xbox live deal of the week

It’s another week with no new Xbox Windows Phone game. Things could be worse – most of us are probably too busy with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (and maybe even Throne Wars) to feel Achievement pangs. But a little Xbox Red Stripe Deal action can’t hurt either. This week’s deal is Carcassonne from Exozet Games for 99 cents. Carcassonne was part of a Black Friday sale in 2012 but has never been a Red Stripe Deal before.

The remaining Red Stripe Deals offer some fine gaming choices as well. There’s Action Bowl 2 from Atomic Bullfrog, Duudle from Visiarc, and Mini Dash from PlayCreek – all for 99 cents. Artifex Mundi’s high quality hidden object game Dark Arcana: the Carnival rings up at $1.49, and the handy app Lock Widgets from Windows Phone Hacker is 99 cents too.

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!

Since we didn’t get a new Xbox game for Windows Phone this week (though I finally worked through Temple Run 2), the Xbox Red Stripe Deal must once again sustain Achievement-minded Windows Phone gamers. This week’s deal title Mush from Angry Mango has been on sale thrice before, most recently in April of last year. But Mush is still a charming exclusive that somehow never escaped to iOS like most tend to do. Might as well pick it up for a buck if you haven’t already.

The non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals offer some fine game and app discounts as well. Artifex Mundi’s beautiful hidden-object adventure game Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart gets knocked down to $1.49, while graphically intense Skateboard Party 2 from Ratrod Studio and Kristanix Studio’s casual Fantastic Farm come in at 99 cents each. Meanwhile, non-game MusicStation from Raphaël Ruis is on sale for $2.99 and RaveIT Pro for 99 cents.

Hey all you penny-pinchers who decry the high prices that Square-Enix charges for its mobile role-playing games. This is your week. Thanks to the magic of the Xbox Red Stripe Deal, Chaos Rings, a game that has never gone on sale before, is now half off! $4.99 is certainly more palatable than $9.99, especially for one of the finest mobile RPGs in existence and single best games on Windows Phone.

The Red Stripe Deals continue to include six discounted games or apps per week in 2014 as opposed to last year’s three. This week’s haul consists mostly of games, with only a single app – Ipnos Software’s Relax Melodies Premium – on sale for 99 cents. The non-Xbox sale games include Chimpact from Yipee! Entertainment for 99 cents, Curling 3D from MaxNick (makers of Spider Jack) for $2.49, Iron Fist Boxing from Realtech VR for $1.49, and Shelter from Survivalist Games for 99 cents.

After all those December deals on Xbox Windows phone games, it’s only natural that the return to a single Xbox Red Stripe Deal of the Week would be less exciting. And so it is! This week’s Xbox sale game is alchemic puzzle game Doodle God from JoyBits. Doodle God last went on sale for 99 cents in July – here’s another chance to get it on the cheap.

If the repeated Xbox sale doesn’t light your fire, perhaps the remaining Red Stripe Deals will do it. Instead of two non-Xbox deals, we have five this time – all Windows Phone 7 and 8 compatible. Games Drive Hard Taxi from JuJu-Apps, Jack Hale from Igor Maliukh, and Toilet People from Muki Software are on sale for 99 cents. Productivity apps Chronos Calendar and Yivosoft Recorder also get discounts. Head past the break for descriptions, pictures, and Store links!

Save on Flight Control Rocket, An Alien with a Magnet, and Avirall Time Suite this week with Microsoft's Red Stripe Deal. 

With the appearance of Asphalt 8 as a non-Xbox title, some Windows Phone Xbox fans remain in shock. What better way to cure your ills than with an Xbox game that’s never gone on sale before? That’s exactly what we get with this week’s Xbox Red Stripe Deal: Flight Control Rocket from Electronic Arts. Not bad!

The non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals include indie game An Alien with a Magnet from Rejected Games and stopwatch/productivity app Avirall Time Suite from Pilcrow App Dev. Both cost 99 cents this week. Head past the break for descriptions and Store links!

