Freebie Alert: Legendary Wars for iPhone and iPad now free for limited time

Legendary Wars is celebrating its one million downloads milestone and has dropped to free this weekend for both the iPhone and iPad. Offering gamers a variety of gameplay modes, Legendary Wars combines a number of genres to give it a blend of Action/Strategy/RPG. A favourite of ChiffaN’s, he gave the game a Kiss It rating in his review:

Whether you’re a fan of the genre or are just looking for an interesting game to try it out, Legendary Wars certainly is a title worthy of attention. With a boatload of features, both borrowed from other successful titles and dreamed up anew, it is definitely the current crowning jewel of the Action/Strategy subgenre on the App Store and a worthy addition to anyone’s app collection.
