Chinatown Wars for $2.99!

Get it while it's hot.

Not sure if this sale is legit, or a mistake that will be fixed soon, but myself, and a few others I know just got it for $2.99.

Looks like the wait was worth it. What an epic price drop!

Does anyone know how to back up saved game files for this one, though?

Best $2.99 sale you'll ever get, right next to when LEGO HP was on sale.

Awww what???

Do I have to play this game for the third time now??? Anything new in this version?

DS version is still the best though! (control wise...)

So, who doesn't have this game?..


If it's you, then it's well about time to get it. Even though it's been out for a year and a half now, I'm pretty sure it's still one of the top 10 games on the AppStore. Buy it now.

Hmm... Bought this for iPhone when it was on sale way back but never finished it. Sure is temping to get the HD version now that I have an iPad.

...but then again, many purchases to consider for tonight.

From the Touch Arcade review:

Something worth mentioning is while the download itself is only 188MB, Chinatown Wars requires a little over 600MB free on your device to install.
No need to flame, just a public service announcement.