Time was that Microsoft notified us of every Red Stripe Deal (then called the Xbox Live Deal of the Week) in advance. Sadly they stopped doing so many moons ago, but that hasn’t stopped our inquisitive nature. Today I was sniffing around all Wolverine-like and caught wind of tomorrow’s deals through unofficial channels – a day ahead of schedule.

The Xbox Red Stripe Deal is Rocket Riot from Codeglue, on sale for $1.99. Brain Seal’s indie RPG Dark Quest and the popular Tweet It! App from My Amazing Big Fork are both 99 cents. Head past the break for screenshots and Store links!

With no new Xbox release for Windows Phone this week, gamers in search of a fix will have to look to the Xbox Red Stripe Deal for their entertainment. The latest deal game is Gameloft’s Dark Knight Rises for Windows Phone 8. It’s on sale for $2.99, as it also was back in June. If you’re looking for a long and meaty game, it should fit the bill.

Non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals include the phenomenal strategy game Armed from Sickhead Games for 99 cents, plus the popular app Weave News Reader for $3.99. We’ve got details and Store links after the break.

It’s another good week for Xbox Windows Phone 8 gamers with yesterday’s release of Tetris Blitz. But more games are always better, and Windows Phone 7 users need stuff to play too. So perhaps the Xbox Red Stripe Deal will do the trick. It’s a blast from the past with iBlast Moki from Godzilabs going on sale for 99 cents. iBlast Moki has only been on sale once before, way back in October 2011, so this will be many deal hunters’ first chance to get it on the cheap.

In non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals news, Anshar Studios’ popular puzzle game The Path of Kara (totally not supposed to sound like Path of Korra) is down to a buck as well. Meanwhile, Rise Up Games’ photography app ProShot lens for Windows Phone 8 is the same price. Details and Store links after the break.

I wasn’t too thrilled with last week’s Xbox Red Stripe Deal, but this week’s sale title is a much more solid game. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I is on sale for $1.99, down from $4.99. This marks the fourth time it’s been on sale, but the last time was back in November so a lot of Windows Phone newcomers probably missed it.

The non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals are pretty good too. The hidden object game Flux Family Secrets from Big Fish Games is on sale for 99 cents. If you like the genre, consider it a must-buy. And JDB Pocketware’s calendar/productivity app AppoinTile is 99 cents as well. Details and Store links after the break!

Last week’s Xbox Red Stripe Deal knocked it out of the park by offering Modern Combat 4 – a game that had never been on sale before – at a significant discount. But we can’t expect a new game to go on sale every week… Not if we don’t want our hearts broken. The latest discounted Xbox Windows Phone game has been on sale twice before, most recently in June. Yep, UberGeekGames’ BulletAsylum is 99 cents once again. We’ll try to contain our enthusiasm.

Meanwhile, the non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals are actually a lot more exciting. Indie Minecraft clone Discovery from Noowanda (?) is only 99 cents, which should please the construction crowd. And all three versions of Garmin’s GPS app Navigon (USA, Europe, and Australia) are half off as well. Descriptions and Store links after the break.

This has been a happy week for mobile Xbox gamers. Gameloft published the highly anticipated Six-Guns for Windows Phone 8, and it’s a free game to boot. But more is always better where games are concerned.

The latest Xbox Red Stripe Deal has you covered then, gamers. Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4 is one sale for $2.99, more than half off the regular price. It’s a killer Windows Phone 8 game that has never been on sale before. Call of Duty and first-person shooter fans won’t want to miss it.

Rounding out the Red Stripe Deals are popular puzzle game Crazy Machines Golden Gears from Viva Media and finance management app myMoneyBook from Tiziano Cacioppolini, both on sale for $1.49. Head past the break for details and Store links.

It’s another sad week with no new Xbox Windows Phone game release – Tetris Blitz never showed up yesterday. As such, the Xbox Red Stripe Deal must provide hungry Windows Phone gamers with sustenance. Well, this week’s deal game has gone on twice sale before, but more than a year ago and never for as cheap. Physics puzzler Implode from IUGO is now on sale for 99 cents, down from $2.99. Probably what it should cost all the time, but who are we to judge?

