    So how come it's still showing up at 4.99 in the marketplace??? This has happened on a couple of deals of the week. I want the game but not at 4.99.

    It's showing as 3.99 here in the UK instead of 2.29, so it's a no buy here too.

    It's not dumbed-down at all. It's just a totally different puzzle RPG, based on Castlevania SOTN instead of Puzzle Quest.

    Enigmo looks nice but there's so many different methods to transport the water across into the jug, I think it would drive me nuts.

    Might be tempted, but i'll have to have another go again later. :)

    Wow that was quick, I thought it was for a week. Was it just for 1 day or did I miss the reductions for a whole week DarkSynopsis ?

    3 other games went down in price at the same time as Enigmo I don't believe Microsoft ever said anything I had assumed they would end up being for a week but seems it was only so many hours I don't think they even lasted a day! I find it hard to believe it was a mistake on Microsoft's part to put down 3 other games... I'm still kinda hoping its a bug that they have gone back up in price...

    Yes that's a strange one. Maybe it's like the Monopoly problem, it never appeared at the reduced price until about day 5. Fingers crossed it's a similar problem. :)

    :O I had forgot about that I did not get around to looking at Monopoly till the deal was near enough up! I do hope so I would like Assassin's Creed at that reduced price! Not tried it but I enjoy the AC Series :P Already got Full House Poker and still feel that price for Sonic is to much when I have it on XBLA.

    Yeah I know what you mean. Only if it's cheap enough does it really justify a duplicate game I guess. :)

    Hmm when I asked KarlStricker on Twitter about the 3 games going back to normal price he said.

    hmmm.. Could be some Black Friday specials in the works. More details next week.
    Looks like we can expect some Black Friday deals... Can't see why they would not be worldwide so maybe these 3 games changed early by mistake.

    To me it's dummed down because you cannot move around a map and open chests or avoid encounters. There's no lockpicking or quests and the graphics are way worse. Yes, I know that's because it's based off of SOTN. They tried doing what Puzzle Quest does with the battle system and in my opinion they failed at it. It's still a fun game but it's a lot like PQ but it's just not nearly as fleshed out. The UI is terrible also.

    I agree about the UI, but you definitely move around an expansive map in Castlevania Puzzle. There's just not as many side things to do, for better or worse. I love both games, but I find Castlevania Puzzle more exciting and it has a much better story and music. PQ 2 however has more staying power and perhaps a bit more variety, though the battles sure do go on forever (comparatively).

    Tomorrows 'Deal of the Week', for our beloved phones is geoDefense.

    Of course that should really be geoDefence. ;)

    Give the trial a go and you can snap it up tomorrow if you like it. :)
