Apps Gone Free Roundup: Death Rally, Rock Prodigy: Guitar and more
Remedy Entertainment’s highly popular Death Rally, a gorgeous looking action/racing game for iOS, is now for a limited time. ChiffaN reviewed this remake of the 90’s hit a while back and gave it a Kiss It rating:
Regardless of the minor flaws, Death Rally is a unique and addictive blend of racing and shooting action that will hold your attention for quite some time. The experience offered is currently unmatched on the App Store and if you’re hungry for some high-speed destruction, Death Rally is definitely the choice for you. And did I mention that it’s universal?
Also free (for the entire week) is Rock Prodigy: Guitar, a Guitar Hero like app that makes learning the guitar fun and stress-free. The app is able to “listen” to your picking/strumming and the lessons will automatically pause if you’re playing the wrong notes and chords [Intro video]. Check out the rest of the recent freebies after the break.
