If you've been keeping tabs on the iOS 7 controller scene since they started appearing last November, you'll remember that the Logitech Powershell dropped its price down to $69.99 and the SteelSeries Stratus lowered its price down to $79.99, both from their original MSRP of $99.99. Well, Moga is getting in on the controller price-dropping bandwagon too, as their Ace Power MFi controller is currently on sale for $79.99...

In May of last year, Rodeo Games released Warhammer Quest [$4.99], a turn-based dungeon crawler set in the Warhammer universe. And, they totally nailed it–we loved Warhammer Quest in our review. The game launched at a price of $4.99, and as is almost unheard of in the world of the App Store, it has remained at that price ever since. Most everyone playing Warhammer Quest agreed it was worth the asking price and then some, but it's never fun to buy something full price and then have it immediately go on sale, so it was nice to see Rodeo stick to their pricing scheme. However, that was nearly nine months ago, and so for the first time ever Rodeo Games have decided to put Warhammer Quest on sale for just a buck through the weekend...

One of 2012's absolute best iOS releases, Luca Redwood's 10000000 [$2.99] has just been given a much needed update adding widescreen support (yay!), Game Center achievements and new Ace Levels. If you missed it previously, 10000000 is a matching game with built-in combat and RPG mechanics, not totally unlike Puzzle Quest or Dungeon Raid. The hook here is that you're constantly under a time constraint, so you need to be making the right kind of matches for whatever your current obstacle is (fighting an enemy, unlocking a door, etc.) with the clock ticking down in your face. It puts a certain sense of panic into the gameplay, but not in a bad way. In fact, it's exhilarating when you know time is just about to run out and you happen to make the most perfect match ever, propelling you forward and continuing your run when you were sure you were toast...

This past November, Liv Games debuted the latest entry in their "Wars" series with the sci-fi strategy title Stellar Wars [$0.99]. Today the game has received a massive new update, and to celebrate the game is now temporarily free for the first time ever. This trilogy of games began with Legendary Wars [$0.99] back in early 2011. While predominantly a castle defense game, Legendary Wars actually stuffed a bunch of different kinds of genres into its lengthy campaign, along with a humorous story and killer visuals. It all blended together incredibly well, and was so full of content it easily kept us busy until the next game in the series, Monster Wars [$0.99], launched in early 2012, almost exactly a year later...

Even though we weren't totally in love with the game in our review, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years [$15.99] is important today for one reason: It's apparently the harbinger of Final Fantasy VI. Per the iTunes text of After years, "Final Fantasy VI coming soon to the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad!" Of course, Squeenix has been teasing iOS gamers with Final Fantasy VI for quite some time now, so who knows if this is any kind of definitive proof that it's coming any sooner than it was going to come anyway... But, at least it's a sign that they're doing something inside of iTunes Connect...

We knew that The Room Two [$2.99] would be heading to iPhone and iPod touch devices at some point early this year, but when we reported on Monday that it would be coming this week, we erroneously assumed it would be in a similar fashion to the first game with a new separate version for iPhone. Well, in this particular case I'm very happy to be wrong as Fireproof Games has opted to not go that route this time and instead has updated the iPad version of The Room Two to be Universal with support for iPhone 4S and above devices. That update is out now and to celebrate they've knocked a couple of bucks off the price of The Room Two, down to $2.99 from $4.99...

Logitech's entry into the iOS 7 controller market, the wider-than-my-Jnco-jeans PowerShell is seeing its first price drop since the original $99.99 price point leaked in late October. The $69.99 price point is currently live both ordering direct from Logitech as well as at the Apple Store. Amazon isn't reflecting the price change as of this writing, but a quick chat with a customer service agent might result in a price match if you prefer to order from Amazon...

Just a quick heads up that one of my current obsessions, Curve Digital's Stealth Inc. [$4.99], has dropped its price for the first time and can be yours for just $1.99, down from its usual cost of $4.99. You may know Stealth Inc. by the name it originally released under on PC back in 2011, Stealth Bastard. At its core, Stealth Inc. is a punishing puzzle-platformer that's built around stealth mechanics. You'll need to utilize hiding in shadows to reach the end of each level, as well as figuring out whatever blocks need to be pushed or switches need to be flipped to even reveal where the exit is...

Freebie Alert: Cult Hit 'Carmageddon' Free for a Limited Time

In October of 2012, Stainless Games released an iOS port of their 1997 cult-classic vehicular manslaughter game Carmageddon [$0.99] as part of their revival of the series with a planned reboot for consoles and PC called Carmageddon: Reincarnation...

Freebie Alert: 'Super Stickman Golf 2' Goes Free for a Limited Time

A couple of days ago, we detailed the brand new update for Noodlecake's Super Stickman Golf 2 [Free], and also mentioned that along with the new update the game would be dropping to free for a limited time. Well, consider this your official notice: as of right now, Super Stickman Golf 2 is available for free in the App Store. This is the first time the game has been free since launching in March of last year, and the latest update includes all sorts of cool stuff like new courses, new multiplayer options and more. Here's a glimpse at one of the new courses which is based on Team Meat's popular platformer Super Meat Boy...

Here's one for the ages. Right now, Ubisoft's masterful mobile Rayman game Rayman Jungle Run [$2.99] is free for the first time ever. I mean, it's been 99¢ plenty of times before, which for the quality of the game might as well be free, but this is as free as it'll ever get. Rayman Jungle Run launched last year and took all the impressive visuals and whimsy of its console big brother and packed it into a mobile auto-runner. This wasn't just "another endless runner" though, as the level design is outstanding in Jungle Run, and it's simply a joy to play while still being incredibly challenging. The sky high production values are just the icing on the cake...

The holidays are a wonderful time of the year for iOS gamers looking to score a ton of great games on the cheap. Due to most games these days being either free or a buck anyway, this year's sales weren't quite as impressive as previous years, but there's still some pretty great deals to be had...

We've been so busy doing our end-of-year and best of 2013 stuff, as well as taking some much-needed time off to hang with the family over the holidays, that a very noteworthy Freebie Alert nearly slipped right by us. Nearly. Currently, 17-Bit Studio's Skulls of the Shogun [$2.99] is free. Why is it free? Christmas? New Year? Just because 17-Bit are nice people? Who cares why, you need to download this bad boy right now. We awarded Skulls of the Shogun five stars in our review, and it was our pick as Game of the Week when it released. It's a fantastic strategy game with the approachable-yet-super-deep flavor of a game like Advance Wars, and the production values are just through the roof...

If you even vaguely liken yourself as a Sonic fan, now is the time to open up your virtual wallet and spray some dollars Sega's way. Sonic [$2.99], Sonic 2 [$2.99], and Sonic CD [$2.99] all not only have received Christian Whitehead's amazing remastering treatment… But they're also on sale for a buck. If you're not familiar with what I'm talking about with the whole "remastering" thing, here's the highly abridged version of the tale:..
