27 temporarily free and 96 on-sale apps and games for Monday

Welcome to Monday, everyone. It would seem that we have a huge roundup to start the week, with many games and icon packs that are currently on sale. Of course, this means I have more than a few standouts to share with everyone. First up is Star Wars: KOTOR, a fantastic RPG that plays great on mobile. Next is Slayaway Camp, one of my favorite puzzle games that's perfect for Halloween. We also have Rebuild, an enjoyable strategy game all about surviving the zombie apocalypse, another title that's perfect for All Hallows' Eve. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

Facebook also wants to give cloud gaming a try

Facebook also wants to give cloud gaming a try

Facebook has been invested in games for a long time (Farmville, anyone?), and even though the company's latest Oculus headset garnered heavy criticism for its Facebook login requirement, it's still pushing forward with new initiatives. Cloud gaming is apparently the next frontier for the company contributing to election interference, though Facebook is taking a different approach than its rivals.

25 temporarily free and 44 on-sale apps and games for Friday

Welcome to Friday, everyone. It would appear that today's sales concentrate primarily on games, and so I have a few standouts to share with everyone. First up is Death Worm, a delightful title all about eating everything and anything as a giant worm. Next is G30 - A Memory Maze, a minimal puzzler that tells a story through each puzzle. Last up is Legends of Andor – The King’s Secret, a deep and engaging board game adaptation that's easily worth the current asking price. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

FAR: Lone Sails is a gorgeous atmospheric adventure game, now available on Android

FAR: Lone Sails is a gorgeous atmospheric adventure game, now available on Android

If you've never heard of it, FAR: Lone Sails is a stylish adventure game that's existed on PC since 2018, and it's a well-reviewed title that offers a story-rich experience without displaying a word on the screen. Primarily I would describe the release as a relaxing game that offers gameplay similar to indies like Inside, where the goal is to always move to the right to advance the story, and there's a unique Howl's Moving Castle mechanic in this release that will see you control a massive vehicle as it sails across a dried-out seabed. Of course, roadblocks are expected as you explore this desert, and so you'll solve puzzles to continue your journey forward.

26 temporarily free and 27 on-sale apps and games for Wednesday

Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. While the middle of the week tends to be slower when it comes to interesting sales, I luckily still have a few standouts to share with everyone today. So if you're looking for a solid puzzler that stars an adorable hexapus (an octopus-like creature with six legs), Takoway is a fantastic pickup. If you prefer action-based shooting games, then Slaughter 3 is a well-reviewed choice. And if you're more interested in tangible hobbies, perhaps the stargazing app Stellarium Mobile PLUS is more your speed. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.

Stadia bundles and controllers are 20 percent off, starting at $55

Stadia controllers are notoriously expensive compared to comparable gamepads at $69, and they don't go on sale very often, either. But today, both the controller itself and the Premiere Edition kit that includes a controller and a Chromecast Ultra — usually $100 — are 20 percent off.

Dead Cells Legacy Update brings tons of content to the hit roguelike, now available on Android

Dead Cells Legacy Update brings tons of content to the hit roguelike, now available on Android

Dead Cells is an extremely popular roguelike that was ported to Android back in June (2020), though the mobile version is on a different upgrade path compared to the console or PC versions. This is why the Legacy Update landed on PC back in 2019 and is only now arriving on mobile. Luckily it would appear the wait was worth it since today's update brings with it a plethora of new features and content to the Android version that's all available for free if you already own the game.
