LEX Goes Free For One Day In Honor of New Update

Posted by on July 24th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It’s a big day for Simple Machine’s word game, LEX. For one thing, it’s just been updated so that it now throws double letters into the mix, plus there are some handy bug fixes going on.

To celebrate that update, LEX is entirely free to download for today only!

Plus, for the coding buffs out there, LEX has also been made open-source for the public, meaning that coders can manipulate the code as they please if they wish. Simple Machine has explained that they believe “ownership is becoming obsolete,” which is why they want to inspire young and old through this venture. A video below explains more on the matter.

For those yet to try LEX, I’d suggest diving in now before the price goes back up.

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.

Oceanhouse Media want kids to read, whilst home this season, so thus there’s a sale, if you needed a reason. Over twenty apps, now cheaper to get, most down a dollar, others further yet.

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?

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.

To celebrate Independence Day as well as the launch of Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein, Shenandoah Studio‘s Battle of the Bulge and Drive on Moscow: War in the Snow are now on sale for the next week.

On sale initially at $2.99, in an interesting twist, the price will steadily increase as the week goes by. An extra $1 will be added to the price each day from July 5 – meaning you should get in quick for the maximum discount of 70% off, only for today and tomorrow.

We really enjoyed both historical strategy games, so you know what to do. The games are on sale until July 10 but I’d suggest deciding quickly for maximum benefit.

Impressively titled, Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game, is currently on sale and will cost you a grand total of absolutely nothing.

We weren’t entirely impressed by it upon first release in April, mostly because it’s a little repetitive. Having said that, for free, what have you got to lose? If you’re like me and a sucker for blockbuster movie tie-ins, you’ll probably find something to enjoy here.

We’re not entirely sure why it’s on sale or for how long, so grab it quickly while you’re thinking about it!

Halfbrick makes some pretty great games. Games like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. In fact, I’m betting there’s a pretty good chance you’ve already played many (if not all) of their games. But if you haven’t, now is the best possible time to fix that.

At the moment, just about every single game in Halfbrick’s library is on sale for free. This includes the aforementioned Fruit Ninja, Fruit Ninja HD, Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots, Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots HD, Fish Out of Water!, Colossatron: Massive World Threat, Age of Zombies, and Monster Dash.

Whew!

So if any or even all of those titles sound interesting, get yourself to the App Store and start downloading!

Just in time for the wrap-up of E3, Rodeo Games has dropped the price on their fantastic strategy RPG and past 148Apps Editor’s Choice award recipient, Warhammer Quest. What would once have set you back $4.99 is currently selling for a mere $0.99.

As far as we can tell there is no context for the price lowering, or for that matter any indicator as to whether this is a permanent price slashing, but it is best to assume that this is a limited time event. So move fast and snag one of the best strategy experiences that the App Store has to offer. It is a decision that you most certainly won’t regret.
