Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game Goes Free

Posted by on June 26th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Official Game is available from the App Store now.

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.


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.

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.
