Chillingo has also slashed prices of two of its recently released games. Air Mail is a 3D flying game where, from what I can tell, you have to deliver mail while flying one of those old-school biplanes. The Act seems to be a more interesting game; it plays out like an interactive version of those animated comedy films Disney used to make. Both available for just $0.99!
