Minigore (TMA Review) – “Can you survive the onslaught of furries in the dark wilderness of Hardland? Help John Gore avoid his enemies and fill them full of lead in this action-packed arcade shooter. Intuitive dual-stick controls and stunning, fluid visuals make for one of the most addictive and characterful games on the App Store.”

Anuman, publisher of several well known adventure games on the App Store, has dropped Nostradamus The Last Prophecy – Part 1 from $3.99 to Free for one day. This first person adventurer for the iPhone was reviewed by TMA’s Chiffan and here’s what he said:
Nostradamus The Last Prophecy – Part 1 is definitely among the better adventure games out there. It weaves together an original storyline involving the great prophet, a mysterious series of murders and a girl-detective in disguise, not to mention the excellent gameplay with original puzzles thrown in for good measure. Paint it with excellent graphics and we have a tapestry that would make any adventure game fan gitty with excitement.

V-day is here and we’ve got another freebies roundup prepared for you. G5 Entertainment’s solid hidden-object games Mushroom Age and Mushroom Age HD is now free (previously $2.99/$4.99 respectively) for the day. Chiffan reviewed this one a while back and had this to say:
Mushroom Age is a typical hidden-object title powered by a nice story and beautiful landscapes. The game doesn’t open any new doors, though the puzzles and minigames thrown into the mix do offer a nice distraction from the tediousness of scrutinizing the backgrounds in search of various stuff. In short, if Hidden object games are your fancy, you won’t go wrong with Mushroom Age.
More freebies can be found within, including Love Battle Princess, a surprisingly addictive and fun arcade/puzzle game with unique gameplay elements. Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
It seems that many of the most popular puzzle games involve bright, colorful characters in fun settings. That’s perfectly fine by me, and Moonsters is no exception to the rule. You play a trio of quirky aliens that are lost, hungry and just want to go home. The game feels like something ripped from a Disney cartoon, yet it’s challenging enough to give even the seasoned puzzle gamers pause when trying to score four stars on a level…this is a nice solid puzzle game that deserves a place among the best in the genre.
Once you do give Moonsters a chance, you’ll find a surprisingly addictive game that’s hard to put down. Now that it is free, be sure to grab it for your app collection. Lots more Freebies can be found within, including Burger Queen, Doodle Fit and Knight Defense!
