A co-worker turned me onto the site TouchArcade, which is dedicated to games for the iPhone and iPod Touch. I’ve realized only recently that there’re a lot of great games available for the iPhone OS, and with prices ranging from $1 to $5, some of them have given me more fun per dollar spent than console games like Mario Strikers Charged. Who needs a DS when you’ve got an iPhone (especially now that New Super Mario Bros. is coming to the Wii)?
If you spend any time reading TouchArcade, you’ll quickly realize that a lot of games that normally go for $3 or more will have short duration sales in an effort to boost their download rankings. Higher rankings = higher sales, even when the game reverts to the higher price point. If you’re a cheap bastard like me, you can save money by subscribing to TouchArcade’s 99 cent category feed (I have it on iGoogle) and swooping in on the games you want to buy. Have fun!
