Pocket Sales: August 31st, 201701 Sep 2017 0
It's the end of the week; time to relax and get your game on... your hand? Lap? Want some new games but disinclined to pay full price? We've got you covered with four great options to head into your weekend.
Lost Portal (iOS Universal): $0.99
Let's kick it off with one of my all-time favorite games: the premium, single-player CCG Lost Portal. Picture Magic: The Gathering wrapped in a role-playing game and you'll have the general gist. Fans of CCGs—especially ones where you don't have to buy boosters, all the cards are obtainable in game for no additional cost—should definitely pick this one up. If you need more convincing check out my 5-star review.
The digital version of multiplayer tabletop adventure game Talisman is not only getting a new expansion with a ton more content (more on that in Out Now) but is on sale for just a buck.
Beholder (iOS Universal): $1.99
If you're ready to make some tough choices in a grim, dystopian future now's your chance. Beholder, a game where you run an apartment building and must spy on and rat out your unpatriotic neighbours, is on sale for its lowest ever price (normally $5). Michael wasn't super impressed but did give the game a solid three stars.
Sunless Sea (iPad): $6.99
Sunless Sea -- Failbetter Game's beautiful game of isolation, discover, and death -- has also dropped to its lowest ever price, down from $10. It's a weird game of life on the sea and full of things like sentient icebergs, mutiny, betrayal, and cannibalism. We gave it four stars and you should check out the review for more. The follow-up, Sunless Skies, has just hit Steam's Early Access too.
That's it for this week's sales update. Let us know if you pick up any of the above, and have a good weekend!
