Celebrate Your Independence - From High Priced Apps

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on July 3rd, 2012

It's Fourth Of July here in the states, and everyone is celebrating with sales on their apps, including EA, Chillingo, Crytek, WB Games and more. Let's take a look, shall we?

First up is EA - from July 2th until July 9th, all their games will be $0.99 or free. Their pitch basically amounts to an "all our stuff is on sale" sale. That said, here are a few great games you should definitely pick up at these low prices.






Warner Bros. are also doing a "Everything is $0.99" sale, maybe just to prove they can. It's nice to see some competition here, but the indies are sure to feel the pinch. Even so, there are some great games to save money on. Here are a few we dig.




There are also some games on sale for Independence Day that don't hearken from the juggernauts of electronic gaming, but they're still worth your time and monies. Check 'em out below, but be sure to check the price before you buy - some of these are on sale starting on the 4th itself.

Alexandria Bloodshow Brings Hemophilia Back

Posted by Rob Rich on June 8th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It feels like it wasn’t all that long ago when Samurai Bloodshow (the rest of the title is too confusing so I’m leaving it off) managed to take me completely by surprise. The combination of strategy, card collecting, and over-the-top arterial spray brought a huge smile to my face. And now Sega is poised to do the same thing to me all over again. Albeit without the surprise since I know what’s coming this time around.

Alexandria Bloodshow is the official sequel to that other fantastic genre mash-up. This time players can take control of two separate armies – the Egyptians and the Greeks – as they attempt to collect, cut-up, and conquer. With the requisite art styles (Greek pottery, Egyptian hieroglyphics) to match of course. All the engrossing card gathering and deck building is still on offer, now with a whole new set of units to strategize with. Over 120 in all, actually. And with the two selectable armies, five difficulties, and seventeen stages it makes for a total of 170 campaign levels to conquer. And that’s not even taking the two player versus mode (via WiFi or Bluetooth) into account.

Alexandria Bloodshow is available on the App Store now, and it’s only $0.99. Okay, it's actually free to download but it's $0.99 to unlock the full game. Not a bad deal.

Love is in the Air. Also Gameloft Sales. And More Love.

Posted by Rob Rich on February 14th, 2012

No doubt there will be plenty of couples out celebrating this Valentine's Day. Lots of flowers, candy, romantic dinners and candlelight. No one really stops to think about the less glamorous side of the holiday; namely waiting in long lines to get into a restaurant for said romantic dinner, scrambling to find flowers and candy when at least half of the country is doing the same, and so on. Fortunately there's a way for iOS users to lessen the irritation and have an easier time enjoying the moments that really matter. In this case, I'm referring to Gameloft's Valentine's Day sale.

Of course rescuing a space princess in Earthworm Jim, wreaking havoc in Gangstar Rio: City of Saints or running amok in Rayman 2: The Great Escape won't substitute for making googly-eyes at each other from across the table. They will, however, make the wait for the table more bearable. And just in case finding "the right words" ends up being an issue, there's also Gameloft's Love Declaration Generator. Hey I'm just pointing out that it exists, I didn't make the thing.
















This Week at 148 Apps, November 21-25

Posted by Chris Kirby on November 26th, 2011

This week at 148Apps.com was all about the US celebration of Thanksgiving, and the inevitable retail aftermath known as Black Friday. Rather than fight the crowds, 148Apps founder Jeff Scott put together a comprehensive Black Friday app sale list that continues to grow, and grow and grow. Scott says, "App sales are nothing new, but the biggest of the year is here, and we’ll be tracking the best of the sale apps right here. Expect lots of updates over the weekend."

Take a look at the full list on 148Apps.

Jeff Scott also invited faithful 148Apps.biz readers to attend the upcoming AppNation III conference, saying, "Want to attend AppNation III? 148Apps network readers can get a 30% discount on the registration fee by using code 148APPS on the registration page."

Read more about the conference on 148Apps.biz.

Meanwhile, at AndroidRundown, site editor Rob LeFebvre celebrated the release of Disney interactive's Where's My Water? for the Android platform. LeFebvre writes, "Android has been part of the plan since the development of Where’s My Water? for the iPhone crowd. In fact, the game was originally developed with C++, to make it easier to port to Android. The challenge, he said, is making sure the game is the same high quality experience across the myriad devices represented by Google’s hip operating system."

Read the full story on AndroidRundown.

Finally, on our parent-friendly GiggleApps site, Amy Solomon reviewed Don't Let The Pigeon Run This App! Solomon writes, "I love these books. Pigeon can be cheeky, and my son has used pigeons’s one-liners, such as offering to “Give you five bucks” himself to try to stay up late. For this reason, some parents may feel that this pigeon is a bad influence on children, but I love the idea of my son practicing his ability to say “no” to this scheming pigeon as I want him to be prepared to stand his ground later in life when he is confronted by peer pressure, and I want him to recognize when he is being manipulated."

