Ubisoft was proud to announce today that Assassin’s Creed Pirates is being featured as the Free App of the Week in the App Store. This news comes alongside the fourth update being released.
The update includes new missions that take players to La Isla de la Juventud for slave liberation. The mission unlocks exclusive rewards as part of the new daily reward system. Players will receive increasingly valuable rewards every day just for playing.
The update also has ship customization so you can sail the seas in style. Lastly, new players will be happy to hear that they will receive a Starter Pack in the store and have several tutorials to reference as they begin their ruthless life of piracy.
Check out Assassin’s Creed Pirates for free on the App Store while you can.
It feels like we just had a big iOS game sale. Actually, we did just have a big iOS game sale. And yet here we are again, with almost 20 different games suffering from a severe case of Pricedropicitis. Or something like that.
We’re not entirely sure why so many games (and so many notable ones at that) have suddenly gone on sale but here they are, on sale, ready for you to snap them up.
Seriously, there are some really great titles on this list. If you’ve been on the fence about downloading games like Threes! or Eliss Infinity, now’s the time to fix that.

Fantastic puzzle game, The Room Two, is currently on sale for $0.99 and, well, I don’t really want to say any more than that. It’s brilliant – what more do you need to know?
Richly deserving of our Editor’s Choice award at the end of 2013, the game has you attempting to unlock multiple boxes in order to piece together the mystery that binds them all together. It’s a deeply atmospheric puzzle game that feels remarkably tactile in nature.
It was a bargain at its regular price and it’s all the sweeter at $0.99. Buy it now before the price goes back up.

There’s yet another update for the keenly supported side-scrolling adventure, BADLAND.
This latest update, number 18 for those who are counting, expands the game’s co-op multiplayer with 40 new levels – ensuring you can play through the whole story with up to four players, all on the same device. The substantial update also brings with it 120 new missions and 6 new achievements.
To celebrate such great news, BADLAND is currently 50% off in a summer sale, bringing its price down to $1.99 for a limited time only.
While you wait for the grill to heat up, or just waiting for the fireworks to start, you’ll probably want something to keep you occupied. Fortunately a lot of iOS developers have decided to put their stuff on sale for this Fourth of July weekend.
Really it’d be a shame to let such prices go to waste, right?
7/3 – It didn’t take long for a lot more games to jump on-board. We’ve got some stuff from 2K, Sid Meier, and more and it’s still just the first day!
7/4 – Now things are really starting to get moving. Arcade classics, popular favorites – even Autumn Dynasty is getting in on the action.
7/4 Part II – The flood has slowed down a little but a healthy selection of games has been added, including Siegecraft and Tennis in the Face.
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 enjoyedboth 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.

Impressively titled, Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game, is currently on sale and will cost you a grand total of absolutely nothing.
We weren’t entirely impressed by it upon first release in April, mostly because it’s a little repetitive. Having said that, for free, what have you got to lose? If you’re like me and a sucker for blockbuster movie tie-ins, you’ll probably find something to enjoy here.
We’re not entirely sure why it’s on sale or for how long, so grab it quickly while you’re thinking about it!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game is available from the App Store now.

Classic fantasy adventure board game Talisman is currently on sale on the App Store, priced at only $3.99. It’s all in aid of the imminent release of The Frostmarch.
The board game app is the officially licensed version of the Games Workshop game of the same name, in which players embark on a quest for the Crown of Command. Offering both local and real-time online multiplayer, it’s a relative bargain given the pricey physical alternative.
Talisman is on offer for a very limited time only, so swoop in and grab it for $3.99 now, if it appeals to your tabletop gaming sensibilities.

A sale has raced in for EA’s Need for Speed Most Wanted, bringing the price down to $0.99. No reasoning has been given for this sudden sale, nor is there any end date for this lower price, so those of you on the fence may not have much thinking time.
For those of you looking for opinions on the quality of the game, we at 148Apps gave the game 4.5 stars back in 2012, with the game also carrying a 8.3 rating over on the QualityIndex.

Be quick though, Boximize is on sale for a very limited time, courtesy of Apps Gone Free.
Halfbrick makes some pretty great games. Games like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. In fact, I’m betting there’s a pretty good chance you’ve already played many (if not all) of their games. But if you haven’t, now is the best possible time to fix that.

Just in time for the wrap-up of E3, Rodeo Games has dropped the price on their fantastic strategy RPG and past 148Apps Editor’s Choice award recipient, Warhammer Quest. What would once have set you back $4.99 is currently selling for a mere $0.99.
As far as we can tell there is no context for the price lowering, or for that matter any indicator as to whether this is a permanent price slashing, but it is best to assume that this is a limited time event. So move fast and snag one of the best strategy experiences that the App Store has to offer. It is a decision that you most certainly won’t regret.

Thanks to the work of studios like Double Fine, the point-and-click adventure genre has been revived on virtually every platform that offers games. A recipient of this good faith is German developer Headup Games, and their recent offering, The Inner World.
In celebration of being crowned, “Best German Game” at the German Computer Games Award 2014, the puzzler has now been marked down from $4.99 to a paltry $0.99. If a title is considered good enough to represent the best that an entire country has to offer, it has to be worth spending a buck on, right? Sounds like it is time to investigate what mysteries this “Inner World” has in store.

