Apple promotes Big Games, Great Prices on the App Store

If you’re one to browse the App Store via iTunes or from your iDevice, it’s likely you’ve come across previous Apple lists that promote certain apps/games, like the Awesome iOS 4 apps and The Best Games You’ve Never Played roundups. Well Apple has released a new one and it’s called “Big Games, Great Prices”. This list of games actually coincides with the recent fire sale of many top notch titles that saw prices drops in the $0.99 – $2.99 range. Of the 50 being included, some of the more notables include:

A good number of these games are considered must-haves, especially if you dig that particular genre. I highly recommend you take a look and see which you’d like to scoop up at the reduced price. You can find the “Big Games, Great Prices” roundup on the App Store here .

Apple: Free on the App Store list

Recently, Apple has been periodically featuring various App Roundups on the App Store, ones that include The Best Games You’ve Never Played and Awesome iOS 4 Apps. Their latest effort focuses on Free apps and it’s called Free on the App Store. Aside from the subcategories New & Noteworthy and Our Favorites, you’ll also find an interesting section dubbed Try Before You Buy. These are essentially Lite versions of paid apps and are hand picked by the Apple Staff. There are currently 98 on the list and it includes both games and non-game apps. Here are a few that you’ll find:

These suggestions made by Apple are actually quite good, as they cover a wide range of apps for nearly every occasion. Take a look. You can may find some new apps & games to add to your app collection. The Free on the App Store list can be found on iTunes here. On your iDevice, it’s under Feature–>New within the App Store app.

Apple: The Best Games You’ve Never Played

Hot on the heels of the iPhone 4 launch, Apple is showcasing a brand new feature page on iTunes dubbed “The Best Games You’ve Never Played“. Presumably aimed at brand new iPhone 4 owners/App Store users (or those who who don’t follow the games section too closely), the list includes more obscure titles like Deadball Specialist, Dungeon Scroll, PonPonPanic and Warblade. Of course, these types of roundups can be very subjective, but it does appear that Apple has done a pretty good job with its selection. Admittedly, I have yet to personally try all 50 games, though here are 10 that I have played and thoroughly enjoyed:

With over 30,000 games at the App Store, it likely wasn’t an easy task for Apple to come up with “only” 50 titles. Regardless, here’s the App Store link to the Best Games You’ve Never Played.
