Want a couple of minimalist, artsy, and enjoyable games on the cheap? Well, here’s a couple to check out: Blek ($2.99) and Duet ($4.99) are both on sale for $0.99 right now. Both are great games well worth playing. Duet is a challenging survival game from Kumobius that Pivvot ($2.99) fans might enjoy, as both are about spinning around a fixed point, but both games go in different directions from there. Duet has been frequently updated since release, adding in narration, and new level packs including the most recent “Epilogue" level pack.
Blek, meanwhile, is a bit more of a cerebral game. It’s got minimalist art as well, but is a puzzle game where the goal is to collect dots by drawing lines that travel along a path to collect them. However, the lines can only go so far, so it becomes about drawing the right path as it goes around the level in order to avoid obstacles and get those dots. The game is inordinately clever and has a gorgeous calligraphy-inspired visual style. It, like Duet, is temporarily $0.99, down from a $2.99 regular price, and both games are solid pickups.
