Recently announced app sales from Firemint and Gameloft highlight the choices, in addition to the previously reported on sale from Electronic Arts, which is also the publisher for Firemint.
Real Racing series highlights Firemint's 99-cent app sale
The Real Racing series ranks near the top of the iOS racing pantheon. The iPhone versions and their HD brethren on the iPad feature top rank graphics, smooth animation, and deep career mode gameplay. Even the free version focused on the Volkswagen GTI series is fun to play.
All the Real Racing games are available for 99 cents as part of Firemint's holiday app sale. This includes Real Racing 2 HD for the iPad, which is the first time that game has been available for only 99 cents. Racing fans on the iOS platform need to strike quickly!
Flight Control HD as well as SPY mouse HD highlight the rest of Firemint's other apps on-sale.
Gameloft's Holiday app sale
There are quite a few gems in Gameloft's 99-cent app sale, and this time the sale even includes the Mac App Store as well as iOS. Considering the game company's propensity to go overboard with the freemium gaming model, getting their apps for almost free is actually a better deal.
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline is a great action racing game definitely worth its 99-cent sale price for both iOS and the Mac. Fans of the Grand Theft Auto series need to check out Gangstar Rio: City of Saints, currently available for 99 cents.
No matter a Columbus gamer's favored genre, there's little doubt holiday deals are afoot with the plethora of sales currently at the iTunes App Store.
