Percepto, Apple’s Game of the Week when it first released back in early 2011, is an interesting puzzle game in which you take on the role of a small boy who falls asleep and awakens in a strange two-dimensional world.

Your aim, then, is to escape your new flattened confines by overcoming various puzzles, which require you to flip switches and activate moving blocks. In order to progress, you’ll have to move in 2D but exercise your brain and think in 3D. If you’re up for a delightful and unique puzzler, be sure to grab Percepto while it’s still free.

Play the Walking Dead adventure game on your iDevice

If you download one game today, make sure it’s Telltale’s award-winning point-and-click adventure Walking Dead: The Game. This five-part series is just spectacular… from start to finish.

In Episode 1: A New Day, you take on the role of a con named Lee Everett, who’s thrust into survival mode when his police escort careers off-road and into a walker-filled forest. Your aim is to safely make your way to the small town of Macon, Georgia. Along your journey, you’ll meet and greet plenty of other apocalypse survivors, and be faced with tons of tough decisions. These decisions have an impact on future episodes. So, if you get on the wrong side of a survivor, don’t expect him to help you out of a sticky situation later down the line. Simply put, if you enjoy a good adventure game and are fan of the TV show/comics, be sure to grab Ep1 while it’s still free.
