Freebies Roundup: Mushroom Age and More free for Limited time…

V-day is here and we’ve got another freebies roundup prepared for you. G5 Entertainment’s solid hidden-object games Mushroom Age and Mushroom Age HD is now free (previously $2.99/$4.99 respectively) for the day. Chiffan reviewed this one a while back and had this to say:

Mushroom Age is a typical hidden-object title powered by a nice story and beautiful landscapes. The game doesn’t open any new doors, though the puzzles and minigames thrown into the mix do offer a nice distraction from the tediousness of scrutinizing the backgrounds in search of various stuff. In short, if Hidden object games are your fancy, you won’t go wrong with Mushroom Age.

More freebies can be found within, including Love Battle Princess, a surprisingly addictive and fun arcade/puzzle game with unique gameplay elements. Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

If the cold February chill doesn’t kill you, your bruding-er half will. Recently, my church, The Globe’s English Evangelical Papal Ministry Synagogue, has been handing out iPod touches loaded with My Virtual Girlfriend to stem the tide of February divorces, and good thing, too: every man here has at least two girlfriends AND a wife. It can get messy.
