A Collection of Classic Indie Titles Are on Sale for $0.99 on the App Store This Week

TouchArcade Rating:

This week, the App Store is celebrating all things indie gaming. While this means that a lot of landmark releases are slowly filtering out, including today’s much anticipated Nimblebit simulator Bit City, it also signals the start of a tsunami of sales that are set to push your willpower and wallet to the limit. With some big, critically acclaimed names now only $0.99, as well as some more obscure titles receiving rare price deductions for the first time in years, there’s almost certainly something for everyone in this awesome new Apple-led promotion. Here’s a full list of the games on sale for this week in alphabetical order:

While there are a lot of neat indie titles on sale, a few stand out in terms of the timing and extent of their price reductions. In particular, Apple Design Award winner 2014 Leo’s Fortune ($4.99), atmospheric puzzle title Road Not Taken ($4.99), and Amanita Design’s adventure epic Botanicula ($4.99) are all at their lowest prices ever at only $0.99 – if any of those three games take your fancy, now is unequivocally the best time to add them to your collection. A particular favorite of mine in the form of gravity-flipping platformer VVVVVV ($2.99) by Terry Cavanagh is on sale for the first time since August 2014, and I cannot recommend the title enough for anyone looking for some rewarding retro action. If I’ve missed out any games that are on sale please leave a comment to let our awesome community take advantage of such discounts, and be sure to head to our Price Drops forum for further reductions over the coming days.
