[Updated] Freebies Roundup: Palm Heroes, Jet Ball and more Free for a limited time
If you’re looking for some of the most notable apps/games that have recently gone from paid–>free, look no further than our latest Freebies Roundup. Today we see Palm Heroes, one of the deepest and most satisfying turn based strategy titles on the App Store, go free. ChiffaN previously reviewed the game and had this to say:
To sum it all up, the game is awesome. It is the famous Heroes of Might & Magic in the palm of your hand (hence the name). While for the occasional gamer, it may be a bit difficult to master, anyone who invests the time to understand its mechanics will be rewarded by literally hundreds of hours of gameplay… as you immerse in the Heroes experience you will realise that at $1.99, Palm Heroes is the best quality to price ratio I’ve ever seen (up there with the great AK-47).
For those who enjoy bouncing balls off bricks, Jet Ball (TMA Review), an Arkanoid clone with plenty of tricks up its sleeve, is also part of the freebie fiesta. Lots more goodies can be found within, but do hurry as some deals are only good for a very limited time!
