Here is a very nice treat as we head into the weekend. 1337 Game Design's Devil's Attorney [$2.99] is free for the first time ever. Originally launching back in September of last year, Devil's Attorney took the strategic turn-based battling that you might find in any number of RPG or TBS titles and applied it to the courtroom. Rather than hurling magic spells, you're using Objections to cool down the prosecution or Reverse Psychology to get key witnesses against your client to turn on themselves. Being that you're the Devil's attorney and all, your ultimate goal is to get your less-than-desirable clients off scot-free by using every dirty trick you can think of.

Besides a really strong turn-based battling system, Devil's Attorney also hits the nail on the head in terms of visuals and personality. Your character is just the sort of slime ball attorney that you would imagine, a veritable Saul Goodman for you Breaking Bad fans out there. Due to this, the game isn't just enjoyable based on its mechanics alone, but will really suck you in with its wit and humor that permeates every nook and cranny. I mean, just check out the cheese-tastic trailer for Devil's Attorney to see what I mean.

We absolutely loved Devil's Attorney in our review, and it came very close in the running for our game of the year last year, landing in our Honorable Mentions. What I'm getting at is that Devil's Attorney is good, like really good, and it's completely free right now and doesn't contain any IAP or anything. It's just a full, awesome game for free. What a treat. Definitely snag it during the freebie promotion and drop by our forums for more impressions and discussion from the TouchArcade community.

    Though it's not a difficult game, I found myself playing through to the end multiple times simply for the fun of it. Hopefully this freebie is the sign of a possible upcoming sequel....

    Why is this not called "Devil's Advocate?"

    • themostunclean

      An advocate is not the same thing as an attorney and it sounds funnier. Plus the name "Devil's Advocate" has already been used and would be copyright infringement.

      • AlpacaLips

        "Advocate" can mean several things, but in some contexts it is synonymous with "attorney." It would be an IP violation only if the term is used for a similar product, and there's no other app in the App Store with that name. Most importantly, "Devil's Advocate" is a common phrase that is more memorable. Whatever. I don't even like these kind of games.

  • anabolicMike

    Thanks for the heads up. I downloaded it and tried it for a bit there. Seems like it could be a bit entertaining.

  • Papa Deuce

    I like it just fine....one case per sitting. I can't imagine spending half an hour at a time with it. I think I am on my 5th case. Hopefully it gets a little deeper.

    • CzechCongo

      It doesn't get a lot deeper, but there is some variety in the situations you're given.

      I rolled through the whole thing without many problems on Normal difficulty. Hard is a bit more challenging.

    This game is really cute. I spent a lot of time to play it and really enjoyed it. Graphics look very stable character and I enjoyed our experience with

  • rabidnz

    The difficulty settings suck, make you just restart alot instead of applying different strategy. Thats the only thing I can bitch about, this game is a beauty, the sequel is going to be next level! Hope they really flesh out the skill tree !

  • Bruciato

    Download asap this pearl. This game is awesome! Dialogues are funny and a "match" take really a couple of minutes so it's perfect both for 5 minutes breaks and for relaxed playing.

  • Dailion Ando

    Very nice game, downloaded and playing.
