FAA’s Free Daily App – GemCraft

We’re working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out.

GemCraft is an interesting tower defense game that has been played online more than 90 million times.

Your aim in this addictive title is pretty much the same as it is in every other TD in the genre: build defensive obelisks and prevent waves of invading monsters from reaching your base (a mana crystal, on this occasion). In GemCraft, you do this using eight magical jewels that all have special abilities. You can combine these gems and craft new multi-coloured crystals that boast even more potent powers.

FAA’s Free App of the Day – Burrito Bison

We’re working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out.

Burrito Bison is a rather strange game.

You’re tasked with launching an extremely chiselled gentleman as far as you possibly can through colourful candy-filled environments. Your aim is to squish and squash seemingly endless waves of fruity gummy bears in order to gain enough speed to smash through doors and escape from the dreadful (but incredibly tasty) Candy Land.

Naturally, this game is chock full of power-ups that will make your mission a little easier. These include rockets, a glider, explosive chilli peppers, and one of those pogo stick things that you probably played with as a kid.
