Been waiting to pick up some of lauded designer Matt Leacock’s back catalogue on your phone or tablet? Now’s the time to strike.

Leacock’s globetrotting, disease-curing magnum opus, Pandemic, is down to £2.29 for iPhone and iPad, while both Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert are just £1.49 on iPad.

All three of games appears to be decent digital ports, with four-and-a-half to five-star ratings and a slew of award wins and nominations to their names.

They’re all co-op titles you can play solo, alongside friendly computer AI or with human companions using local multiplayer. There’s a variety of other neat virtual features, such as interactive tutorials, various game modes and options, achievements, and in-app purchases for expansions including Pandemic’s On The Brink add-on.

In Pandemic, players work together to rid the world of disease, travelling around the globe, battling outbreaks and building up research centres.

Forbidden Desert sees friends collaborating to search an ancient city for parts of a flying machine before the sand storm claims them.

Its sister title, Forbidden Island, meanwhile, sees up to four adventurers dashing around a sinking island in an attempt to discover hidden treasure.

We're not sure how long the sale will last so, if you're interested, grab them while you can!

Leacock’s acclaimed spin-off of his best-known title developed in conjunction with Rob Daviau, Pandemic Legacy, is yet to make it to mobile devices – presumably you’d have to destroy your phone to capture the same level of permanence as the tabletop hit.
