Backbreaker, Backbreaker2, Jenga, Jenga HD - Now $0.99 each

I just did a random search in the Australian appstore and it's on sale for 1.19
Not sure if it's an international sale or not since it's still $2.99 on appshopper

EDIT: Backbreaker 1 and 2 are on sale for 99c as well, so I think Jenga will go on sale everywhere else soon.

Too bad it's only the iPhone version and not the iPad version

Jenga on the iPhone does not sound exciting to me, unfortunately. iPad is a different story. But it's on my wish list.

Shamek they haven't released Backbreaker 2 for the iPad. I got 1 for free, and I was VERY IMPRESSED with the quality.

And I barely even like football

No problem! Do you mind posting your impressions after you try it out? I'm wondering how the game will transfer over to the touch screen.

Game Impressions

Finally had a chance to install this on the iPad and play around with it for a bit. The best thing I can say about the game is there's no pieces to setup and I only paid a buck for it.

The physics seem a little floaty especially when trying to place a block on the top of the pile. Often times it won't register that the block is placed so you end up moving it around until if finally lets go. Other times when pulling a block out the pile will tumble over unrealistically where large portions of blocks just fall in a lump still all pieced together. In a real game those blocks would have spilled everywhere.

All in all it's a neat diversion but with all the other games I have on my backlog I'll probably never touch it again.
