If you’ve gotten the Windows Store update that started rolling out to customers this week, you may have noticed that our Red Stripe Deals are now easier to find on the Store Home page. Just check out the “Collections” area in the bottom left portion of the page, or tap “Collections” in the new nav bar across the top.
This week, we’ve got some great new deals worth 50% or more (like, FREE!) off of a variety of apps and games.
Zombies Can’t Jump
Starting us off, we have Zombies Can’t Jump, which is normally $1.99 in the Windows Store, but this week it’s FREE! Can’t get much better than that, can you? It’s survivalist adventure, where you build up your anti-zombie arsenal with TNT, spiked balls, and other weapons, working your way through 20 original stories. FREE this week for Windows 8.1 and for Windows Phone.

This best-selling, authoritative dictionary was written especially for people who are learning English.

It’s also nicely integrated with Windows 8.1: you can snap it to the side of any other app for easy access, and you can search the dictionary from other apps via the Windows Search charm. If you’ve been holding back on getting this because of the price (it’s normally $29.99 on Windows or $27.99 on Windows Phone), be sure to grab it this week for just $14.99 on Windows, and $13.99 on Windows Phone.
