George Washington’s name day came and went without the dozens of celebratory App Store sales we associate with federal holidays. I’ll admit it; I was ticked about this at first. Not only was George the US’ first president, he was also the tallest, strongest, and best endowed. A dude as great and beautiful as he was needs to be honored by price-slashings. But, hey, now I'm not so sore about the situation. Gameloft realigned my humours and tamed my choler with this beauty of a sale, which sees 30 of its games reduced to less than a dollar.

Here’s the list:

Asphalt 5
Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles HD
Blokus HD
Brain Challenge HD
Chess Classics HD
Dungeon Hunter HD
Fishing Kings
Frankenstein - The Dismembered Bride HD
Gangstar: West Coast Hustle
Hero of Sparta HD
Hero of Sparta 2 HD
Let’s Golf
Modern Combat: Sandstorm
NFL 2010 HD
NFL 2011 HD
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within [and its HD version]
Real Soccer 2010 [and its HD version]
Real Soccer 2011
Real Tennis HD
Secrets of the Vatican HD
Shrek Forever After HD
Shrek Kart
Skater Nation
Star Battalion [and its HD version]
Tom Clancy’s HAWX
War in the Pacific
Zombie Infection HD

That’s a lot of games, and a lot of iPad HD versions for sale, right? Oh, and to be clear, I’ve no idea what Gameloft is throwing a sale for... but I’ll go ahead and keep pretending that its celebrating the greatest man (not named Tesla) who ever graced this Earth.

    I hope EA follows suit; Dead Space and NBA Jam will be insta-buys once they're on sale.

      NBA Jam is well worth it at full price. Best money I've ever spent on an app hands down.

  • SorryGL

    God I hate Gameloft and it's crappy clones.

    • Bigred447uk

      Oh well I hate haters ! Oh ... Er ... That means I hate myself ! And now I'm sounding as dumb as you !

      Anyway peace - and enjoy your hating because they are not going away. Plenty of hate food for you.

      (leaves to buy Driver)

  • DrPeabody

    I assume its because the iPad2 is being released soon and they want to push their games to the top charts like they did with the iphone4

  • Chris Matchett

    Curious about Dungeon Hunter a bit. Uno would be nice but 123Mb for a card game? Overall every other GameLoft game has left my dead inside and the ones I have bought have promptly vanished.

    • Ahiru Nakamura

      Uno is great if you can enjoy multiplayer games (whether it be online or local wi-fi) and grab some achievements, but if you plan to play offline, then you're not gonna miss anything...

  • Ben Ruddock

    Sale doesn't seem to be on in UK...

  • AmpliHelix

    Asphalt 5, Driver, Gangstar, and Modern Combat for me. Once Asphalt 6 & Modern Combat 2 drop prices then i'll grab those

    • AmpliHelix

      Dammit.... I bought Gangstar but it's for the iPad version!
      TA please fix the title as it's for Gangstar: West Coast Hustle *HD*

  • Brawnydt

    Let's not forget Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibnez as some of the greatest men to grace the Earth!

  • Ahiru Nakamura

    Gameloft's sales are ALWAYS welcomed, despite their games are mostly knockoffs, they're decent and polished for iOS standards... Love them, for .99c is a must-buy price tag

  • htp24

    Today (Feb 24th) is Steve Jobs' birthday.

  • Archie Garcia

    Sales on HD iPad games?!?! It looks like they are celebrating the soon announcement of the iPad 2. Thats what I'm gussing

  • Sinnical

    So which games on the list are must haves?

  • TurboSwag

    I choose to believe that they are celebrating my birthday

    • Anonymous

      You ruined the surprise!.. 🙁

  • Guest

    Aha! This makes up for them mostly ignoring the iPad in their Valentine's sales. *Nabs N.O.V.A*

  • Deadclown

    Awesome post, Brad. 🙂

  • DKainer

    I love the tongue in cheek nature of this news. Especially the bit about Tesla since he probably IS the greatest (technological) person to "grace this Earth"!!
    Well done Brad Nicholson 🙂

  • Samhansen08

    Oh my its Brad Nicholson! we at Destructoid miss ya!
