This War of Mine teaser

Our man of apps, Joe Hindy, spends his life wading through apps – the good, the bad and the ugly – in order to highlight the very best for you. Last year, the very best of the best was This War of Mine: our choice for best Android game of 2015. An engrossing and sometimes uncomfortable survival game that sees you fighting to survive in a post-war environment, This War of Mine is currently 70% off.

The game usually comes with a hefty $14.99 price tag, so to be able to get it for less than five bucks is one of the best game bargains you’re likely to see. Back in November last year it got a temporary half-price discount, but this is so much sweeter. There’s no telling how long the $4.99 price will stick around, so now is the time to act.

The game sees you taking control of a band of survivors that must scavenge, evade and outthink the snipers, soldiers and scumbags that litter the ruined city. As Joe said in his best Android games of 2015 roundup: “it’s an unrepentant, gruesome and merciless rollercoaster ride that manages to succeed in almost every possible way.”
