Before you go looking for leprechauns and a pot of gold for St. Patrick’s Day, check out the following Irish-themed specials now available through the weekend in the Windows Store.

Better than a four-leaf clover is “World of Tanks Blitz,” a cross-platform combat adventure with more than 200 international tanks and 18 battle arenas. This week, new tank destroyer Angry Connor, decked out in camouflage green, enters the fray.

If ancient battle is more your style, show off your strategy to take the throne in “March of Empires,” now offering a St. Patrick’s Day bundle with 25 percent more game items today through Saturday.

After the battlefield, you might be ready for the 130 shoot-to kill missions in “Sniper Fury,” which has up to 40 percent off in-app purchases for a week. And if fast cars are appealing, check out the St. Patrick’s Day deal in “Asphalt 8” (phone and PC) where you can enjoy 50 percent off select cars now through Saturday.


Other Emerald Isle fun includes special leprechaun characters in the building games “2020: My Country” and “Paradise Island 2.” The characters will be around through Monday.

May the road rise up to meet you as you check out all the St. Patrick’s Day specials in the Windows Store. Also, keep up with what’s hot, new and trending in the Windows Store on Twitter and Facebook.
