Beat It!

Glu games has made their musical puzzler Beat It! free for a limited time. See our full review for details:

Beat It!, a music-based game from Glu Games Inc, is different from other music games, not only in the way that it presents its music for interactive play, but in the way that players' brains must function in order to be successful. Instead of playing along with a predetermined song, players are asked to recreate a short, looping beat that is played for them several times in quick succession before the beginning of each level.

We actually really enjoyed the this game and highly recommend every pick it up for free.


Aqua Forest 2

Aqua Forest 2 is also free but for today only.

This game challenges you to guide a drop of water from start to finish across a variety of beautiful photorealistic levels, including leaves, mossy rocks, flower petals, and more. Simply tilt your phone to make the water move, thanks to the technology of the "PHYZIOS Engine™ Casual" 2D multi-physics engine.

It's hard to say we highly recommend the game, but its worth a free download to see the water droplet physics effects.

    If you like the physics in Aqua Forest 2 Morning Dew, check out some of their other apps including PHYZIOS Studio and Marbling. Much more interaction and fun to be had with those.

      My 4.5 year old daughter loves Aqua Forest which is much more interesting than Aqua Forest 2. The original is like a physics playground. Very fun and engrossing but mostly open ended play.

    I highly doubt that Beat It! will be free for a limited time.The only way they could do that is if the removed it from the store and put up another lite.

    It's free, I don't know why but it's called Beat It! Free and not Beat It! (which is also in the app store). It says it's the full version though. Not sure why they uploaded a brand new free version (with the same content) rather than changing the price on the current one.

    I find the Beat it! promotion a bit confusing, but I'll give it a go, it looks like a good game.

    Castle Fantasy, which was given a very positive review here, is also free at the moment and will be until the next update.

    Glu is beginning to make ads-versions of some of their games. They have also done it with their game Bonsai Blast, which btw is a great game i think. :)

    What a JOKE "Beat It! free for a limited time" and you will notice it is supported by ads.

    Talk about misleading.

    I notice the real full version is still $2.99

      "Waaaah! Waaaah!" - You were saying? 'You get what you pay for.'

      I bought Beat It! the day it was released, and it was money well spent. Way better than all of the other me-too clones of the rhythm genre.

        I don't think anyone is criticizing the game or developers, but rather the author of the misleading article.

    You guys should chill out! The free version of "Beat it", which is now the full version, only SUPPORTED BY ADS, is AWESOME! The ads are pathetic, and hardly get in the way! If you have any sense you'll snap up 'Beat It! FREE' while you can!!

    Tried it. Besides the PLENTY of ads I don't realize what the gameplay should be. Couldn't get past level 3 although I tried hard and I am pretty comfortable with sound editors and sequencers.
