[Update: Now $0.99, 80% Off] Lara Croft GO Is 60% Off On The Play Store, Down To $1.99 From $4.99 In Many Countries

To celebrate the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox consoles, Square Enix is discounting its Lara Croft GO game by 60% on the Play Store. It's a flash sale though, so you might want to hurry and grab it if the game seemed appealing to you or if you liked its spiritual predecessor Hitman GO.

Lara Croft GO is a turn-based puzzle adventure, where you play your turn moving your character along predefined paths, then wait for your opponents to make their move. There isn't a lot of urgency in the game, so you can take your time exploring the 75 different levels and figuring out the best way to finish them, all while listening to a nice soundtrack and enjoying the smooth animations and low-poly-like designs.

[Deal Alert] Thomas Was Alone Is Down To $0.20 In Many Countries ($0.99 Globally)

Thomas Was Alone isn't your typical platformer. The game immerses you in its world and forges an emotional bond between you and a rectangle. Yes, a rectangle. As you take charge of the different colorful geometric shapes inside the game, you embark on a journey through more than 100 levels (with 20 levels from the Benjamin's Flight expansion) that's beautifully narrated and deeply sentimental.

When Thomas Was Alone first launched on Android in 2014, it cost about $3.99, but the game has had its price dip on and off since then. Today sees one of its lowest discounts ever, with the price falling to $0.20 in the US.

Activision Re-releases 'Call Of Duty Black Ops Zombies' Under A New Play Store Listing, Past Purchases Be Damned

Merry Christmas everyone! This jolly message comes to you courtesy of your beloved Activision Publishing developer who has decided to grab a few bucks from your stockings because you've been a bad kid this year and you deserve to be punished for liking Zombie games and causing virtual mayhem.

For some reason, Activision has decided to re-release Call Of Duty: Black Ops Zombies under a new listing on the Play Store. The first-person shooter that puts you at the line of defense against hordes of zombies dates back to 2012 when Liam called it "interesting" in his review. It has been stagnating on the Play Store with no updates since December 2013 with plenty of reviewers complaining about compatibility, bugs, and overall sluggishness.

A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build But You Can Still Give It Your Best Shot

There's nothing more heartwarming in the middle of a snowy winter than getting together with your family or friends to build a snowman. You can always count on the experience to throw you into a time machine and make you feel childish and innocent again. And the snow fights, man the snow fights! The joy of landing a big compact snowball smack in the middle of your target! Is there anything better?

But I digress. Snowy seasons aren't prevalent all year round in every corner of the world, so if you want to relive that pure joy while still enjoying a brain teasing game, A Good Snowman should fit the bill.

Nearly Three Years Later, Crescent Moon Games Releases Sequel To Epic Aralon RPG - $5, No In-App Purchases

Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD, is one of the most ambitious 3D mobile RPGs in memory. It also had nary an in-app purchase, something that has become sadly uncommon in this day and age of freemium. After two-and-a-half years, Crescent Moon Games has released the sequel. Meet Aralon: Forge and Flame.

Visuals look very substantially improved from the original, which is probably to be expected given how far mobile graphics have come since early 2013. The game promises a "massive" world to explore, three races and four classes to choose from, real-time shadows, first and third-person views, and dynamic day and night cycles.

[Deal Alert] The Excellent 'This War Of Mine' Game Comes To Phones, Celebrates With A 50% Discount To $6.99 In Many Countries

Do you want to bust through doors, fire dozens of machine guns, and kill all the baddies? Then This War of Mine isn't what you're looking for. War heroes aren't just the fighters, they're also the survivors who find themselves thrown into a bleak world and have to scrape for meat, find a shelter, protect each other, and just try to get through each day unharmed and alive. That's the aspect of war that This War of Mine taps into, and it does so with surprising depth and sensibility for a "game". Our own Michael was very impressed when he reviewed it.

[Deal Alert] Deep Dungeons Of Doom Is Only $0.10 On The Play Store, And Heavily Discounted In Many Countries

Deep Dungeon of Doom usually costs $3.99. That's not a bad price to pay for a fun side-scrolling dungeon crawler with different protagonists — crusader, witch, and mercenary — and plenty of levels that throw you back to the good'ol times of gaming with 8-bit graphics and nostalgic sound effects. It's even much more acceptable after the game was updated to remove all in-app purchases. Now all gold has to be earned in order to buy upgrades and all revive tokens have to be won fair and square.

Framed From Noodlecake Studios Is A Gritty Comic-Style Puzzler Where You Control The Story

There was a heist (presumably) and you're on the run. Will you be caught or get away scot-free? That's entirely dependent on how you arrange events in Framed. This game looks incredibly polished and I can't say I've ever seen anything like it.

Sparkle 3 Genesis Adds Some Much-Needed Structure To The 'Float Around And Eat Stuff' Genre

The Sparkle series of games use a 2D layout and a "zen" approach, putting players in the role of a tiny plankton-like creature as it eats, grows, and evolves. The third game steps up the design of both the sea life and the background until it looks like you're playing in a catastrophic oil spill comprised entirely of tie-dye. Eat, grow, and try not to be eaten in return as you swim through the levels.

There's a dedicated "amoeba" sub-genre out there (it works pretty well on touchscreens) but Sparkle 3 Genesis adds some much-needed complexity. Different food sources will make your creature grow in different ways, introducing a crafting element, and twelve different levels and intermittent screen-filling bosses lend structure to an other wise nebulous experience.
