First of all, Warhammer Quest is a great game. You should go get it if you haven’t already, even if you missed out on it when it was free last week. But regardless of whether or not you were able to take advantage of the sale, there’s a totally new sale you can take advantage of this weekend.
From now through Sunday, pretty much all of the game’s in-app purchases are on sale for $0.99 each. That means new regions, enemies, heroes, etc. You can grab them all for a very reasonable price.
Warhammer Quest is available on the App Store for its more typical (and still quite worthwhile) price of $4.99.

Outread, an app from developer Arkadiusz Holko that claims to improve your reading effectiveness through various training methods, has received a huge update that includes a wide variety of new features.
The latest update features eBook support, a built-in directory of classic public domain books, built-in statistics (to see overall and daily reading stats), a new reading mode that aligns the app’s word highlighter to the center, audio cues, and more. Also in version 1.2 of Outread are countless improvements to already existing app features, including a better “chunking algorithm,” a refreshed app icon, and more.
I’m sure plenty of people were a bit dubious when Hitman GO was announced for iOS. I’ll even admit that I had my doubts. However, I was quite pleasantly surprised when I managed to see it in action.
Hitman GO is certainly not your typical Hitman game. It’s also not the kind of Hitman game I think most of us were expecting. It’s actually a puzzle game in which players must figure out how to move Agent 47 so that he can avoid guards and either exit the level or take out his targets. The entire game has this spectacular diorama/board game aesthetic, too.
The really interesting thing is how Square Enix Montréal has managed to incorporate so many of the series’ most notable mechanics (stealth, disguises, dual pistols, etc) into such a drastically different setting. And it all looks like it works surprisingly well. If that weren’t enough, there’s also going to be a special unlockable level designed around one of Bloody Money’s most memorable missions: Curtains Down.
Hitman GO will be releasing on the App Store this Thursday, April 17, for $4.99.

R.B.I. Baseball, known as the most popular Baseball game to ever be released for the Nintendo Entertainment System, has received a reboot via the modern smartphone. The original game licensed players from the MLB, and the same is true for R.B.I. Baseball 14, which features 480 of the current lineup of players. You can play the game, with visuals just slightly better than its predecessor, in a variety of modes including season, postseason, and exhibition.
The game features all 30 MLB teams, and you can play an entire 9-inning game in just 20 minutes. It also features easy-to-use “classic” controls, allowing you to control the game with what is basically just two buttons. The game is also very realistic, featuring players whose appearance and abilities are based on real stats. Finally, there is unlockable in-game content such as legacy jerseys that you can unlock by playing season mode.
You can get R.B.I. Baseball 14 on the App Store for $4.99.
