Apologies for yet another free iOS post, but Gamevil’s one of the more respected mobile developers out there with mobile hits like Air Penguin to their name. And, while there are tons of Korean Action RPGs in the App Store, not many of them are free.
Fair warning, Advena does have a “secondary currency” called Vena points that costs real world money. Gamevil’s got a solid reputation for not gouging their customers, so it’s probably safe. Still, your mileage may vary.
I haven’t played it (aside from starting it up to grab some screens), but App Store reviews range from “cool” to “kool.” So, chances are it falls somewhere between one of those two.
Today, Electronic Arts’ “Daily Deal” holiday special is Spy Mouse, the spiritual successor to Flight Control, by Firemint for the rock solid price of nothing. I used to have this saying, “Anything free is good to me.” It was lame, but it mostly holds true. And that’s your “No One Gives a Rat’s Ass, Fade” fact of the day.
In what has to be the nearest equivalent to “HP/MP restored! But you’re still hungry!”, Zombie Parkour Runner has received an update that fixes the only problem I had with the game (it’s short), but you have to pay to play it.
I get it. They don’t have the insane numbers that Angry Birds or Cut the Rope have and could use some more revenue, but the anemic 24 stages aren’t likely to boost their numbers (currently under 80,000 if one were to use GameCenter leaderboards as a gauge). Potential buyers may be scared off by the potential charges every time there’s a potential update. Potentially.
For the second day in a row (and the third time this week), Electronic Arts is giving away a game. This time, though, it’s an iOS gaming staple in Firemint’s Flight Control. You may remember it being one of the five games featured in the recent music video by Hey, Geronimo!
Pick it up today and keep an eye on EA’s Daily Deals page throughout the holidays. EA has an extensive library of games on iOS, many of them well worth playing, and it’s hard to argue with free.
Electronic Arts’ side-scrolling parkour game, Mirror’s Edge, is free today. It’s not everyday that EA gives a game away, so maybe you should look into it.
If you’d prefer not to spend time leaping with Faith (oh, NOW I get it), you might well look into Gamevil’s Hybrid, which is also free right now.
Neither game is going to knock your socks off, but both are worth having at that price.
