Tag Games jacked! Car Jack Streets free for the weekend

carjackstreets_featured
Put your 300 pennies away this weekend and spend it on something that will make you look pretty. Tag Games’ hit, Car Jack Streets (CJS) will be free the entire weekend, starting … on the weekend. While the weekend has various connotations depending on your station in life; that is to say, for university students, weekends start after Thursday’s Pub Night is over, and for office workers in Seoul, the weekend is that space between 3am and 6am on Sunday mornings. For the rest of us, let’s just hope that Tag Games are not Korean.

Take a look at TMA’s exhaustive CJS review and then go for it – no harm in downloading a free app! But if you cannot wait, by all means, whip back out your 300 coppers and have at it a bit early.

iDodge: Space Ninja now free for a day

idodge_spaceninja1idodge_spaceninja2

Want a free app to kick start the weekend? Well do yourself a favor and download iDodge: Space Ninja ASAP! Released back in January for $3.99, iDodge is an intense and addictive accelerometer based game that will keep you glued to your iDevice screen for hours on end. Why is it free? Here’s the dev’s explanation: “Free for less than a day, because someone from outside the US really wants the game”. Well, that makes perfect sense and certainly good enough a reason for me :)

You are the elite space mercenary “Space Ninja”. You have been tasked to deliver a certain object to Jupiter, but mysteriously turret defense systems throughout the galaxy started attacking you.

Force your way through 40 stages of galactic defense systems using your special time-slowdown ability (touch the screen to activate) or using 7 different powerups to help you get through the hardest of defenses.

If you have yet to try this game,what are you waiting for? Go Go Go!!!
