While pretty much everyone and their brother knows Angry Birds, there is another franchise that's just about as much of a household name due to its success on mobile. It's the Cut the Rope franchise from Zepto Lab, and for the first time ever both the original Cut the Rope [$2.99] and the iPad-only Cut the Rope HD [$4.99 (HD)] have both gone free for the next week...

Right on schedule, as mentioned earlier this week is the epilogue update to The Room [$0.99 (HD) / Free]. It hit at about 4:00 AM today, so we haven't had a whole lot of time to go through it yet, but I can say with complete confidence that any additional content for The Room is a very good thing...

Freebie Alert: Cutesy Puzzler 'Joining Hands' Goes Free Ahead of Sequel's Launch this Week

One of the cuter and more unique puzzle games that hit the App Store a couple of years ago has just gone free for the first time ever to celebrate the impending launch of the sequel. Joining Hands [$2.99] is a hex-based puzzle game from 10tons Ltd. that tasks you with getting a colorful cast of characters to, well, join hands...

Late last year we first got our hands on Gameloft's Duo Gamer game controller and it really left us scratching our collective heads. First off, it's super plastic-y feeling- Almost to the point that you wondered whether or not you were using their final hardware design. Also, it only worked with five specific Gameloft games. Then when you added the $80 price tag in to the mix, it just seemed insane. It didn't take more than a couple months for the price to get slashed in half, but even at $40 the purchase was hard to swallow...

Heads up: Hunters: Episode One [$4.99 / $4.99 (HD)], the game that kinda put Rodeo Games on the map, is free (again) for a limited time. It's been offered up for the generous price of zero dollars a few times over this past year, but we're guessing a few of you may have missed out on those. Here's your chance to make good on that...

Freebie Alert: Original 'Smash Cops' Goes Free as Sequel 'Smash Bandits' Soft-launches in Singapore App Store

Hey Singapore, if you have always felt jealous that Canada, Australia and New Zealand got all the soft-launch love, then this one is for you. Last week we debuted the first trailer for Smash Bandits, the sequel to Hutch Games' popular cops-and-robbers top-down combat racer Smash Cops [$4.99], and today the game has soft-launched in the Singapore App Store. Why soft-launch in a smaller market? Well, the game is free-to-play, and Hutch will likely be looking to test their systems and make some adjustments before releasing Smash Bandits into the wild worldwide...

It's true we have an embarrassment of fantastic platformers on iOS, from traditional exploration style games to puzzle platformers to the brutal trial-and-error style of speedrun platformers. That latter camp is where Ravenous Games' League of Evil series comfortably lies, and right now you can snatch up every game in the series for just a dollar each during a limited time sale...

CAVE are among the best when it comes to the fairly niche bullet-hell shooter genre, and they've been pumping out hit after hit on consoles and in arcades for nearly two decades. They've also found great success porting their hit games to the iOS platform, where the top-down scrolling shooter has thrived making a transition to a button-less touchscreen. They've even released a couple of original mobile titles like Mushihimasama Bug Panic and Dodonpachi Maximum. Basically what i'm trying to say is that CAVE plus the mobile platform has brought forth many excellent games for us to play, and as a way to say thanks to all their fans the company is throwing a week-long sale on nearly all their iOS titles. Here's a full list...

When Square Enix released The World Ends With You on the Nintendo DS several years back, it was notable for its more contemporary setting of life as a teenager in modern-day Japan, as opposed to the RPG trope of a ragtag group of kids embarking on a journey to save the world from evil in some fantasy setting. It was also notable for its intriguing dual-screen combat system, thanks to the two screens of the Nintendo DS...

Weekends are almost always a good time for sales. Oh who am I kidding, pretty much every day is filled with cool sales on the App Store. However, this weekend is Quakecon 2013 and to celebrate id software has put their entire library of iOS games on sale, and it's the first time they've had any action in about a year. I'm hoping that this means they might change their mind and start dipping back into mobile. Also 2K Games is throwing a Mobile Summer Sale on some of their top titles, which will run through Monday. Finally, there's a smattering of random sales on some other cool games you should be checking out to cure your boredom over the weekend...

As we pointed out yesterday, XCOM: Enemy Unknown [$19.99] is seeing great success and is currently on sale, but just to top things off a nice big update has just arrived for the game as well...

When Twisted Pixel finally brought their critically acclaimed platformer Ms. Splosion Man [$2.99] to the App Store, I was overjoyed. It ended up being sort of a double-edged sword though, as Twisted Pixel opted for a somewhat fractured pay model for the mobile version of the game...

'Bad Piggies' Goes Free In App Of The Week Promotion

RED ALERT: Bad Piggies [$0.99 / $0.99 (HD)] is Apple's App of The Week. As such, it's now available at the price of free instead of not-free (or 99¢, if you're keeping track at home)...

While few of us will ever get to experience what it feels like to be the tiniest thief in the world, people who haven't purchased 5 Ants's Tiny Thief [Free] yet will certainly start to feel like bandits after this morning. Rovio Mobile is offering the 5-star point-and-click for a reduced price starting today. It's now just 99 cents instead of $2.99...

Freebie Alert: 'Minigore 2: Zombies' Goes Free to Celebrate 4-year Anniversary of the Original 'Minigore'

Last December, Mountain Sheep took everything good about their cult-classic dual-stick shooter Minigore [$0.99 / $1.99 (HD)] and expanded on it for a sequel. The result was the familiar arena-based shooting we all knew and loved spiced up with more enemies, more crazy weaponry, more playable characters, more... of just everything...
