Sometimes, a game comes along and sets a mark so deep in its genre, that the name of the game itself becomes a description of that genre.
Plants Vs. Zombies [HD], by PopCap, is sure one of those cases. There are lots of “Plants Vs. Zombies” type of games, but if you are looking for the original thing, this is your chance, because its price has dropped to zero. Totally FREE for a limited time!
In this game, you have 5 lanes. Each lane is being invaded by zombies that want to feast loudly with your brain. Your only defense, as everyone knows, is to attack them with plants!
Each plant has its own powers, and you should think strategically in order to beat the zombie waves that come at you.
You must defeat them over 50 levels, earn money, upgrade and buy power ups for your veggie army.
In addition, you can grow your own zen garden, play mini-games to relax, and get achievements in the process.
Plants Vs. Zombies is FREE for a limited time, for both iPad and iPhone. Grab it!
Looking to fight a few epic battles? Need to go medieval on someone else’s head? Look no more.
Infinity Blade by Chair Entertainment Group has just dropped its price to zero, null, nada, take-it-please, you-can-have-it. Which means it’s free.
By this time, you must have heard about it already, as it is not a recent game.
First released in December of 2010, Infinity Blade brought the “wow factor” to the iOS devices. The graphics, the gameplay, the smoothness, it all contributed to the huge success of it. And it still does.
Granted, a sequel was released, but this title is still an awesome choice (and a free one, for a limited time).
The user interface is simple enough. Tap on each side to dodge attacks, tap the shield on the bottom to block, swipe swipe swipe to attack. The game will give you hints about when to strike, by slowing down time whenever your enemy has his guard down.
The game is full of cut scenes, and sometimes you will want to kill your enemy just to see the final kill animation. It is that awesome.
So, if you are ready to deliver some pure damage, install it. It’s free for a limited time and it is Universal.
Holy guacamole, batman! I’ll jump right to the point:
This awesome 3D app combines elements of RPG, spaceships, adventure, market notions and lots of travelling.
Galaxy on Fire 2 has it all:
- 20 solar systems
- Over 100 planets and space stations
- More than 30 ships ready to customize with hundreds of different weapons, upgrades and cargo
- 3D high-definition graphics and breathtaking environments
Maybe the aspect I love the most about this game is that you can do missions, or you can follow the main storyline, or you can just ignore all that and do your own thing. Or do it all at once. It’s your choice, your freedom, and whatever path you decide to follow, the game keeps its high quality and fun.
You can even choose to kill pirates or to become one. In space! How awesome is that? Oh, Firefly memories…
If you are more of a bargain person, you can start a career in trading. Travel through planets and space stations, check their goods at local stores, compare prices, transport cargo from system to system and make profit. Everything is allowed!
So, are you ready to start exploring space, the final frontier?
Don’t forget, it’s FREE for a very limited time, so get that download started already!
Now here’s a game that I didn’t expect much from the screenshots and that blew my mind once I started playing it.
Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim by HeroCraft is not easy to define without digging deeper on its concept.
When you first see it, you don’t even think twice. It’s an RPG. But then you are able to build Armory, Warrior Barracks, Archers Academy, Wizards Houses, all the jazz. So it’s an RPG mixed up with… Settlers? Maybe. But then – and here is where it gets amusing – you realize that you cannot control your little buddies. They have a mind on their own and you just need to give them structure and support for their needs.
So how do you control them?
Well… money, what else? You can set flags around the map and assign a reward for each flag. So the first soldier that gets to the flag, collects the money.
There are two kinds of flags. The scout flag makes them go discovering the map. You can think of it as a “go to this point flag”. But keep in mind that even if you put a price on it, some soldiers may think it’s not worth the effort, so only a few will adventure. Make sure you set the reward tasty enough for them to go there.
The other kind of flag is the attack flag, that you can assign to enemy buildings or enemy soldiers. So the soldier that destroys/kills that specific enemy/building will get the cash.
But why would they want money, you ask? Great question, golden star for you.
They want money for shopping, of course.
It so happens you can build a marketplace and a library. Those are places that allow you to research new spells, weapons, healing potions, and also earn some money for yourself.
Each time you research a new upgrade, the warriors that find it interesting will buy it and use it on battle. Pretty fun.
So this game is a mix of lots of styles and genres, which make it lots of fun.
The good news? It’s Universal and FREE for a limited time! What are you waiting for?
Do you remember Bomberman?
I sure do, and I do remember the countless hours I spent in front of a green monochrome screen playing it.
The concept is the same: drop bombs in strategic places in order to kill enemies, open paths or get power ups.
The blast radius will depend on your power ups, also as the number of bombs you can plant at the same time. The blast of one bomb will trigger the other bomb, if it is in range. If you’re familiar with Bomberman, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Your objective is to get to the portal, after killing your enemies.
Of course it has a few differences from the original. It has more challenges and things you can do. There are bosses and, of course, there is a portal to go to that will take you to the next level.
The controls are the traditional dual pad, but I found it a bit unresponsive in a couple of situations, so it needs a little getting used to, at first.
The game has a multiplayer mode, but it must be unlocked first playing the solo mode, so an odd feature there.
You can play with any of four characters presented above: a vampire, a zombie, a wizard or a knight.
This game is fun, definitely an improve from Bomberman (duh), and it’s free on the AppStore for a limited time.
Just by reading this post’s title you should be installing it already.
The Secret Of The Monkey Island is an all time classic for PCs and if you were born on the 20th century, you probably know what I’m talking about.
Monkey Island Tales 1 by Telltale Inc is the first chapter of the “reboot” of the series, and you may install it for free today.
Now you can be our hero Guybrush Threepwood again, and live fun adventures, with a peculiar sense of humor.
These kind of games were very hot back in the day, and in my opinion, they fit perfectly into iOS devices.
This is a really fun game for all ages, and in some parts you will need a few brain cells.
This episode, “Launch of the Screaming Narwhal”, will leave you on a weird island, and one of your hands will be behaving… differently.
Check the video below, laugh your pants off, and install it. It’s free for limited time.
