With Black Friday and Thanksgiving mere hours away, Japanese dev Kairosoft has taken this opportunity to slash the price of two of its top iPhone management sims Hot Springs Story and Pocket Academy.

Hot Springs Story is a unique game, to say the least, in which you try and build your sprawling spa resort up into the best around, using all of the business acumen you've acquired whilst watching The Apprentice.

Pocket Academy, meanwhile, follows a similar gameplay structure to Hot Springs Story, yet is set in a bankrupt school. You're given just eleven years to turn things around and climb the education league tables.

Both Hot Springs Story [buy] and Pocket Academy [buy] are available now for £1.49 / $1.99 on iPhone.
