First up is the recently released Nom Nation, an educational platformer with a charming pixel art style by Playerthree. Despite the underlying messages of the dangers of junk food and the importance of healthy eating, the game is an enjoyable puzzle platformer, and the educational elements are not too intrusive. The game has been reduced from £1.74 to £0.99. It is also playable in a browser here.
Also on sale is Card Shark by Midas. It's a game that features lots of cards, and comparatively few sharks. It's available for £0.99.
|I couldn't find a video for it. Does anyone really care?|
They have also cut the price of Galcon Labs, an absorbing puzzle/strategy game despite the basic visuals. It is now available for a mere £0.79
However, it is Laughing Jackal that have gone all-in with the reductions, slashing the prices of a large amount of their back catalogue. Firstly, old-school shoot-'em-up Duael Invaders is only £0.99
Sticking with the shmup genre, the Laughing Jackal space shooter bundle, including Ace Armstrong vs. The Alien Scumbags and Stellar Attack, is available for £1.74. Stellar Attack can also be bought individually for £0.99.
On the opposite end of the gaming spectrum, the Fighting Fantasy bundle, which comprises of Laughing Jackal's digital adaptations of The Talisman of Death and The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, has been reduced to £1.99.
Rhythm-action title Vibes also sees a heavy reduction, at £0.99.
And finally, the difficult-to-categorise Orbit is also available for just £0.99. This one is definitely worth it, as it is a game you will end up playing for hours, whether you want to or not.
That's it then. I strongly suggest getting involved, as these offers will be gone by next Wednesday. At 99p a pop it's worth a gamble, right?
