Or did I just dream that?Its so hard to tell with windows phone games, since the prices vary from $0 - $4.99, with a lot of them either starting or going to $0 every so often (Rabbids) and the prices get reset a lot. I think this one just went off the listings for a while.

    ROBBERT DHT said:This demotivates me to buy games from them at the full price on release. I know it's my own choice but I did pay 10 euro for both of them together. To see them for 4 euro together now is kinda a backstab towards the early buyers. I know 6 euro isn't much but it's more the principle.In percentage terms, its pretty large, 60 % off in 1 month. Game companies need to consider their customer's perceived value of their games. If we see huge early price drops as the norm, why would we ever buy day one, unless we loved the game and were waiting for it. This is almost never the case with Windows Phone and Windows 8 games, since they usually just drop on us all of a sudden, you almost never see articles about them in advance, or ads for them. I hadn't heard of these until I saw a release article here, and its a big name franchise (although the phone versions have been losers)

    May have to try these games out now that they are on sale.
    because i get poor service at my home no matter what carrier and I am home 95% of the time (work from home) and Verizon was bleeding me dry

    plus Sprint is paying our cancellation fees

    Just bought it on my Windows phone and it doesn't work, read the reviews before wasting £1.49 on it!

    St1ng r said:Just bought it on my Windows phone and it doesn't work, read the reviews before wasting £1.49 on it!When a game only has 2.5 stars, don't you check the reviews anyway? Would make sense to do a tiny bit of research as to the low scores before purchasing.

    But someone earlier said it works on windows 8.1 now.

    So is the Win8 version worth $2? My WP can't run it so I only have one choice.

    I would purchase it if only my PC was on 8.1 ... But the updates just keep crashing.

    My laptop is 8.1, won't run AC Pirates though. Just get a blue screen before it dashboards me.
