A recent update introduced a new squid (Jammer), more helmets and 4 more levels of underwater mayhem. Also currently free is Crescent Moon’s Evertales, a solid platformer where you can choose from one of 3 unique heroes. Check out the complete round up of Apps Gone Free right after the gap.

• Sir Jorgin, the mighty knight, is a fierce melee fighter and can take a punch!
• Arwick the Elf specializes in ranged weapons, charm, and an attractive double jump!
