Gameloft didn't put anything good on sale IMO.

Alex says:

Completely agree with Gmac. Nothing good here. Whereas I downloaded 8 EA iPad titles. Too bad!

tuscanidream says:

Hahahaha 2$ for Pacman. Seriously.?! It's not as entertaining as it was on the coffee tables when I was younger.

tuscanidream says:

And gameloft creates new titles instead of updating the ones they already have. Why do I have to buy a part 2 for 4.99$ when you didn't fix the issues with part one yet?! Never do I get an update. I won't buy gameloft games anymore.

parabel says:

Namco's AppStore appearance is a joke - especially their prices and PacMan iterations - and even more so their sale.
Gameloft's sale is ok, I guess, but only Prince of Persia was on my personal wishlist.

joeblow84 says:

I have to agree with @Keil and @parabel. Pac-man should be $0.99 for a universal binary. I do have to give them kudos for improving the SWIPE method of controlling in Pac-man. Not having to raise my finger from the screen does make it easier to control.

Redshirt says:

Very puzzling. I don't see how these games jive with the theory of lowering prices to get a higher spot in the rankings for the freeze. These titles aren't exactly going to capture the higher spots...

WB says:

I'll probably get hero of Sparta 2 the first one was pretty good. and driver cause it was once my fav game on playstation. If only Real Racing 2 was $1 that would be a real gift