The shadowy world of LIMBO is an incredibly dangerous place. Although that doesn’t mean you should avoid a visit, seeing as it’s about as disturbing as it is critically-acclaimed. And it’s currently on sale for $1.99.
If you’ve never helped this featureless young boy brave death traps and giant spiders while in search of his sister – or even if you have but would like to do it on the go – now’s as good a time as any to give it a look. And remember: death is just a setback.

It seems like just yesterday indie development studio Camouflaj successfully Kickstarted their freshmen iOS release, République. Since then, not only has the title successfully released its first two chapters, but yesterday it was elevated to the status of Apple’s “Free App of the Week.”
Now, it is worth noting that the actual free portion of the game only consists of the base download, which includes the first chapter, but it should be a great way to give everyone an initial free taste. Each of the additional chapters will be available for $4.99, or a discounted season pass total of $14.99.

SXPD developers Little Chicken have today decided to “flick the switch” marked ‘Make the game free for a bit,’ meaning that the game can, for today only, be downloaded for absolutely nothing. The reason for this short sale is to celebrate an upcoming update, which will make the game into a Universal app, add Game Center support, and make adjustments based on player feedback.
We gave the game a solid 3.5 stars in our review a couple weeks back, so what have you got to lose?

Have you ever heard of a boardless board game? Though the concept may seem a smidgen crazy, that hasn’t stopped the insect-inspired tile game Hive from not only succeeding in physical form, but also making the jump to iOS back in 2012.
Well just in time for WWDC, developer Gen42 Games has announced that they are treating the $0.99 price point to a heavy dose of insecticide, resulting in a temporary free price cut. Get on this while you can, because this swarm will only be around for a limited time.

Who knew that iOS games could be so old? The classic strategy/adventure game Lords of Midnight actually turned thirty years old yesterday. Yes, you read that right. THIRTY YEARS OLD.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Chilli Hugger Software, the team behind the game’s port, will be putting the usually $4.99 game and it’s sequel Doomdark’s Revenge on sale for a mere $0.99! Both titles have received solid four star reviews and have a legacy that outlives a good portion of the iOS gaming audience. It looks like now is as good a time as any to see what all the hype is about.
Pahelika is point-and-click/puzzle adventure that we had an opportunity to review a while back. The game allows players do mostly logical tasks like exploration, using components to create new objects, mixing potions, and fixing stuff.
To take advantage of the savings, just download Pahelika: Secret Legends Free and upgrade to the full version from within the app at the reduced price. This $0.99 sale will run from today, May 31, to Sunday, June 1.
That’s right, for a limited time you can partake in all the bridge building (and inevitable collapsing) fun for just $0.99. $1.98 if you want to get technical about buying both games. Might be worth a look, seeing as both games have been fairlywell-received.

The second game in the Infinity Blade series is currently free, so if for some odd reason you still don’t own it you’ve pretty much run out of excuses.
Infinity Blade II follows Siris as he attempts to free The Worker of Secrets and, hopefully, save the world. It also introduced players to two new weapon styles (dual wielding and two-handed), ClashMobs, and a more cohesive plot (see previous).
Really there’s no reason not to grab Infinity Blade II now while it’s free. I guess not unless you already own it, anyway.
Seems like we can’t have a holiday without a bunch of iOS games going on sale. Well you might as well take advantage, right?
That’s why you’re currently looking at a list of Memorial Day Weekend sales – most likely looking for that one big game you’ve just been waiting and waiting to see go on sale. So have a look! If you don’t see what you’re looking for, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find something else to tickle your fancy. And who knows? The list will be getting updated throughout the holiday weekend, so that thing you’re hoping to see just might make an appearance.
4/25 – A few more games have joined the list, including an over-caffeinated box and one very lost astronaut. Also Blek!
4/26 – Throw another right games on the pile – including more than a few RPGs from Kemco.
For a limited time you can jump into the shoes (scrubs?) of the infamous Dr. Lord Evilstein as he captures princesses and fends off do-gooding heroes. You’ll get to set up traps, summon minions, collect screams, and slaughter goodguys by the dozens – all for a buck. That’s a reasonable price to pay for eventual world domination, right?
Whether or not your intentions are good or ill, you can download Castle Doombad right now for $0.99.

Scanbot, the app that makes it easy to scan receipts, documents, whatever else, and easily upload said documents to the cloud, has gone free for iOS for today only, after selling 50,000 copies. It’s normally $1.99, but now those who need to scan their documents can do so for free if they act quickly. And there’s no in-app purchases right now, so there’s no catch, either. Act fast!
Bicolor, the minimalistic two color puzzle game from 1Button which we gave four stars back in May, has received sixty new hand-crafted levels in its latest update, bringing the level total in the game up to 240. Bicolor is available on the App Store now for $0.99.
