If you still haven't checked out the Infinity Blade games, I'm not here to admonish you. There's a ton of games out there and it's hard to keep up with every single one. I miss out on games and mobile games is my life! But with the holiday season hopefully bringing some downtime to you, this means that if you've wanted to see what the fuss is all about with the Infinity Blade series, as all 3 games are on sale:..

There's been a bazillion dual stick shooters released on the App Store since the days of iDracula, but there's just something about the Geometry Wars games that always have me playing them more than everything else in that genre. I even fought through playing a ton of the (now super defunct) Geometry Wars: Touch without widescreen support. Well, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved [$9.99] is a worthy (or, arguably better) alternative...




With turkey, football, and awkward political conversations with your uncles set to happen on Thanksgiving this Thursday, that also means that it's time for some iOS game sales. While they're a bit slwo to start up this year, there's a couple pairs of titles worth checking out at discounts...

If you read yesterday's news about new Lumines Puzzle and Music [$2.99] DLC and were bummed that you didn't have Lumines yet, things just got a whole lot easier. The fantastic mobile iteration of this classic puzzle game is now its cheapest yet, and can be downloaded for a single dollar. And, hey, if you need an extra push over the edge, Shaun liked the game quite a bit...

Looking back at last year's Black Friday iOS game sale bonanza, there were tons of good price drops, but I'm not sure any were as significant as this one. As of this morning, Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions [$13.99] has hit its lowest historical price ever of $3.99. Sure, it's been on sale before, but the lowest it has ever gotten has been is $6.99. Hopefully this is a sign of the caliber of sales we can expect this week as anyone with a paid game slams the price down to near-$0...

If you're a fan of Deus Ex Go [$1.99], or have been curious to see more content for the game, then good news: the Puzzle Maker update that went into beta recently has a release date: November 24th on Thanksgiving. The free update will allow you to make and share your own levels for the third game in Square Enix Montreal's Go franchise. The game sems well-equipped for custom levels as compared to previous entries in the series, so thsi should be an interesting feature to see in action...

Eisenhorn: Xenos [$5.99], the latest release from developers Pixel Hero Games, proved to be highly divisive when it launched for various reasons. Some thought it was a rare glimpse of console-quality action brought to the smaller screen of the iPhone; others, including our own Carter Dotson in his review back in August, were not impressed by the clunky combat and confusing narrative that was hidden behind the veneer of graphical prowess. With such a contrasting array of opinions, it's understandable that many were somewhat skeptical of plunging into Eisenhorn: Xenos at its initial $9.99 price point. Today, the developers have put the game on sale for $5.99 for the first time, which is slightly more palatable for anyone on the fence, or anyone looking to truly flex the muscles of the new iPhone 7 with some stunningly gorgeous graphics that make the most out of the graphical capabilities of the most recent devices...

Perchang the developer, which was formed earlier this year by a former member of Rodeo Games during their hiatus, released Perchang [$1.99] the video game back in June to an incredibly positive reception. Perchang is a physics puzzler that sees you manipulating various objects in Rube Goldberg-like levels and using the force of gravity in order to corral enough tiny balls into a goal. It had very clever level designs and a clean aesthetic, and right now you can experience that for yourself as Perchang has just dropped to free for the first time since its release...

Even though there is some serious competition from the Battlefield and Titanfall series this year, November will always be the Call of Duty month, and the one-two punch of both Modern and Infinite Warfare (certainly a lot of conflict, by any means) has proved to be a commercial hit, even if critics haven't been as favourable to Activision's flagship first person shooter series this time around. Thankfully, November isn't solely an exciting time for console gamers - as well as the soft launch release of card game spin-off Call of Duty: Siege last month, the publishing behemoth has reduced every Call of Duty title to $1.99 in an App Store wide sale. The titles featured in this promotion are as follows:..

Rhythm games tend to have a way of reinvigorating even the most stale genres, as the music actually interacting with the gameplay rather than being passive in the background adds a whole new element of immersion - let alone when you're able to choose what tracks are played. Lost in Harmony [Free] was the iteration of this formula that took the runner mechanics that have been done to death on mobile devices, and turned the levels into dynamic and emotive experience that we loved in our review back in January. Today, Lost in Harmony has been put on sale for absolutely nothing, so any fans looking for something which isn't your typical runner game should definitely skate down to the App Store and try the unique amalgamation of ideas that developer Digixart Entertainment was so successful at combining for the price of absolutely nothing...

If you like board game ports, then you truly can't go wrong with Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy [$6.99 (HD)], especially if you enjoy playing a relatively-streamlined 4X game on your tablet. The game has been out since 2013, but it's now free for the first time ever, so this is a great time to grab it. Mind you, when I say the game is relatively-streamlined, I say that within the context of 4X games; Eclipse is still a pretty complex game, but it's made easier to play because of the limited options and a set game length. It takes a while to get the hang of it, but once you do, all the systems play together quite well and combine to make Eclipse a very entertaining 4X game...

It may be Halloween, but that doesn't mean it's not the time to start getting excited about the impending ski season. However, for anyone who doesn't fancy the idea of launching themselves down a hill at ridiculous speeds with only a mere helmet for protection, developers Sleepy Z Studios have a way of experiencing the same winter wackiness without the many risks associated with extreme sports, as they have made Ski Safari 2 [$0.99] free for today as part of a 'App of the Day' promotion...

