Free Lite Versions: Knights Onrush, iSamurai, Vans SK8, StoneLoops!

knights_onrush_02Here are a collection of notable Lite versions of games that have come out in the past week or so. Each is probably worth your time to download. Game titles link directly to the App Store.

  • Knights Onrush Free – More Games’ take on castle defense. We posted some favorable impressions about this game when it first came out:

    The most succinct way I can describe Knights Onrush is castle defense meets Pocket God. The way all of the different defenses are animated really reminds me of the different punishments you can put your Pygmies through. The enemies are varied enough that you need to use different tactics to defeat them, and as you progress through the levels the choices of when to use which defenses add an unexpected layer of strategy to the game.

    I’ve never really been one for castle defense games, but I’ve oddly found myself really enjoying Knights Onrush.

  • iSamurai Lite – First demoed at the iPhone Launch Party, Toy Kite’s sword fighting game uses the iPhone’s accelerometer to virtually sword fight with your opponent. A unique iPhone game that can be surprisingly fun.
  • Vans SK8: Pool Service Lite – A free light version that lets you try out the controls in this skateboarding game. Tricks are performed using the iPhone’s swipe controls while the accelerometer steers your skateboarder.
  • StoneLoops! of Jurassica Lite – We really loved the full version of this game when we reviewed it. The full version remains at only $0.99.

    StoneLoops! of Jurassica sets the current standard for fantastic match three marble shooting games and is hard to pass up at the promotional price. It’s incredibly fun, and comes packed with enough content to keep you busy for quite some time.
