Microsoft’s Red Stripe Deals started out on Windows Phone, but has been making a positive impact for Windows 8 users too. This week we’ve got a new set of apps for Windows 8 where you can save anywhere from 50% and up on apps! Let’s check them out.
Skulls of the Shogun
Skulls of the Shogun was by far one of the most anticipated games this year on both Windows Phone and Windows 8. It also launched on the Xbox 360 and enabled turn-based strategy gameplay across all platforms. It’s by far one of the best games you can pick up and its Windows Phone version was recently on sale. Today it’s on sale in the Windows Store for just $4.49. You can also download a trial to see if you like it.
This is a game for Windows 8 that we haven’t covered yet, but we just might have to after picking it up. It’s a hack-n-slash game that has strong reviews in the Windows Store from users you’ve already played it. Graphics and performance look good on our Surface, but we’ll of course need more time to make an opinion. The game is going for $2.49 in the Windows Store and includes a free trial.
Grab Pylon in the Windows Store.
We looked at the Windows Phone version of SuperPhoto back in May. Which is why it’s pretty rad that both the Windows and Windows Phone version are Red Stripe Deals in their respective Stores. SuperPhoto is a photo editor for Windows that is crazy packed with features. Its 1300 filters are cloud-powered and stellar. The deal has the app at $1.99 with no free trial.
