Dark Nebula FREE this weekend

Dark Nebula, the mighty fun iPhone/iPod Touch game developed by Anders Hejdenberg (lead designer of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat) has just dropped in price to FREE for the weekend. Back when we reviewed it, we thought very highly of this well designed accelerometer-based game:
