Price Drops Galore...

Seems like a lot of big apps are dropping in price for the upcoming weekend. The big question is which of these are worth picking up?

Speedburst 99c
Cro-Mag Rally 99c
Bugdom 99c
Billy Frontier 99c
Spore Origins $5.99
Tetris $5.99
Scrabble $5.99
Yahtzee $2.99

I already have Crash Nitro Kart but I can't ever get myself to play it. At 99c, should I grab Cro-Mag Rally? And what about Tetris? Are the controls too frustrating to drop the 6 bucks on it?

Sorry I should have given my own thoughts!

Avoid Bugdom. I picked it up at 99c and didn't like it at all. Not even worth grabbing at that price in my opinion.

Tetris is one of the easiest games to control. Not to mention it is 10000000x better than Tris

I recommend

Tetris (EXTREMELY underrated, and buried by people whining about EA, or the price)

Scrabble (for any kind of Scrabble fan. It is a breeze to control as well.)

Nanosaur (if you can mind the save feature, which I thought they would transfer from Bugdom 2)

Cro-Mag is not nearly as good as Crash Nitro Kart... The only fun stage is the Atlantis level IMO

I think I'm going to grab Tetris then. I know everyone complains about Billy Frontier but is it not even worth the buck?

Definitely worth getting:
Cro Mag Rally
*Maybe* Yahtzee

Um... I don't really recommend this one, but it is fun once in a while:
Spore - You'll either hate or love the game. It's only got 30 levels though

The game that I don't see how anyone can like is Billy Frontier. It's just not fun.. The graphics are OK, but it's just stupid!

[EDIT] And I definitely think you should get Bugdom. Bugdom used to be my favorite game on my Mac wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy back when the first one came out. I had no trouble buying this game because I knew I'd love it. BUT!!! It's not a game that you can just pick up and play for 5 minutes. It's a FULL game that will take you LOTS of hours playing to finish. It'll take you about an hour to an hour and a half to finish one level. SO, it's DEFINITELY worth the $1 but only if you know that it's not a short game for quick rides on the bus or something.

Oh, and if you really like scrabble, get it. I used to play scrabble online with my parents all the time, so I bought this and sometimes we like to play this one across wifi.
