I thought last week that all the games you needed to know were on sale were already on sale. In what is sure to please my critics, I thought wrong. More games went on sale over the weekend and on these days before the annual iTunes freeze, when developers can't make any modifications until December 29th. While we're hearing that charts may not freeze this year, it's still the holiday season, so app sales all around! Maybe the reasons to put games on sale isn't as solid as it was back in the days before free-to-play conquered all, but who's going to complain about getting the most bang for your iTunes gift card? As such, all these games should be on sale for the next week or so at the minimum. There's some great 2015 releases on the list, some App Store classics, some cool underrated indie games, and Blood Bowl. There's over a hundred games in this list, sorted alphabetically, so keep looking, and I'm sorry about your wallet:

  • spsummer

    Long live BLOOD BOWL

    • gaymerX

      Don't Starve: Pocket Edition is also on sale!!

  • TDA

    Yes! Blood Bowl!

    • khann

      Too many one star reviews to even risk a dollar.

  • Playst Steve

    Great list, thanks! But c'mon. "Holiday 2015"? ..it's Christmas, say it

    • HarryWarden

      Damn right!

    • scottsoapbox

      Hanukkah is over at this point so any sales would be Christmas sales...

      • http://about.me/wondroushippo Carter Dotson

        I know someone's who not ready for the Festivus feats of strength.

      • Shaun Musgrave

        I figured these were all お正月 sales.

      • Tallgeese

        🎍 🎌 🌄 🌅 🍶 These are all the Happy New Year emoji my keyboard recommends... ^_^ None of them will probably show up... If you put "お正月" into Google-sama, Google-sama will offer you kawaii new year's animal cut-outs and the phrase "'Tis the season!"

      Seems weird to get worked up over us being intentionally inclusive of everyone regardless of what holiday you're celebrating this time of year.

      • HelperMonkey

        Are you guys sponsored by Starbucks and their HATEFUL blank cups now?! Boo! Hiss!

      • Andrew Fretz

        Amazingly enough, some people just like being tolerant /shrug

      • HarryWarden

        Being PC isn't a positive. That's what wrong with today's world.

      • TreeHouse

        Falling for the tripe about political correctness and inclusion being what's bad for the world is the bigger crime here.

      • HarryWarden

        It's not "falling for it" when one sees the negative effects of PC.

      • FrehleyzComet

        That's why I own a Mac. Crap on pc's!!

      • dancj

        Being PC is a positive. It's the reason the world is much less racist and homophobic than it was 10, 20, 30 years ago.

        That said, holidays are in the summer.

      • falco

        So you think PC users are not racist? but they hates Apple, just saying!

      • dancj


      • Pheebers

        Trying to decide if this is a sarcastic post or not...I honestly can't tell.

      • Pheebers

        Thank you, Eli, people getting worked up over other people being nice is strange to me too.

      • Arcite

        Not to be pedantic, but Christmas this year also falls on pretty much the same day as birth of the prophet Muhammed, a major Muslim holiday (also a full moon day). 😀

      • boydstr

        Yep totally agree,diversity is a good thing.

    • Shaun Musgrave

      We have, in other articles. Go look at Update Mondays this week - it literally opens and closes with Christmas greetings. There's no policy in place about this at TouchArcade. The writers are free to express themselves as they wish. Besides, since these sales are running before and after December 25th, I don't think it's that weird to use the more general term 'holiday sale' over the chronologically-specific term 'Christmas sale'.

    • mindmagicgames


    • LKR

      Christmas isn't a holiday?

      • Tallgeese

        Santa died for your presents, everyone! The least you can do is spread Christmas cheer by demanding everyone believe in your version of him! Also stabbings! Nothing makes the jolly man laugh like his favorite color! Eeeeeeheeheeheeeeee ho ho heeeeee hahaHaaa, Batman!

    • http://twitter.com/JaredTA Jared Nelson

      It sucks because I actually love the expression "Happy holidays!" and always have, but idiots that bring up THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS have basically taken away my right to use it without being shit on by people who think I'm "trying to be PC" or something.

      • Tallgeese

        Stop being such a SJW, Jared (Phraselolgy is real phuckery sometimes... Reducing soup to a sauce is good for covering something but it's not a whole meal! Sorry, my bravely default currently appears to be soup metaphors...)!

    • Pape Storms

      I think it's great that liberals have convinced white people to go against their own best interest by being so PC. At the current rate there will be more non-whites than whites in the USA & Europe within 150 years & we will effectively be able to take their own homelands away from them. Plus with mix breeding the entire white race will go the way of the dinosaur within the next couple thousand years 🙂

      That's progress.

      Thrilled to know that Eli & Jared are diehard liberals too.

      • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

        Normally I'd delete comments like this but this is so fucking crazy I want to print it and hang it on my wall.

      • boydstr

        There is no white race,on the other hand there are people.

      • slamraman

        What goes around comes around, kid.

      • Simone Housen

    • http://about.me/wondroushippo Carter Dotson

      Thank YOU!

  • skylined87

    To freeze or not to freeze, that is the question...

  • chkenwing

    Grim Fandango worth it?

    • http://about.me/wondroushippo Carter Dotson

      At that price, considering how well-regarded of a classic it is, why not? 🙂

    • jamesmcadams82

      Before it was confirmed that it would come to iOS, I bought a PS4 just so I could play this game. It's one of my favourites of all time.

  • Aragorn01

    And now I just got to get a truck-load of gift cards!

  • dancj

    Still no sign of the IGN free game of the month though. Have they stopped doing it?

    • speedyph


      • Tallgeese

        I've been wondering that too... Not sure how they pick 'em, or what the ROI was for those selected/volunteered?... Maybe they HAVE gone the way of the Starbucks cards...

  • Kal2411

    No Cubus Christmas no care. Where is this game?

  • DeNappa

    Secret of mana is also on sale, if you don't have that classic yet.

  • vicsark

    I sooooo need a 256 Gb iPad :/

    • Stormourner of the Nature

      we need 300 GB iOS devices

    • boydstr

      What ever the storage space you have available the more films,apps,games etc.I am storing on my device and it is a trend in gaming that the games becoming bigger in storage République is 3,31gb and that is not the full game I am curious how big the final game with all the chapters will be.

  • Thiago

    I received a notification thad Don't Starve is also on sale for 2.99

  • Alexythimia23

    Damn it a,lmi want is this war of mine... But still getting " this item is being modified" and apple said its down to the dev, so i guess i wont get it on sale 😔

    • Tallgeese

      If you have a Kumpewter... This War of Mine was on sale yesterday during the Humble Bundle Store sale... Maybe they'll encore it... It's probably part of Steam Store's enormous Vintür sale too... That's an awfully sad game to play on the holidays, unless you put it on a big screen and re-enact it with the family so as to include them (send the youngest out for food, choose which one you like the least and are willing to sacrifice, turn off the heat and cover the windows with sheets after you open them all, hunt them for sport, "there are no time-outs for the bathroom in war")... Maybe that'll bring you all closer... Or farther apart... Either way you should get Rocket League...

      • Alexythimia23

        Lol thanks for that, il have a look....but i just love gaming on my tablet, im ios through and through (for now) ✌🏼️

  • Tallgeese

    What's the game called?

    • http://www.fivefans.net JeffFromFFP

      Fliggles Rescue Adventure. We might should have changed the character and called it Marios Rescue Adventure or Luigis Rescue Adventure but we aren't fond of lawsuits. 🙂 We wanted to do a twist on being blown away. Thank you.

  • Alexythimia23

    Totally off topic to releases....but gawd damn, the game Reaper, Tale of a pale swordsman has got to be one of my all time ios games, just started playing again, so if anyone missed this game?! Check out app store reviews, you will not find a better game, which is initially free then you can buy the full game if you like....which you will! Thank me later ✌🏼️

  • boydstr

    I want to buy Grim Fandango now it's on sale the game got a lot of great reviews but never played it because I don't like the way how the character is moved (point and click),how do you move the character in the iPhone version with twin sticks or single stick?

    • Tallgeese

      I thought it was a point-and-click...

      • boydstr

        That's a shame the point and click genre is not my thing,thanks for the info.

      • Tallgeese

        No worries. Nowadays you can get even more info if you youtube, "Let's Play" and "[desired game]" and watch a bit, let's players are sometimes rather annoying and some tend to substitute expletives for actual insight but it's a great way to get a feel for gameplay at only a typically minor and blessedly temporal cost of some of your faith in humanity...

      • boydstr

        Lol,most of the time i do just that so I get a feel of the game,graphics and gameplay especially now with all the cheap games I get game hungry but hé what is €0,99 cents for a nice game experience,anyway have a good Christmas and a fabulous 2016

  • Psac42

    Implosion also on sale for half price, just picked that one up.

  • veryggyy

    King of dragon pass $5

  • Fabuloso Games

    Astrå is on sale now too. 33% off. Merry Christmas! Happy holidays! or whatever you prefer.

  • http://docpop.org/ DocPop

    All of Erik Svedang's games are on sale too (for iOS and Steam). You can see the full list here http://eriksvedang.com/2015/12/23/christmas-sale/ but I really enjoy Shot Shot Shoot for two players on iPad. There aren't many multiplayer games like it.
