Titles like Capcom’sÂ STREET FIGHTER IVÂ andÂ MONSTER HUNTER Dynamic Hunting,Â Modern Combat 2Â andÂ Inotia 3Â to name a few are part of this $0.99 list. Some price drops are good for only a day or so, while others until the end of August. Check out the complete roundup after the break.
Yesterday, we saw a quality game go free inÂ geoDefense Swarm. Today, PopCap is offeringÂ Bejeweled 2 + BlitzÂ as a freebie for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Most of you likely have played this match 3 on one platform or another, and perhaps even consider it among the most addictive in the genre. No word on why and for how long this offer will last, so if you still don’t have Bejeweled on your iDevice, be sure to grab it ASAP.

geoDefense SwarmÂ (TMA Review), the follow up to the critically acclaimed TD gameÂ geoDefenseÂ (TMA Review) — one which I still consider a favourite of mine in the genre — has dropped in price to free for a limited time. Packed with challenging levels and eye candy visuals, Swarm will certainly keep you glued to your iDevice for quite sometime. Here’s a blurb from our review:
In short, geoDefense Swarm is a treat. It combines the best of the classic tried and tested geoDefense goodness and the deep strategy of Open Field TD games. The stylish graphics are like visual candy and the performance is excellent, even on a 2G/3G iPhone. I would definitely say that the sequel of geoDefense has not shamed itâ€™s original one bit and is a must have for any fan of the genre.
If you remotely enjoy tower defense games and have yet to playÂ geoDefense Swarm, do yourself a favour and grab it while it’s free.
