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.

4 Thrones is Free for Today Only to Celebrate the Launch of a Kickstarter Campaign for Physical Cards

4 Thrones is free for today only, so get on it folks! The one day sale is taking place because the company is celebrating the launch of its Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the 4 Thrones game for physical play.

In our review, Jennifer Allen said, “A purist’s delight, 4 Thrones is ever steady in offering enjoyment to card game fans. A trickle of new themes unlock the more that one plays, offering a relatively minor yet oddly attractive reason to keep on playing. 4 Thrones is easily the kind of game to pass the time with whenever there’s a spare five minutes in the day. It’s quite delightful.”

    Tomb Breaker keeps it simple with gameplay just a matter of matching up gems and nothing more. It's fun for a time, but pretty forgettable.
