Namco Classic Game $0.99 Sale

Namco is having a $0.99 sale including the following (perhaps more):

Buccaneer Blitz
Dig Dug Remix
Galaga Remix
Mr. Driller
Ms. Pac-Man
Pac-Attack
Pac-Chain
Pac-Chain Compact
Pac-Man Championship Edition
Pac-Man Remix
Pac-Mania
Pole Position Remix
Splatterhouse
Star Trigon
Time Crisis 2nd Strike

Pac-Man Championship Edition seems to rarly go on sale and is promising. Splatterhouse is better now that controls were recently updated. Any other recommendations?

These ones weren't down to $0.99 like the rest but I picked up these games as I've been waiting a while for a sale for them:

Time Crisis 2nd Strike
Ridge Racer Accelerated
ACE COMBAT Xi Skies of Incursion

They're down to $2.99/1.99.

Wow... that's a tough one. It's not like 99 is a lot of money, but I still hesitate to buy this game. I have Pac-Man Championship Edition DX for the PlayStation and it's amazing. I like the bullet-time effect. The crazy combos are lots of fun too. Those minor additions make the game so much better. I'm not so sure that I'd enjoy just the regular version.

I'm surprised that the DX version isn't on iOS yet. Maybe the performance would suffer from so many ghosts.

hmm... I have no idea... but I don't see any IAP options in CE, and there's nothing about IAPs in iTunes where the IAPs are usually listed...


I did just get it last night though... so there might be something that I haven't seen yet

Pacman Championship Edition is pretty much the only Pacman game I like on iOS, it's got the best controls by a long shot.

Yup, you now get the whole game (for a buck on sale!) instead of having to buy the extra mode/missions.

I got them both for $0.99 the first time it went on sale and never regretted it. It's got excellent controls and "same-but-different" gameplay.
