The best games on sale for iPhone and iPad right now - January 3rd

The tree is down, the presents you didn't like have all been returned or thrown into the bin, and now we're back to trudging through the misery of winter without a single thing to look forward to. Well there might be things to look forward to, like wasting your money on things you don't really need.

Which is good, because Wednesday is when we round up the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store. There are some surprisingly good new deals out there, so much so that I actually had to pick which ones to talk about rather than just picking the first five semi-decent games I saw.

You can poke the emboldened name of the games below to grab them from the App Store. And if you've seen games you think should be included here, feel free to stick them in the comments section at the bottom. Go on, you know you want to.

Dungeon Rushers - 99p / 99c

A super slick RPG that sees you rushing through a series of dungeons. Well there's more to it than that. The battle system is really smart, and there's a good story here too. Well worth picking up for that dirt cheap price.

Out There Chronicles - Ep 1 - 99p / 99c\

A gamebook set in the same exciting world as Out There. There are alien races to encounter, and a mystery to uncover. If you like space and you like reading, then there's really nothing stopping you picking up the game for less than a quid, is there?

Volt - 99p / 99c

A clever puzzling platformer that works brilliantly well on mobile. It's all about swinging and dangling around a robotic world. It looks ace, and there's a ridiculous amount of content here for such a low, low price.

The Machines - £2.99 / $2.99

The AR revolution might not have kicked off with quite as big a bang as some people expected, but that doesn't mean there aren't some awesome experiences out there. This is probably the most awesomest of them. It's got big robots in it for starters. In fact, that's enough really. Big robots are ace.

Danmaku Unlimited 3 - 99p / 99c

Bullet hell shooters shouldn't work on mobile, but somehow they do. And this is one of the finest examples of the genre. Big shiny lasers, masses of alien ships to weave around, and bosses that'll make you go "holy moly that is a huge ol' boss and no mistaking."
