As always, the holidays brings out the big guns when it comes to app price cutting. This time around is no exception, with some familiar developers going crazy with the discount action. Why wait for Cyber Monday when you can get your game on right this very minute?
It's my last Friday before maternity leave. So with visions of onesies dancing in my head, I present to you these awesome apps that are at newly lowered prices -- many in honor of the just-born iPhone 4S. After all, a new phone deserves some shiny new apps, does it not? Now you'll spend less money in the App Store, and have more money for diapers. (Yes, I realize I'm the one buying the diapers, not you. But bear with me here. I'm in no condition to argue...)
When we last left off with Puzzle Agent star Nelson Tethers, he'd successfully reopened the eraser factory in the mysterious Scoggins, Minnesota, but had many unanswered questions. What happened to the missing foreman? What's going on with the creepy gnomes that Nelson kept seeing? And who is that astronaut who plagues his dreams? Puzzle Agent 2 gets closer to answering these questions, but creates a host of new ones in the process. No one ever said being a puzzle agent was going to be easy.
It's Friday, it's summer, it's almost time for WWDC, and everyone's in a great mood. Saving money on fun iOS games -- or getting helpful non-game apps for free -- is just the icing on the cupcake. This weekend's price drops have something for everyone.
If you've been following the exploits of Marty Mcfly in Telltale Games adventure game adaptation of the classic 1980s sci-fi series then you'll be pleased to know that the latest episode in the series is now available on the App Store.

Strong Bad, the lucha-libre-masked antagonist of the Homestar Runner series of Internet cartoons has a simple task in Telltale’s game: knock the snot out of Homestar Runner. If you think this should be an easy task for an evil wrestler, think again. His adventures will take you through castles, conga lines, and kitchen cabinets, all in the name of great villainy. It’s been a while since Strong Bad has graced our computer screens and we were a little worried that his insulting songs and constant bragging might have lost some of their charm, but simply put, they haven’t.
Those of us in high school in the ’80s remember that speed as the key to time travel for Marty McFly and his pal Doc Brown in the Back to the Future movie. Telltale Games decided to bring this favorite pop/sci-fi blend to the computer screen for the enjoyment of all ages with Back to the Future: The Game. And bless them, they hit that magic speed again.
Even if you didn't participate in this year's Black Friday retail stampedes, there are still savings to be had if you know where to look.
