We're not sure what has possessed the publishers of dozens of amazing iPhone games to decide that tonight was the night to hold a massive sale -- but it's happened. And you can benefit from it.

A huge number of high profile games have dropped in price to all time lows. The number of high quality games you can pick up for $0.99 right now is amazing. We hand picked a few to highlight here, but below we've listed dozens more. Every game on this list is worth the sale price, so now's your chance.

A few notable games dropping to $0.99 include:

Here's the rest of the list, grouped by price. Unfortunately, this appears to be an iPhone / iPod Touch phenomenon mostly. Only two games (marked below) are iPad native.

$0.99

$1.99

$2.99+

    Damn! That's too many good games... I don't even have the space anymore to put them, but i so want to buy them!

    • http://twitter.com/NoSuperMan ImNoSuperMan

      Well, you can have Madden NFL 11 for iphone and ipad for 99cents each in international stores compared to US price of $13 for iPad and $8 for iphone version ;)

      • http://gerardodiaz.com Falsoman

        Yeah, but i don't like madden :DI wanted Mirror's Edge cheap :P

        Though maybe it's a good thing since i just bought like 7 games.

    I. Love. Sales.

  • http://twitter.com/NoSuperMan ImNoSuperMan

    G-damn it. Too many Sales. Too many new games. Worst day for an appshopper gamer with limited iTunes Credit :p

  • tsharpfilm

    Great... Now I get to spend the next hour reading through reviews, and trying to figure out which of these games I should get... (:D

  • iphone jim

    Damn. Good thing I put some more money in my account just this week.

  • addybojangles

    Can't recommend Osmos enough. What a gorgeous game. Kind of that flOw/Flower (for you PS3 fans) experience on an iPhone...

  • Spacecowgoesmoo

    Woo, I'm having a great week! Got Persona 4 new for $5 a few days ago from spending some built up credit on Amazon, and now here's Zenonia 2, Hybrid 2, and Doom RPG 2 for $5 more :D

  • Kizna

    Zenonia (the first) is also on sale for .99! I love sales, so I hope everyone can benefit for sure. I'm just a little bummed I didn't wait a day. I bought 4 of these games this morning. Kicking myself a little right now. :P

    • http://twitter.com/ross_hudgins Ross Hudgins

      Yeah, I missed the NHL2K11 introductory price at $2, and paid the full $7! Now it's on for 99 cents...crazy market. :)

  • http://twitter.com/pobregizmo Pobre Gizmo

    Can't recommend Tony Hawk enough. Still playing that game (was playing all week) and I bought it almost when it came out. Have now beaten it with all but two characters. Love that game, and it is an absolute steal at $1.99

  • Thomazfranzotti

    And as always game companys forget to out their ipad games on sale. Not asking to make all games universal apps, but if you tive the iphone app a 50% sale, why not do the same to the ipad version?

  • Anonymous

    Ugh. I purchased and gifted so many great games on this list. And then I bought Blue wave 2nd defense. I barely have time for the hundreds of games I already own but I just can't say no to these great deals. Thanks TouchArcade!

  • Tom

    How long are these sales usually on? Just one day

    • http://twitter.com/NoSuperMan ImNoSuperMan

      No one knows. Could be a couple of days or even a week. Could go back up in price in 5 minutes, before you even manage to click the buy button. So make sure you get whatever you think is worth the current price for you, asap :)

  • Anonymous

    i just bought way too many apps. At least i only paid around $20 for a whole slew of new games that i prolly won't touch for more than 5 minutes. Yay!

  • Jack

    Avoid assassin creed 2. it is unplayable and ubisoft seems never bother to update it. shitty company.

    • Dyscode

      that´s what makes me think, too.
      I don´t mind .99 but bad game update politics

      • Sunr1der

        Assassins Creed 2 works fine for me when I bought it today.

      • Jack

        Check the 'most recent comment' in app store review. You'll understand its not isolated case.

  • Nick

    Mirror's Edge and RISK show up as their normal prices in app store for me. : Could some of these specials be region locked or something? I'm in Australia.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Werner-Ruotsalainen/685558551 Werner Ruotsalainen

    Hey! I heard that the new Shift update erases the TOP cars and makes you pay for them AGAIN! Is this true?

  • Jon

    WTF?

  • http://twitter.com/CrimsonPaw Ryan Curry

    Thinking I'm going to grab Zenonia 2, the first one was decent and it sounds like 2 is a bit of an improvement.
