The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - November 8th

By , on November 8, 2017

Look out of your window. You see that grey fuzz? That's Wednesday that is. It's come to get you, to claim you for its own. You're going to be dragged kicking and screaming to the Wednesday cave whether you like it or not.

That said, there is one way to stop the inevitable from happening. You could buy yourself a cheap iOS game. And it just so happens that I've provided you with a list of the five best iOS games that are on sale at the moment. What a coincidence.

As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've got your own suggestions of games that might keep Wednesday at bay, feel free to stick them in the comments section.

Braveland - 99p / 99c

Subscribe to AppSpy on

A slick and entertaining turn-based RPG that peels away a lot of the fluff from the genre and leaves you with an exciting experience that's the perfect fit for mobile. There's a lot of fun to be sucked out of this one, especially if you're a fan of the genre. If you're not, well, maybe leave it be.

Waggle Words - £2.99 / $2.99

It's a word game that's set in a beehive. Yeah, I don't know why either. It's also got an AR mode now if your iOS device can handle AR. Yeah, I don't know why either. Look past the gumph though and you'll find a clever twist on a genre that's become a little stale in recent years.

Worms 3 - £1.99 / $1.99

If you've got some friends who you like to play games online with, then this one's a no-brainer. The multiplayer here is some of the best that the App Store has to offer. The single player is pretty fun too. If you don't know the series, it's all about psychotic worms trying to blow each other up with dynamite-filled sheep. Obviously.

Spaceplan - 99p / 99c

Any game that describes itself as based on a misunderstanding of A Brief History of Time is fine by me. This one's got a gloriously silly sci-fi story, and it's charming and hilarious in equal measures. Sure it's just a clicker, but it's a clicker that will make you rethink how good clickers can be.

Frederic: Resurrection of Music Director's Cut - 99p / 99c

I think it's fair to say that, thematically at least, this week's games could best be classified as a little bit bonkers. I mean, this is a game about Frederic Chopin coming back from the dead and discovering he's part of a nefarious plot. And the only way he can get to the bottom of things is by competing in musical duels. A big puddle of ridiculous fun.
