HUGE $.99 App Sale: Batman, Mass Effect, LEGO Harry Potter, Real Racing 2 & A LOT MORE
How about kicking off your Independence Day week (or rather, weekend… Wednesday’s festivities will carry over until Monday) early with some of the best deals we have seen to date this year on a number of the App Store’s hottest new releases. There are almost as many games as fireworks worth picking up this weekend, and all for $.99 (though the same can’t be said about firework prices).
Our Editor’s Choice $.99 app highlights:
Batman Arkham City Lockdown - Download
Oozing in atmosphere and vivid characters, Arkham City Lockdown plays like a cinematic romp through the Batman universe. Packing our caped hero’s punches with Infinity Blade style controls, it will ease your anticipation and the wait for Dark Knight Rises (which will also be released alongside a new open-world Batman game).
Mass Effect Infiltrator – Download
A full-featured mobile companion to the console release of Mass Effect 3. It nails the look and feel of the Mass Effect series on its surface, although it lacks the depth some RPG fans may crave. Nonetheless, is a standout iOS title for those willing to look past a flawed core.
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 – Download | Years 5-7 – Download
The boy wizard lives in these two polished mobile takes on the LEGO spin that the console game placed on the world of Witchcraft and Wizardry. They are whimsical takes on the series, each totaling more than a couple hours of game time. Originally released for the DS and PSP as well as 3DS and Vita in the case of Years 5-7, these represent a steal at $.99.
