Freebie Alert: Hotel Dash and Soap Opera Dash now Free (for limited time)

Last week, we saw Cooking Dash (TMA Review) and Wedding Dash (TMA Review) both go free on the App Store. Now, Playfirst’s other two Dash titles have joined the freebie ranks: Hotel Dash and Soap Opera Dash. Eric previously reviewed the former and gave it a Grab It rating:

Hotel Dash is the latest entry in the series, and it’s upped the ante in several ways.  If you’re a time management veteran you’ll feel right at home and appreciate the additional challenge, but if you’re new to the whole concept this might not be the best place to start.  So far I’m loving it, and I can’t wait to see what the next installment in the franchise has to offer.

No time frame has been given as to how long this latest offer will last, though judging from last week, they’ll likely stay free for the next 2 days.

Hotel Dash PlayFirst, Hotel Dash (TMA Review), 80.3 MB – Free
Soap Opera Dash PlayFirst, Soap Opera Dash, 75.4 MB – Free

10 New App Store Games To Watch [Oct. 25 - 31]

What an interesting week this was.  Being Halloween week there was naturally an influx of zombie games.  However, the big news came in the revitalization of a 10 year old Dreamcast game – ChuChu Rocket.  This puzzle game is available for all iDevices, sports plenty of game play modes, and allows you to play 4 players on the same device if you own an iPad.  If you’re into galaxy spanning crusades then Fishlabs has you covered with Galaxy on Fire 2, the sequel to their popular 3D shooter / simulation game Galaxy On Fire 3D.  Gun Bros is one of the latest dual stick shooters to hit iOS devices, and it’s unique 2 player game system allows you to wrack up experience even when you’re not actually playing the game.  And, if you haven’t gotten enough of the Duke Nukem wanna-be Barry Steakfries there’s Age of Zombies, the “re-imagining” of their popular 2D sprinter Monster Dash.
