Yup, it's definitely a bargain, just not as good of a bargain as Space Monkey since it's now free!! LOL

Thanks for that link. I'd been tempted to get it for awhile, and now, at just 59p, there's no excuse not to! :-)

I can't believe people would pay more than one dollar for this game. It looks terrible and there is no point to the game other than beating the clock. Good thing i got it for $.99 or i'd be pissed...

While I haven't purchased this game, that is my main reason, even at $.99, it still doesn't seem worth it.
I'm starting to think that a huge majority of people are buying anything and everything at $.99 just because it's on sale. Personally, even Billy Frontier at $.99 still doesn't seem worth it, as it has no replayability feature. Once you're done, you're done.
And some might say that's cheap, and it's only the price of a coffee. And yes, while it may ONLY be the price of a coffee, after one hundred $1 purchase, you've now spent $100.
Don't get me wrong, I'm totally willing to spend money on quality games and have done so already, but there comes a point where you still have to be somewhat picky. That's just my 2 cents.

Had you spent that $100 on 100 cups of coffee, you'd be seriously jittery and unable to play any of your 99 cent games.

I bought Moto Chaser for 99 cents. I haven't played it yet, though, so I think I qualify as one of those people. Of course there are tons of 99 cent games I haven't and won't buy, so maybe not.

I agree I find this to be a waste of $1. Many of these curious george purchases we are making are for novelty games with hardly any lasting appeal. We just want to check out these games on this new platform. That's ok I'm getting burned on many of my purchases but that comes with the territory. Even so I'm mad at myself for falling for the "hype" machine a lot though.

Actually, CroMag is much more superior to MotoChaser in every way: graphics, sound, controls, "funness". The only reason people hate on this game is the lack of a story-mode. That would've made CroMag a perfect 10 game.
