Nice, and it looks like there's a similar sale on the Civilization titles.

Tempted, as it's been in my AppShopper wishlist, but I just can't justify the space. Great deal, though -- great deal.

The BWM sale literally filled my iPhone to the brim T_T Really would download, especially for a dollar, but that would mean that I would have to go through so much trouble of relocating apps.

The game does look fantastic though. Good reviews too.

My advice would be to buy/download it at the current sale price to your desktop/laptop for future use OR temporarily delete the 4-5 biggest apps/games on your iPhone, buy/download the game, then delete it (knowing that you can always return to the AppStore in the future to re-download it) before restoring the original apps you deleted to make way for it.

Everything you've purchased on the AppStore will always be available for future download - that's what I've done with the biggest app/games that take up too much space on my iDevices/computer.

At least that way you don't miss out on the sale as it could be a while before it goes on sale again.

Oh totally forgot about being able to download on the computer.

I didn't want to do it on my phone because some apps have trouble downloading, even if you have the available space, which complicates things.
thanks.