Rounding out this week’s Red Stripe Deals are Darts Arena Online from E-Bouma and Week View 8, a calendar app from Hannes Biribauer. Both are on sale for 99 cents. Descriptions, free candy, and store links after the break!

Gameloft’s UNO & Friends launched earlier this month. Since then, two weeks have gone by with no new Xbox Windows Phone release (unless we count Chaos Rings, which we’ll get to in another article). Once again, the Xbox Red Stripe Deal is left to pick up the slack.

This week’s sale game can’t even begin to match the quality of last week’s Rayman Jungle Run sale, but it should still please Achievement hungry bargain shoppers. Collapse! from Game House is on sale for 99 cents. It went on sale back in February 2012, but at the higher $1.99 price point.

Since we had no new Xbox Windows Phone release this week, the Xbox Red Stripe Deal is left to pick up the slack. And for once, it doesn’t disappoint! Yes, this week a game that HAS NEVER BEEN ON SALE BEFORE goes on sale. That doesn’t happen too often. What’s more, it’s one of the best games available!

Yes, Rayman Jungle Run from Ubisoft is the Xbox game on sale this week. What Windows Phone 8 gamer could resist it for only 99 cents? Rounding out the Red Stripe Deals are an indie game called 2150 A.D. from Lumosoft for 99 cents and the Twitter app Rowi from Hidden Pineapple for $1.49.

Practically everybody who games on Windows Phone 8 is either anxiously awaiting today’s release of Halo: Spartan Assault (carrier issues notwithstanding) or knee-deep in last week’s release of Order & Chaos Online (don’t miss our Beginner’s Guide!). But some players are still stuck on Windows Phone 7 or just won’t pay seven bucks for a game, and those poor souls need stuff to play too. Won’t the Xbox Red Stripe Deal of the Week come to their rescue?

Sure, I guess! This week’s Xbox sale game is a repeat as usual, having gone on sale back in October last year. geoDefense Swarm from Critical Thought Games is on sale for 99 cents, down from $2.99. The indie Red Stripe game deal is 10tons’ Tennis in the Face for $1.49. In the non-game zone we have a news reader app called Collector from Squallstar Studio, on sale for 99 cents.

Windows Phone 8 users received an awesome new Xbox release this week: Order & Chaos Online, officially ending the recent release drought. But Windows Phone 7 gamers still need stuff to play, and some people just want games on the cheap. Namco Bandai and Firemint’s Flight Control will have to do, as it makes its second appearance as the Xbox Red Stripe Deal this week. Not the most exciting game, but the sale price of a dollar is fair!

In non-Xbox Red Stripe Deal territory, Sketch Taxi is a fun old school game on sale for a dollar as well. The GPS Voice Navigation app rings up at $3.49. Details and store links after the break.

It’s a decent week for Xbox gaming deals, with the EA July Special marking six Windows Phone games down and the Xbox 360 Ultimate Game Sale slashing prices like crazy. But we could still use an Xbox Windows Phone Red Stripe Deal, and that’s just what we get. Doodle God from JoyBits is the latest Xbox title to go on sale. Not the most exciting game, but you can get it for 99 cents and knock its Achievements out in no time.

As for the non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals, Rubicon’s excellent indie strategy title Great Big War Game rings up for 99 cents this week as well. Fabulously wealthy Windows Phone users will enjoy the Mobitee GPS Golf app, on sale for the humble price of $10.99. Descriptions and store links after the break!

With no new Xbox game release yesterday, it’s up to the Xbox Red Stripe Deal of the Week to keep players busy. Luckily it’s a good one, though it did go on sale for the same price back in April. I speak of Gerbil Physics, the cutest physics game in creation, from indie developer Pencel Games. Gamers who missed it the first time around have another chance to blow up gerbils on the cheap, which I believe is something we can all get behind.

Following on Gerbil Physics’ heels are the regular Red Stripe Deals. LunarX from InProcessout is a unique indie sci-fi game on sale for $1.49. For the same price, HD Scanner from Code Nomads lets you make high resolution document scans with your phone’s camera.
