For all gaming fans out there, as iPadBoardGames continues to expand and strive to add value to our readers, we are officially kickstarting a new series of posts called ‘Game All Day’, where we will feature the latest iOS games that have either dropped prices, are currently on sale, or have become completely free!
The featured games going forward for this series may reach beyond solely being board games related, as there are only so many board games that go on sale or become free over a certain time frame, and we’d hate to have you guys miss out on some of the other great games on offer when the opportunities arise!
As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on these new initiatives, so be sure to let us know in the comments below or send us an email on any ideas and suggestions that you may have.
On another note, we’d like to highlight that there’s just a little over 2 weeks left before the results of our first monthly iOS games giveaway, so if you haven’t signed up yet, be sure to check out the details here and join in on the fun!
Without further ado, here is a list of iOS games that have become free or with price drops:
In celebration of Button Mash Games Inc’s release of its new game, Forbidden Desert, they have placed their previously highly successful game Forbidden Island on sale! For those who haven’t heard of the game before, we’ve written a review for the game back in 2011 – be sure to check it out here!
The Mesh is a beautifully created puzzle game that provides plenty of challenging tasks to exercise your brain, while letting you enjoy the game in a stress-free manner (i.e. without any time pressure). This game is especially fun for those that love crunching at number puzzles!
For those that have watched and enjoyed ‘The Martian’ movie, its official iOS game has been now made free for those to try their hand at helping Mark Watney survive through his adventures while being stranded in Mars! The game’s interactions uses a storytelling format, hence may be suitable for those that like interactive fiction-type games.
Talisman is another great game that we have written a full review for back in 2014 – and you can check it out here.
Old school gamers will love this game and its fantastic implementation, as the game developers have gone to great lengths to cater to small details, having recreated the plastic minis of the physical board game with a fully painted look. It’s been said that Talisman is one of the most over-produced beer-n-pretzel games to date, hence definitely worth checking out!
Developed in 2013, Alchemists is a board game where you play to gain the highest number of points through the creation of potions. The game can be played with up to 4 players (either humans or AI), and is suitable for both adults and children alike. There is an interactive tutorial available to get you up to speed as the play style somewhat differs from other traditional board games, although the game itself is relatively simple – where players need to collect different ingredients to perform their magic spells and conjure potions.
And that’s it for the initiation of ‘Game All Day’ – time to get out there and play to your heart’s content!
