Freebies Roundup: Bumble Tales, Fastar! and more FREE for limited time
It’s Friday, so you know it’s time for our Freebies Roundup. Lots of titles have gone from paid–>free once again, so there should be something for everyone. Bumble Tales, one of the more enjoyable match 3 games on the App Store, is now free and fans of the genre should find plenty of reasons to like this one. This multi-platform hit title (PC, Mac and now iDevice) was previously reviewed on TMA and it received a solid Grab It rating for its charm and upgradable characters and building powers (among other things). Also free is Cat in a Box Games’ Fastar!, an “Action RPG” with a concept that allows for great pick-up-and-play gameplay. And once you give it a chance, you’ll be surprised at how a simple design can be this much fun.
Lots more recent freebies can be found after the break. Remember, these deals are only valid for a limited time… so hurry!
