aurora_feint_demonsJason Citron and Danielle Cassley of Aurora Feint Inc. are, for a short time, offering their normally $4.99 multiplayer puzzle PRG Aurora Feint II: Arena Daemons [App Store] as a free download.

For those not familiar with the original Aurora Feint, it was one of the first games to appear on the iPhone back in July and won a huge following due to its polish and complexity (not to mention also being free). The developers are following up the success of the original with a new pay version that builds on the existing world and adds head-to-head competition into the mix.

Aurora Feint II: Arena Daemons, as it is called, contains all the components of the original game which revolve around a typical color-matching game but set in a role playing environment. Players can earn crystals while "mining" and subsequently level up and purchase additional tools to add to your abilities.

The game offers multiplayer support, but rather than "synchronous" head to head competitions, the developers are proud of the unique "asynchronous" system they have developed that seems well suited for casual gaming. This means that you can sit down and play against opponents who aren't actually online at the same time as you are.

Whether or not you've played the original, now is the time to give Aurora Feint II: Arena Daemons a try.

    Free is good. As long as it works, anyway. "The Aurora Feint servers are experiencing difficulty with your Apple device. Please try again later."

    • MilchMann

      I tried again a few seconds later...and...then it worked ^^

  • rich_952000

    Yeah, I'm getting the "try back later" message too. I imagine the response to the free offer may have overwhelmed their servers , for the time being.

  • ajblue

    its daemons not demons

  • Noman

    Cool, this was one of those like to get it, but not worth paying for games.

  • http://- J

    as i played Aurora Feint, their first game, i belive their games have much more depth and sparkles then other titles, much more expensive

    dead wrong Noman, dead wrong

    • Noman

      I'm enjoying it a lot, I just don't play puzzle games very much so I wasn't going to pay 4.99 for it.

  • stargazer713

    No longer free at 12:30PM 23rd. Now $4.99. I guess it was only free for a few hours or until a certain number were downloaded. My loss.

  • Willzyx

    Free for an hour? Gee, thanks a bunch, guys.

    Publicity stunt. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

    • Tony

      Willzyx: *facepalm* It was free since last night, TouchArcade was slow to posting it. Don't claim because something isn't free when you get to it, that it was a publicity stunt.

  • Davidprimer

    Woohoo I got it while it was free ๐Ÿ™‚

  • nsolo1717

    this game is amazing , i've had it for over a year and it's never taken off my iphone even though i don't play it as much as i used to. And for free, you can't beat it , go dl it now

  • Richard

    Too bad Touch Arcade didn't get the note out earlier. It looks like a game I would have loved to have picked up.

  • Prestner

    Just like the original, all it does is crash.

  • EsCalibur

    yep I got it for free but on 3GS it's not working at all! Game crashes all the time. I tried to reintall it and still and crashes from the main menu, from the registration menu. Everywhere

  • fearless

    On iPod Touch 3GS 32GB it works fine. No crashes yet...

  • P0tent1al

    Shouldn't the TA article be updated to say this is no longer free...

  • Whosatm

    I loved the Lite version, but this one crashes every 5-10 seconds after start up on my 64gb 3rd touch.

  • Eros Resmini

    Eros from Aurora Feint here. Sorry to all that are having issues...We had some server fixes go in that were buggy causing several players issues. That combined with an overwhelming response to the demand made our server farm cry mercy. All of the above are addressed now so please let us know if you're still having issues and we'll get on them. The game was release for free as part of our 'Free Game of the Day' spot on the OpenFeint App...we didn't even let TA know we were going free! (Hint: Download the OF app, we have paid games that go free periodically)

  • That Guy

    I must've seen this article at the perfect time, cause I saw it on touch arcade, then went and downloaded it for free, no problems. It's fun so far, kind of reminds me of Meteos, the DS game.
