4thjulyAs regular App Store visitors are already very familiar with, any old holiday or special occasion is a great time to put your games on sale. In the US this week we're celebrating Independence Day on July 4th, and developers are already getting in on the price-dropping action.

Warner Bros. have dropped the price of most of their major game releases to a buck for the week, and there's a few other great titles up for grabs at a temporary sale price. Here's a list of notable game sales and all relevant links to get more information if you're interested.

Warner Bros. Sales

Other Sales

Late Addition:

There's really nothing bad on the entire list of sales if you've got a few dollars to burn and are looking for some new diversions, but seriously, don't skip on Bastion if you haven't bought it already. It's not to be missed. And for me personally, even though I don't typically like tower defense, Fieldrunners 2 is one of my all-time favorites. Finally, it's worth mentioning that Paper Titans was recently updated with a batch of expert levels, addressing our main complaint about the game which was that it was too easy.

I'm pretty sure there will be other noteworthy price drops this week, whether for the 4th of July or otherwise, so we'll be sure to let you know when more sales hit.

    Colin McRae Rally is already discounted also lol

    • XCool

      Looks to be back at $4.99. I guess it was meant for the 4th of July and they must have mistakenly scheduled it for the 3rd instead.

  • iarepan

    Is Man of Steel worth picking up?

    • C. Stubb

      If you really just can't get enough of those Infinity Blade-ish dodge-and-swipe fighters, then I'd say go for it. Just don't expect anything too substantial; you may find the rather limited content grows stale after a while.

      It's ok I guess, I thought it would be better than it actually is...but it's ok for a 5-10 minute blast on the bus.

    In case anyone hasn't played Bastion, I can't recommend it enough, especially for a dollar.

    It's in my top five iPhone games of all time and honestly is worth picking up just to hear the awesome soundtrack, let alone the actual game.

      It was worth it at $15 on the PC so $.99 is just crazy. If you have a PC though I would recommend waiting for the Steam Sale and picking it up there because the controls are a bit better and it looks better. Still the game is by far one of the highest quality iOS games and the devs are incredibly indie and its amazing the quality of the game they put out. Every part of the game is great and amazingly produced. Buy it!

    • Zerol3onheart

    • wingz

    • Carl

      Disclaimer: You can't buy this game if you have an iPhone 4 or lower. For that reason, I can't and won't buy the game.

  • toxiccheese

    Tapper World Tour is awesome. Love that game.

  • Atangerine

    I would buy Bastion... If I had a 4s or better 🙁

  • Kill the Clowns

    Also this 4th of July, the tower defense game ‘KILL THE CLOWNS’ goes free to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch to celebrate Independence Day!

    • chrisbaker3

      Not free on the US app store.

      • Kill the Clowns

        It would be tonight, it's going to be free the 4th of July, all day long. 😉

      • chrisbaker3

        Thanks for the clarification.

  • Reignmaker

    If you haven't played Bastion on the iPad yet, the time is now. One of the more polished offerings out there.

  • dancj

    I'd be tempted by Fieldrunners 2, but I can't justify spending three times as much just because I've got an iPad.

  • Zenfar

    Don't miss Bastiom it is amazing!

  • sam2012

    Xcom no sales? :-p

  • http://www.youtube.com/MetalJesusRocks Metal Jesus Rocks

    You guys should mention that Spiral Episode 1 is on sale too! A game you highly recommended just a few weeks ago, and is half off

  • Jaylewl

    Is Harry potter Lego 1-4 and 5-7 worth to buy?

    • Coconut Island Apps

      I have only played Harry Potter Lego 1-4 Its very point and click (do this do that) no real challenging game play. The story is the same as the films. I guess its worth picking up for 99c but don't pay full price for it.

      • Jaylewl

        I read some reviews. They said it crashes a lot...

      • Coconut Island Apps

        I have been playing it on Ipad2 never had a crash

  • Dixon Koontz

    Go Home Dinosaurs hasn't dropped to .99 yet. Watched a gameplay vid, looks really neat, what's an extra buck?

  • Zenfar

    Happy 4th of July!!!
    I will have Brigands and Barbarians codes in the forums on Saturday and Sunday

  • spsummer

    Bastion is a steal at .99, awesome on the iPad.
