[Updated] Freebies Roundup: Jump O’Clock, Steam Pirates and more free for limited time!
Update: Civilization Revolution is now FREE!!! Previously at $6.99, this is one heck of a steal.
The weekend is upon us once again and it’s time for another Freebies Roundup. Leading the way is Glu’s hit title Jump O’Clock (TMA Review), a vertical platform game where you take control of a steampunk robot named le0 and attempt to jump from gear to gear and as far up as you can, all the while avoiding various obstacles. Not only did TMA’s Eric Pankoke give the game a Kiss it rating, he also found it more enjoyable than Doodle Jump. Also making the freebie list is Steam Pirates, a uniquely designed and casual RPG/Adventure from Luc Bernard, creator of the popular TBS Mecho Wars (TMA Review).
Lots more freebies can be found after the break. Remember, these deals are only valid for a limited time… so hurry!
