The best deals of the week in handheld and mobile – May 30

Hello all, and welcome to our weekly round-up of the best pocket gaming deals. It’s a bit late, owing to the UK Bank Holiday. But killer deals are always worth waiting for, right?

Each week we cover the best deals in handheld gaming, predominantly covering the latest discounts for iOS and Android gamers.

We also cover a few deals on smartphones themselves, as well as a selection of handheld offers. If it’s portable and cheap, we’re looking out for it.

iOS games

Tabletop games, puzzlers, and charming anomalies. That’s the iOS selection for this week summed up in a sentence.

  • Warhammer 40,000: Regicide for 99p (was £3.99) – buy
  • Onirim: Solitaire Card Game for free (was 99p) – download
  • Never Alone: Ki Edition for 99p (was £4.99) – buy

  • Klocki for free (was 99p) – download


Android games

There’s quite a hardcore strategic slant to this week’s Android deals, whether you’re after a serious boardgame conversions, and rich RPG or a brain-frying puzzler.

  • Causality for 10p (was 99p) – buy
  • Warhammer 40,000: Regicide for 79p (was £3.69) – buy
  • Templar Battleforce for £4.69 (was £9.99) – buy

  • Talisman: The Horus Heresy for £1.99 (was £4.99) – buy

Handset deals

In the Moto Z, you’re getting a metal phone with a powerful Snapdragon 820 CPU, a sharp 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, a capable 13-megapixel camera and nigh-on stock Android 7.0. Oh, and there’s also a clever modular system that Motorola looks set to stick with in 2017. The downsides: no headphone socket and a slightly small battery.

If you want to spend half the money, there’s a good deal on the Wileyfox Swift 2 Plus – one of the classier budget phones on the market.

  • Motorola Moto Z 32GB for £299.95 (save £200) – buy from John Lewis
  • Wileyfox Swift 2 Plus with case and 1 year screen replacement for £149.99 (was £219.99) – buy from Amazon

Handheld deals

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is a new release for the Nintendo Switch (hooray!), but it’s received some criticism for its launch price. Now you can grab it for £5 less.

Elsewhere we have a serious discount on a 3DS Pokemon game. Wonders never cease.

  • Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers on Switch for £29.99 (normally £34.99) – buy from Smyths
  • Pokemon Moon on Nintendo 3DS for £19.95 (was £26.95) – buy from TGC
