NimbleBit is holding another Freebie Friday on April 23rd, this time the free game being offered is their newest release, Dizzypad for the iPhone. It's already gone free for those of you who want to jump on it early.

We gave Dizzypad 4 stars back in February for being a fun casual game.

The goal is to simply get as far as you can while jumping from lily pad to lily pad. Each lily pad is spinning in place, and a well timed tap on the screen will launch you forward. The trick is to wait until you are facing the right direction and off you go. Sounds simple, eh?

In addition to making their iPhone version of Dizzypad free for the day, Nimblebit has announced that Dizzypad is coming to the iPad as well. The iPad version of Dizzypad will be freemium, where you will get the classic game mode, 30 unlockable frog skins, and plus+ with awards and leaderboards included. In addition, there will also be three new game modes available to purchase through DLC for $1.99 each:

Sliders: A fun twist on the classic mode. Test your timing with pads that slide back and forth instead of rotating in place!
Memory: Be a froggy matchmaker and test your memory by picking frog pairs. Guaranteed to sharpen your wits!
Battle: Duke it out on the pond with a friend in this 2 player mode! Try your best to gobble each other up until your frog grows the largest.

Dizzypad for the iPad has already been submitted, so expect to see it soon in the AppStore.

Here's a video of the iPhone version in action:

    So is this gonna get banned by Apple because it uses the word 'pad'? Because Steve Jobs himself has emailed app developers whose apps are banned for that very reason, telling them they were stupid for using a trademarked word - even though his device is called the iPad, not the Pad.

      this game came out way back in january, the people at nimblebit have been working hard on this game for a long time so they decided to name it "dizzypad" not knowing that their actualy would be an ipad.

      They’re probably fine since the name obviously refers to lily pads, and not to the iPad hardware.

      (Not that Apple should worry about either one. What about all the apps that were let through with an “i” name? That seems more like an implication of Apple endorsement than “pad.” Actually, Apple should force all “i” apps to change just for being annoying :D )

        It's not just for the fun of it, or even trade mark, they want to keep people from calling their apps anything Pad. It's to make sure customers do not get confused by iPhone apps called Pad. It's likely that some would think that a game called DrinkPad would be an iPad app.
