The Inner World Solves the Mystery of the Price Cut

Posted by on June 11th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Thanks to the work of studios like Double Fine, the point-and-click adventure genre has been revived on virtually every platform that offers games. A recipient of this good faith is German developer Headup Games, and their recent offering, The Inner World.

In celebration of being crowned, “Best German Game” at the German Computer Games Award 2014, the puzzler has now been marked down from $4.99 to a paltry $0.99. If a title is considered good enough to represent the best that an entire country has to offer, it has to be worth spending a buck on, right? Sounds like it is time to investigate what mysteries this “Inner World” has in store.

Republique Snags “Free App of the Week” Honors this Week

Posted by on June 5th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It seems like just yesterday indie development studio Camouflaj successfully Kickstarted their freshmen iOS release, République. Since then, not only has the title successfully released its first two chapters, but yesterday it was elevated to the status of Apple’s “Free App of the Week.”

Now, it is worth noting that the actual free portion of the game only consists of the base download, which includes the first chapter, but it should be a great way to give everyone an initial free taste. Each of the additional chapters will be available for $4.99, or a discounted season pass total of $14.99.

SXPD developers Little Chicken have today decided to “flick the switch” marked ‘Make the game free for a bit,’ meaning that the game can, for today only, be downloaded for absolutely nothing. The reason for this short sale is to celebrate an upcoming update, which will make the game into a Universal app, add Game Center support, and make adjustments based on player feedback.

We gave the game a solid 3.5 stars in our review a couple weeks back, so what have you got to lose?

Grab Infinity Blade II Now While it’s Free, Just in Case You Still Don’t Own it

Posted by on May 29th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

The second game in the Infinity Blade series is currently free, so if for some odd reason you still don’t own it you’ve pretty much run out of excuses.

Infinity Blade II follows Siris as he attempts to free The Worker of Secrets and, hopefully, save the world. It also introduced players to two new weapon styles (dual wielding and two-handed), ClashMobs, and a more cohesive plot (see previous).

Really there’s no reason not to grab Infinity Blade II now while it’s free. I guess not unless you already own it, anyway.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Playing the badguy can be pretty fun, as we’ve mentioned when we reviewed Castle Doombad earlier this year. But playing the badguy for super-cheap is downright awesome.

For a limited time you can jump into the shoes (scrubs?) of the infamous Dr. Lord Evilstein as he captures princesses and fends off do-gooding heroes. You’ll get to set up traps, summon minions, collect screams, and slaughter goodguys by the dozens – all for a buck. That’s a reasonable price to pay for eventual world domination, right?

Whether or not your intentions are good or ill, you can download Castle Doombad right now for $0.99.
