In celebration of the recent release of Dark Nebula - Episode Two [99¢], developer 1337 Game Design has dropped the price of the original installment to free. If you don't own Dark Nebula - Episode One [Free] yet, you seriously need to stop whatever it is you're doing and download it. Unfortunately it's over the 20MB limit for 3G app downloads so iPhone users will have to find some WiFi, but thankfully the game will be free all weekend so you've got plenty of time.

On the surface, the Dark Nebula games are just tilt controlled ball rollers, but in actuality they are so much more than that. The production value of both games is flat out insane, with amazing graphics, excellent sound, and masterful level design. Episode One will likely only take you an hour to complete, but it will be one fantastic ride.

We have reviewed both Episode One and Episode Two if you want to check them out, but really, you should just download the first while it's free and immediately pick up the second if you enjoy it as I think the sequel is even better than the original.

    Both episodes are fantastic and 1337 deserve whatever praise comes their way (and more). Eagerly awaiting episode 3.

      Just curious, do the speed rounds make anyone else feel like vomiting?

    An absolutely incredible game - and the sequel is even better. I do not understand the developer's desire to let these games sell for so cheap (and for letting this one go for FREE), but I'm certainly not complaining.

    Excellent, excellent games. Get 'em both, and let the developers know how well they have done.

    I had already the ep 2 targeted, try this ep 1 free show I was right and I got ep 2 instantly. If you ask, much much better than Labyrinth 2.

    This trailer is WAYYY over done for a ball roller. Talk about crying wolf

    • Alex.B

      How is that crying wolf? You're getting exactly what they are advertising.

      • menom

        I think Alex.B you misunderstand Gload

        It seems to me he merely hope that people will talk about a crying wolf

        So let me begin...

        I saw a wolf crying once - weird thing is, it never once dabbed at its eyes. Just stood there crying. Funniest thing I ever saw....

        on another note, this game looks very good - cheers for the info

    Both parts are fantastic and part 2 has some of the best controls in an iPhone game to date. Visuals are also a highlight in both iterations.
