Aside from the ever increasing new entries into the App Store, one thing you can always count on are the heaps of price drops that appear on a daily basis. Earlier today, Chiffan’s Hot Steals and deals post highlighted some awesome $0.99 bargains, including Secret of Monkey Island 1 & 2 (heck, even TETRIS is now only $0.99!!). Even better of course are the Freebie deals, which we’ve hand picked for this roundup. Leading the way is Undercroft (TMA Review), one of the most notable old-school RPGs on the iDevice. With 5 hero classes to choose from and over 20 hours of gameplay, fans of the genre mustn’t miss out. Also free is Flight Doodle, an Up there (and high score) type game that’s filled with power ups, colorful visuals and an option to design and customize your own balloon.
Lots more titles that have recently gone from paid–>free can be found after the break. Remember, these deals are only valid for a limited time… so hurry!

First of all, it’s a word game that’s DIFFERENT from anything else you’ll find on the App Store, and that’s by design. We were tired of seeing the same word game themes recycled over and over again…anagrams, Boggle, word finds, and stuff like that. We wanted to make something truly unique, and I think we’ve succeeded. Here are some qualities that I think make Moxie truly special:
* NO PRESSURE. Moxie is not a race. There’s no clock. You can go as fast or as slow as you like.
* QUICK TO PLAY. The average game of Moxie takes less than 5 minutes.
* REWARDS STRATEGIC THINKING. You don’t need a vocabulary the size of Webster’s dictionary to score well. Sure, it helps to know a lot of words, but good old-fashioned strategy will get you a lot farther.

An addictive new take on a classic math card game! The goal of the game is deceptively simple: make the number 24 using the four given numbers and basic arithmetic — addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
For example, given the numbers 4, 7, 8, 8, one possible solution is: (7-8/8)*4, but it can also be solved as: 8*(4+7-8). Some problems have many solutions, others only one. Some puzzles you’ll solve very quickly… but some are so devilishly difficult they’ll drive you batty!
