Freebie Alert: Reckless Getaway and Puzzle Quest Chapter 1 now free for limited time

Two fantastic iPhone games have gone free today. Polarbit’s Reckless Getaway (the “sequel” to Reckless Racing), my favourite pickup-and-play title on iOS this year, has you weaving in-and-out of traffic like a (mad) professional getaway driver. The superb graphics, tight controls, unlockable chapters and mindlessly fun gameplay make this one of the best iDevice games around. Just see for yourself why this one is so darn addictive.

Now a drastic change of pace – Puzzle Quest Chapter 1, has also dropped to free. The game that popularized match 3 style of play with RPG elements, Puzzle Quest had graced the Nintendo DS and PSP before making its appearance on the iPhone. Now that Chapter 1 is free, ch 2&3 can be unlocked for $0.99 each. If PQ tickles your fancy, be sure to check out Puzzle Quest 2 (TMA Review) as well.

Endloop’s Chicken Balls, brought to you by the brotherly dev duo of Garry and Ken Seto (best known for their popular iMockups for iPad app), is now FREE for the very first time. One of the craziest and most fun Angry Birds-inpired games around, Chicken Balls comes loaded with 50 levels, power ups and addictive pachinko/breakout style gameplay.

You play Crash, the BRAVEST chicken this side of New Mexico. It’s the summer of 1947, you’ve just come back from the war and had hoped to hang up your flight cap for good. When a UFO crash lands just outside the nearby town of Roswell you knew you’d have to take to the skies – one more time.

If you’re a fan of slingshot physics puzzlers, Chicken Balls comes highly recommended and shouldn’t be missed. And in other freebie news, G5 Entertainment’s Stand O’Food is also now free!
