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

By , on October 11, 2017

You might have noticed some changes on AppSpy over the past few days. We're just shaking things up a bit, trying to find what's good and what sticks and what y'all like. However, some things aren't going to change. Like Wednesdays. Why would you change Wednesday?

That means we're still going to be rounding up the best games that are on sale this week. Five of them, because everyone knows that five is the internet's magic number. This week's not the strongest of weeks, but there are definitely some games worth checking out.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them. And if you've spotted anything you think should have been included in this list make sure that you whack it in the comments at the bottom of the hot, hot content.

Blastball Max - Free

A clever twist on the match-stuff formula. It's not perfect, but for the low low price of nothing at all, it's definitely worth a punt. Essentially it's Connect 4, but you're moving the board around and using special moves. Also you're connecting five, which I guess makes it better?

Crap! I'm Broke: Out of Pocket - 99p / 99c

A game about trying to make enough money to stay alive. You need to work to earn money, then spend the money on things like rent and food. It's a bit more complex than that though, and it's all presented in a gorgeous cubist art-style that's unlike anything else on the App Store. Definitely one that you should be giving a go.

Age of Rivals - £1.99 / $1.99

This one is a brilliantly put together card game that sees you battling against an opponent. You're trying to build an empire, with both military and economic cards needed to win the game. You're also building a deck of cards. Basically there's a lot going on here, and you're going to love it.

Speedball 2 Evolution - 99p / 99c

Quite frankly the finest game about a violent future sport ever made. It's like ice hockey meets American Football but with more dismemberment. And yes, more dismemberment does make things better. It's possible I have a slight soft spot for Speedball 2, but that's because it's amazing. So there you go.

Adam Wolfe - £2.99 / $2.99

A decent murder mystery game with a pretty thick chunk of content. It plays better than it should, and there's a lot of interesting ideas here as well. It's not the greatest game in the genre, but if you're a fan of pointing, clicking, and solving mysteries you're going to find an awful lot to like.
