Wow 40% ohmy.gif

I helped contribute to that BTW, lol. I knew about them before they came out. My car was broken into on a Friday and the next day I went out for food, normally I'd get Taco Bell or KFC, but for some reason I went to BK that day, oddly it was the very first day they were there, they actually sold them to me 2 days early. laugh.gif

Yeah I bought all 3 of those games lol. For 12 bucks total it was worth it, I'm kinda surprised they got a 40% increase though, that's a lot of games sold. I got all 200 achievements from Pocket Bike Racer tongue.gif

That 40% increase will probably pay for the production of those games...
