The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - May 10th

By , on May 10, 2017

Wednesday has come stumbling along again, the slovenly dog. It's tired and its eyes hurt and it can't remember last weekend and it hasn't made any plans for the coming one either. Sort it out Wednesday, you're making the other days feel uncomfortable.

I'll tell you what, I'll give you a hand by creating an excellent piece of content to distract the people from your ineffable uselessness. How about I choose the five best games that are on sale right now on the App Store? And you go and splash some water on your face? Cool.

Okay, so here's the list. As ever you can click on the emboldened name of a game below to get swooshed off to the App Store where you can download it. And if you've spotted any games you think should have made it on to this here piece of content, chuck them in the comments at the bottom.

Kahuna - £1.99 / $1.99

A strategy game that's all about old Polynesian gods. Use cards to build bridges, capture islands, and try and take control of the majority of the map. It's tense, it's slightly bonkers, and it's more exciting than a lot of action games out there.

Sine Mora - £4.99 / $4.99

One of the slickest shooters on the App Store. Massive bosses, huge waves of enemies, and a sparkling sheen that even now looks incredible. It might not be the best version of the game, but it's still well worth picking up.

Limbo - £2.99 / $2.99

A sad and disturbing platformer with some of the creepiest moments that gaming has to offer. Its art style has oft been copied, but never bettered. It's tough, but it works really well on mobile. If by any chance you've not played this yet, go and grab it right now.

Oceanhorn - £7.99 / $7.99

One of the biggest and best games on mobile. It's basically a Zelda game, but with a lot more going on than you'd expect from that simple description. It's gorgeous, it's enormous, and it's well worth the price that's being asked for it right now.

Brass - £3.99 / $3.99

A board game that's so deep it's entirely possible to get lost in its three different tutorials. But if you stick with it you'll find an incredible experience. It's tough to learn and even tougher to master, but stick with it and you'll find a wonderful game of industry, expansion, and strategy.
