Welcome to Wednesday my lovelies. Remember, if anyone wishes you a happy hump day today, it's your sworn duty as a member of the AppSpy community to stare them directly in the eye and sigh as loudly and dramatically as you can physically manage. Trust me, it's in the rules.

To try and deflect from the agony of having to talk to other people today, I figured it was only fair to do what I usually do on Wednesday. Which means I've gone right ahead and written up a list of the five best games that are currently on sale on the App Store.

There are even more gems out there for cheap though, so chuck any suggestions you have in the comments at the bottom of the article. Oh, and you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to swoop over to the App Store and download them. Bosh.

Reckless Racing 2 - Free

A bright and beautifuly silly racer that mixes dirt and arcade precision into some of the finest power-sliding action you're likely to have this week. It's filthy in all the right ways, and offers up the sort of racing that will have you on the edge of whatever seat you're playing on.

Active Soccer 2 - £1.99 / $1.99

A football game that might not have the polish of the likes of FIFA, but keeps things simple and engaging all the same. Sure it's more of a kick about in the park than the Champions League final, but sometimes that's far more entertaining.
