All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.

Universal:

Army Antz™ ($0.99 → Free, 284.6 MB): Command a team of Antz and bring down the queen in Army Antz. It’s for fans of real-time strategy games.

Your mission is to clear the way to the enemy’s lair and take down the queen before they’re able to do the same to you. Army Antz allows you to choose from 13 types of Antz, each with its own class of weapon. You only get five, however, so choose wisely. While in battle you’re able to move each ant separately with a tap, and you can unleash support items when the going gets tough. The game includes 19 arenas, four difficulty levels, and same-device multiplayer on iPad.

Army Antz™ is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 43 ratings.

PixelWakker ($2.99 → Free, 3.2 MB): Turn your photos into pixel art with PixelWakker. It’s for those who enjoy effects apps like Percolator.

PixelWakker allows you to import any photo from your library or capture a new one from within the app. You can then choose from 20 different pixel art effects. You’re able to independently adjust the frequency and intensity of each effect via sliders. Your final creations can be saved or shared via your favorite social networks.

Once you have townspeople roaming the streets, you’ll need to fulfill their needs by growing crops and raising animals.
