I was really looking forward to Terminator Salvation, and I instantly bought it when it was released for $9.99, it was a horrible deal because they had a price drop the next week and it took me an hour to beat the game

Neonscape for $3.99

Meant to grab the lite, got the full instead - would have asked for my money back, but figured I liked the game enough.

Also the price dropped to $0.99 a few weeks after I bought it.

I hate to be a CAG, but an app has to be really special for me to spend more than $0.99 on it these days, about 1/3 of the apps I've bought in the last month (that weren't $0.99 already) have dropped to that price. Sometimes a couple of days after I bought it.

But, all the promo codes I manage to snag off of TouchArcade more than make up for that!

I knew I held out on Dropship for some reason!

I feel bad for people that paid for them and now have adds. The new plus+ versions help fix that, but they should have updated the paid versions first!

Dropship I don't mind as much, I got it long ago and it was probably my fav ngmoco game. Then came these drastic drops on everything else...I heard even WordFu's following suit. not buying anything from them anytime soon

anyway another pretty bad deal was Spore...

Urban Tycoon

1.99 for a Promised Sim City style game, that never got updated, and you can build a thriving city of millions with just a hotdog stand...Pure Absolute Crap

Asphalt 4 absolutely hated it. Paid $8 for it. Ughh I couldve saved up for MCS.

I remember Labyrinth used to be $9.99 but is now $0.99 I think...
It was one of the first apps I got on my iPod... but I should've at least waited for a price drop or something. D:

And you didn't ask Apple for your money back?

Go punch that "Report a problem" button ASAP!
