Updated on December 1st 2014, at 09:50: It's Cyber Monday! Another made up holiday that forces you to constantly refresh websites to see if anything worthwhile is going cheap.

The Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales are mostly still going strong, so we'll just keep adding to this list and telling you what's best to spend your hard earned iTunes gift cards on.


Original article follows...


It's Thanksgiving. So, first off, happy Thanksgiving to all of our US readers. Hope you have a great time and eat and drink until you're comatose. If that's what you want.

But the holiday also means App Store sales. Rather than just listing all the games you can get for a bit cheaper, we thought we'd curate a list of only the finest, most delectable games that are on sale.

We'll update the list as and when we spot new games having their prices slashed, so make sure you check back regularly. It'd be awful if you missed out on something.

Click a game's name to read our review, and tap its new low price to be taken to the App Store where you can spend your hard earned cash.

If you see any sales you think are worthy of a place on this hallowed list, then share them in the comments at the bottom.
