It’s almost turkey time! Which means lots and lots of food but also lots and lots of sales. Some sales have even started a few days early, which is why we’ve put together a list of iOS games that are currently discounted (sometimes by a lot).

Chances are this list is only going to get bigger as we approach the weekend, so check back in with us from time to time to see what else you can nab for a reduced price.

[Updated 11/26]: Even more games have been discounted and it’s still not even Thursday yet! A lot of fairly well known titles have joined the list this time, including games like Surgeon Simulator, Republique, and Thomas Was Alone.

[Updated 11/27]: Goodness but there are a lot more sales happening right now! Just under 40 games have been added to the list this time, with big names like Banner Saga, Table Tennis Touch, King Oddball, a whole bunch of Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks, and a whole lot more.

angrybirdsthanksgiving_01The very first Angry Birds debuted on iOS back in 2009. When you sit back and tally up the number of Angry Birds games out there and the impact they’ve had on pop culture as a whole, you just need to ask yourself: “How would the birds taste following a three-hour engagement with a broiler?”

No, seriously. The anniversary of the Angry Birds and American Thanksgiving are in the same neighborhood, date-wise. And while not everyone eats fowl for Thanksgiving (or meat in general, for that matter), Thanksgiving is still synonymous with roasted bird-meat. So let’s sit back, loosen our belts, and have a solemn conversation about how the Angry Birds would fare as a main course this holiday season.

Come on, it’s worth considering. There are no wings to contend with, no drumsticks – not even any bones if the way they fling themselves around is any indication. The Angry Birds are just big buttery balls of white meat. That said, some probably make for better eating than others. Let’s get on with this vital holiday breakdown.

Telltale Games has announced the season premiere episode of Tales from the Borderlands, ‘Zer0 Sum,’ will be coming to iOS before the end of this year.

Revisit Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2 with this five-part episodic adventure game series. You’ll get to play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest swindle ever.

3D ARPG Dynasty of Dungeons is soon to be released in Europe, North America, and Australasia – and will be free to download.

The game allows you to take on the role of the ‘Overlord’, an anti-hero who lives in a destroyed world. You are then tasked with fighting your way through regions of the game world to claim each region for your own – and ultimately follow the storyline to its natural conclusion, conquering the world.

You fight battles in Dynasty of Dungeons by having two distinct ways to control the outcome. Firstly, you choose the positions of their heroes, with some – as you’d expect – having advantages over the other characters in the form of their attack range or defensive capabilities.

Second is how you can build up ‘mana’ to unleash a more powerful attack on your enemy, where an attack may deal more damage, damage all opponents, or heal one of your allies.

Dynasty 2
The gameplay has a significant amount of depth then, but developer Playcrab is also keen to highlight how the universe and story of Dynasty of Dungeons is bought to life through the 3D visuals. There’s a huge range unique animations for each heroes’ actions.

You can see it all for yourself very soon though, with the game arriving on the App Store on November the 27 – with many exciting updates containing further story arcs, maps, functions, events, heroes, weapons to come.

Hello Heroes:
What’d we think of Call of Duty‘s take on Clash of Clans? Check out our Call of Duty: Heroes review to find out!

Just downloaded Call of Duty: Heroes and need some handy tips and tricks on how to get ahead of the rest? As we often do, we’re here to help you out with getting started.

  • Straight away, Oil should be your focus as it all goes towards building new structures.
  • Build mines and oil pumps as much as you’re allowed to, but don’t forget you can gain such resources by taking out enemies.
  • You’re given a protective shield at first, so use that safe time to upgrade and build turrets so you can withstand invasions later on.
  • Buy a second builder as soon as possible so that you can construct two things at once. A third would be handy but will take some focused mission-chasing to achieve for free.
  • Join an alliance as soon as possible. Safety in numbers works here and it’s good to have backup and assistance.
  • Upgrading your Command Center is a wise move. It’ll unlock new structures and units, as well as boost your resource limits.
  • You also unlock new heroes as you increase the Command Center’s level, and they’re the only troops you can directly control.
