Another monday, another workweek, and another silver lining. That's right, to help you get through the week, we've got another selection of discounted games for iOS.
We've picked out six this time, including a platformer, a flight sim, a brawler, and a Guitar Hero-type game, translated to touch devices. These were plucked for either being great value for money, or free and worth a try. Without further ado, please follow us into the gallery below.
1. Starborn Anarkist
Starborn Anarkist is a top-down spaceship arcade shooter game. It pins you up against waves of enemies and makes you earn your upgrades by collecting them as they fall off of destroyed enemy ships. It's not a phenomenal or innovative game, however for the price of $0.00 – it's worth a pickup, if you need some time burned.
(free, was $1.99)
2. aerofly FS – Flight Simulator
aerofly FS lets you pick from a few airplanes and go up for a tour of the skies. The game has several levels of realism and physics simulation, so it caters to an audience of various skills. If you are looking to do something more than just fly a plane, look elsewhere, as this game hasn't much to offer beyond that – the plane doesn't even explode if you crash it. However, if you are a flight simulator enthusiast, or you've been wanting to try one, you can grab this one for free now.
(free, was $3.99)
3. Out There
Out there is a space adventure game that has you maintaining your ship, exploring planets, upgrading abilities, etc. all while trying to reach a source of a mysterious signal. The game's interface is nothing that would astound you on screenshots, however the game itself delivers an addictive gameplay, a melancholic atmosphere, and an interesting and dark story with three different endings.

And while on the subject of "dark" – Limbo is a puzzle-platformer that doesn't really care much about presenting itself in a flashy way. Its world is drawn in black and white, and your protagonist is just a silhouette. However, that is not to say that the visual style of the game is not masterfully crafted, enticing, and even sometimes scary. The game is available for platforms from desktop, to consoles, to mobile and is a favorite of both fans and critics across all of them.
($2.99, was $4.99)
5. Captain America: The Winter Soldier - The Official Game
The latest Captain America game is supposed to be a sort of a tactical brawler, though it appears to be mostly just a brawler. Still, it's a Gameloft title that isn't half-bad and can now be downloaded for free.
(free, was $2.99)
In Guitar Hero style, Deemo has you "playing" the notes of a piano, by touching the display when and where the game shows you to. The songs vary from catchy j-pop, to some graceful modern instrumental pieces. If that peaks your curiosity, you can get the game for free now, so give it a whirl.
