Donut Games, the casual iPhone and iPod touch game developer, has gone absolutely crazy. They have decided to offer three of their games for free for this weekend only, so you must move fast. The three games are: Spikey's Bounce Around, Lucky Coins, and Rat On The Run. Spikey's Bounce Around ($1.99 -> Free): The object of the game is to bounce Spikey around a variety of environments in order to free the magic butterflies that are trapped inside of jars. It's sort of like Bumper Stars, just with a spiny character that sticks to walls. The game features 50 levels and star rankings for each one, so you can always try to go back and better your rank. Lucky Coins ($.99 -> Free): Lucky Coins is a mix between plinko and pinball. The object of the game is to drop a golden coin in hopes of hitting as many items on the way down as possible. The levels also contain magnets that grab your coin and allow you to shoot it in a different direction, which gives the game elements of both luck and skill. It features four arcade and 20 challenge boards. Rat On The Run ($.99 -> Free): A simple platformer that has you trying to fatten up the main character, Ratty, by collecting cheese doodles. The game features an Arcade mode with eight levels to clear, and a Challenge mode with 15 levels. It also has a bonus game called Rat On A Scooter, a distance game that will have you racing, jumping, and honking to collect cheese doodles as well. Ratty apparently really loves cheese doodles. All three of these Donut Games will be available for free through the weekend. Embedded below are gameplay trailers for Spikey's Bounce Around and Lucky Coins.
