Earlier this July, League of Evil [Free] creator Ravenous Games bumped the price of League of Evil back to its normal-ish tag of $1.99. The studio has once again fiddled with the price, though I’d imagine the new one won’t be the cause of too many e-groans. For the next 24 hours the game is $0. Free, guys! Free!

For those of you not in the know, League of Evil is the App Store’s rough equivalent of Team Meat’s imaginative, but sadistic action platform game Super Meat Boy. Boasting tons of levels, an fantastic lo-fi presentation, and a lot of challenge, League of Evil was an easy recommendation for us to make. At this price, it’s sorta a steal.

 

We contacted Ravenous on the Twitters to hear exactly why it decided to cut the cost of the game. I mean, who knows? Ravenous could be celebrating a staffers’ birthday over there and if so, we want in on the back-slapping and cake. In the meanwhile, though, I guess we'll accept the free game.

UPDATE: Shucks, looks like it's just a chart move. "We are just looking to get some more exposure," Ravenous told me via Twitter. "Indies are getting buried when lacking marketing even though the game is good!"

    One of the best plataformers on mobile plataforms ever made. Great graphics, great music, perfect controls. Spend 0 dollars on it is a steal! If you like it, be a sport and give gifts of it when it comes back with price.

    I just downloaded it and is AWESOME. Hurry up and download it while is still free, even though the 1 dollar that normaly costs totally worth it.

    Honestly, one of the few games on the Appstore where the controls are beautifully crafted.

    It honestly controls the same, if not better, than consols/PCs/etc.

    A great game I got and loved a while back. I'm sad to hear it's not selling and the devs had to make the desperation move of offering it for free in hoping it will get some renewed attention.

    I feel bad for the dev's. I'm playing this for the first time. The controls and gameplay are amazing. It controls just as well as a PC/Console controller, and I'm not exaggerating.

    I'd say it was my favourite iPod game out of over 200 (including Infinity Blade, Storm in a Teacup, Modern Combat 2), but I wouldn't want to sound like a fanboy. Really reminds me of Megaman X, with the mechanics and flow of the game (wall jumping, air dashing, etc.). Great game!
