Buying as many $0.99 games as possible for $10.

I say "as possible", I initially assumed it'd be ten games, but after buying Mr. Driller I noticed I'd been charged $0.08 tax. What the hell is with that?!

Anyway, so far:

Mr Driller
Mr. AahH!!

...any ideas for the rest?

I forgot: Great Leaping Lambrettinis and F.A.S.T.

It's hard to remember which of these are still $0.99 as I got a lot of them at that price (and some of these have dropped since I bought them...)

Gonna try not to stick myself with one genre too much, so I'm only buying one space shooter. Not too attracted Light Wars so it's between Isotope, Nano Fighter and Anomaly. Which has the most content in terms of upgrades/levels/etc?

Definitely Isotope! There is both survival mode and levels, with ships/modules to upgrade. Dev has integrated "web levels" where you can download and play new levels online as well.

Nano Fighter has many levels, but the're all survival mode waves.

Anomaly has levels, and has a neat maze-like setup, but has powerup type upgrades, and it's level of polish doesn't compare to Isotope.

All of these have light versions, try them out. Also - you can transfer your funds (one time only) from the lite version of Isotope to the full version if they're both on your device.
