Shopping for school supplies is rough, and they just don't make Lisa Frank stickers like they used to. It's that time of year for back to school sales at J.C.

NimbleBit made its name on slower-paced simulations like Tiny Tower and Pocket Planes, which charmed with their retro-leaning pixel aesthetics and impressed with surprisingly friendly free-to-play models.
