The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - October 17th

By , on October 18, 2017

Well it's Wednesday again. Doesn't time fly when you're doing all of the stuff and you don't take a moment to lay down on the grass and just let time stand still all around you. Oh that does sound nice doesn't it?

But what if you want something to play while you're laying down on the grass. And you don't have that much money? Well then you're going to need a list of all of the best games that are on sale on the App Store right now. Which is good, because that's what we do on Wednesdays here at AppSpy.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the games below to download the games. And if you've spotted anything that you think should be on the list, feel free to twonk it in the comments down there at the bottom of the article.

Don't Run With A Plasma Sword - Free

What starts off as a pretty simple autorunner soon turns into a super slick and difficult action platformer. It chucks new ideas in on a regular basis, and it looks pretty awesome too. It might not be the best game in the genre, but for free you really can't go wrong.

RayForce - £4.99 / $4.99

An arcade classic reimagined for touchscreen. The whole Ray series is actually on sale right now, but this is a good place to start. It's a top down blaster, although it doesn't quite reach the levels of bullet hell some other games in the genre do. It's reasonably expensive still, but it's still well worth checking out.

Bottom of the 9th - £3.99 / $3.99

A game that somehow manages to capture the essence of baseball. But with dice. It's an adaptation of a well-loved board game, and this digital version is every bit as good. There's a deep RPG element to things as well if you're willing to put the work in. And you should be willing, because it's a lot of fun.

Rogue Hacker - 99p / 99c

What would happen if Reigns was set in a dystopian future full of mega corporations and hackerS? Well it would look something like Rogue Hacker I expect. There are plenty of choices to make, and each of them will change the way the game plays. It's an interesting idea, and it's got an awful lot going for it too.

Slayaway Camp - £1.99 / $1.99

It might just be a puzzler, but there's an awful lot of love in this one. If you're a fan of 80s slasher flicks you're going to absolutely love this one. You're playing a homicidal maniac who needs to hack up teens and avoid the attentions of the police. Half of the fun here is figuring out how to unlock all of the violent death animations.
