Oh look, it's Wednesday. What a time to be alive and for it to be Wednesday. I mean, it was always going to be Wednesday today, because today is the day that it is always Wednesday. Do you remember a time when today wasn't Wednesday? I doubt it, but I'm willing to be proven wrong, so I am.

Wednesdays are when we round up the five best games that are currently on sale on the App Store here at App Spy, so that's exactly what I'm going to do right now. There are some pretty decent games going cheap this week, and I reckon there's something for everyone in this here shiny and delightful chunk of content.

As is customary, you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to swoop over to the App Store and grab them. And if there's anything on sale you think should be included on the list, then smash your suggestions into the comments at the bottom of the article. Go on, have a smash.

Batman: The Telltale Series - Free

The first episode of the Dark Knight detective's adventure is free right now, so you don't really have any excuse not to pick it up. It's an excellent mix of the slickness we've come to expect from Telltale and the grim and gritty world of a man who dresses up as a bat. Don't blame me if you end up buying all the other episodes.

Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Light - £1.99 / $1.99

A polished and preened sequel that builds on the ticking-clock chaos of the first game in some ingenious ways. Even if you've not played the first one, this is well worth checking out. It's a fine blend of solo board game and mobile fun, and it offers the sort of challenge that some pocket gamers are going to absolutely adore.

Inferno 2 - £1.99 / $1.99

I could have picked any number of the Radiangames titles that are on sale at the moment, but this is one of my favourites. It's a neon twin-stick shooter that plays by its own rules and works brilliantly on mobile. If you're not familiar with the dev's back catalogue, now is the perfect time to go ahead and rectify that.

Pixel Boat Rush - Free

It's a game about pixel boats rushing. Okay, there's more to it than that. This retro-looking racer mixes ideas from a bunch of other games into a pretty entertaining whole. There's battling, wave jumping, and plenty of other things going on here. And for the low, low price of free you're going to be better positioned to look past some of its niggles.

Lords of Waterdeep - £4.99 / $4.99

This brilliant board game adaptation has had a couple of quid ripped off its price. It might bear the D&D branding, but don't expect too much in the way of dungeon crawling here. Instead you're taking control of the titular city. It's all about intrigue, political machinations, and trying to be the best lord there is. And it's pretty damn brilliant.
