Posts Tagged 33rd Division

A lot of people really liked 33rd Division and its World War II-themed line-drawing, yet it suddenly disappeared from the App Store back in 2009 for reasons unknown. It was gone, but certainly not forgotten. And pretty soon it won’t actually be gone anymore, either.

Rejoice, WWII line-drawing enthusiasts, Craneballs is bringing 33rd Division back on October 17 with HD graphics, new items, some new gameplay mechanics, and even iPad support! It’s not just that, either; Game Center and Facebook integration is being added so you can compete with your friends, a double-speed button will be available to move things along if the action starts to drag, and the whole thing is going to be free to play. Looks like it might be time to re-enlist.

If you didn’t grab anything during the slew of Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, you can still get some sweet deals elsewhere—Blacksmith Games’ Appvent Calender has kicked off today and will be running up until Christmas. A different game will be offered for free every day, just as in an advent calender…gotta love those puns. About a week ago, I wrote about this upcoming free-fest, and now it’s here!

The first game is a great one, too: 33rd Division. Jeff took a look at this one back in October and rated it 4.5 stars out of 5. Nice! If you’re a fan of path-drawing games like Flight Control and Harbor Master, make sure to grab 33rd Division while it’s free.

Future games have yet to be revealed, but the developer behind the program has teased that they will include both “well-known” and unknown games. If they’re all as high-quality as 33rd Division, this holiday season might not drain my wallet as much as I feared!

The Appvent Calender can be found at Make sure to check back every day to see what app’s turned free; “sales” like this are too great to pass up. It might not have chocolate, but this advent calendar knock-off is just as sweet.
