iPad owners are in for a treat heading into this weekend, as TowerMadness HD has gone free for today. Not only is it a rare occurrence to get a full fledged iPad editioin of a game for free, but this particular game normally sells for $7.99. TowerMadness HD is a fully 3D tower defense game, and the iPad version features same device multiplayer for head to head competition. We previewed the game back in May shortly before it's release, and you can take a look at our review for the original iPhone version that was released over a year ago for more information.

This short developer video showcases the added multiplayer mode of the iPad version:

Even if you're not typically a fan of tower defense games, there's no reason not to give TowerMadness HD a spin during this free promotion. More information and player impressions can be found in the game's thread in our forums.

    Thank you!!!!! I've been thinking about buying this game, but $7.99 was a bit steep for a game, that I bought and played for on the iPhone.

    For $7.99 i wouldn't have expected to see a list of top in app purchases! No wonder its gone free for a day.

    I think all these free app days are a bit disheartening. Even when I want to specifically support the developer by paying, seeing games costing > $3 suddenly be free make me want to just wait on every game that comes out. A discount makes sense but not free. Release a lite to get people hooked.

    One way to fix the app store is to make all apps free to download but require one-time activation in-app to unlock the full version. That way they can pack the lite and full version in the same entry on the app store and we don't see 3 versions of a lot of apps (iPad versions will likely still need their own page).

    There are 5 in app purchases, and they all seem v poor value for money. But to be fair, the rest of the game is huge and pretty feature packed anyway.
