Everyone's favorite "pretend you're exscaping a horde of zombies and get fit while doing it" simulator, Zombies, Run!, has just gone free. And not the on-sale kind of free, either - it's completely shifted to a freemium model.

The Sleeping Prince is Free for the Month - Yes, the Month

[Editor's Note: We've just learned that the all-inclusive and free updated version Sleeping Prince won't be releasing until late this evening/early tomorrow. So it's not available just yet, but will be soon. Terribly sorry if we've caused any confusion. - Rob]

Signal Mobile's goofy sleepwalking simulator (note: not really a simulator), The Sleeping Price, has had a significant price drop. Now you can download the game for free. For a while.

The sale will be going on through the month of December, and will jump back up to a premium price in January. This is definitely a sale, though. It's not a "lite" version or anything of the sort. There's unlimited magic, no in-app purchases, and no ads. It's just free. For, like, a month.

It's not a permanent price drop though, so if you want to grab The Sleeping Prince before you'll have to pay for it you should probably act now. Lest you forget and end up kicking yourself once the calendar ticks over to 2015.

Mini Ninjas has just hit 6 million downloads, and to celebrate, publisher Square Enix is offering the popular endless runner game for free. This knocks it down from its previous price of $0.99.

Based on authentic ninja values, this beautiful, fast paced, fun adventure game takes you on an epic and exciting journey, free from gruesome violence and high on Ninja fun. Play as one of 4 Ninja heroes: Hiro, Futo, Suzume or Kunoichi, and run, jump and slash your way through amazing spellbound lands to retrieve stolen artefacts and do battle with evil Samurai Warlods.

We had an opportunity to review Mini Ninjas a while back and quite liked it.

As noted, the game is currently available for free (with optional in-app purchasing) on the App Store.

To thank everyone who helped make the original launch a success, SEGA has gifted players a VIP Pass valued at $4.99 that features four playable characters including the blue blur, Sonic himself. In addition, the game will remain completely ad-free for those who first bought the game.
