I thought that at first, too. Then I started getting stars from the random tasks, the occasional jackpot from the slot machine spins, etc. At that point you realize that coins get earned faster than it appears at first blush.
Still, I think I might spring for one bit of DLC for it, the one that doubles coin value collected. I'm definitely likely to pull 2 dollars worth of enjoyment from it, so I can live with myself.
I am kinda confused by Samurai Bloodshow. Is the IAP just there to let people skip the slog? Or are there things that are only available through IAP? How grindy is it?
Bang! and Pocket RPG are both on sale for $.99.
I like Pocket RPG more on the iPhone than on the iPad.
I haven't really looked at Bang! yet. I had it on my appshopper wishlist but now that it's actually down in price I find myself wondering how the hell a game as focused on bluffing as Bang! could possibly play well on iOS.
I picked up Bang a while ago just so I could learn the rules and decide if I wanted to buy it. It played pretty good, but I'm sure it's more interesting in person.
Frantic Frigates. Free. Fun.
Nobody played Gesundheit?
I don't have an iDevice but the demo for PC was fantastic. Hope they port it to a good platform where people don't complain if a game costs more than 99 cents.
The venerable Harbor Master is free for a day, on both iPhone and iPad.
That was quite good. And your facial hair is impeccable!
This has instantly become my favorite iOS app. I already can't wait for the inevitable in-app purchase tracks. The idea of a low-cost Kutiman simulator is brilliant.
Edit: Oh, duh. "This guy" is the creative director at Harmonix. No wonder he got so many up so quickly. Kind of takes the homegrown feel out of it, but still a neat app.

I've got an email letting me know Grand Prix Story by Kairosoft is out and about. Should check that out.
Oh my god, I'm going to have to try VidRhythm, aren't I?
Kickstarter now. If you are unsure if you want to support it I will Quote from their blurb:
It even has a Red-Shirt supporter level... COME ON! :D The video looks like so much fun.Taking influences from X-Com, Game Dev Story and The Sims, Star Command is a game where you are the creator, captain and crew.
Looking forward to its release, they plan Beta already for October.
Looking like a $25 shot for me.
Edit: And done.

Kinda surprised they don't have a rewards tier that includes the game itself.
Man, wish I had 1k just to be a character in the game. :)
