Farm Frenzy 2, Joining Hands 2 and Fuse make up this week's Red Stripe Deals

It's almost Black Friday in the US and the festive season of sales are commencing, but that hasn't prevented folk waiting eagerly for the weekly Red Stripe Deals from Microsoft. This week we have Farm Frenzy 2, Fuse, and Joining Hands 2. If you've been holding off on one of these titles or wish to bag a bargain, now's your chance.

Farm Frenzy 2

Farm Frenzy 2

Farm Frenzy 2 isn't shy to when it comes to deals as the Xbox Live title was in a previous listing. If you're not familiar with the title, we're looking at a time management game, much like Sally's Salon. Players are tasked with keeping the animals alive, produce a number of resources and other products. It's rather addictive gameplay and well worth checking out.

You can download Farm Frenzy 2 from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99 (Windows Phone 7 and 8).



Fuse is a popular newsreader app on Windows Phone, developed by Rudy Huyn. The app sports unique themes, including Ribbon, Square and Ipsum, which give a highly stylized view of the news from various websites and is considered by many to be one of the nicest looking apps around. Should you have a number of sources available you wish to enjoy while on the move, this is the app for you.

You can download Fuse from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99 (Windows Phone 7 and 8).

Holding Hands 2

Joining Hands 2

The last entry in this week's Red Stripe Deals is Joining Hands 2, an indie title by the developer 10tons. Joining Hands 2 is a whimsical puzzle game. The player is tasked with completing puzzles by joining the hands of little creatures called Peablins. The gameplay is rather straightforward, you drag and drop them from cell to cell in order to have them all holding hands.

​If you've not tried a 10tons game before, we recommend checking all their titles out - including Joining Hands 2. Some features of Joining Hands 2:

  • More than 140 fun and challenging levels
  • Eight kinds of adorable Peablin characters
  • Unlimited hint system: Never get stuck
  • Fun for all ages: No violence, no time limits, no pressure
  • Great for child and parent cooperative puzzling
  • Cute graphics and joyful soundtrack
  • Ten achievements

You can download Joining Hands 2 from the Windows Phone Store for $1.49 (Windows Phone 8 only).

  • Temple Run 2?????
  • PvZ 2...?
  • Subway surfers
  • Well both the games you guys mentioned were typically not announced whereas Temple run 2 was shown WITH XBL SUPPORT! :D
    By the way, just found out that GALACTIC REGIN is free for limited time with XBL so that makes my weekly Xbox game done. (Unfortunately,the game will only run until 31/12/2013 so enjoy while it lasts!)
  • Any word on an official Target app?
  • Lots of games are not available for us :(
  • Man, I love Farm Frenzy.
  • I bought Joining Hands 2 a few days ago for 0.99 during their anniversary sale.
  • Red Stripe Deals this week on the Windows 8 store too!   
  • Please release fuse in Indonesia.  what availabe now only the free version, without the ability to purchase the app
  • Just an FYI but today Microsoft also extended the Red Stripe Deal of the Week to Windows 8/RT as well. This week's discounted Windows 8 Xbox game is Reckless Racing Ultimate. Non-Xbox are Joining Hands 2 (just like on Windows Phone) and Einstein Brain Trainer.
