Today Glu Mobile announced that 15 of their hit iPhone games are going on sale for $0.99 a piece. The Mega-Sale sale started today and ends on Monday the 11th, offering a great opportunity to pick up some decent games on the cheap. Some of the more popular games in the bunch include Glyder 2 [App Store], World Series of Poker Hold'em Legend [App Store], Beat It! [App Store], and Super K.O. Boxing 2 [App Store]. You can check out the full list of apps included in the sale below!
Many developers are offering special deals this holiday season and more are coming in every day. The first on our list is Favit [App Store], which is currently on sale for $0.99. Favit allows you to see some of the most highly fav'd tweets from the Twitter tracking site, Favstar.fm.
Next is 2XL ATV Offroad [App Store], which is also going for $0.99; down from $7.99. It's a sweet-looking ATV racing game that's definitely worth getting at the sale price.
Darkroom Premium [App Store], is an awesome iPhone photography app and it's free right now. It has a mode that only takes a photo when your hand is the steadiest, but it also gives you a timer, a grid guide, and autosave.
Our two favorite apps from The Iconfactory have just gone on sale! Ramp Champ [App Store], the wonderful carnival-style skee-ball game, is completely free for a limited time, down from its usual price of $1.99. It's incredibly pretty and tons of fun to play; we gave it a 5 out of 5. It's recently been updated with several new social networking features and bug fixes, so it's the perfect time to pick up a copy.
Frenzic [App Store] is also on sale for $0.99, down from its standard price of $2.99. We love Frenzic just as much as Ramp Champ, as you can tell from our review. We're not sure how "limited" either one of these deals are, so we recommend picking them up as soon as you can! Both are solid games.
Now that everyone's all tired out from Black Friday bargain shopping, we figured we should pimp some of the sweet deals on the App Store! There's no particular order to this list, but it's full of awesome stuff. There are quite a few great games on sale, including Sims 3, Terminator Salvation, Tap Tap Dance, and many more. You can also find many of our favorite non-games on sale, such as Delivery Status Touch, Keymote, and Convert. I also highly recommend checking out the great deals on GPS navigation apps, including ones from Navigon and TomTom.
The full list of our favorite App Store deals follows after the break!
