Tydlig ($2.99, now $1.99)

Tydlig is a calculator focused on getting rid of “the legacy limitations of old devices” – which means a completely fresh approach. The app might be overkill for someone who uses their iPhone calculator for little more than working out the bill, but if numbers are your thing then you should definitely check it out. Tydlig introduces a few brand new ideas like responsive results (edit your workings to see updated answers) and an infinite scrolling canvas.


DotEmu’s Retro Summer Sale

If you spent the 80s playing video games and even if you didn’t (in fact, especially if you didn’t) it’s time to catch up on your retro gaming for cheap with DotEmu’s Summer Sale. Seven titles have been reduced to $0.99, including classics like Double Dragon Trilogy and Little Big Adventure.


Star Trek Trexels ($2.99, now free)

It’s time to take charge of your own starship in this Star Trek-themed spaceship management simulator. Presented in delightfully pixellated 8-bit glory, Star Trek Trexels allows you to boldly follow in the footsteps of your favourite TV stars in a voyage across the galaxy. Discover new worlds, upgrade your ship, pick a crew and set off on an adventure alongside classic characters and technology from all over the Star Trek universe.

Atom Run ($2.99, now free)

Atom Run is currently Apple’s app of the week, and that means it sheds its $2.99 price tag for a full seven days. Step into a retro-futuristic universe and take control of a sophisticated robotic prototype to jump, run and defeat anything that stands in your path. The whole thing hints strongly toward classic 3D Realms titles like Duke Nukem, so check it out if that’s your thing.

True Skate ($1.99, now free)

True Skate is probably the best skating game on the App Store. The game takes the premise of a toy finger skateboard and applies it to the iOS formula. The game is incredibly responsive, making it particularly difficult to pull off tricks competently until you’ve learned the ropes. This game is well worth its usual $2 price tag, and it’s a steal for free!

The King of Fighters ’97 ($3.99, now $0.99)

SNK’s answer to Capcom’s Street Fighter, The King of Fighters has been a mainstay of the beat ’em up genre in arcades and on home consoles like the Neo Geo for 20 glorious years. Celebrate this weekend with a 20th anniversary price on KoF ’97, arguably one of the franchise’s best iterations.


EMPIRE: The Deck Building Strategy Game [No Longer Available]

Reduced from $2.99, EMPIRE is a deck-building trading card game that has resonated well with fans of the genre. The game takes a “quick to learn tough to master” approach to getting you hooked, with three unique emperors to play each offering something different in terms of ability. Manage your deck and pull out the right cards at the right time to master the grid-based combat system.

That’s all the sales for this week, check back next week for even more offers.
