The bundle includes two games which if bought individually would cost EUR 5.99 each. I already have one of them and I can complete the bundle for EUR 6.99. I don't get it, is this some kind of scam?

There seems to be some kinks with the bundles, I have the exact same issue with this Autumn Dynasty bundle. As well as many of the other bundles that include games I own, and know that I paid for, but show no discount to complete the bundle.

Want to buy Autumn Dynasty, but am torn because on Google play it's only 2.99. Is the ios version better in some way?

I have devices for both ios and android, and plan to buy an IPad Air 2 when they come out.

iOS: iPad Air 2 128GB Space Gray, iPod Touch 5 32GB Space Gray
Android: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Black/Gray

I think maybe the developers fault, I have "Autumn Dynasty" in purchase list and downloaded but the purchase item list has no icon or description, related content or reviews, the one in the bundle is named Autumn Dynasty - RTS so think maybe a different instance of the app? Even if I search and look at the individual app it wants me to purchase it again.

So, I'm guessing no more updates or fixes on the one I own. Is anyone able to confirm/deny?

The original Autumn Dynasty was distributed by Bulkypix and eventually pulled from the App Store. It was then re-released by Touch Dimensions as a new app. So I'm guessing that you have the old Bulkypix version, which means no more support. I've got both versions in my purchase history and still can't get a discount on Warlords in the bundle. Oh well.

I'm pretty sure they had the app up for free for a short period of time when they republished. That's most likely the reason it isn't registering any discount on the bundle.

Seems to be the way bundles work. It looks like they know if you paid for a game or got it free. If you downloaded it free then no discount. That's the way the bundles work from what i can tell.

Yeah that's what I'm seeing as well. I got FF4:TAY and MC5 free, but I bought a bunch of the other games in each bundle at full price. All in all, I think it's a really fair system.

I want to clarify this, because it seems to be an issue a lot of people are becoming confused about.

When checking to see what apps you have in what bundles, the App Store seems to be checking your purchase history--which means that, in addition to checking to see which games out of a given bundle you have, it also checks to see how much you paid for those games. Then, it discounts the amount you paid.

For example:
Assume there is a bundle with a total cost of $6.99, which contains two games which retail at $4.99 each individually.
- If you pay $4.99 for one of the apps, the bundle will deduct $4.99--the amount which you had already paid--from its total, resulting in the remainder of the bundle costing $2.00.
- If you bought the app on a previous sale for $1.99, the bundle will deduct $1.99--the amount you paid during the sale--from its total, resulting in the remainder of the bundle costing $5.00 (for one game which normally costs $4.99).
- If you got the game for free during a freebie release, the bundle will deduct $0.00--the amount you paid to download the app for free--from its total, resulting in the remainder of the bundle costing $6.99 (for one game which normally costs $4.99).

If you paid less than the total amount for a game which is part of a bundle, the bundle will deduct less than the total amount, because that is what you paid for it. It will not deduct the total cost of the games you previously bought, because you did not pay the total cost of the game to begin with.
