I can’t think of a better way to come down off a post-keynote afterglow than a bundle of freebies to download. The standard free game disclaimer is in effect here in that nearly all of these free promotions are for a limited time, and while they are all free as of this writing, they can return to paid at any time. If any of these games sound interesting to you, it’s probably better to download them sooner rather than later. And of course, as always, for a full listing of paid games that went free, stop by AppShopper.
Hoggy, Free A cute puzzle platformer that we enjoyed quite a bit in our review. Hoggy comes loaded with an oodle of levels to complete but if the game leaves you wanting more, there’s even a 99¢ DLC level pack to download.
Veggie Samurai, $0.99 The war between whether Veggie Samurai or Fruit Ninja [99¢] is the better game has been waging on our forums for quite some time now. Here’s your chance to download one of them for free to see for yourself.
Rebirth of Fortune, $0.99 Heavily influenced by Tactics Ogre and Final Fantasy Tactics, this strategy RPG seems to have a surprising amount of depth. The graphics are great, and there’s even local multiplayer.
bitFLIP HD: Intense Puzzle Action, Free The iPhone version of bitFlip [99¢] is still a paid app, but if you’ve got an iPad make sure to grab this cool multi-layered puzzle game. It even has single device multiplayer which is a lot of fun if you’ve got someone else to play with.
Irritating Game, Free The iPhone port of a free Flash game with the same name. In Irritating Game you have to deal with two balls that move independent of each other on two different paddles. As promised, gameplay is irritating, but oddly appealing.
Fayju Ball, $0.99 An incredibly cool puzzle game where you must roll balls of different colors in to matching holes. What blew my mind the first time I played the game was that some of these puzzles require you to hold the phone upside down to mall the ball roll towards the screen. Definitely give this one a try.
TowerMadness, $2.99 This game has already been free a few times already, so here’s your chance to grab it if you missed it before. Tower Madness is a free open-field tower defense game with a bunch of maps, endless mode, 9 towers with 5 upgrades each, and additional level packs available via DLC.
