Eric Tong is celebrating the birth of his first daughter by putting his well loved shooter 2079 on sale for free.

2079 was one of the first Geometry Wars-like games to appear in the App Store back in November and has remained a forum favorite here at TouchArcade. If you've never picked up the game, now's your chance.

This is an old video of the game from back in November:

    Giving away your game is much cooler than passing out cigars!

    Congratulations on your baby, and please improve the controls :) . Seems a little frustrating in the video.

    I can't believe this game isn't more popular. It's much, much better than I thought it would be. Controls are great, both firing and tilt-to-move. Bombs almost never go off accidentally. In addition to the two main game modes, the "secret cube level" is also mind-bending fun that should not be missed. Thanks to the dev for making it free, and congrats on being a dad.
