Alright, so posting about iPhone 5 updates might be a little old hat these days, considering the iPhone 5 came out in, um, September of last year... But, you can't miss out on a game this good when it's free. The Blocks Cometh [$0.99] is a great game with a simple premise: Survive as long as you can by avoiding and climbing on top of the endless supply of boxes falling from the sky.

This simple gameplay mechanic is greatly enhanced by a silly amount of playable characters that you can unlock. Each have a slightly different play style, and can make the way you approach the game change substantially. For instance, dudes with a more powerful attack can get away with destroying more blocks, while guys who can jump well are often better off relying on acrobatics to survive.

Oh, and to make things even better, you can play as me, Brad, and Jared in the game if you're a bad enough dude to unlock us. If you missed it the last time the game went free, now's your opportunity to snag it. If you've already got the game on your phone, and you're rocking an iPhone 5, be sure to grab the new widescreen update.

    Fun. But I think they forgot to realign the directional controls to the button graphics in landscape on iPhone 5,

    Once again I have to bring it to attention that publishing 'freebie alerts' like this simply takes extra revenue income away from devs from gamers who may or may not have subsequently legitimately purchased the game. Unless a specific developer has requested that you publish the change in price information all freebie alerts should be withheld.

      Cause exposure is a horrible thing. But then again you show up in these comments like clockwork.

      The price drop/freebie forums must send you into convulsions cause I never see you post there.

      And once again someone has to remind you that NO ONE MAKES THE DEVS MAKE THEIR GAMES FREE!! Sheesh. It's up to them, and here is where they profit from it: people get the game while its free, if they like it, they tell their friends and since the game will probably be back to paid by then, the dev will get a purchase to the friend. It's that simple.

        It's like talking to a brick wall. Don't waste time with you logic and stuff.

    It's a fun little time killer. I would have never come across this game if it wasn't posted here!
