To celebrate Independence Day as well as the launch of Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein, Shenandoah Studio‘s Battle of the Bulge and Drive on Moscow: War in the Snow are now on sale for the next week.

On sale initially at $2.99, in an interesting twist, the price will steadily increase as the week goes by. An extra $1 will be added to the price each day from July 5 – meaning you should get in quick for the maximum discount of 70% off, only for today and tomorrow.

We really enjoyed both historical strategy games, so you know what to do. The games are on sale until July 10 but I’d suggest deciding quickly for maximum benefit.

It’s Independence Day here in the US, and the App Store is getting its fair share of the party with a ton of great games and apps on sale for low, low prices. Hooray!

We’ll keep this list updated as we find out more information, and as folks send us their sale plans for the Fourth of July. For now, then, here’s what we’ve got.

Update: July 4, 9:28am Better make sure you have all of your needed grilling supplies. Lots of charcoal, various things to throw on the grill, and of course beer (aka. fuel for the cook). We’ve also updated our list to include a couple dozen more great app and game sales.

Bastion

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has put several titles on sale, dropping all of its game prices to $0.99. This includes heavy hitters like Man of Steel in both regular and HD flavors, LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7, Batman Arkham City Lockdown, Scribblenauts Remix, LEGO Batman DC Superheroes, Midway Arcade and Bastion.

500x500_ST-Maj_enFrom HeroCraft, you can grab Majesty: The Northern Expansion for $0.99, instead of the regular $2.99. You can also unlock Strategy & Tactics: WWII for a low $0.99, instead of the more typical $6.99. Deep savings, indeed.

Blitz Games is coming in for some inexpensive gaming, offering nine new “Brain Box” levels to Paper Titans, a quirky little strategy puzzler that our very own Rob Rich reports his mom doesn’t hate. The full game with updates is price reduced for the holiday from $2.99 to $0.99, so get it while it’s cheap!

PaperTitans

Even free apps are getting into the spirit, like This Is Not A Ball Game‘s sale on in-app purchases for the long weekend. In addition to a sweet new update, the game’s pricing structure will change as follows, with the standard pricing for in-app purchases ($1, $3, $5, $10, $20, $50) dropping to half-off. The new promotional pricing will be $1, $2, $3, $5, $10, $25 for the same items and item packs. Note that the $1 items will not be half off, and will remain the same.

It’s July 4th, so we hope most Americans are out celebrating and reading this on an iPhone or iPad or between activities. But if you are still looking for apps to help make the day even better, we’ve rounded up four of our favorties that commemorate everything from US History to the traditional BBQ for you here.

Weber’s On The Grill

An instant classic last year, this grill guide from the masters at Webers has become an iOS standard for the BBQ set. They’ve added 27 new recipes since July 4th 2011, which makes around 300 total – 40 just for marinades and rubs. There are tutorial videos, tips on cuts of beef, and even a section to take notes. The app also makes creating last minute shopping lists a breeze.

This American Life

The popular public radio show has an app that features podcasts. It’s not easy to describe the content, it’s a grab bag of people, places, historical tidbits put together expertly to create an immersive listening experience, perfect for setting the tone on your way to the beach or the fireworks. The app has easily searchable shows dating back to 1995, making it something of a living, speaking American history museum. Look for easy social network sharing for those stories that inspire your patriotism.

iBartender

What’s the 4th of July without a few drinks? All-American beer is in most coolers, but if you’re looking for cocktails (easily turned into mocktails for those driving or little drinkers) you can spend hours searching online or just grab iBartender. It’s something of an App Store classic with recipes, shopping lists and pictures that will make you want to start the party early, and it was just updated to support the new iPad’s retina display along with new drinks to keep things fresh.

Presidents vs Aliens

Kids are an important part of Independence Day celebrations, and while it’s great for them to be excited about picnics, swimming pools and amusement parks, somewhere between those activities and the fireworks, you probably want them to know a little about what they are celebrating. President vs Aliens is more than just a US history app, it’s a silly Executive Branch showdown with E.T.s that will capture imaginations and have grown-ups wanting to take a turn. Kids won’t notice they are learning, and you’ll have more time to relax while waiting for the big light shows to start.

Hurrah, it’s Independence Day on Wednesday which means many of you can celebrate becoming independent from people like, well, me. So what better way of celebrating than with some fun games at a discounted price, courtesy of Chillingo.

Two great games will be reduced to a mere $0.99 for their Universal builds: The Act and Air Mail.

The Act is one of my favorites of recent times and worthy of our Editor’s Choice award. It’ll be particularly loved by those with a penchant for silent comedy and interactive storytelling. Telling the tale of a good natured window cleaner, who’s desperate to woo the woman of his dreams, it’s a light hearted and beautifully animated game.

Air Mail is similarly great, also garnering an Editor’s Choice award from us in May. Players enjoy taking the role of a fearless letter carrying pilot as they duck and dive around the skies, all in order to deliver the mail on time. Carter observed that it “has the feel of a Nintendo 64 or Dreamcast classic” which sounds pretty awesome to me.

$2.99
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2012-05-24 :: Category: Games

Both games are on sale for a limited time, priced at $0.99 each. Have a great July 4th!
