Waking Mars on sale: 4.99->1.99

Sorry, no link, I'm on my phone. Just came across this sale by chance; I was checking out my iTunes wishlist and noticed the price changed. The description states that this is a limited time sale, so if you want it but haven't yet purchased it, now is the time. I'm dl'ing as I type.

I completely love this game, but I got stuck in a place were you had to have seeds, but I couldn't get them!

I think there's no reason not to get this at the original price: This is one of the best games I've played in the last year, a great blend of clever, open-ended puzzles, environment exploration, and a really solid science fiction story. But at this price, it's a huge bargain!

Reviews here seem solid. Is this basically a platformer? I bore pretty quickly these days from the average platformer but don't mind spending $2 for a couple hours of good gameplay. How is it on an iPhone 4?

It's impossible to get stuck because you can teleport out of sections using the map. And even if you run out of seeds, hydrated plants will always produce seeds if you have none in your inventory.

Got this game a long time ago during the sale. It really pulls you back because of its adventure aspect. It's more the plot and your want to find out what happens next that really makes this game good.

This game is great! Reminds me of Metroid even though it's totally different!

No regrets whatsoever.
