With most apps I get automatic notifications when my favorite apps go on sale via App Shopper, etc. I wait to recommend them to friends when they are on sale since a dollar or two isn't much risk for a casual player. But those sale sites don't seem to monitor in-app purchases.

Thanks for reading, and thanks for continuing to develop a great game.
We haven't had a sale for our in-app purchases for the full version, mostly because getting the word out is harder since it's not as easily visible. We'll consider it for future promotions though.

Is the IAP on sale? On the home screen it says .99$ and when I am purchasing, it asks for a confirmation on 4.99$. What is it?

Looks like it was, but there is a glitch on Apple's side.

See their blog entries:

and:

They say in comments section that the price will drop again Friday (today).

I wish there was a service like App Shopper which kept track of in-app purchase prices. I almost missed this one, and Tilt to Live is one of my favorite games on the iPhone.

It's available for .99$ now. A steal I say.

Havent tried to buy it myself yet but the develope said "From the looks of things, it doesnít look like thisíll [price change problem] get sorted out until Monday as weíll have to get Apple involved. Something went wrong with the price change on their end and itís out of our control. We will extend the sale once we get it sorted out.

I've noticed with other IAP price changes it often takes a day or so before it properly updates. In the meantime, at least from my first hand experience as a consumer, the stated price and then the system message confirmation will be all out of sync and I have no idea which price is official (I assume the price mentioned in the blue system popup is what iTunes is about to charge you).

For those who have had this game for awhile, do you find yourself still playing it - or was it a novelty that wore off? How do the other modes add to your enjoyment of the game? For five bucks, I want to make sure it is something I will keep playing, and keep picking up here and there as time goes on.

Sad thing is: way back when it was free for a day and I didn't check it out. Now I am trying it - like the classic mode, but five bucks is an investment, not just something I want to spend if I end up only kicking around on it for a few days.

I've had it since shortly after launch, and I play it all the time. It's truly one of the top games for iOS. Make sure to buy the Viva la Turret DLC for a buck as well. It adds a cool game mode.
