Cowabunga! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run Is Currently Free

Posted by on July 23rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Presumably due to the forthcoming movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run is free on the App Store at the moment.

The game allows you to control your favorite turtle as he runs, jumps, fights, and drives his way through New York’s endless landscape.

We weren’t too keen on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run when it first came out, mostly because there was a ton of grinding to it. However, as it’s gone free for a limited time this might be just the right time for you to see if you agree with us.

We’re not sure how long it’s on sale for, so we’d suggest grabbing it as soon as possible.

Seriously, there are some really great titles on this list. If you’ve been on the fence about downloading games like Threes! or Eliss Infinity, now’s the time to fix that.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Fantastic puzzle game, The Room Two, is currently on sale for $0.99 and, well, I don’t really want to say any more than that. It’s brilliant – what more do you need to know?

Richly deserving of our Editor’s Choice award at the end of 2013, the game has you attempting to unlock multiple boxes in order to piece together the mystery that binds them all together. It’s a deeply atmospheric puzzle game that feels remarkably tactile in nature.

It was a bargain at its regular price and it’s all the sweeter at $0.99. Buy it now before the price goes back up.
