I currently have 118 paid for apps :oops: Although I've had an iOS device since Christmas 2009

I really want NFS Hot Pursuit but like most of you, I refuse to pay £2.99 because I know fine well two days after I pay that it'll be 59p
'gulp'

I have 254 ! (32 gig device)

Although i've had this for one month (ahem!)

I was the same with my Pocket PC, loved filling that up with stuff and dipping in and out. As you can tell i love the variety ! Completed Hero of Sparta I the other day, was excellent, well worth the measley £1.19 or how much it was.

Just really takes me back to the 80's, tons of games, good fun going through some of the game apps finding out what ones are the best or the ones i may like. Loads of variety, seeing previews, youtube videos, friends saying what ones to go for. Just an excellent 'scene' with iOS at the mo. Like the way i can have a go of a racer, then perhaps an RPG and then a retro classic. Then check twitter to see about upcoming games/sports news/other stuff, have a look at the game review apps to see what ones are coming out soon. Love it

Thanks for the heads up, worth it at that price! Metal Gear Solid Touch has also been reduced to £1.19. I played the demo version and its pretty fun, worth it for that price I think.

Yep, for only 59p the game is a steal! I was tempted to buy Metal Gear Solid: Touch at that reduced price... until I discovered the US are getting it for the an even lower price equivalent to 59p. :x

I just purchased Pac-Man Championship Edition at the currently reduced price of £1.79. Okay, its not as good as Pac-Man Championship Edition DX for PS3/Xbox 360 but its still a fun game nonetheless and I really like how they've implemented "swipe" controls as one of the available control schemes.

Yeah i purchased that championship edition as well.

Good times the next few weeks, Double Dragon out in March, this month Speedball at some point and then 'perhaps' Battle Squadron at some point. (It was announced a while back, just waiting for it to come out).

Love all 3 of those games, hopefully they'll be decent.

The swipe controls work very well for the original version too.

Yeah, I was a little bit gutted at the whole USA price thing with MGS but as I really enjoyed the demo I caved in anyway! Zombie Crisis 3D is pretty good fun as well, there is a strange satisfaction blowing away tons of zombies with the shotgun :mrgreen:

I grabbed Speedforge as well for 59p which is a futuristic Wipeout style racing game. Pretty decent as well, as with Wipeout (and Mario Kart) the missle items can be a pain when your trying to get a good lead but so far the difficulty isn't too punishing so I can sorta forgive that.

I gave in and picked up Dead Space since it was reduced to £1.70. I also gave Zombie Infection a go and its easily better than Capcom's own effort at putting Resident Evil on the iPhone. The controls are more streamlined and the game has larger levels to explore as opposed to bite sized chunks of stages which RE4 had.
