Here's a little pick me up for those of you who loathe Mondays. Firemint's Real Racing and Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter have both received price cuts of $2.00, pushing their retail price all the way down to $4.99. Real Racing, although having been released about five months ago, is still one of the best simulation racers for the iPhone and iPod touch. It features 48 cars in four classes, 12 tracks, five game modes, six-player local multiplayer over Wi-Fi, online league play and leader boards, and the the ability to upload replays to YouTube. The game was recently updated with two new cars, both Volkswagen GTIs, which were featured in Firemint's Volkswagen sponsored Real Racing demo, Real Racing GTI. Real Racing was originally launched in the App Store at $9.99. Dungeon Hunter's first day of availability was quite difficult, as it had to be pulled from the App Store due to a major bug that prevented players from being able to get past a certain level. Gameloft remedied the issue as quickly as possible, and re-released the game, which obviously made many action RPG fans very happy. The game plays like the classic Diablo franchise, and features on-screen controls, three different character classes, and tons of quests, enemies, environments, and loot. Dungeon Hunter was originally priced at $6.99. Hopefully by picking up one or both of these great games you will be able to capably fight off your case of the Mondays.
