The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – June 21st

Well Wednesday has really snuck up on us this week hasn’t it? Before you know it it’ll be Thursday. Then shortly after that it’ll be Friday. Then we get two days of laying down before the whole awful carousel of life starts again. Yay.

Anyway, on Wednesday here at AppSpy we like to round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store this week. And I’ll have you know that there are some proper gems in the offing this time round. Not like last week. Everyone glower at last week.

As per ever you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download them. And if you spot anything on sale that you think our lovely readers deserve to hear more about, you can do so in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Kingdom: New Lands – £2.99 / $ 2.99


A weird and wonderful semi-idler that sees you riding a horse around your kingdom to distribute coins to your subjects. It sounds horribly simple, but in practice there’s an incredible amount of depth here. Oh, and it looks absolutely stunning. Definitely worth picking up if you haven’t experienced it already.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – June 14th

Oh look it’s Wednesday again. That means it’s time to have a look at the best games that are for sale on the App Store right now. To be honest it’s a bit of a rubbish week for sales, but I’ve picked five games that are worth a look.

It might make more sense to save your money for something else, unless you’re really desperate to try out one of the games on offer here.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names to download the various interactive entertainment experiences. And if you’ve spotted something you think we should have included feel free to let people know in the comments below.

Framed – Free

Definitely the diamond in the rough this week. If you’ve not played this one before, it’s all about shuffling comic panels to move a story forwards. It’s a clever mix of an adventure and a puzzler and it’s an absolute steal for free.

Circa Infinity – 99p / 99c

A challenging platformer with a pretty special twist. That twist is its circular. You’re bouncing around the edges of circles, dodging enemies and trying to stay alive. It’s twitchy, it has a look all of its own, and you should definitely play it.

Kahuna – £1.99 / $ 1.99

A strategy game that’s all about old Polynesian gods. Use cards to build bridges, capture islands, and try and take control of the majority of the map. It’s tense, it’s slightly bonkers, and it’s more exciting than a lot of action games out there.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – May 3rd

It’s Wednesday. It’s come around quicker than usual because Monday was a bank holiday. At least it was in the UK. I don’t know where you’re from, so I’d feel bad if I said it was a bank holiday where you’re from and it wasn’t.

Anyway, on Wednesday here at AppSpy we like to round up the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. So that’s what I’m going to do. Even though it feels much more like a Tuesday and so I’m very confused.

As ever, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to go and download them. And there you have it, an excellent preamble to an excellent piece of content. We’re all doing brilliant work,

Gamebook Adventures 9 – 99p / 99c

So right now all of the Gamebook Adventures games are on sale for 99p. If you’ve not heard of them, they’re a series of choose your own adventure games built by Tin Man Games. And they’re definitely worth playing. There’s a lot of them, but for 99p a pop you’re getting an awful lot of fun for almost nothing.

Tsuro – £2.99 / $ 2.99

A digital version of an intriguing boardgame. It’s all about dragons. But there isn’t any gold hoarding here. Instead you’re just trying not to fly off the board. You build your dragon’s path as you play, and whoever has the last dragon standing wins.

Out There – 99p / 99c

A big and wonderful space exploration game. Part gamebook, part roguelike, all loneliness and death. This is the Omega edition of the game as well, so it’s chock full of interesting new content. And for less than the price of a thing that costs a pound you can’t really go wrong.

The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now – April 12th

Hyperburner – Free


Hyperburner is free!?! Oh cool. But what is it? Well it’s a super fast sci-fi racer that looks absolutely gorgeous. Perhaps more importantly it also controls fantastically. And let’s be honest, the controls are the most important things in a game. No, really, they are. Thinking an auto-running Wipeout and you’re getting there.

Her Story – £2.99 / $ 2.99

A brilliant and entrancing story about a murder. But it’s much more than that. Told through video clips that you watch in a disjointed order, this is a tale that twists and turns as you delve deeper into it. It’s a game that’s tough to explain – you really need to play it though, that much I know for sure.

Mayhem – 99p / 99c


A super-quick, super-hard retro blaster that offers a massive challenge to anyone who dares jump into it. It’s not the deepest game out there, but it’s the sort of experience that, for just 99p, is almost impossible to turn down.
