App Sale: Graphic puzzler FRAMED gets price slash

App Sale: Graphic puzzler FRAMED gets price slash

Aug 15, 2017

Every now and then, we come across a game that grabs a hold of us.

FRAMED is one of those. It’s an interesting, comic-like game that we loved, and, coincidentally, is also on sale right now.

To play it is to get engrossed in it. Every “page” comes together like a graphic novel, except that the middle frames are jumbled up; the idea is to shift said middle images around in such a way that a coherent story is formed, and one gets from point A — the first frame — to point B — the culmination for that page.

And on to the next. And so on.

In any case, FRAMED can be had right now for $0.12. Yep, 12 cents… down from its regular price of $2.99

Not bad.

If you’re wondering why we love it, check our review from way back when.

By the way, the game has a sequel too, aptly named FRAMED 2.

Five Noodlecake titles are on sale for a limited time

Five Noodlecake titles are on sale for a limited time

Jul 30, 2017


This is one of those few times when we actually reported good news when we should have reported GREAT news!

Noodlecake is quite the cross-platform fountain, and several of our favorite games have the studio’s imprint. Right now, it’s possible to pick up a few of those games at a steep discount.

We did notice that two well-regarded Noodlecake titles — realMyst and follow-up Riven — were deeply discounted. Delightfully, we subsequently learned that there are few more titles to add to the list.

And yes, the discounts are deep all the way round:

Wayward Souls
Regularly $6.99; on sale for $0.99.

Ah this one is all about platforming adventure though procedurally generated levels.

Lumino City
Regularly $4.99; on sale for $0.99.

An award-winning graphical feast that packs in an enviable dose of adventure.

Last Horizon
Regularly $2.99; on sale for $0.99.

A genteel yet fun planet-hopping caper that is easy on the eyes.

These are all in addition to the previously mentioned Riven and realMyst. Potentially, it adds up to more than $20 in savings.
Not bad.

Reality check: this sale ends on Tuesday. Get to gettin’!

PC Port realMyst (along with sequel Riven) is on sale!

PC Port realMyst (along with sequel Riven) is on sale!

Jul 27, 2017

We try to be circumspect with our proclamations, but we feel it is fairly safe to say that Myst is an iconic game. It’s had plenty of valiant imitators, but the official Android port — realMyst — was a fun iteration that brings the desktop experience alive via Google Play.

And now, realMyst is on sale. At a sharp discount: $0.99.

As in 99 cents.

As in discounted from its regular price of $6.99.

Not that y’all really need to be sold on this one.. great graphics, first-person gameplay and a whole hos of puzzles to keep folks on their mobile gaming feet.

We got along just fine with this one when we took it for a gander earlier this year; we figure you just might like the sequel Riven, which (gasp!) is also on sale for $0.99, down from its regular price $3.99.

Check out the trailer to both games below, as well as our review of realMyst.
