We’re on day 22 of Blacksmith Games’ Appvent Calendar ‘09 promotion, and today’s primary free game is Sponge Dude. Sponge Dude uses gameplay elements from quite a few genres to create a unique and colorful gaming experience. Sponge Dude, the game's main character, lacks arms and legs, so you will have to utilize a variety of different items, such as bombs and balloons, in order to get Sponge Dude from one end of the level to the other. The game features multi-touch controls, four worlds with 26 levels, and a upbeat soundtrack. If you are into platforming physics-based puzzlers, this one should be right up your alley. Sponge Dude is normally available in the App Store for $1.99, but today it is available for free. The other free games listed below aren't actually included in the Appvent Calendar '09 promotion, but we figured since we already had you here, we would just give you a list of a bunch of other games that were recently made available for free for the holidays.
