EA has announced today that they'll be holding a 48 hour App Store fire sale. Over 25 of their titles will be on sale for just 99 cents each. Now, before you get too excited, it needs to be noted that the sale does not include the amazing new EA release, Dead Space, but there are still some very high quality gems on this list.
This might be the single most controversial game we've encountered since Baby Shaker debuted on the App Store back in 2009. Okay, it's nowhere near as bad as Baby Shaker, but some folks will undoubtedly take offense to this. The game is called Karoshi, and the player is tasked with ensuring that an unhappy Japanese salaryman commits suicide by the end of the level.
After lying dormant for seven years, EA has resurrected the NBA Jam franchise to raucous fan praise this past year. After a new HD version of the game was released late last year on consoles, the series will be migrating to yet another platform, the iPhone. The Fight Night series hasn't been inactive for nearly as long, but it too will be getting an iOS release.
Adult Swim Games isn't the only company putting its wares on sale today. The developer of the popular freemium title Pocket Frogs has announced that its entire catalogue of games will be available for free. It's uncertain how long the sale will last.
Retro-inspired platformer, League of Evil, has been released on the App Store today. If you were ever a fan of retro classic, Mega Man, or modern classic Super Meat Boy then you'll definitely want to check this one out. At $0.99, this is an extremely cheap way to get your retro gaming fix.
Sometimes you find out an app you've never heard of has been in the App Store top 100 for a ridiculously long time. Sometimes they’re apps that you’ve never downloaded -- none of your friends have downloaded -- nobody you know has ever even played it. We decided to put a few "classics" through the ringer and then speculate absurdly about what the true connection for these Top 100 hangers really is.
iOS games don't get a whole lot more unique than 2009's Hysteria Project. The game was essentially an indie horror movie, but with interactive video game elements tossed in. You play a role in a low-budget horror film, helping the main character along the way. For a video game its fairly low-involvement, but it's a really neat experience nonetheless. Now the story continues as the sequel is released.
