[Updated] Freebies Roundup: Dark Nebula Episode 1, Pocket Devil – Hell Yeah! and more FREE for a limited time
It’s Friday (the 13th!) and we’ve prepared another edition of our Freebies Roundup for your weekend gaming needs. To celebrate the release of 1337 Game Design’s highly anticipated sequel Dark Nebula – Episode Two, Episode One can now be experienced on your iDevice for free. For those not familiar, Dark Nebula is essentially Labyrinth on steroids. You must tilt and guide your ball through well designed levels and avoid both enemies and obstacles. The games are simply a blast to play and Ep. 2 is currently one of my favorites on my iPhone. Also free is Pocket Devil – Hell Yeah!, a game where you’re in charge of hell and it’s up to just how you want to treat terrorize your lil’ Mugat2s. If you’re a fan of Pocket God, you’ll want to check this one out as well.
