If you’ve been looking for an excuse to indulge your twin loves of barmy time-travel stories and time-management, then you’re in luck. G5 Entertainment has discounted its well received iOS title Jack of All Tribes between now and September 5th.

This reduction – an impressive 80 per cent – means that iPhone and iPod touch owners can now snap up the game for a mere 69p/99c. Meanwhile, iPad owners can grab Jack of All Tribes HD for £1.99.

The game lets you travel back in time to rule a prehistoric tribe, overseeing the building of huts, dispatching tribesmen to gather fruit, and even placating your primitive subjects with booze.

Besides offering a biting satire of colonialism (it doesn’t), Jack of All Tribes is a neatly executed sim with a nice difficulty curve and a pleasing level of variety - qualities that earned it a commendable Pocket Gamer Silver Award.

Prices return to normal on September 5th, so if you’re a fan of bargains and exploiting primitive cultures you’d better act fast.
