Disclaimer: All prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Poppit ($1.99 -> Free): An orb launching game where you must make like-colored bubbles collide a number of times to pop them. The number within each bubble indicates how many times they must collide before they will pop. Every time a bubble is removed from the level, a new one is added to your queue. Just don't run out of bubbles. To launch a bubble, simply slide your finger on the screen to align your shot and then let go to fire. The game also features online leaderboards. Poppit is available for free today only (8/8). It has a four-star rating, and a total of 10 ratings. Space Loops ($.99 -> Free): A puzzle game with the goal of forming closed loops. You are given random puzzle pieces that can be rotated and moved around the screen before permanently being placed, but you only have a limited amount of time, so you must act fast. Each piece must align with the next to form a closed loop in order to be removed from the board. If you run out of space, the game is over.
