img_00233 Today’s Daily Double comes with a real gift from EA Games: Clue for $0.99. Meanwhile, the Appvent Calender is featuring Ickle Count (a kid-oriented counting game), and Gamevil has a bit of a bonus for us, too: Hybrid: Eternal Whisper is on sale for $2.99 for a limited time.

Let’s start with Clue. While this is wrapped in all of the traditional board game’s branding, it’s actually not the game you’re familiar with. Instead of a board game in which you compete against other players or the computer, it’s a one-player mystery-fest in which you step into the shoes of a sleuth. Once again, Mr. Boddy has been murdered, and it’s up to you to figure out which of his devious guests is at fault. We looked at Clue back in June:

Albeit quite different from the traditional Clue board game experience, this app is an excellent mystery solving puzzler. Some have criticized this game for being C.I.N.O., Clue in name only, if you will, but that is a strong criticism for an iPhone adaptation which retains much of the original whodunnit Clue spirit.

Given that this game usually goes for $4.99, this is the day to get it if you’re looking for a detective-style app. Has anyone else noticed that EA is putting a lot of its summer releases on sale?

The Appvent Calender’s offering is much less serious. Ickle Count is light-hearted and colorful—and above all, simple. The name of the game is counting. Numbered divers float in the water above a sea monster, and it’s your job to tap them in sequence as quickly as possible before time runs out. From the bright graphics to the silly theme, it’s clear that this one is targeted towards younger children, not older gamers.

IMG_0019So far we’ve had a morbid mystery and a cheerful counting game. Adding to the mix is Hybrid: Eternal Whisper, which differs starkly from our other two deals. Hybrid is a hardcore combat-based RPG with a fantastic combat system, a good amount of customization, and a heavy emphasis on combo moves. Unfortunately, it’s hampered by heavy dialogue and load screens, but for a serious gamer, the combat makes it all worth it. A recent update also added a great “battle only” mode. While this isn’t technically part of the Daily Double, it is on sale—50% off, in fact, which puts it at $2.99.

That brings today’s Daily Double to a close. As always, we’ll be back tomorrow!
