Pocket Sales: September 22th 201722 Sep 2017 2
Who wants some sales going into the weekend? Here's the best strategy games at a discount for your consideration. If you read very carefully you may be able to determine which of these is one of my favorite iPad games of all time.
One of the best mobile sports simulation games is currently free in both stores. Owen gave it five stars way back in the day and called it "quite possibly the best sports sim on mobile" so if you haven't picked it up and enjoy the genre get it for free while you can!
Osmos for iPad (iPad): $.99
Osmos is an older game but no less awesome for it. It's a real-time strategy game where you play as a mote looking to become a bigger mote via a eat-but-don't-get-eaten strategy. There are a bunch of different game modes to work through, and the visuals and audio are appealing. It's actually quite relaxing and the game is simply fantastic. You want this one, trust me.
Take to the seas as captain of your own ship, hire a crew of misfits and ne'er-do-wells, board and rob merchant vessels, battle and destroy rival captains, and raid shore-based settlements in Tempest. That's the plan in Tempest where you go a questing as a pirate captain. It's not the best pirate game that's ever been on mobile, but Sid Meier's Pirates has walked the plank of iOS 11 -- if you need something to fill the void, this might be it.
Short and sweet sales round-up for you today. Let us know if you pick up any of the above, and have a good weekend!
