Indie iPhone Holiday Sale Offers Six Games for $0.99 Each, Some Proceeds Benefit Child's Play

A brand new holiday gaming deal with a charitable bent has been announced by a half-dozen independent iPhone game developers. Six of the most popular iPhone games are currently on sale for only $0.99 each, through December 31.

One third of the proceeds from each sale (after Apple takes their cut) will be donated to Child's Play, a charity that helps sick kids in children's hospitals all over the world.

The challenging planetary puzzlers, Eliss (Steph Thirion) and Osmos (Hemisphere Games), and Darrel Johnson's parkour-platformer, Canabalt, join Tiger Style's Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor, Mikeengreg's surreal Solipskier, and Area/Code's Tetris-Sudoku hybrid, Drop7.

You can visit the IndieSale website for a little more info about the sale its included games, or just fire up iTunes and grab any of the listed games for less than a buck.

    Awesome deals, every single game are well worth in excess of $5 or more. The added bonus of benefitting Child's Play charity is even better. Every game should be bought without hesitation, they seriously have a lot of fun in each one.
