• Bang! [HD] Price Drop
• iPad 2 at ToysRUs
• Reiner Knizia's Money Free
• Dungeon Solitaire Bug Fix
• Disc Drivin' Update
• Tikal Screen Shots from OpenFeint

• Bang! [HD] Price Dropped - Apr 15
Palzoun & SpinVector have dropped the price on Bang! [HD] the Official Video Game to $3.99. That's an all time low in the just over a month that the app has been launched!

• iPad 2 at ToysRUs - Apr 17
Obviously the iPad is a great platform for games. Now Toys R Us has embraced it as well. The toy retailer will now carry the iPad 2.

• Reiner Knizia's Money Free - Apr 17
Hah! What's this about free Money? Who doesn't love free Money! Go get it!

• Dungeon Solitaire Bug Fix Submitted to Apple - Apr 18
Not any big news, but kind of an example of how closely some developers listen to their users (and some in threads on this very site!) and fix problems right away. I'm impressed that JC Connors monitors a thread on his game, Dungeon Solitaire, and responds so quickly with a fix. Great job JC!

• Disc Drivin' Updated - Apr 18
So apparently there was this bug in the Canyon Jump track on Disc Drivin' that would cause your disc to bounce back and forth between turbo pads 142 times. I leave it to you to contemplate the mystery of that number. In any case, it's been fixed in version 1.6. Strangely, at the time of this writing, the fix is only available for the iPhone version with the iPad version not yet available. I also include a video, mercifully cued to waste only 20 seconds of your life instead of the original mind-numbing 2 minutes, and taken by our own thatmarkguy.

What's new

• Fixed Canyon Jump turbo loop

• Tikal Almost Here - Apr 18
By the time some of you read this, you may well have Codito Development's Tikal in your hot little hands. But the anticipation is just killing me, so I thought I would just post some of these shots I came across while digging around in OpenFeint. It's no secret, obviously it needed to be tested and played. So it would appear A) Tikal utilizes OpenFeint and B) It will sell for $4.99. I can't remember if that's old news or not. In any case, it's news to me. Here are some (soon to be completely redundant) screenshots.
