It's Friday, which means the weekend – and thus, downtime (for many people, anyway) – is only a few hours away. What better way to kick off the next couple of non-work days than with some great games for a fraction of the price? I submit that such a thing does not exist.

We've stumbled across several good deals this morning, including a couple of really fantastic titles for merely a buck. Let's get to it!

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour

Normally $6.99, you can get your hands on Gameloft's newest first-person shooter for a measly $0.99 for a limited time. There's no word on exactly how limited that time could be, so it's probably best that you buy sooner, rather than later.

Hunters: Episode One

If top-down shoot-em-ups are your thing, then Hunters: Episode One may better fit the bill. This one's down to $0.99 from $5, but it's worth noting that it does have in-app purchases if you wish to proceed at and advanced pace. With that said, these micropayments aren't necessary to make the game playable (or fun), so it's up to you whether having IAPs in a paid app is enough to skip it altogether.

Grand Theft Auto III

Or maybe you're a throwback gamer. If stealing cars and thuggin' it up on the streets are just fond memories from your childhood, then there's no better time to relive the past. GTAIII is available for a buck-ninety-nine today, down for the normal $4.99 price tag.


Let's just call this section honorable mention. Games that are on sale, but the deals just aren't as good as the three listed above.

  • Jet Set Radio – Down to $2.99 from $4.99, JSR is a classic game of skatin', skitchin', and taggin'.
  • Sonic CD – It may not be the latest in the Sonic saga, but for the time being, you can live life as a the famous blue hedgehog for $2.99 instead of $4.99.
  • Total War Battles – fulfill your lifelong dream of being a Shogun for the low, low price of $1.99 (normally $4.99).

So there you go – game deals for your Friday. Have fun.

    Finally xD

  • http://www.baronsofbullshit.com/ seriosbrad

    Picked up MC4 and GTA III thanks.

  • Matthew Fry

    Ooooooooh well not buying JSR. Was about to but 15/19 Nexus 10 reviews are 1 star. No thanks. I have lots of games from major publishers that don't work already thanks.

    Definitely picked up MC 4 finally. Thanks, AP!

    • PhilNelwyn

      Is an AP staff member who thanks AP suffering from split personality? ;-)

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        I have a lot of love to give.

  • Steve Green

    Does this MC4 have IAP or not?
    Please mention that sort of thing in reviews, lots of people like me will not buy games that have IAP.

      • Steve Green

        So does this game have IAP or not?

        GTA3 is for throwback gamers? What are you 12?

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          I'm not going to answer you. I already gave you the link to the review. Now you can spend 1 minute to look through it and maybe search for the word "IAP" or you can spend it writing another comment.

          And... what? I didn't write this post, why are you even addressing me about GTA3? Even if I did - GTA III was released in 2001. That's 12 years ago, which in the gaming world qualifies as throwback. How that makes Cameron 12 is beyond me.

            Don't you realise? There's a TROLL! TROLL IN THE DUNGEONS!

            Instead of being dickish and posting a mindless, long rant, you could have just said yes or no.

  • Simon Belmont

    Grabbed Modern Combat 4. Been meaning to get that for a while.

    Wow. Nearly 2GB download.

    I already have GTA3 and have been unable to play it since I flashed CM10 on my GS3. :(

  • GraveUypo

    wow, great games and video games, too

    Thought about picking up Hunters, and I see a 1 star review that it doesn't work on the Nexus 4. Then thought about GTA3 and see a lot of complaints about the additional downloads not working... Windows has more hardware variance and less compatibility issues. They might be messing everything else up right now, but it's obvious why DirectX won over OpenGL.

    • FrillArtist

      Dude. It works fine on Nexus 4. Nothing to complain about. I know. I have one. People that things work fine for don't usually leave reviews anyway.

    fun to have a mindless shooter every now and then and it saves me a lot of money because my need to play cod is easily filled for a year with each of these :P
