The classic JRPG series Ys may not be quite as well known as Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest but it has its charms. I first played the Ys Book I & II games ages ago on the NEC Turbo CD. Since then, the game has been updated/remixed/republished on several platforms including the Nintendo DS and PSP.

The Android version (which is a port from the PSP) of Book I is on sale right now for 0.99 USD (normally 5.49). This is a great price for a classic game with hours and hours of play time. It features an excellent soundtrack and surprisingly effective touch controls (also supports gamepads, etc). The publisher, DotEmu, has done an excellent job of making this game available for mobile users.

The sale is set to last for another five days. Do yourself a favor and check it out today.
