Save on Red Stripe Deals like ‘Shiny the Firefly’ and the free ‘Doodle Kingdom’

 |   Athima Chansanchai

A fresh set of savings is here with the Red Stripe Deals, which give bargain hunters at least 50 percent off 12 games, apps and Xbox titles for Windows Phone, PCs and tablets.

“Shiny the Firefly” (99 cents in the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store, usually $2.99) is set in the middle of a picturesque garden, where you help reunite Shiny with his babies. Fly, run, hide and defend yourself against mosquitoes, toads, plants, wasps, centipedes and lots of other enemies.

Plants vs. Zombies
“Plants vs. Zombies”

There’s only one type of enemy in “Plants vs. Zombies” ($1.49, usually $2.99): the invasive undead. Use peashooters, wall-nuts, cherry bombs and more to “mulchify” 26 different kinds of zombies before they reach your front door.


In the real world, zombies aren’t the enemy when it comes to your passwords. SecureWord ($1.49 in the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store) is a program that uses strong encryption to safely store passwords, logins, credit cards and files. It can also generate passwords.

"Doodle Kingdom"
“Doodle Kingdom”

The best deal in this batch is “Doodle Kingdom” – free in both the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store. From the makers of “Doodle God” and “Doodle Devil” comes an all-ages fantasy brainteaser. You create your own kingdom with castles, knights, warlocks and dragons.

Other titles on sale through April 1:

Find the Red Stripe Deals collection in the Windows Phone Store and in the Windows Store Collections.
