The other day we made mention of the upcoming Windows Phone game, Grow. Grow is an fish-eat-fish game that offers 78 levels of play that crosses seven environments. The game is due to launch on April 27th for $2.99. We were recently informed by Epic Pixel, Grow's developer, that the Windows Phone game will now be offered for $1.99.

Remember that huge Easter sale on Xbox Live titles we were so enthusiastic about a short time ago?

That’s good news to Windows Phone gamers as it means we have a new (and more competitive) price point for games! The seven games that...
