PWN: Combat Hacking (universal) $1.99 > $0.99 (New & Noteworthy)

Hi! I just launched my newest strategy game called 'PWN: Combat Hacking' this week, and was surprised with a New and Noteworthy feature. Sales have been great so far but I want to take full advantage of the feature and get it into as many players' hands as possible. So, I just dropped the price to a buck. Take a look and hope you enjoy the game!

Here's the info:

PWN is a real-time strategy game where you launch cyberattacks at other hackers as you battle to control the internet.

- Eight elite hackers to choose from, each with a unique skillset
- Numerous hacking skills to learn and master
- Extensive solo campaign mode where you take down other hackers to learn their skills
- Earn reputation and get ranked on global leaderboards
- Bluetooth multiplayer
- High-stakes tournament mode
- Over 75 maps to battle on
- No typing/programming knowledge required
- No IAP!
- Inspired by ludicrously fake hacking scenes in Hollywood action movies

Sucks to see this one have to go on sale because of poor sales. It's an OUTSTANDING game. If you don't have it yet - GET IT!

It's not so much that sales were poor, just underperforming what I thought they would be for an Apple feature on the front page. Even just including these past few days, it would be my best-grossing week ever (not that it's saying that much), but I want to get the numbers into the next order of magnitude so there's a bigger user base for word-of-mouth later on.

I'll sing the praise of this game as it is quite a fun and satisfying game worth the price of admission! Grab it if you haven't already; I'd hate to see a good game get overlooked!
