AppventCalendar's latest freebie is the action platformer Wheeler's Treasure. We're big fans of this game which made an appearance in our Best iPhone Games of November 2009 roundup and garnered a 4 star rating.
Wheeler's Treasure has a feel of part mini-game and part platformer and is one of the most original games we've seen. The goal of the game is to see how many yards you can accompany a wheel through a sidescrolling environment filled with all kinds of obstacles. You can use the wheel to shield yourself from enemies, avoid hazards, swing, jump, and more. Your character is moved using simple swiping gestures, and buttons in the bottom corner of the screen control the use of your items.
See our full review for details, or just go ahead and download it.
We felt the game had a longer learning curve then most pick-up-and-play games but we do recommend you stick with it, as the gameplay skills and strategies will soon become apparent.