Mos Speedrun 2 [$1.99] was the absolute best sort of sequel you can find, both on the App Store and in terms of gaming generally. While it wasn't as focused on the short and hyper-precise speed-running segments of the original - instead preferring longer and more adventurous levels - it kept the elements that made Physmo's first game so essential, while expanding the experience into an essential content-rich platformer. While our five star review and subsequent Game of the Week award speak for themselves, personally I don't think I played an iOS game more than Mos Speedrun 2 in 2015, so if the initial price of $1.99 was an absolute bargain, the fact it has today gone on sale for free is an Ocean's Eleven-level heist, and I'd implore anyone who hasn't already downloaded Mos Speedrun 2 to run and jump to the App Store and try it out while this spontaneous reduction lasts...

Make no bones about it - Michael Brough's latest game Imbroglio [$3.99] is an essential dungeon-crawling experience that, in our review, we stated stands firm with his previous classic iOS releases such as 868-HACK [$4.99]. However, on the topic of bones, an incoming update to Imbroglio is as suitably obsessed with skeletons as the imminent Halloween celebrations would suggest. This expansion, which is titled Imbroglio: Ossuary (in other words, a container where bones of deceased are placed), sends your heroes into perilous bone-pits, to undoubtedly uncover a whole host of freaky items, enemies and gems to collect throughout the game. Brough has stated in a recent blog post that the expansion will be released tomorrow, so will launch with plenty of time before the spooky spectacle of October 31st. For anyone who hasn't tried Imbroglio yet, the game is also on sale for the first time ever, so this is a great time to pick it up if you have a lot of free time you don't mind being stolen by the undead...

This Halloween, instead of dressing up in ridiculous costumes, or harassing people in your local area for a borderline life-threatening amount of sugar, why don't you stay inside and play iOS games all day! Apple certainly have the same idea, as fitting with the season of spookiness and scares, they have coordinated a mass Halloween sale on the App Store, with some games that have rarely, if ever, seen a price drop in their history. In particular, Severed [$6.99] has had its first major sale, and after receiving extremely positive reviews from the unflappable Carter Dotson back in July, as well as on every other platform the game has released on, a reduced price of $2.99 is basically getting away with murder. Continuing with the trend of releasing scary, horror-infused games in the terrifying month of July, Crypt of the Necromancer [$4.99] also released around the same time with equally glowing critical acclaim, and I cannot recommend it enough for only $1.99. Here is the full list - to the best of my knowledge - of the games on sale in Apple's new 'Spooky Games' promotion:..

Despite my lack of knowledge and interest in the card game that it takes its name from, Solitairica [$3.99] managed to take over my life for a few weeks in August, mainly thanks to its smooth difficulty curve, abundance of charm, and the ever-enticing goal of trying to get to the end of the road and defeat the omnipotent Emperor Stuck. With an extremely positive review last month, Solitairica was a bargain as its initial $3.99 price point - however, for anyone on the fence, developers Righteous Hammer Games have today put the game on sale for $1.99, which is an absolute bargain for the amount of hours you are likely to lose to the game...

However you rank Final Fantasy 4 [$14.99] among the many installments of the popular RPG series, it's clear that it's special to many people. Not the least of them being the people at Square Enix, who have seen fit to remake and re-release the game more than any other installment in the series. It's the only Super NES Final Fantasy to get a direct sequel game, which itself has been remade a few times in spite of being a pretty weak effort. Just as last weekend got underway, Final Fantasy 4 got another feather in its cap, as it's the subject of the latest event in the well-received Final Fantasy Brave Exvius [Free]. To celebrate that, Square Enix has temporarily reduced the price of the iOS version of Final Fantasy 4 to less than half of its usual cost...

If you haven't played Tennis Champs Returns [Free], I have to say: what is wrong with you?! This is the best tennis game since Mario Tennis for Game Boy Color, and Jared has fanboyed out for this game like no other. It's free to download, but it comes with some in-app purchases (the most expensive one is $1.99), including one that's perfect for our audience. The VIP will remove ads, double your career XP, eliminates the coin costs for entry into career events, and makes scouting half price. That normally runs you $1.99, but now will only cost you $0.99 today, Friday, October 14th. It's an instabuy, especially at that cost...

If you want three very good digital board games, especially if you like 2-player ones, you should pounce on the Digidiced sale. The games on sale are Agricola All Creatures Big and Small [$4.99], Patchwork: The Game [$2.99], and Le Havre: The Inland Port [$4.99]. All three games are focused on one versus one and are very well made. Agricola All Creatures Big and Small is a 2-player adaptation of the famous Agricola board game and is a much more focused experience than the complex Agricola. Patchwork is an award-winning game where you try and combine various fabric pieces into a patchwork, and it's a great combination of theme and gameplay...

In the time after Sentinels of the Multiverse [$6.99] launched all the way back in October 2014, the game has grown and developed far beyond the entertaining but flawed card game which warranted a relatively average three star review at release. Since this initial launch, we've seen a universal update, multiplayer implementation, numerous expansions, and most recently a whole new season that released last month, which has seen the game create a significant community amongst like-minded mobile gaming enthusiasts. However, the pre-eminent complaint in our review was that, for its original $9.99 price tag, Sentinels of the Multiverse was a bit expensive whilst it still had a few major issues. Having gone some way to fixing the latter issue, developers Handelabra Studio have gone one step further and reduced the base game to a record low price of $0.99, which is certainly a lot more palatable for anyone looking to try out this character-packed card game...
