iBomber has not had an update, if i knew that there are more missions on the way then i would buy it for $2.

Yea the lite version was pretty cool but it seems short. Either way, if it went to a buck I would buy it.

My son caught me watching the iBomber video on YouTube and really wanted the game, so i went ahead and pulled the trigger and bought the game.
There are more levels coming soon, the question is, will they be free?

Well, for the cost of large fountain drink, you get a well made, polished unique title that offers a decent amount of content for your 2 bucks worth. I'd say it's a bargain.

With the bad game play reviews I think I will do the same.

Nothing against you (everyone does it), but I hate it when people say things like this. "$2 is not that much money"..."For the price of a cup of coffee"..."it's only 4 bucks don't be cheap" etc etc.... Its true, its not that much money, but with the 100's of apps worth looking at every month, its hard to choose which 1-10 dollar apps are MORE worth it than others, because like a cup of coffee, when bought daily or very frequently, can add up to hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

/rant over


EDIT: I've tried the lite version and its a very fun game, I would not hesitate at $1.

Favorite iPhone game so far: PIG AIR

It's a fun game that's also different, the challenge in the game is hovering over ships, building, etc and dropping bombs, it can get frustrating sometimes but it's fun IMO, my son likes it too. There's also upgrades, you get to temporarily upgrade the bombs, and that's about it.
And there's great sound effects.
