It's that time of the week again, and the only thing that can make Friday even better is lots and lots of free or cheap games. This week oddly enough is absolutely loaded with great freebies. As usual, the standard iTunes price change disclaimer applies in that the prices listed here are current as the time of this posting, but are subject to change at any time. If you want any of these games (especially the freebies), grab them now.

FaceFighter, $1.99 → FREE

Appy Entertainment's crazy fighting game allows players to either snap a photo or import one from the photo library of someone's face. Whether that's your wife, Neil Patrick Harris, or your cat, the game doesn't care. After that, you're able to fight your new opponent in game. As you pummel them to death, FaceFighter overlays black eyes, a broken nose, swollen lips, and other things on top of their face to indicate the damage you're inflicting.

Sentinel: Mars Defense, 99¢ → FREE

Still one of my favorite tower defense games, Sentinel has everything you'd expect out of a good tower defender. Give this one a spin and if you like it, you'll love the sequel, Sentinel 2: Earth Defense [$2.99], even more.

Other free games worth checking out include:


Space Miner: Space Ore Bust, $4.99 → $1.99

Venan Entertainment's Space Miner is absolutely amazing. Great controls and graphics combine with a fun Asteroids-like core gameplay element that is all wrapped in the wacky Space Miner universe loaded with ship upgrades that will keep you playing until your battery is dead. We absolutely loved the game in our review and since the price drop the game has been rocketing up the top app charts. You don't want to miss this sale.

Other rad games worth picking up that all saw recent price drops include:

Of course this is just a small selection of the games on sale this week. For a full listing, head over to AppShopper where you can see a listing of all games as well as all popular games with recent price changes.

    Just wanted to note that today 2/19 is the 1 year anniversary for Rogue Touch, hence the celebratory sale! Anyone who's missed out on all the dungeon crawling goodness, now is your chance... It'll give you something fun to do while waiting for the Sword of Fargoal update or future release of 100 Rogues :)

    Space Miner at $5 still feels like a bargain to me - anyone who is still on the fence about that game for any reason should have no reason not to buy it on sale.

    • http://www.ChronoSoft.com CommanderData

      I agree with your on Space Miner. It's one of the classic gems of the app store. Anyone who has not bought it and likes RPGs or Asteroids must pick it up now! Those poor guys need a pinball machine for their office after all :)

      • lukeb

        If what's being said is true, and those guys do in fact need a pinball machine for their office, then that shows character on at least someone's part. I bought this game as a show of support for such eco-friendly trends. How far you tend to get on one quarter is symbolic of your consumption values; after all, you chose that machine, as much as you'd like to think it chose you.

    I keep saying I'll never buy an app at full price, and I never learn. That's what I get for buying Space Miner for $5 last week.

    • Tek Jansen

      Yeah, kind of annoying when prices change so spradically, though I still feel like Space Miner was worth the 4.99 I spent.

    • http://www.squarezerostudio.com squarezero

      You can think of the extra three dollars as a contributions to the "Space Miner 2 Fund." ;)

    Space Miner should have held its price! It's never a $1.99 price tag of a game. Anyone who hasn't got it, even if you only use your iPhone/iTouch for listening to music should pick up that game.

    I NEVER comment but I had to say Space Miner is a steal at $1.99. One of the best iphone games I own. Now back to lurking.

    I just find it annoying that the developers of Space Miner said on a forum here that they wouldn't be reducing the price for the foreseeable future. Won't be buying any games at full price anymore. Just going to wait for the inevitable price cut. I know it's only a few Euros but it's the principle. I feel that developers are shooting themselves in the foot by doing this. Space Miner was easily worth €3.99 but if a sequel is released most gamers won't buy at full price because they now know that a price cut is just around the corner. This can only hurt revenues for the developer and therefore affect the funding for future games.

    • Dran

      I dont know if it will hurt their sales in the long term, but at the moment the best way to boost your sales is to climb the ranking on the iphone app lists, and the easiest way to do this is through the weekend slashed prices deal. I bought Space Miner as well for 5 bucks, so this cut annoys me a little, but well, I think of it as having paid 3 extra bucks so I could play the game 2 weeks before the bargain hunters. :p

      Now, I think Ill be waiting for The Deep to get a pricecut too. Any time now... >.>
