The Iranian Revolution isn't exactly an era gamers get to visit often, so when 1979 Revolution: A Cinematic Adventure Game [$4.99] released, it caught the eye of all those who enjoy historical fiction. Now that the game has gone free for the first time, you have no reason not to put yourself in the shoes of Reza Shirazi, a photojournalist caught in the flames of the Iranian Revolution. The game is narrative-heavy in the style of Telltale games and will have you making critical choices that alter the narrative's course. I haven't played the game yet to know how much your choices affect the narrative, but I don't think that will matter too much in this case because most players will play 1979 Revolution mostly to experience those momentous events...

This War of Mine [$14.99] is a bleak game that offers players an unflinching simulation of war's effect on civilian populations, and its DLC The Little Ones - which lets you experience war through the eyes of a child - definitely didn't make the game any lighter. The DLC is now 30% off, so here's your chance to experience a very different aspect of war for cheap. The Little Ones is more than just different characters for you to play as; it's also all about how children in war-torn cities are still children, and children still want to play with toys, make friends, and enjoy life despite the troubles around them...




Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier [$4.99] now has the first episode for free on iOS. This is a bit early for a Telltale game to go with the first episode free model like this, but Telltale's kind of pulled a switcheroo. For a limited time, episode 2 was available for free in the app. It still went through Apple's in-app purchase system, but the price was set to free:..

Okay, look, I think our wallets are almost in the clear. But we're not quite out of the woods yet. While many publishers like to do their big sales during the Christmas week, others are more of the New Year's type, and that means we've got some deals for you to take a look at today. Since there are a lot, I'm just going to list them out without the fancy details. I leave it up to you, dear reader, to investigate further. Without further ado, here are today's sales...

Return of the Zombie King [$2.99] is a clever little platformer, and it even managed to make its way into Eli's Top 10 of 2016. Now it's on sale for the first time ever, and you should pick it up if you've been looking for a fun platformer to play. The conceit behind Return of the Zombie King is that you start the game as the recently-deceased King, and throughout your runs you try to get back to your old virility and humanity by upgrading yourself with legs, eyes, ears, and so on. There are also additional upgrades to unlock as you go along until you once again become the once and future King...

It's that extremely awkward period between Christmas and New Year where no-one really knows what to do with themselves, and so unfortunately the usual tsunami of iOS game news has slowed down to the size of a more modest ripple in the vast ocean that is the App Store. On the positive side of things, this gives everyone a chance to catch up on their sprawling iPhone backlog, and even try out some of the titles that went on sale over the holiday season, which we extensively listed in our big Christmas discount round-up. However, one particular 2016 gem slipped through the cracks - Rush Rally 2 [$1.99] has today gone on sale for the first time ever, and is now available for the ridiculous price of 2016. Yes, despite only being a 50% reduction, ridiculous is apt in this case - Rush Rally 2 offers such meticulously designed racing action that continues to get better with successive updates that $1.99 is a bargain for anyone looking to get behind the virtual wheel on their iPhone...

Our 2016 Game of the Year 'Crashlands' is on Sale for the First Time Ever

When we posted Crashlands [$4.99] as our Game of the Year pick for 2016 this past Friday, I was really blown away by just how many people seemed to agree. We're sort of used to having dissenting opinions against the games we pick for features like that, which isn't surprising as "favorite" or "best" game picks are such a subjective thing. But it seems like just about everyone loves Crashlands! Well, if you're one of the people who didn't hop on the Crashlands bandwagon in 2016 but all the Game of the Year buzz has you curious to check it out, now is a pretty great time to do so as the game is on sale for the first time ever, down to just $1.99 from its already pretty darn reasonable regular price of $4.99...

There was a time in the long ago when I wasn't churning out daily sales posts. It's hard to believe, but it's true. While we're certainly living in a post-2016 Christmas sale world, it's important that for some countries, New Year's is an even bigger event than Christmas. Japan happens to be one of those countries, so I suppose it's quite appropriate that one of the country's most beloved series is having a big sale before everyone settles in for an evening of watching the same old singers singing the same old tunes. Every last Dragon Quest game released on iOS is on sale. I'm not going to say you must buy all of them, but you ought to buy all of them...

'Tis the season for sa- hey, wait a minute! That was yesterday! Well, as we saw last year, publishers can now set their sales to go live automagically, even while the App Store is frozen. A bunch of cool games have gone on sale since I did my last round-up, I figured we really ought to do one more. There's a fair few here, so you'll have to forgive me if this lacks the detail of my usual posts or recycles parts of a previous introduction, but one can only do so much at a time. Anyway, enough about that. On to today's sales highlights!..

'Tis the season for savings, especially for mobile gamers. As it goes every year, there are tons of sales happening right now in the App Store. So many, in fact, that it's getting to be impractical to do individual posts for games or even entire publishers. Therefore, until the tide subsides somewhat, I'm just going to do round-up posts that collect a bunch of new sales on games for each day. You'll have to forgive me if they lack the detail of my usual posts or completely recycle the introduction, but one can only do so much at a time. Anyway, enough about that. On to today's sales highlights!..

As a long time admirer of games that aren't afraid to be weird, I certainly appreciate and respect what Goat Simulator [$4.99] has done. I mean, you wouldn't think a buggy, janky game where you play a total jerk of a goat would strike it big, but it did. Gosh, did it ever. There are now tons of Goat Simulator games across multiple platforms, each offering their own variety of madcap entertainment. If you've been wondering what the deal is with this series but were too afraid to plunk down the money to see what it's all about, I've got some good news for you today. The original Goat Simulator is now available for free, for the first time ever...

Can you hear that, friends? That faint rumbling that sounds like it's coming from just over the horizon?

Whether you like your battles on land, air, or sea, Atypical's probably got something to your tastes. If nothing else, Radiation Island is certainly a must-have at the price it's going for. Provided you don't already have it, anyway...
