We’re doing our best to help you save as much money as possible this holiday season, and those efforts extend beyond sharing great Black Friday sales and other deep discounts on all sorts of gadgets. We also regularly share nifty paid iPhone and iPad apps that go on sale for free, and today’s list has eight great apps that would regularly cost you $41 to download, but each and every one of them is free right now for a limited time.

DON’T MISS: Some of the best deals all year on Apple gear are available right now

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.

The Nightmare Cooperative

The-Nightmare-Cooperative

Normally $3.99.

Fiendishly difficult! Adorably cute! Utterly engrossing!
How much gold can you get before your entire team is destroyed? IT’S NEVER ENOUGH!

Play The Nightmare Cooperative now – it’s a strategic adventure where you lead a group of unlikely comrades through some rather difficult situations. Your village has fallen on hard times (due to reckless spending by the Village Council) and it’s up to you to bring back some gold.

The Nightmare Cooperative is a puzzley roguelike. You control a group of characters, each with different special abilities. The trick? They all move together, as a group. Something of a cooperative, if you catch the drift.

Every playthrough will be different, and you’ll always have to start at the beginning, no matter how well (or badly) you did before. Your score is the amount of gold that you pickup during your journey. Opening crates gives you extra gold, but releases more monsters.

Check the Game Center leaderboards to see how well you’ve done!
