Mechanic Panic (SD) $1.99 -> FREE

Thought some people who are relatively new to iOS gaming (like myself) may be interested in this. I hadn't heard of it until today. Members in the TA thread seemed pretty into it back when it came out in 2011.

iTunes Link: Mechanic Panic

It's actually a really fun "one-handed" game. The IAPs are only for buying XP, coins, etc. which aren't necessary. And there are NO ADS. Reminds me of that game Alcatrapz.

Oh man I've had this little game since it came out. REALLY hope this means he's getting ready for a universal update.

Lots of games have come and gone on my iPhone, but this one has stayed. For free, there's no reason not to snag it. GREAT game with that "just one more time" factor.

I agree that I hope this means that there's an update/upgrade coming.

pretty sure I've never played this... although App Store shows that I already owned it.
I'll give it a spin now!

Thanks Anotherkellydown

Thanks for the heads up Anotherkellydown on Mechanic Panic, i had this once, on an old iPod Touch.
One of few games that was never deleted. I did however lose that iTunes account... but that's okay.
Looks like many of the games i played years ago, many are no longer being updated for the new generation of Touch devices.

It has been a while since i downloaded any games. Never had so many In-App Purchase games. Once you bought the game, that it. There is a whole new crop of game developers out there, making new, better games. Looking forward to filling up my iPod Touch.
