Collapse! falls into the Windows Phone Red Stripe Deals once again

cOLLAPSE bAKING bUSINESS fATE OF THE pHARAOH Windows Phone Red Stripe Deals

After another week with no new Xbox release on Windows Phone, only a solid Xbox Red Stripe Deal could cure Achievement-hungry Windows Phone gamers’ woes. This week’s deal is a repeat though, having previously been on sale in 2012 and 2013. Collapse! from Game House has been marked down to 99 cents from $2.99. Exciting or no, it’s still a good choice if you’re looking for a good, simple puzzle game or just the easiest Achievements around. Descriptions and Store Links after the break!

The regular Red Stripe deals include three more games: Fate of the Pharaoh from K.I.D. d.o.o. (seriously, that is the publisher’s name) for 99 cents, Baker Business 2 from Living Code Labs for $1.49, and Strata from Graveck Interactive for 99 cents. The apps MyTextTwister Pro from KunRuch Creations and PC Remote Pro from PC Remote (?) are both on sale for 99 cents as well. 

Collapse (Windows Phone 7 and 8)

Regular price: $2.99 Sale price: $.99 Download size: 18 MB Store Link

Here’s one of those Xbox titles that should really cost 99 cents all the time, but whateva.

Collapse for Windows Phone

Collapse! is a simple puzzle game in which players slide blocks up and down to make colored matches. It’s a simple but fun puzzle mechanic. The sprawling Adventure mode offers plenty of twists on the standard gameplay, plus a simple character customization system. Progressing through Adventure also unlocks extra game types in Quick Play.

Now here’ why Achievement hunters will want to buy Collapse! posthaste. For better or worse, this game has the easiest Achievements of any Xbox Windows Phone game. You can seriously get them all in 20 minutes or less. You don’t have to beat the full campaign at all. Check out our full review for more details.

Fate of the Pharaoh (Windows Phone 8)

Regular price: $1.99 Sale price: $.99 Download size: 62 MB Store Link

Fate of the Pharaoh

Remember that animated movie Prince of Egypt? Me neither, but somebody made an unofficial game of it anyway. Just kidding.

This game is tough to make out from screenshots, but basically has you building little cities across ancient Egypt. Each level gives you specific objectives to complete, and you can replay them for different star ratings as well. Kind of like Farm Frenzy 2, I guess.

Features:

  • 44 amazing levels to pass
  • 9 riveting chapters
  • 9 desirable achievements to earn (non-Xbox)
  • Engaging in-game encyclopedia

Baker Business 2 (Windows Phone 8)

Regular price: $2.99 Sale price: $1.49 Download size: 35 MB Store Link

Baker Business 2

Living Code Labs has published nothing but variations of Baker Business 2 on Windows Phone: the regular version, Christmas, and Halloween. Those guys must love their baking!

Anyway, this is a casual but realistic simulation of owning an actual bakery shop. The graphics are pretty and the gameplay is easy to learn. At the very least, it will make you want to eat lots of cake and cookies.

Features:

  • Play all 30 levels and unlock over 130+ items including: cakes, cookies, pies, bread, coffee, tea, cocoa, soda pop and MUCH more!
  • Unlock perks and promotions that’ll make your bakery thrive!
  • Customize your bakery with different shelf choices and wallpaper
  • Learn basic business skills by managing money with easy to understand finance reports
  • Easy to play and suitable for all ages
  • Don’t worry about in-app purchases, you’ll get it all with this one time buy!

Strata (Windows Phone 7 and 8)

Regular price: $1.99 Sale price: $.99 Download size: 11 MB Store Link

Strata

Puzzle games don’t tend to be all that exciting, but at least Strata has a truly unique concept. Players must arrange colored ribbons in order to match the goal pattern. The patterns get more complex as the game goes on, which should prove nice and challenging. Our own George Ponder calls it addictive. Also, this one runs on Unity.

Features:

  • Hundreds of increasingly bigger and more challenging grids.
  • Option to Perfect each grid by completing it without pulling a ribbon back.
  • A simple, yet addicting game for any age.
  • Beautifully recorded sounds accompany your actions.

MyTextTwister Pro (Windows Phone 7 and 8)

Regular price: $1.99 Sale price: $.99 Download size: 1 MB Store Link

MyTextTwister Pro

Let’s face it, text messages and tweets are generally too easy to read.  You can fix that by typing worse and mixing up homophones, but that only goes so far. To really make your messages confusing, you need the text to be upside down and riddled with Ascii characters and stuff. That’s why TextTwister was invented. Just keep in mind the receiving device has to be capable of receiving your garbled message, otherwise it might come out looking normal!

Features:

  • Type in inverted, rounded, leet speak and many more..
  • Use 1200+ emoticons (emojis)
  • Add ASCII art decorations
  • SMS or email your created text directly from the app.
  • Post to social networking sites (configured on phone) directly from the app

PC Remote Pro (Windows Phone 7 and 8)

Regular price: $2.99 Sale price: $1.49 Download size: 3 MB Store Link

PC Remote Pro

Want a more practical app? PC Remote Pro lets you control a PC from the comfort of your phone, using it as a media remote and all kinds of fun things. The PC just needs to be running the companion app and you’re good to go. This one comes in a free version as well, but the paid version has more features so that’s the way to go.

Collapse!? Yuck! It's okay. Worth a buck. Could I use PC Remote to control my Surface RT with my WP? Anyone know?

Edit: FIRST! :-)

Rising Mos says:

Probably not. It has a companion application that needs to be installed and you cant install applications in RT.

Collapse is the easiest WP game. 200G in about 10 minutes lol!!

Collapse......Again!!! Déjà vu!

Rick Smits says:

:( No FF3. How long does the red stripe deal last?

Paul Acevedo says:

They're weekly. And a game that came out a month ago is not going to be a Red Stripe Deal. It took 8 months or so for Chaos Rings to go on sale.

IamDefiler says:

Strata FTW this week!

rocking23nf says:

this is where digital content from microsoft is a major fail, this game, should be a permenant 99 cents, not a sale of the week. Microsoft has the worst promotions department, its like they dont want me to buy digital content.

 

Paul Acevedo says:

Microsoft doesn't control the game's price though. Game House is the publisher, so they take the blame.

schlubadub says:

Microsoft aren't great at discounts, particularly on Xbox. Even after a couple of years I've seen a game at $99 and then all the DLC added another $60. The GOTY (game + all DLC) could be bought for $40 in a shop. Another year and it was $20 in store and they reduced the DLC to $40 in a "sale". Even their regular sales are woeful compared to retail. If only they were like the Steam sales... a man can dream!
