591840_4Red Rocket Games' Mevo & The GrooveRiders [App Store] rhythm platformer is free for the next 24 hours.

This charming rhythm game is presented as a side-scrolling platformer in which your controls consist of two buttons that must be tapped in time with the music. Mevo runs and jumps across the level on his own and your taps must be timed as he runs past the corresponding icons. Miss a note and Mevo will stumble. Miss enough and the game ends.

We really liked it when we first covered it in June, and the game has since seen regular updates with more levels and gameplay modes.

    I just got this and I am quite suprised they gave it away for free considering how fun and polished it is. Go grab this while you can!!!

    So I guess it's just me thinking that this looks quite boring?
    I haven't actually played it, it's from what I've seen from the video.

    Very annoyed by this turn of events, I paid a buck for this game and I hate it. Not surprised it's going free though, it's absolute crap. Mainly because it suffers from MINIGORE SYNDROME. In other words, it's a tiny game that the devs are adding onto bit by bit.
    And seeing as it bills itself as "Mario meets Guitar Hero", it really just doesn't live up to that either.

    May as well get it whilst it's free though

    According to the App store-It's still $.99. Do you think it depends where you are? I'm in California. Maybe it's only free in the Japanese/European markets...Idk. But it's looks sorta cute-I'm always looking for games for my girlfriend to play.

    I think this game could be a lot better. The first someone plays this game, they will think. "Hey, this is pretty cool". But you play it some more and it's just gets repetitive. The left and right arrows are not enough. And if you ask me, the music is quite boring. Sorry, but I'll pass.

    "The power of 'FREE'" being misread strikes again >_>

    Seriously...would it not have made more business sense to first release a lite version of the game to drum up interest rather than drop the price of the full game to "free"?

    not sure why everyone is hating on this game. I thought it was pretty cool. Im a real sucker for music based games. I had considered buying the game, and catching it for free just rules. How can you guys hate on FREE so much? By the way im on east coast us and got it free so the "only europe" theory is out. GRAB IT QUICK

    Am I the only one who is addicted to the game? It offers replayability by having 3 modes per level, and the level designs are pretty creative. Best of all, It's 'FREE'.
