Games/Apps: Shades $1, UBoost Wii U GamePad battery extender $8, Ultimate Hangman free, more freebies

In today’s best game/app deals, Shades: A Simple Puzzle Game for iOS has dropped to $1 (Reg. $2). While we have seen it go free as the iTunes app of the week, this Apple highlighted puzzler has received 4+ stars from nearly 7,000 reviewers and hasn’t been this low since.

GameStop is offering the Nyko UBoost for Wii U for $7.97 plus $3.50 shipping, but you can also lock it in for $7.97 with free Prime shipping if you don’t mind waiting until its back in stock. You’ll find the black model available for $13.99 Prime shipped on Amazon right now. That’s well under half the original listing and the best price we can find. It clips on to the back of your Wii U controller and as much as doubles the battery life:

The UBoost works in conjunction with the existing GamePad battery providing 2x the battery power for up to 10 hours of playtime. The extra playtime of the built-in battery is complemented by a built-in stand, perfect for watching streaming content such as movies or TV shows on the GamePad’s screen.
