The Appvent Calendar returns, a Free App and Game everyday until Christmas

Blacksmith Games, the brains behind the adorable platformer Plushed, is back again for another Appvent Calendar event. Like last year, the Appvent Calendar will feature a free quality game everyday until Dec 25th. In addition, iDevice users will be treated to a free daily app (non-game) as well. Leading off the Calendar is the awesome Time Geeks: Find All!, a stylish and fun spot the object game that shouldn’t be missed. Also free is My Artists, an app that enhances your iPod music library with images, videos and more.

And if you missed it earlier, Gameloft is also running their Twitter Advent Calendar, where they’ll also be giving away freebies and announcing sales daily for the next 24 days. Oh yeah, their smash hit Driverâ„¢ is now free (previously $4.99). Make sure you grab it before it’s too late!

Daily Christmas steals and deals


With Thanksgiving (and the black friday deals) behind us and Christmas only 3 weeks away, gamers on the look out for more sales/deals should keep an eye out for the Appvent Calendar and  EA’s ’25 Games Til X’MAS events. Blacksmith Games, the dev team behind the upcoming Plushed, are responsible for the Appvent Calendar, where an iDevice game will be free for 24hrs worldwide up until Dec 22nd. Today’s freebie is Hexage’s puzzler, Totemo. If you enjoy surprises (and free games), be sure to bookmark their calendar page.

Meanwhile, EA have also launched a daily event that will see an App Store game of theirs go on sale (up to 80% off) everyday until Dec 22nd. Today, both Auditorium and Surviving High School can be had for $0.99. To find out the latest deals of the day, you can follow EA on Twitter and/or Facebook for their X’MAS annoucements.

Hopefully, other publishers will also jump on the wagon and give us all something more to cheer about (daily) before the Christmas rush.
