In a surprise gesture Freeverse has just set Warpgate (TMA Review) free on both iPhone and iPad, down from $4.99 and $7.99 respectively. This is even more intriguing since during the whole year neither versions have even been discounted once. I’m not sure how long this will last so before even continuing on reading this post I suggest you grab them. Now!
Freeverse, Inc, Warpgate HD, 164.93MB – Free
Hopefully both are already downloading in your iTunes and you can breathe easily now. And I will tell you what you have just grabbed. Warpgate is the first true open space trading/exploration/shooter ever on the iDevice. It has captivated me for weeks about a year ago when it was initially released and I couldn’t rest or pick up anything else until I finished the whole bloody thing. Be sure to check out my full review or at least my summary below. Enjoy!
Trade, communicate, explore and fight or simply follow the story – do what you want, when you want and for hours on end. Warpgate is a bustling world just waiting for you explore, wrapped in a beautiful graphical package with an intuitive and easy-to-use interface. Without a doubt, Freeverse’s latest is one of the true gems on the App Store and not to be missed. Warp speed, Mr. Zulu!
We’ve seen quite a few games pop-up on the App Store claiming to be a Survival Horror. Unfortunately none of them delivered, even those from top franchises like SILENT HILL The Escape (US) or Resident Evil 4: PLATINUM and Resident Evil: Degeneration, which turned out to be quite mediocre third-person shooters. Most importantly – none of them delivered the experience of playing a Survival Horror, where you feel like you’re fighting for your life in the dark and afraid to look around the corner. And finally about a year ago, a surprise entry took the genre by storm, swiping the crown of Survival Horror games in our AppStore’s Best Adventure Games list. I’m talking, of course, about the first and only scary game for the iPhone – Fallen EP-1 (TMA Review).
In a subsequent interview the developers promised that a new episode would be due soon and I was very enthusiastic about seeing the story continue. Unfortunately due to economic reasons the company dispersed and the release never materialized. But all good things come to those who wait and Vincenzo has contacted me to relay some good news.
Fallen EP-1 is going to make one year now. I’m going to put it for free from now on. I think that past its time, and will be free from now on. We’ll see if and when a new game will rise out of it But now I think I just want it to be in the hands of as many people as possible.
But wait, there’s more after the gap!
Just a few days after the release of the final part of Egypt The Prophecy – Part 3 Anuman Interactive set the first part of the adventure FREE.

Meanwhile look out for a full review from TMA’s own shigzeo soon and check out my preview with hands-on video.
iSink U, Artificial Life’s popular Battleship clone, will be set free for 2 days starting today (did you get that?)

Preamble: One of the most frustrating times for all of the owners of the iPod Touch is when Apple release a new OS version which requires money. Till now, there have been 3 such pay-to-play updates, costing owners up to 30$. Thanks to this, a significant percentage of the iPod Touch owners still run the good old 2.2.1.
Declaration: Well, iPod touch owners rejoice! Apple have finally waived the upgrade fee starting with iPhone OS 3.1.3. If you have been stuck with 2.2.1, either waiting for new hardware, or for a better allowance, your wait is over. You can download 3.1.3, enjoy all the features of 3.0, and not pay a dime. Of course, 3.1.3 isn’t yet Jailbreaked, so if you really want Cydia or Rock apps, you will have to wait a while, but at least OS 3.x is available for nothing!
Face it, each and every one of you has wanted to annoy your neighbours with songs from your teeny-bopping iTunes collection. Imagine: Oprah soundboards, talk-show clips, John Denver singing about farm life: each available for every call at the behest of your phone’s over-amped speakers. There are a couple of simple and legal methods to do this without purchasing additional ringtones. But if you are lazy and filthy rich, Sony have something to help you unload your unneeded dosh.
Follow the gap for the how to and 3rd-party links:
Love tower defence? Well then, today’s your lucky day! If you hurry, you can get a couple of good TD games absolutely free! And our lucky winners are… (after the gap)
Okay… wait for it, wait for it… Hooray! If you ask me, this is nothing short of miracle, but you CAN have Push for GMail for free! And it works without ANY 3rd party apps on your phone!
1984 was a big year for the world, a BIG year. Steve Jobs’ pet project, the Macintosh was launched despite all that Big Brother could do; Great Britain agreed to return Hong Kong to China; the AIDS virus was isolated by French scientists; and Ronald Reagan, President of the United States, declared July National Ice Cream Month – a holiday that I am happily celebrating half the world away. As part of Ice Cream Month, the third Sunday of this balmy month is a special day marked by near religious observances of one of America’s favourite foods. Nutritious according to the International Dairy Foods Association, ice cream as a food, props up nearly 9% of the American Dairy industry.
Well, Nimblebit, creator of the wildly popular Scoops for the iPhone is joining in festivities, honouring 19 July with an extra scoop. Yes, the very same 3rd Sunday of the month, Scoops will be 3$ shy of its normal price (that means FREE!) and in its own digital way, celebrate the sweet and sloppy food. Be sure to grab it on the 19th as this sale won’t come again!

We’ve already previewed/reviewed the game, held a nice giveaway and even interviewed the bright minds of Gamevil right at the heart of their Seoul Headquarters. So what else is there to cover about Zenonia? The Lite version of course! Gamevil has just sent word that Zenonia Lite is here and now available at the App Store. That’s right folks, the iDevice’s best ARPG can be downloaded free for all to see what the fuss is all about. This version features:
- Total 8 playable main & sub quests
- Full feature play in the village of Alyes
- Normal and rare items available among 5 item classes.
By the looks of it, Zenonia Lite still offers quite a bit for gamers to sink their teeth into. I’d even say that it’d be surprising NOT to see if this one make it to #1 on the Free Apps chart in the very near future. Do yourself a favor and check it out if you haven’t already done so.
