Memorial Day brings lots of great sales on iOS games
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Here in the US, most of us are celebrating a three-day weekend that also serves as the start of summer, which means BBQs, poolside hangouts and lots and lots of time in the sun. Oh, and it means one more thing these days: iOS game sales (all prices USD)!
- Card game maker Playdek has an awesome sale on, including Ascension (and its IAP), Nightfall (and its IAP), Penny Arcade: The Card Game and Fluxx all for just 99 cents each. You should definitely pick up one or all of those -- Nightfall is complicated, but it's probably my favorite.
- Puzzlejuice is on sale for 99 cents; it's a really brilliantly designed word puzzle game.
- EA Mobile has a huge sale on, featuring more than 55 games either 99 cents or free. Some choice picks: Tetris Blitz, The Sims 3 for 99 cents, Need for Speed: Most Wanted for 99 cents, and NBA Jam also for just under a buck.
- Plague Inc is down to just 99 cents.
- High Voltage's great Zoombies: Animales de la Muerte just recently appeared on the App Store, but it's already on sale for 99 cents.
- The great board game adaptation Small World for iPad is down to just $2.99. This is an especially good deal, because the game's about to get a big update for free.
- WELDER is on sale for free. So is Pocket Heroes and Angry Birds Space.
- I didn't think AVP Evolution was that great a game, but it's only 99 cents right now.
- Penumbear is an excellent and beautiful platformer that's only 99 cents as well.
- Adventure Bar Story, which is a bar simulator set in a fantasy RPG world, is on sale for free.
- The excellent puzzle game Sporos is free.
There's plenty of games for you to play, and we'll probably see even more sales go on over the rest of this weekend. Stay tuned for more updates on app and game sales, and you can always follow us on Twitter at @TUAW for up-to-the-minute sale tips!
