Warhammer Quest is Having a Big Sale on In-App Purchases This Weekend

Posted by on April 25th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

First of all, Warhammer Quest is a great game. You should go get it if you haven’t already, even if you missed out on it when it was free last week. But regardless of whether or not you were able to take advantage of the sale, there’s a totally new sale you can take advantage of this weekend.

From now through Sunday, pretty much all of the game’s in-app purchases are on sale for $0.99 each. That means new regions, enemies, heroes, etc. You can grab them all for a very reasonable price.

Warhammer Quest is available on the App Store for its more typical (and still quite worthwhile) price of $4.99.

Posted by on April 24th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

SEGA’s kart-inspired racing romp Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is now free. Additionally, on April 29, players will be able to enjoy two new members on the character roster: Wreck-It Ralph and Metal Sonic, who are both unlockable.

There are also two new tracks, Galactic Parade and Outrun Bay, and a new Boss Cup Challenge.

From the press release:

Dropping the price to free brings Sonic’s high speed hijinks to a wider audience and expands the multiplayer community. With more iconic characters, more challenging modes, and more twisting tracks, there’s never been a better time to join the race. To thank everyone who helped make the original launch a success, SEGA has gifted players a VIP Pass valued at $4.99 that features four playable characters including the blue blur, Sonic himself. In addition, the game will remain completely ad-free for those who first bought the game.

We recently reviewed the game; Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is available for download on the App Store for free.

Don’t be a Pygon, Download Horn Right Now While it’s Still Free

Posted by on April 16th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Phosphor Games’ Horn is a pretty great adventure that most iOS gamers would do well to experience, and it’s currently free.

If for some odd reason you haven’t helped the young apprentice save his village (and the rest of the world, really), well there’s no time like the present is there? And if that’s not enough, there’s also the challenge modes that will keep you busy well after the main story has concluded.

For the time being, you can grab Horn off the App Store for free. I’d suggest you avoid dawdling.

We had an opportunity to give the game a go late last year, and liked it very much.

A while back Rodeo Games released Warhammer Quest, and it was good. Quite good, in fact. It garnered a fair amount of praise even before releasing new campaign DLC. And now it’s been chosen as Apple’s App of the Week.

So basically Rodeo’s critically acclaimed and (arguably) best tactical RPG to date is currently free. Totally and completely free. You’ll still have to cough up a few bucks for the extra content of course, but I mean come on. Free Warhammer Quest. Download it!

Flying Hamster and Flying Hamster HD are Free and Updated to Support MFi Controllers

Posted by on April 9th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Flying Hamster brags that it has almost 2 million players worldwide, and I don’t see any reason to doubt that as the truth. After all, this game is about flying hamsters. It features 6 unique worlds, 35 different enemies, and 8 “freaky” weapons that you can find throughout each level. Additionally you can control the game in four different ways, allowing the player to use either on-screen controls or the accelerometer.

Flying Hamster and its HD version were both recently updated with support for 4-inch screens, iOS 7 game controllers, and Game Center. But the best part about the recent update is that both games are now completely free to download. Head over to the App Store and grab one (or both) of them now.

Brutally Tough Platformer Stealth Inc is on Sale for $0.99 and You Should Buy it

Posted by on April 3rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Stealth Inc is a very awesome (and very difficult) platformer that we thought pretty highly of when it came out back in November.

This brutal (in every sense of the word) plarformer won us – well, me anyway – over with it’s slick style, tight controls, unrelenting difficulty, and charm. What? Ridiculously violent and challenging games can be charming, too! Anyway it’s currently priced at $0.99, which is beyond worth it.

Seriously, if you like platformers and haven’t played Stealth Inc yet (or have played it but wouldn’t mind having it on your phone), $0.99 is a steal.

République Earns Excellence Award, Celebrates with Limited-Time Sale

Posted by on March 24th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Hot on the heels of a storytelling award from IMGA for its stealth thriller, Republique, Developer Camouflaj is celebrating by temporarily slashing the price of the well-received game down to $2.99 for a limited time.

