Apps Gone Free Roundup: Bug Chucker, Moki Blast and more
Cyan’s under-the-radar Bug Chucker, a surprisingly addictive physics puzzler from the makers of Myst (TMA Review) and Riven: The Sequel to Myst (TMA Review), is now free for a limited time. ChiffaN reviewed it some time ago and gave the puzzle game a Grab It rating, saying:
At first glance Bug Chucker seems to be just another Angry Birds wannabe. But Cyan wouldn’t be Cyan if they didn’t have something up their sleeves, and thankfully they managed to stick whole galaxies of fun up there. Bug Chucker turns out to be an original and beautifully designed artillery puzzler with an accurate physics model set in space.
If you can’t get enough of these easy-to-pickup puzzle games on the iPhone, be sure to grab Bug Chucker while the offer’s still good. More Apps Gone Free within, including iBlast Moki (TMA Review) and Cut the Buttons.

Pick up the scissors with two fingers. Be careful. Don’t cut yourself. Cut off the game launch button by moving the scissor blades just like you would with real scissors. If you happen to be a left-handed player, you can configure the direction of the scissors within the settings menu.
The scissors are highly maneuverable. You can use them to control the direction at which the buttons fall after being cut. You can also move the cup with the hand that is not controlling the scissors.
CLASSIC. The game lasts until you miss three scraps of material with buttons left on them. Upon catching 100 buttons in the cup, you can either receive additional points or recover a previously lost button.
ARCADE. Cut off as many buttons as you can in the allotted time and do your best to drop them in the cup.
