Apps Sales For January 31, 2013: Shadowgun, Samurai II, Reddit News, And More

When it comes to buying apps, I try to wait until a sale comes along. I usually end up buying things on a whim most of the time anyway, but I try to wait – especially for games and such that may be outside of who much I'm willing to spend on one app. If you're also the type who waits for a good sale to roll around, some pretty decent price drops just hit the Play Store sales floor.

Because No Games Are Better Than Crappy Games: Zeboyd Calls It Quits On Android

Though you may not have heard of them, Zeboyd Games is something of a darling in the world of indie gaming. After scoring hits with the quirky neo-retro RPGs Cthulhu Saves The World and Breath Of Death VII, the two-man studio made it big by landing a contract with webcomic giant Penny Arcade. The third game in the series, On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness III, abandoned the 3D style of the previous entries for a sprite-based, pixelated throwback to 16-bit gaming goodness.

[New Game] Old School Defense Is The Best Tower Defense Game Based On A Will Ferrell Movie You'll See Today

Ready for the most incongruous mobile game since Antz Racing hit the Game Boy Color? The latest release from Big Blue Bubble is a fairly standard entry in the tower defense genre, inexplicably licensed from the 10-year-old raunchy comedy movie Old School. Yes, really. Old School Defense tasks the player with defending the frat house from party crashers, including cops, jocks, nerds, and hippies. You use the various pledges from the movie as defense turrets, leveling them up as the round progresses.

Big Blue Bubble has become notable for solid games like Burn The Rope, but given the somewhat limited appeal of this particular title, they went to AppBackr (it's exactly what it sounds like: Kickstarter for mobile apps) to garner support.
