That is a great site, and I visit it daily.

.....

Also, The Banner Saga is $4.99 today (reduced from $9.99), and Super Hexagon is FREE. Go get 'em, boys!

Nice! I'm in for Super Hexagon and Tanooki's post last night alerted me to Arkanoid being a modest $1.99 so since i'm contractually obligated to pick up all breakout-style games, there we go.

You's played through Nervous Brickdown (DS), right? It is one of my very favorite games, and it blows all other breakout-style games out of the water, IMO.

EDIT: I really should list this game in the "underrated games" thread...

Nervous Brickdown is on my 'want' list, looking for it complete. Once I have some extra paypal funds, I'll probably nab it on eBay. Great call.

Dariusburst SP
Raystorm
Rayforce
Space Invaders (multiple types)
Bust-A-Move (mutliple)

Nice. I will be picking up Arkanoid, Darius, and Rayforce. (And, if you haven't already, you must pick up Space Invaders Infinity Gene. It's awesome.)

FYI...

Ys Chronicles I (iOS) is discounted from $4.99 to $2.99 today! It is a remake of ths first Ys game, and it is the only Ys game available for iOS. A remake of the second game was announced a few months ago, however, and I suspect the sale is in anticipation of that game's release. Accordingly, those of you who have not yet played this wonderful game may want to jump on this deal!

Hopiko (iOS) is free right now. I downloaded it last night, and I think it is pretty cool. It is well-suited for touch controls - I actually cannot imagine playing it any other way - and it is a lot of fun. It also has good art direction and a fantastic soundtrack.
