Currently on sale for the grand price of nothing is third-person shooter, EPOCH.2.
The game has you trekking across a post-apocalyptic landscape as you battle robot against robot. Using an intuitive finger swiping control method you’ll be able to select targets, dodge incoming fire, make split-second tactical decisions, take cover, and launch various special abilities. Wave upon wave of enemy robots are against you in arena-style combat, so it should be a pretty frantic but satisfying affair.
EPOCH.2 is on sale in honor of it being Apple’s pick for App of the Week this week, so expect it to be a pretty limited offer.

A Dark Room may not be much to look at, but behind the simple menus and walls of text is an unexpectedly involved (and super-bleak) adventure. And from now until Monday morning (8/4), it’s totally free.
If you’ve been holding off on checking out A Dark Room for whatever reason, well then now is the time to fix that. Regardless of how off-putting the lack of graphics may or may not be, it’s a free download. And “as grandpa Alfonse always said, ‘anything free is worth saving up for.'”
You can (and should) grab A Dark Room off the App Store now for free.

All three games in the Anomaly tower-defense/offense series are currently on sale at attractively low prices.
We’ve enjoyed them all over the years with Anomaly: Warzone Earth and Anomaly 2 both garnering 4 stars, while Anomaly Korea achieved a very respectable 4.5 stars. They’re all great examples of how turning the tower defense formula on its head can produce a great series of games.

It’s a big day for Simple Machine’s word game, LEX. For one thing, it’s just been updated so that it now throws double letters into the mix, plus there are some handy bug fixes going on.
To celebrate that update, LEX is entirely free to download for today only!
Plus, for the coding buffs out there, LEX has also been made open-source for the public, meaning that coders can manipulate the code as they please if they wish. Simple Machine has explained that they believe “ownership is becoming obsolete,” which is why they want to inspire young and old through this venture. A video below explains more on the matter.
For those yet to try LEX, I’d suggest diving in now before the price goes back up.

Presumably due to the forthcoming movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run is free on the App Store at the moment.
The game allows you to control your favorite turtle as he runs, jumps, fights, and drives his way through New York’s endless landscape.
We weren’t too keen on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run when it first came out, mostly because there was a ton of grinding to it. However, as it’s gone free for a limited time this might be just the right time for you to see if you agree with us.
We’re not sure how long it’s on sale for, so we’d suggest grabbing it as soon as possible.

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.

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.

Despite the fact that birthdays are commonly for receiving gifts, Magnetized‘s developer Rocky Hong has decided to turn the table and do some gift-giving of his own.

Starting today (June 27), Magnetized will be made available on the App Store for free. On Sunday, June 29, the price will climb to $0.99, followed by a second jump to $1.99 on Tuesday, July 1. The moral of the story is “the early bird catches the worm.”
Hopefully Rocky has just as great of a birthday as he is giving to his consumers.

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.
