If you're a frequent user of the App Store, you'll have noticed that it only takes a sniff of a special occasion for iPhone publishers to start slashing prices.

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching in the US, Japanese developers Kairosoft have decided to offer both Hot Springs Story and Pocket Academy at the discounted price of $1.99.

The latter of these titles tasks you with taking over a floundering school and turning it around by constructing new classrooms, forming extracurricular clubs, and attracting eager students to your revamped institute.

Hot Springs Story, on the other hand, charges you with creating a relaxing spa, where teachers can come and unwind after a long day teaching snotty kids. See what we did there?

You'll be in charge of crafting a perfect garden, erecting arcades, and providing your punters with somewhere to eat.

Both titles scored extremely well at review, with Pocket Academy nabbing a 4/5 and Hot Springs Story earning full marks.
