Cyber Monday on the App Store - Plenty More iOS Games (and Apps) are on Sale

Posted by Rob Rich on November 26th, 2014

It's almost turkey time! Which means lots and lots of food but also lots and lots of sales. Some sales have even started a few days early, which is why we've put together a list of iOS games that are currently discounted (sometimes by a lot).

Chances are this list is only going to get bigger as we approach the weekend, so check back in with us from time to time to see what else you can nab for a reduced price.

[Updated 11/26]: Even more games have been discounted and it's still not even Thursday yet! A lot of fairly well known titles have joined the list this time, including games like Surgeon Simulator, Republique, and Thomas Was Alone.

[Updated 11/27]: Goodness but there are a lot more sales happening right now! Just under 40 games have been added to the list this time, with big names like Banner Saga, Table Tennis Touch, King Oddball, a whole bunch of Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks, and a whole lot more.

[Updated 11/28]: If you thought all the sales were done, you were mistaken. Even more price drops have gone into effect since yesterday, for big titles like Joe Denver's Lone Wolf, Knightmare Tower, Talisman, and Kingdom Rush. But that's not all. We've also updated the list to include apps! You can click the link below to jump to the Apps page.

[Updated 11/30]: Yep, we're still going. The list is still growing, and will most likely continue through Monday. Currently we're looking at a number of board game additions like Eclipse and Kahuna, as well as plenty of non-board games like Warhammer Quest and The Firm.

[Updated 12/1]: Happy Cyber Monday! A few titles have returned to regular price over the weekend, but several are still discounted and we've got plenty more to add to the list. And Little Inferno and Infinity Blade II are just the beginning.

But alas, you'll likely never know that this game is very much worth getting at this price, especially with The Room Three set to release next year.
