Finger Physics: Thumb Wars (iPhone) Free (was $0.99)

Finger Physics is one of those great puzzle games that impresses you with what it can do on the iPhone. There are two brands of puzzles found within the game – one in which you need to manipulate a set of objects to get a ball to an end point, and another that has you stacking shapes like blocks in specific ways, trying to keep them from falling over.

There are tons of levels to play and replay, and the whole game is a lot of simple but challenging fun. It’s free, so there’s really no excuse. If you like iPhone games, it’s a good chance you’ll like this one.

Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night (iPhone)$0.99 (was $4.99)

On sale for Halloween is this interesting mix of a Tetris-like puzzle game with elements of Konami’s classic Playstation side-scroller, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Just for the fact that it’s related to SotN alone is worth a dollar, because for any experienced video gamer, Symphony ranks among the best games ever made.

Even though it claims to combine both puzzle and role-playing game elements (which admittedly sounds weird), Castlevania Puzzle boasts something like 20 hours of gameplay. For a dollar, talk about value!

It’s not clear just how long this one will be free, so get it now while you can.

Quick Calories (iPhone) $0.99 (was $1.99)

Since you might already be using our previous choice at the grocery store to figure out what to eat, fire up this one to help make the right food choices. Quick Calories is an extremely simple calorie tracker, without any bells and whistles. Plug in the calories you ate and when you ate them and the app logs how much you’re consuming every day. Knowing how much you’re eating every day, you can then make adjustments to your diet to be healthier and lose weight.

Just don’t expect this app to help you out with figuring out what the calories are in your food.
