iPhone And iPad Apps Gone Free: Luxor, Monster RPG 2, Sentinel 2 And More

August 3, 2010

Today's list features one of the most popular marble shooters to ever hit the App Store, a new take on old school 16-bit RPGs, an app that will teach your children how to draw dinosaurs, and much more. Disclaimer: All prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Luxor ($.99 -> Free): One of the most popular marble shooters in the App Store (since StoneLoops! was removed).  The game features 88 levels of marble shooting fun, and precise touch or tilt controls that will allow you to match three spheres without a problem.  Tap to shoot, swipe to change sphere color, and collect the falling power-ups to blaze through the Plus+ leaderboards. Luxor is available for free today only (8/3). It has a four-star rating, and a total of 937 ratings. Boxboy Escape ($.99 -> Free): A simplistic turn-based puzzle game that requires you to dig holes in the grass in order to keep the square-headed Boxboy from escaping.  Sliding your finger across the grass will select a tile, and lifting your finger up will remove it.  Once you corner Boxboy, you move on to the next, more difficult level. Boxboy Escape is available for free today only (8/3). It has a three-and-a-half-star rating, and a total of seven ratings. Monster RPG 2 ($2.99 -> Free): A turn-based RPG that resembles some of your favorite 16-bit games of yore.  The game features 19 locations to explore, nine adventurers that will join your party, over 90 monsters to battle, 18 spells, and tons of loot. Monster RPG 2 is available for free today only (8/3). It has a three-star rating, and a total of 38 ratings. Run Kattie ($.99 -> Free): You must help Kattie the cat run home by controlling her left and right movement and by jumping using on-screen buttons.  The game features items to collect in order to boost your score, power-ups, all kinds of obstacles, three themes, and a total of nine stages. Run Kattie is available for free until August 10th. It has a three-star rating, and a total of 10 ratings. Learn to Draw Dinosaurs ($.99 -> Free): An app that teaches your children (adults can give it a try too) how to draw a handful of different dinosaurs.  Each drawing shows you the basic outline of a dinosaur and allows you to turn on a grid for even more precision.  Just follow along with the steps and you should have a perfectly drawn dinosaur in no time. Learn to Draw Dinosaurs is available for free for a limited time. It has a four-star rating, and a total of seven ratings. Sentinel 2: Earth Defense ($1.99 -> Free): One of the better tower defense games available in the App Store. The sequel to Origin8’s popular tower defense game, Sentinel: Mars Defense, builds on everything the original did right by adding a ton of new weapons, enemies, and gampeplay elements.  The game also features OpenFeint, so you can view global leaderboards, earn achievements, and chat with your friends. Sentinel 2: Earth Defense is available for free today only (8/3). It has a three-and-a-half-star rating, and a total of 105 ratings. Universal: Word Micester ($.99 -> Free): A unique game where you must form a specific number of words in a limited amount of time to find cheese.  The game features three modes of play, 40 pieces of cheese to find, and stat tracking. Word Micester is available for free for an undisclosed amount of time. It has a three-and-a-half-star rating, and a total of 42 ratings. Developers: If you are a developer who would like to get your app included in our “Apps Gone Free” daily lists, here’s our basic set of rules:
  • The app must be free for at least one whole day.
  • It must have at least a three-star rating at the time it goes free.
  • The app must not have been free numerous times (3+) over the last six months.
To submit an app, simply send a request to [email protected] with the subject “Apps Gone Free.”  Please include the name of the app, a link to it in the App Store, when you intend to offer the app for free and anything else you would like to share.  We will take it from there.
