Apps Gone Free Roundup: Drop The Chicken, Zombie Samurai and more

The weekend’s upon us and a number of App Store freebies are just waiting for a new home on your iDevice. Drop The Chicken, a popular iOS puzzle game clearly inspired by Cut the Rope (though it is addictive in its own right) is now free for a limited time. Also free is Alawar’s Zombie Samurai, a castle defense type game that incorporates Fruit Ninja’s swipe-to-slice mechanics. And if you’ve been planning on spending less time on the couch and more time in the gym, 6 Pack Promise could motivate you into working out those once rock-hard abs. Be sure to check out the rest of the roundup after the break!

Drop The Chicken

Drop The Chicken is a fun filled, addictive and challenging puzzle game. Our hero ‘Chuck The Chicken’, after an exceptional career as a circus acrobat, shot himself out of a canon and escaped into a nearby farm.

Your mission is to help Chuck get to each nest while eating all the bugs along the way. Drag the acrobatic tools into place and then click the switch and watch Chuck bounce, slide and float around the levels.

Use balloons, fans, conveyors, mouse holes, elastic bands, chick magnets and springs in your effort to get all the bugs! Think before you drop and be sure to avoid the bombs, saws and other obstacles.
