Plants Vs Zombies, arguably one of the most addictive and awesome games for the iDevice, is now on sale for the very first time since its release on the App Store. The iPhone version of PvZ, normally priced at $2.99, is now $0.99. Meanwhile, PvZ HD for the iPad has dropped 50% to $4.99 (down from $9.99). Anyone who’s ever played PopCap Games’ iconic and beloved tower defense game will likely agree that PvZ deserves to be considered among the must-have apps for the platform. In fact, it’s also one of the first 12 inductees into the App Hall of Fame.
If you belong to the few iPhone/iPad gamers who’ve yet to thoroughly enjoy Plants vs Zombies, now would be a great time to take advantage of this Halloween Sale (through Oct 31st).
This week seemed to be more about the little guy than about big players releasing anticipated games. From the fine folks at Team Phobic we have GravBot, a freemium title about a little robot that can alter gravity and is on a mission to collect batteries. If you’re into line drawing and tower defense there’s Towers Vs. Dragons, the game that lets you construct the defenses and then lead the bad guys right into them. For RPG fans FDG has released Across Age HD, the iPad version of their Zelda clone that has lots of environmental puzzles and lets you switch between 2 characters. Finally, for the zombie lovers Appy Entertainment has provided a special treat in All-In-1 ZombieBox, a collection of 10 zombie apps that will keep you entertained with the undead for hours.
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!
Ahoy there, ye mates! The Talk like A Pirate Day is almost upon us and in the spirit of this holiday the adventures of scurvydog Guybrush Threepwood are almost given away. Can’t say what the landlubbers at Anuman, Kali and Jagex have to do with it but there ARE giving away some of their stuff as well! Secret of Monkey Island 1 & 2, Part 3 of Egypt The Prophecy and TriDefense are available for free or at least virtually so. And one of the best old-school RPGs on the iDevice Undercroft has been re-released by its new owner for FREE as well. ‘Tis a grand day indeed!
The Tower Defence genre has bit kind of stale lately. Apart from the release of the solid, but in no way revolutionising Star Wars: Battle for Hoth (TMA Review) I don’t think there have been a title worthy of note for at least a few months. That’s why the arrival of Guns’n'Glory from HandyGames was even more welcome. But to further spike my interest it not only boasted mobile towers and a fresh perspective of being the bad guy, but a full featured FREE, albeit ad-supported Guns’n'Glory FREE version.
I think this week’s biggest news is the potential Angry Birds killer Cannon Cadets. It looks like it might have more of a puzzle solving bent to it, which will hopefully keep it from being labeled “just another clone”. For you action fans there’s Shoot To Kill, a freemium game that’s the first in a potential line of “free for freaks” games. You only need to pay if you want useful save games? Platforming fans were treated to the second installment of the revitalized Ghosts ‘N Goblins series, and if it’s anything like the first it should be a blast. Oh, and I guess there’s that little sequel to a largely unknown iPhone game called iShoot 2…
Update: Civilization Revolution is now FREE!!! Previously at $6.99, this is one heck of a steal.
The weekend is upon us once again and it’s time for another Freebies Roundup. Leading the way is Glu’s hit title Jump O’Clock (TMA Review), a vertical platform game where you take control of a steampunk robot named le0 and attempt to jump from gear to gear and as far up as you can, all the while avoiding various obstacles. Not only did TMA’s Eric Pankoke give the game a Kiss it rating, he also found it more enjoyable than Doodle Jump. Also making the freebie list is Steam Pirates, a uniquely designed and casual RPG/Adventure from Luc Bernard, creator of the popular TBS Mecho Wars (TMA Review).
Lots more freebies can be found after the break. Remember, these deals are only valid for a limited time… so hurry!
This edition of our Freebies Roundup is certainly off to a nice start this week. Mecho Wars (TMA Review), a critically acclaimed turn-based strategy game and one of the more popular in the genre has gone from paid–>free. Anyone looking for a great TBS and one with online multiplayer to boot can’t go wrong with this stylishly designed game. Origin8′s Sentinel 2: Earth Defense, a challenging TD that packs plenty of firepower and towers, can now also be enjoyed as a free App Store download. Other worthwhile titles found in this roundup include Truckers Delight: Episode 1, Call of Atlantis and Zombie Shock.
Lots of goodies can be found within, but as always, don’t wait long as some of the offers are only good for a very limited time! Be sure to hit the entire list after the gap…
It’s time to get your inner god-smasher on with this week’s biggest release – Hero Of Sparta II. I’m probably in the minority of those who wasn’t a huge fan of the first one, but for the rest of you, this one sounds bigger, badder and all out better. I’m even tempted to give it a shot. If you’d like to see how the makers of We Rule would tackle farming there’s We Farm, ngmoco’s answer to FarmVille. For the tower defense fan who’s “seen it all”, there’s Cowboys Vs. Zombies, an interesting take on the genre that has you defending several towns against zombie onslaughts using the fighters of the old west. And, for the old school construction gamer there’s SimCity Deluxe, the next iteration of the long running franchise to make its way to the iPhone. Just like Hero Of Sparta II it appears to be a decent improvement over the first, so if you’re looking for some city building action, you might want to check it out.
In an update that combined unexpected crashing and the disappearance of the beloved iconic Dancing zombie from their iPhone version, fans are up in arms over Popcap Games’ upsetting ‘business decision’ to remove the Thriller-era Michael Jackson lookalike from the roster of the lovable undead in Popcap Games’ runaway tower defense hit, Plants vs. Zombies (TMA review)
Acting on the request of the Estate of Michael Jackson, the developers have promptly given the Dancing Zombie a makeover with a new one and ramped up the update with 12 new iPhone exclusive achievements and bug fixes.
