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.

Occasionally inaccurate controls don't stop NyxQuest being an excellent indie platformer.
