The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - October 4th

Another Wednesday is here. I hope you're all having an excellent week so far. There's a lot going on in the world though isn't there? Wouldn't it be nice if you could get some mobile videogame bargains to distract you from all of the horror. And if someone made a list of all the best ones going cheap on the App Store right now?

Oh, wait, that's what we do on Wednesdays around these parts. Don't you just love it when a plan comes together? I know I certainly do. And there are some classic games going for a song this week. Chirpy chirpy cheap cheap they're going. What an absolutely nonsense thing to type out.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to head to the App Store and grab them. And if you've got your own suggestions, feel free to hurl them into the comments down there at the bottom of this excellent slice of content.

Severed - £1.99 / $1.99

A brilliant mobile port of one of the last great PS Vita games. It's an action adventure that sees you slicing up monsters with swipes on the screen. But it's not Infinity Blade. It's smarter than that, deeper, and has its own unique art style as well. And for less than a couple of quid it is an absolute steal.

Burly Men at Sea - £3.99 / $3.99

A game that's all about stories. You might finish it in ten minutes the first time round, but that doesn't mean you've finished the game. There are hundreds of different choices to make as you play through the narrative, and the decisions you make are going to change an awful lot of things. It's like a bedtime story in game form, but one that never quite plays out the same.

Super Powerboy - 99p / 99c

Subscribe to AppSpy on

It might be an auto-runner, but there's a brilliant game bubbling about here that really deserves to be played. It's clever, it's tricky in places, and it's also absolutely stunning. Upgrade your special power suit to get more moves, and make your way through 45 hand-designed levels. Sounds pretty damn good, right?

Dungeonism - Free

Dungeonism is sort of like a casual roguelike. It's not that casual, but it does dispense with some of the more antagonistic elements of the genre in order to make it casual. There's no permadeath here, for example. If you've been put off by just how angry some roguelikes are, then this is a decent game to ease you into things. And it's free.

Goat Simulator - 99p / 99c

Yes it's completely ridiculous. And yes it's the sort of game that's sometimes more fun to watch than it is to play. But it's also less than a quid. In fact the whole Goat Simulator canon on mobile is on sale for the same price right now. So if you want to add to your goat-based collection now is pretty much the perfect time to do it.