And that's a wrap for this Thanksgiving week! But don't forget to follow us on Twitter and "Like" us on Facebook to get the latest news, reviews and contests. See you next time!

Get Those Props Spinning, Pigs in Trees is Free for a Limited Time!

Posted by Rob Rich on October 10th, 2011

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: GO WHOLE HOG :: Read Review »

So there's this game about flying supines and home-wrecking avians that's pretty fun. The reason I'm bringing it up again almost 3 months later should be fairly obvious. But for the sake of argument and thoroughness, I'll elaborate.

For a limited time, Pigs in Trees is going to be absolutely free. It's got something to do with the game being released on another platform. Something about robots I think. Obvious skirting of the issue aside, now there's no better time to take to the skies and shoot down those pesky peckers. Not only is it one heck of a fun experience that can be had for zero cost, it's also recently received a pretty decent update, with 15 more levels, the addition of the Ninja Pecker and a couple new power-ups.

So it's free, it's entertaining, it's been recently beefed porked up. Why not go ahead and clear off 20 megs worth of space, hop on the App Store and give it a try? If nothing else, it should give my previous ramblings on the subject of pig-on-bird violence a bit more context.

Big Sale on Sentinel 3: Homeworld and Campaign 2 DLC

Posted by Rob Rich on September 27th, 2011

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: AMAZING :: Read Review »

Tower defense fans rejoice! Origin8, makers of the rather popular and critically acclaimed Sentinel 3: Homeworld have seen fit to drop the price for a limited time. Okay, it wasn't entirely their doing but rather Openfeint's FireSale promotion. Although technically it was the thousand Openfeint gamers who voted for the price drop, I suppose.

Regardless, Sentinel 3: Homeworld is temporarily marked down to a dollar. That's right, for an indeterminate about of time it's possible to get a hold of one of the App Store's most celebrated tower defense titles for next to nothing. Even better, as special "Thank You" for all the love, Origin8 has also temporarily dropped the price of the Campaign 2 DLC. So that's another dollar. Just in case anyone was wondering, that's $5 worth of some of the most highly regarded TD goodness for a mere $2.

I'm sure there are a fair number of people reading this who already own the game, but I also imagine a fair number of them have yet to get the DLC. No time like the present, right? And everyone else who loves tower defense games but still doesn't own it, wave those lame excuses bye-bye.

Chillingo is Having One Heck of a Busy (and Awesome) Week

Posted by Rob Rich on September 23rd, 2011

It's always nice when a developer releases a Lite version of their game so that the unsure can drop the "un," or when an app goes on sale. It's also pretty cool when a fairly well-established game gets a significant content update. It jumps beyond merely "nice" or "cool" and into pure "awesome" territory when a developer does all of those things at the same time.

In this particular case, I'm talking about Chillingo. This week, they've seen fit to bombard the App Store with all manner of sweetness, starting with a major content update to Feed Me Oil. The new and improved 1.2 version includes a new gravity-flipping mechanic and 15 levels to make use of it in. I seem to recall being rather fond of the game's initial release, and that was well before any of this Newtonian debauchery was added. Now? It's practically like getting a second game for the price of nothing. Or getting two games for a dollar if the user in question hasn't actually bought the game yet.

Next, we have 3 all-new Lite versions for the color-centric steampunk shooter Color Bandits, the surreal arcade puzzler Ranger Rocket and the family-friendly physics puzzle game Hungry Chicks. There's pretty much something for everyone in that lineup, provided they don't have some kind of psychological need to spend money. Well, except maybe RPG and platformer fans, but the latter will almost certainly enjoy seeing that the newly released NyxQuest is on sale.



Indeed, for an indeterminate amount of time the gorgeous (and apparently quite good) indie platformer NyxQuest will be on sale for a mere dollar. People such as myself who missed out on the initial launch sale have a second chance to fix their mistake and grab this gem on the cheap. Now, at the time of this writing it's still showing the price as $3.99 for some reason, but I've double-checked the App Store and it's most definitely $0.99. "For a Limited Time," of course.

Grab Some Mooniz for Free Right Now

It's been a while since I first took a look at Adrenaline Monki's Mooniz, but I remember spending what could be considered way too much time with it. As I've said previously, it's a battery eater. Since then there have been some updates including better compatibility with older devices, making it accessible to an even larger audience. Well now it's about as accessible as it's going to get, because Mooniz is completely free for a limited time.

That's right, for the low low cost of absolutely nothing, anyone can use their iOS device to save the world from an invasion of super-cute and cuddly lunar critters. As before, there are still in-app purchases for coins that can be used to buy power-ups, but none of that is really necessary in order to have a good time with it. Keep in mind, this "limited time" deal doesn't have any discernible end date, so I'd suggest getting a move on if poking colored moon monsters in the name of population control sounds like a thing worth doing.
