

@Terra: Labor Day is a federal holiday here in the US, and anytime there's one of those going on people plan short vacations and get-togethers (because their workplaces are closed), there's sales in stores (because people may have nothing better to do than shop on their extra day off), etc. and so forth. E-shops and internet shopping tend to mirror retail shopping in terms of major sale timing, so that's what he's talking about.

All I need to know is Labor day is when Anime goes on sale here, so it's basically my favoritest holiday after Christmas.

Will do. Oh, and I found that you can get Zenonia 3 for free so I've downloaded that. If I like it, I'll look into getting the other two Zenonia games while they're cheap

EDIT: Didn't realise Jetpack Poyride was done by the Age of Zombies and Fruit Ninja developers. Alright, definitely sold on this now

I already got that in a Steam sale. Wasn't my sort of game in all honesty but you can't go too wrong for it's current price.

Having a look around again today. Pac-man Championship Edition, BIT.TRIP Beat, Dead Space, Star Battalion, Flight Control and more games are going for 69p/$0.99 now. It's a good time to be an iPhone/iPad gamer :)

Does anyone else have Archetype, preferably the iPhone version? I'd like to see if multiplayer is cross-platform. :3
