It's a good time to be a fan of Telltale Games. If you haven't noticed already, the prices of most of Telltale's games are now a mere 99 cents on the App Store.

What's the occasion, you ask? The cuts are in celebration of the release of Monkey Island Tales 1 HD [$6.99] for the iPad, Telltale tells us. And while the sale doesn't actually include the new release, it's nice to save some cash on the companies' other solid titles.

Here's the full list of the games on sale:

I think I think that Puzzle Agent is the most remarkable game on this list. It has its share of logic flaws, technical baggage, and interface woes, but it rises above all of it with sheer strength of character, oddness, and unique gameplay. I also think that most Sam & Max fans would agree on this same point in regards to The Penal Zone, too. That game, for sure, has tons of technical issues, but Telltale successfully turns the adventure game formula on its head with Max's newfound time-travel power. You'll see solutions before you see the puzzles and then have to work backwards to solve them. Wild stuff!

Of course, Monkey Island Tales 1 HD is the best of the bunch and it comes highly recommended, though it's not on sale. Sad face. Oh! And this sale ends on January 3, 2011. Buy if you want while you can.

    Telltale might release the occasional game to the app store, but it never follows them up with any of the (many) sequels and the only addressing of playability issues it has done is to release new games with some of those issues fixed. I was hyped for Back to the Future on the iPad, but if I'm never going to get the second through fifth episodes, why bother?

    The second game in the Monkey Island Special Edition series is also on sale.
