Historically, we haven’t been able to get very much for a dollar when it comes to video games. Games on physical media sold for $1 at a store are likely not worth the materials they’re made from. At the arcade, a dollar in this economy will get you one play on most games, which will likely last you no more than two minutes.
Over the past few weeks, the majority of my gaming purchases have cost me only a dollar on the iTunes store. If you’ve got an iDevice, a dollar can go a long way.
Do you remember a time before Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System? An era where games like Pac-Man, Space Invaders and Donkey Kong ruled the scene? Pix N’ Love Rush feels like a game heavily inspired by games of that era. For gamers that fondly remember that era, you’ll feel right at home here with it’s modernized pixelated look, chip-tune music and simple play mechanics. For everyone else, there’s still a fun iPhone game worth your $0.99.
