The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - August 9th

Well, would you look at that. It's finally stopped raining. Again, this probably doesn't have any bearing on your existence if you don't live near me, but the sun is out again and I can feel the first soft caresses of autumn rolling in the window. This is a good thing. Especially if, like me, you have the constitution of a seal.

With that in mind, or more likely, with none of that in mind, it's time to round up the best games on sale on the App Store right now. There are some pretty good games on the list this week, although it took me a while to find them, because they all went on sale earlier in the week. But I persevered, for you.

As per, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you think I've missed anything, feel free to put your suggestions in the comments at the bottom of the article. I know you won't, but I have to ask.

Her Story - £2.99 / $2.99

If you haven't played Her Story yet, then shame on you. It's one of the finest games on the App Store, if not all of the stores all around the world. A clever narrative about death weaves itself around a series of interview segments. You push the interviews on, searching for key words. It's super smart, utterly enthralling, and you really should play it.

Banner Saga 2 - £4.99 / $4.99

Last week I suggested you pick up the Banner Saga for cheap. This week you can grab the Banner Saga 2 for cheap. This one continues the story from the first. It's just as grim and depressing, just as gorgeous, and full of the same kind of bleak choices. Lots of vikings are going to die. It's going to be your fault. How you deal with it is up to you.

Paul Pixel - The Awakening - 99p / 99c

A love letter to the golden age of the point and click adventure. Paul Pixel has been squished down with no little style in order to fit it in your pocket. And the end result is something pretty darn good. It's accessible to anyone who didn't grow up playing Lucasarts games, but anyone who did will have a grin on their face for the entirety of the game.

Linia - Free

A really smart puzzler that's all about lines and shapes. It's designed to relax you, and it's the perfect game to wind down with after a long day of doing whatever it is you do during the day. You'll need a sense of rhythm to succeed, as you trace lines on the screen to cut up sections into the correct colours.

Corpse Party BLOOD DRIVE - £9.99 / $9.99

A big, bonkers, Japanese horror game. It might seem like a tenner is a lot to ask for a game that's on sale, but this is the cheapest Corpse Party BLOOD DRIVE has ever been. It's been over 30 quid for the last few months. If you're a fan of the series, this is the perfect time to get it got. You're talking to people, searching around on a map with only a flashlight in your hand, and trying not to go aww at all the cutesy characters.
