Chopper on sale at 99c

Chopper is temporarily on sale at 99c - iTunes Link

Usually Chopper is $4.99, so it's a pretty big saving. It's not the first time it's been 99c, and it won't be the last, but now is as good a time as any to get it

In case anyone is interested about why I'm dropping the price so much, it's because I want to see Chopper on as many iPhones as possible. In my mind 5 sales at 99c is way better than 1 sale at $5.

But if I permanently keep it at 99c it devalues it too much. I believe Chopper is worth more than 99c, so a sale now and then is a happy middle ground for me.

Have a look at the Chopper 2 thread too, I'm keen to hear suggestions for the sequel.

I bought Chopper the day it came out, and I can not wait for the sequel. .99 is a great deal for this game so much fun and the ability to save when you want to is perfectly executed because if you die during the early levels you can just go right back to the save and play again. I wasted a whole semester of composition playing this game, i got a C in the class but I passed the game.

Nice to know! I picked up your gem for the Mac last year and for the iPhone on July 10th for $7.99, but I felt it too be worth every cent!

I'm extremely excited for the sequel

maybe he was busy or out of town and didn't get the chance to stop by when he first put it on sale.

I was actually moving house! Back to work now though.

I'll be pushing an update to Chopper within the next day or two. A bug has been found and fixed, and I will be adding the option to use left/right sides of the screen to drop bombs and fire the machine gun.

So with the new version coming, there are a few promo codes left over, and I thought I'd post some here.

Normal rules apply: first in first served, and they only work in the US store. Enjoy

I think I got it for 99c too, last year, maybe? I dunno, I've had it for a while. Can't beat that price.
