Microsoft has kickstarted the Red Stripe Deals on apps and games from the Windows Store just like it does it for Windows Phone. Here are the discounted Windows 8 apps and games for this week.
The Red Stripe Deals on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows RT apps and games from the Windows Store is now available for users and Microsoft will be publishing each week usually three of them – one Xbox game, one indie game, and one top-rated app.
But we’re also reaching out to Windows 8 developers to contact us and inform them of their discounts, if some. This way, we will have more discounted games and apps to choose from the Windows Store
Original Price: $4.99. Sale price: $2.49
There seems to be a problem with this discount because a lot of people still see the previous five dollars price and I can confirm this, as well. Guys, do fix it as soon as possible, because Reckless Racing Ultimate is one Windows 8 racing game we don’t want to miss!
Brain training apps on Windows 8 are pretty awesome as you get to keep your memory and logic fit. Einstein Brain Trainer HD comes with 30 levels to stimulate your brain’s activity, from the most easy to hard levels.
Joining Hands 2 sequel builds on the success of the first version and comes with more than 140 fun and challenging levels where you will play with 8 kinds of adorable Peablin characters.
Let’s hope that future Red Stripe Deals will include free apps and games from the Windows Store, as well. For now, I am sure that there are developers who have discounted their apps, so feel free to reach out.
