Microsoft kicks off ‘Red stripe’ weekly app deals for Windows Phone with King Oddball and runtastic Pro

Microsoft has a new trick up their sleeve to promote apps and games in the Windows Phone Store: weekly deals. Referred to as ‘red stripe’ offerings because the apps/games have a red boarder, users can purchase these games at a heavily discounted price. It should be a great way to move more inventory, so to speak, as well as highlight some top-quality apps or games in the store.

King Oddball

First up is King Oddball from 10tons Ltd, which we’ve reviewed previously. The game, like all of 10tons releases, features some fantastic artwork. And its quirky gameplay (you hurl rocks at tanks) always elicit a chuckle from us when playing. The game is normally $2.49 (and well worth it), but today you can grab it for just $0.99 (a 60% savings). Our advice? Go get it, it’s awesome. Windows Phone 8 only.

runtastic PRO

In the apps category we have runtastic PRO (see our earlier review), the super popular running companion app to help you record all of your exercise moments. That app normally goes for $4.99, which while expensive (relatively) if you use it every day it’s totally worth it. Today though, you can have it for $0.99, which is a massive sale. For Windows Phone 7.x and 8.

You can pick up King Oddball here for $0.99 and runtastic PRO for $0.99 here in the Store (there's also the free, non-pro version). Discount offer is for one week only, so get your purchases in early.

Thanks, frenzydude, for the heads up!

Yup and with Fitbit..they all play nice, which is why Nike can go to hell. Modern technology is great, it's silly to not make use of it for health reasons ;)

I just bought Runtastic pro last week and it works great with Myfitnesspal. As soon as you finish your workout it auto enters it into Myfitnesspal as long as you have them linked.

Edit:Contacted MS and the store is currently down.
 
Anyone else getting the c101a006 error from phone 8?  Also getting an error on windowsphone.com when I try to purchase.

Can't buy Runtastic for me.

"Oops...

Sorry, something went wrong and we aren't sure what happened. Please, try again later. "

Hopefully this move gathers ears, seems like a nice promotion, and it seems like they're in it for the long haul since they gave it a name.

King Oddball is awesome, I bought it at full price and it is worth every penny!!  Grab this today at sale price or you WILL regret it :)

red boarder?
 
So the game comes with it's own lodger then?  We probably need to know it's tenancy rights before investing.
