Cheap thrills (Updated with more games)
Do you like games? Do you like money? Do you like it when really good games are available on the cheap so you can get lots of games without spending lots of money?
Then boy howdy do we have the news story for you.
First up is the terrific comic book caper Framed, which is a puzzle game about moving graphic novel panels to rewrite the story and keep your protagonist safe from the fuzz. It was £3.99 / $4.99, it's now 79p / 99c. Flippin' well buy it.
Fotonica is a super slick first-person auto runner with a dashing vector art aesthetic. Craig says its "frequently savage, but ceaselessly beautiful", like a t-rex in a wig. Remember when it was £2.29 / $2.99? Well these days it's 79p / 99c, grandpa.
Alto's Adventure! Also known as "phwoar, what game is that? That's chuffing lovely that is. How much, though? £1.49 / $1.99?! Oof, a bit rich for my blood. I'm out". Well now it's 79p / 99c so go buy it you awful sub human.
Bean's Quest is, according to a 2012 review, "brilliant platformer with plenty of content and a gorgeously realised retro theme". Was £2.29 / $2.99, now £1.49 / $1.99. Cheap!
And finally there's Shadowmatic, which is about twisting a lump of clay until it casts the shadow of a teapot on the back wall. We called it "simple to the point of beauty, and beautiful to the point of becoming a work of art," like a t-rex in a wig. Was £2.29 / $2.99, now 79p / 99c.
[Update] But wait, there's more! Serene origami themed colour-swapper KAMI, which our reviewer called "a smooth and soothing puzzler", is also down from £1.49 / $1.99 to 79p / 99c.
Or if you're looking for something a little wilder, Pivvot is also on sale. We called it an "addictive, brilliantly designed blast of twitch and score-chasing", so it's definitely worth your time. It's gone from £2.29 / $2.99 to 79p / 99c.
