We’ve just gotten word from Connect2Media that their marble-popping game Tumblebugs has just undergone a big competitive price drop down to $0.99.  This is good news for publisher Connect2Media and developer TAG Games, since Tumblebugs’ original $2.99 price tag made it hard for the game to compete against more established (and feature-rich) titles like Stone Loops! and LUXOR.  You can check out my full review of this title on AppGamer.net.
