Gameloft has apparently also caught some spring fever and has put five of their best games on sale for $.99 for a limited time. All five games listed below will be on sale until the beginning of spring, which is March 21st.

The game features four levels of difficulty, 12 enemies and nine bosses, 10 original environments spanning across 16 levels, and a variety of gameplay elements. Earthworm Jim sports the usual on-screen controls, but since it also has some racing elements, you will be utilizing tilt controls as well.

Dungeon Hunter ($4.99 -> $.99) A 3D hack and slash RPG set in a dark fantasy world where you must remove the evil plague that has engulfed the land of Gothicus. Dungeon Hunter utilizes the usual on-screen controls, where your left thumbstick controls your character and the right side of the screen is saved for your spells and weapons. The game features three different classes to choose from: Rogue, Knight, and Mage. As you progress through the game killing evil enemies and completing quests, you will be rewarded with experience points. These experience points can be used to upgrade your characters attributes however you please. Like all great action RPGs, Dungeon Hunter includes a wide variety of enemies, armor, weapons, and environments. Blades of Fury ($4.99 -> $.99): A one-on-one Soul Calibur-like fighting game that pits you against some of the best warriors in the world, or you can just take on a friend. The game features two different control schemes: the usual on-screen joystick with buttons or an on-screen joystick with gesture-based attacks. It also features 10 characters to choose from each with their own unique traits, 10 arenas, four single-player game modes, local multiplayer, and about 20 different combos and attacks. Three of the five games (Earthworm Jim, Skater Nation, and Dungeon Hunter) are on sale for their lowest prices ever, so if you were previously considering picking one up, now would be a great time.
