Sure, Mobigame is celebrating the coming of 2011 a little late according to iCal, but its App Store New Year Sale is worth swallowing that glorious moment of serendipity that comes along with pointing out the obvious. For this weekend only, three of Mobigames’ releases -- Trucker's Delight, Edge, Perfect Cell -- are on sale, ranging from free to a dollar off.
In general, all three of these games are solid offerings and totally worth of eating your precious hard drive (or flash memory) space. Here's some handy-dandy blurbs about each if you want to dig around a bit before you start purchasing:
Truckers Delight, Free - [Review] - [Forum Thread] - Truckers Delight is an episodic retro racer filled with the overtly sexy kind of stuff that would make your mother blush. Eli got his hands on this earlier in 2010 and said he had a surprising amount of fun with it, though I think we all know why. Unfortunately, there's still no sign of the second episode.
Edge, $2.99 - [Review] - [Forum Thread] - OK, so in Edge, you're put in control of a cube that can move around in 3D space. The point is to get your cube dude to the endpoint of a given maze, most often by a combination of platforming and puzzlin'. It's a cool game that has won a lot of awards, so it's definitely worthy of your coin.
Perfect Cell, $1.99 - [Review] - [Forum Thread] - We have nothing but good things to say about this game. Check out Jared's glowing review, which spells out what this game is: "It's sort of a mishmash of genres, with elements of action, platforming, stealth, and puzzle. These end up working really well together, and coupled with intuitive controls and a beautiful graphics engine, Perfect Cell is a good time from beginning to end."
I know, I know, a dollar off of Perfect Cell doesn't bring it down to that .99 cent price point that everyone undoubtedly wants, but hey, the game just came out and is a ton of fun. These sales are only in effect this weekend, so don't delay if you've had your eye on any of these games.