Camouflaj designer Ryan Payton appreciates the accolades. “We set a high bar for ourselves with the first episode of République, so it feels great to see the public’s positive response, especially in foreign markets. This is a great start for the franchise and our little independent studio,” says Payton. “In the interim between EP1 and EP2, we are lowering the price of Republique for a short period to give more players a chance to experience the pilot episode. We hope they’ll find it as engaging and innovative as so many critics and players already have.”

We had an opportunity to take a look at the Kickstarter-backed project late last year.

République will remain on sale on the App Store until March 27.

Do you enjoy playing stressful “steady hand” games like Jenga but hate all the setup and cleanup involved? Well this is your lucky day. Or maybe week. NaturalMotion’s Jenga and Jenga HD are currently on sale for absolutely free.

You can download Jenga off of the App Store in its many forms right now for free.

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, which actually received the honor of being a 148apps Editor’s Choice game, was recently updated to include a new “Promo Pack;” a purchasable upgrade that packs a variety of new cards.

seusssaleI am excited to let readers know about the important sale that Oceanhouse Media will be having from Friday, February 28, through Thursday, March 6, discounting their entire library of Dr. Seuss apps – including both the classic Dr. Seuss titles as well as apps from The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library, all to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd. Personally, I can tell readers that during the years before I had the opportunity to review applications I would take full advantage of this annual super-Seuss sale, gathering titles for my son at a wonderful discount that allowed me to try stories with I was not familiar for little financial risk and with great success, creating new family-favorite tales that I thoroughly enjoy to this day.

I greatly appreciate being able to listen to the optional professional narration included within each of these apps as I honestly find much of Dr. Seuss difficult to effectively read out loud. Subtle, pitch-perfect sound effects can be found within these adaptations of which I quite fond, adding new dimensions to these timeless titles. The original illustrations are included within and look bright and appealing against the backlit screens of the iPad or iPhone. Children will benefit from the highlighted text as well as the ability to tap a word to hear pronunciations if extra help is needed while reading as well as other features associated with these applications.

For the first time, this sale includes each of the 44 classic storybooks by Dr. Seuss and those from the related The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library; including Oceanhouse Media’s anthology applications Dr. Seuss Beginner Book Collection 1 and 2, Dr. Seuss Short Story Collection, I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! and Other Stories – Dr. Seuss and The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories – Dr. Seuss. Enjoy 80% off of five of Oceanhouse Media’s most popular Dr. Seuss apps, as well as one dollar off other titles and special pricing for the storybook collection apps. These thoughtfully narrated Dr. Seuss apps have allowed me to sit back and listen to these stories along with my child, and I can say that I enjoy these storybook apps sometimes more than even he may, making this yearly sale truly wonderful.

Hit the jump to see all of the Oceanhouse Media titles on sale or head to the App Store directly to check out their full list.

It’s been a bit of a long and bumpy road for Realmac Software after they released Clear+ on the App Store last year. First there was the issue with removing the original version to make way for the universal build, then there was confusion when they put the original back up and users weren’t sure which version they needed. However a plan is in motion to straighten all of this out once and for all.

The details can be found on Realmac’s website, but the gist of it is that they’re going to cut it back to one single universal app – making the original Clear iPad compatible. Current users won’t need to do anything as this will just roll out as a regular update. For users looking to switch over without having to pay for the change, Realmac will be dropping the app’s price to free for a couple of days over the coming weeks. If you’d like to be notified of when you can jump in and grab your free “upgrade” (of a sort), you can sign up to receive an email notification at the bottom of this page.

Appy is doing something a little different for the Valentine’s Day weekend. Rather than putting their games on sale, they’re putting all of their games’ in-app purchases on sale for $0.99 each. So every single IAP in all of their games – FaceFighter Ultimate, Trucks & Skulls, Animal Legends, and SpellCraft School of Magic – is $0.99. Even if it used to be $99.99.

It’s certainly something different, I’ll give them that. I think it’ll be interesting to see how this sale pans out.

Max Axe has been designated Apple’s App of the Week, and as such it’s had a temporary price drop to zero dollars. So for no money down you can get your hands on all the endless running and axe-tossing little old Max can handle.

So why not grab it while it’s free?
