iDracula is majorly slipping in the top 100.

I know it's probably because of the price increase, but iDracula has fallen to 22nd place in the top 100 apps, I think this is a great game, and I hope things turn around for it,

Edit: hehe, this is my 100th post.

yeah, it sucks especially because without steady income from it updates won't come.

It's not slipping... It's just that everyone bought it already

Once you're on top there is no place to go but down

Well, being in the 22nd position out of thousands of apps is still a great accomplishment, but I think it deserves to rank higher than games like shotgun pro. :S

A lot of people wrote negative reviews when the update was long in coming and made it drop to 3 1/2 stars for weeks, now it's back up to 4 1/2 but it's too late. Hope they're happy.

That is not always the case my friend. Look at fieldrunners they were slipping and now since they dropped the price for springbreak the title has soared back into the top 25 i think. the game was number 50 before the price drop. if the game has great content it can climb back up and if they do more major updates then idrac can climb up again.

I was kidding, hence the wink.

Fieldrunners is a bit different though. They haven't lowered their price since the game first came out! 4.99 is a deep entry point since the app store didn't have much quality back then. This new price, as short lived as it is, is getting them sales rather than the content.

iDracula added lots of content and adjusted their price accordingly and it's seeing a drop.

Though in the end I do agree with your point
