Android users always get to benefit from some pretty good sales in Google Play, and the same holds true for iOS users. When it comes to Blackberry we do usually get to see a sale or two here and there, but it’s never quite widespread. At least, Blackberry users never really get to see the same type of huge far-reaching sales that span across numerous apps and games. Well, until now that is.
There’s a pretty huge game sale going on right now in Blackberry World. To be more precise, a total of about 20 games or so have seen pretty significant price cuts. Some of the affected titles include Talisman Prologue, Super Hexagon, Cut the Rope, Another World, Raiden Legacy, Anomaly Korea, Canabalt HD and Death Worm (which we’ve reviewed here before). Of course, there are a lot more games than just that up for sale.
Unfortunately, the sale banner and promotion is currently active in Europe only. The games are still on sale here in the States, you’ll just have to hunt them down yourself as they’re not neatly categorized. There may even be more than what’s included in the list below, you’ll just have to load up your BB10 device and hit up Blackberry World to find out what else is there. Here are the games that we know are currently on sale:
- Super Stickman Golf
- Armored Defense II: Strategic Tower Game
- Super Hexagon
- Talisman Prologue
- Tank Hero: Laser Wars
- Cut the Rope: Experiments
- Amazing Breaker
- Pin Fall
- Twist Pilot
- Quell Reflect
- Another World
- Raiden Legacy
- Sleepwalker’s Journey HD
- Anomaly Korea
- Canabalt HD
- Death Worm
Most of them have dropped anywhere from 20% to 50% off their original price tags. A lot of them are even available for just a $1. There’s no mention of how long this sale is going to last, so if you’ve had your eye on any of the games listed we would recommend getting them as soon as possible at the sale price. Blackberry World is certainly not Steam, there’s no guarantee these games will ever go on sale again.
This is just in time for Blackberry Jam Asia. Long story short, it’s basically a developer conference where a pretty large group of folks get together and create a whole bucketful of apps and games for the BB10 platform. The general idea is that novice developers are offered expert advice and support directly from Blackberry. Many developers are encouraged to port their existing applications over to the platform, or create new ones entirely.
While the app scene may be a little lacking here and there, we certainly believe that there are plenty of games available for Blackberry 10 devices. Blackberry World has quite a selection ranging from fairly cheap to a little more expensive. What do you think of the game situation for Blackberry 10?
