This is probably the result of tripling the price more than anything else.

They got greedy, should have went to 1.99. This shows you all developers that an expensive app doesn't pay!

anyone has the chart of iDracula position since they raised the price?
I wanna see how steep it is.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

I can't explain how Pocket God has been #1 for so long, I would have thought they would have reached some kind of market saturation point weeks ago.

It was bound to happen. For some reason this game doesn't attract people. It did for maybe a few weeks then declined very steeply. I hope this game gets back on the charts cuz it's a wonderful game.

Apple really should do something about the app ranking. Three bucks isn't unreasonable for this game, it's just that we have been conditioned to expect 99 cent games. Which is fine for the cheap throw-away games, but devs with higher quality apps have to cannibalize themselves to get noticed. Then the good devs leave and all we're left with are REAL 99 cent apps.

Maybe change the top 25 to sort by actual revenue made rather than just download counts.
