One of the best things about the App Store (aside from the multitude of apps ‘n games) is the amount of great paid–>free content you can find on a daily basis, and this edition of our Freebies Roundup is no exception. Dark Shrine, a solid and fun isometric 3D Action/RPG, is now free and should please those who enjoy the genre. Here’s what Chiffan had to say in his review:
Dark Shrine is a cutesy action/RPG with great characters, fun dialogues, original controls and fun and addictive gameplay. It really shows the way how Action/RPG games can take a step away from the traditional D-Pad/Button controls and provide an extra level of player interaction.
Aside from the usual games we normally see in the roundup, Toodledo, a powerful and robust task/note management app is also now free for a limited time. For those of you implementing the GTD methodology, it’s likely that you’ve already come across, or are evening using the Toodledo service. Personally, it’s not my favorite out there (I’m currently using Nozbe), but as a standalone todo/list type app to help keep track of your work/personal life, you can’t go wrong for the price.
Lots more App Store titles that are free at the moment can be found after the break. Remember, these deals are only valid for a limited time… so hurry!
