The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – November 15th

Wednesday has snuck up on us like some sort of big sneaky day. I don’t know, I’ve only had one coffee so far today and quite frankly that is far from enough. I’m still bashing out content for you though, so don’t complain too much.

With it being Wednesday, it’s time to round up the very best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. And I’ll tell you what, there are some real doozies going cheap this week. In fact, I’m pretty sure there’s something for everyone. Sort of.

As usual you can smash a click on the names of the games below if you want to be taken away to the App Store. And if you think there’s a game we should have included, but for some reason haven’t, feel free to correct our mistake in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

Dreii – £2.99 / $ 2.99

A clever physics puzzler that’s all about working together. You’ll be connected with other players around the world, and need to use their skills to solve some tricky challenges. It’s unique, it looks gorgeous, and if you haven’t given it a go yet it’s well worth picking up.

The best hints, tip, and tricks for Sonic Forces: Speed Battle

Well, a new Sonic game has come out on the App Store, and it’s not a total heap of garbage. In fact, it’s actually a really interesting take on the auto-runner. There’s a big multiplayer twist here, and it makes for some pretty darn thrilling races.

But there are some hints and tricks that are going to make sure you’re always coming out top of the leaderboard. And because we like you here at AppSpy, we thought we’d round them up in one handy guide.

And if you’ve got your own tips to throw into the mix, feel free to do it in the comments section down at the bottom of the article. Go on, you know you want to.

The basics

In simple terms, Sonic Forces is all about getting across the finish line first. The game controls your forward momentum, and you need to swipe to move across the four different lanes, leap over things, and slide out of harm’s way.

Rings are the key to success. The more rings you have, the faster you go. That’s why it’s important to avoid as much as possible, and grab the shiny gold things whenever you get the chance. Collect 100 of them and you’ll reach top speed.

Power-ups

All the characters have different versions of the same power-ups. One that shoots forwards, one that speeds you up, one that gives you a shield, and one that creates a barrier across the three lanes that you’re not in.

Knowing when to use these is super important. Don’t waste a rocket when th…

Starman

A wonderfully evocative adventure. It looks gorgeous, presented in slick black and white, and it plays brilliantly. Each level is essentially a puzzle to figure out. There’s an intriguing story here as well, and it’s well worth sticking with the game all the way to the end.

There’s a lot of fun to be sucked out of this one, especially if you’re a fan of the genre. If you’re not, well, maybe leave it be.

Highwind

A shooter that takes the shooter apart, then lets you play around with the different parts. It’s pretty smart, it’s pretty slick, and it’s got a load of decent ideas floating around within its little blasts of blasting. It’s not perfect, but it’s definitely worth checking out.

Final Fantasy Dimensions 2

A neat FF game that sits somewhere between Squeenix’s mobile output and a fully fledged title. It’s a lot of fun, and it cuts back on a lot of the wandering around that some people find off putting about the series. It’s full of retro charm, interesting characters, and plenty of scraps to sink your teeth into.

Runic Rampage

You’re a dwarf. A very angry dwarf. And you’ve got a big hammer. Your job is to stomp around tight levels, mashing bad monsters to bits. It’s a simple set up, but the crunching combat and giant splurges of gore are pretty special to behold. An RPG levelling system lets you tailor your character to how you play as well.

The best hints, tips, and tricks for Squashy Bug for iPhone and iPad

Squashy Bug, as you might be able to tell from the title, is a game about a Squashy Bug. You’re not trying to squash the squashy bug though, you’re trying to stop it from getting squashed. All the while attempting to increase your high score.

It’s a pretty simple thing, but there are a few tips and tricks that we’ve collated during our time with the game that are sure to push you even higher up the leaderboards. And since we’re all good eggs here at AppSpy, we figured it’d be a very good idea to share them with you.

If you’ve got your own hints that you’d like to share then feel free to hurl them into the comments section at the end of the article. And if you don’t, well that’s fine too. You’re still welcome to come and hang out here whenever you’d like.

The basics

There are two parts to the game. First you’re trying to avoid the feet that are crashing down all around you. Second you’re trying to collect the coins that pop up and drop them into the slot at the centre of the screen.

The controls are pretty easy. You press the left of the screen to move left and the right of the screen to move right. You’ll pick up coins automatically, and deposit them in the slot just by walking over it. Your main concentration should be on staying alive though.

Keep ahead of the feet

The best way to avoid the feet that are stomping onto the floor is to time your movements. When one f…
