UPDATE: Most of these games have reverted to their original prices. Click here for the most recent list of free and discounted games.
Here it is a folks: a curated list of the best free and discounted iPad and iPhone games to play this weekend. More than likely these games are going up in price in the next few days, so if you have ever been interested in any of these, be sure to pick them up before Monday morning.
- Assassin’s Creed Pirates – [$4.99 > FREE] – Buy Now – A strategic naval combat game based on the popular Assassin’s Creed console franchise.
- Atom Run – [$2.99 > FREE] – Buy Now – This one’s a very fun 2D action platformer. It feels retro but looks modern. Definitely worth the price of nothing. What else is there to say?
- Jenga – [$0.99 > FREE] – Buy Now – The digital version of the classic tablet-top balance game.
- Millie – [$0.99 > FREE] – Buy Now – A puzzle game that feels like a cross between Snake and Pac Man. It’s a great casual game that’s fun and challenging.
- Devil Shard – [$1.99 > FREE] – Buy Now – Puzzle-based RPG with a retro look and feel. Definitely worth a try if you’re into classic GameBoy era gaming, but still want a somewhat modern approach to gameplay.
- Star Command – [$2.99 > $0.99] – Buy Now – Some have described this as FTL lite. Some love it, some hate it. If you’re looking for a single playthrough, highly accessible mobile game, give it a shot.
- Monument Valley – [$3.99 > $1.99] – Buy Now – We can’t recommend this game enough. it’s a short play, a few hours maybe, but it’s one of the most unique and stylish experiences you’ll have on your iPhone or iPad. Read the Gamazoid Review.
- Out There – [$3.99 > $1.99] – Buy Now – If Star Command is FTL Lite, this is FTL, if FTL was a casino game. It’s extremely random, but that also makes it highly replayable. It’s definitely fun in short bursts. Read the Gamazoid Review.
- Blek – [$2.99 > $0.99] – Buy Now – Beautiful and, dare I say, revolutionary touch-based puzzler. You kind of have to see it to really understand it, so we say, just buy it. Read the Gamazoid Review.
- Threes – [$1.99 > $0.99] – Buy Now – Another revolutionary game. This is probably the single best casual puzzler on a touch device. It ranks up there with Sudoku and Tetris, but it works better on an iPhone or iPad than those games. Again, if you don’t already own it, don’t ask questions. Just buy.
While not discounted, we have to also mention Magic 2015 as a worthy free game that just hit the App Store this week. To be honest, it’s more of a demo than a free game, but we’re mega-nerds here at Gamazoid, and Magic: The Gathering players from way back. Despite all the great deals this weekend, we’ll be playing Magic 2015.
Have a great weekend everyone, and happy gaming!
