Disclaimer: All prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. iPhone: N.Y. Zombies ($.99 -> Free): An on-rails zombie shooter set in New York.

You are given random puzzle pieces that can be rotated and moved around before permanently being placed, but you only have a limited amount of time to do so.

Universal: iStalin: Create Your Communist Poster ($1.99 -> Free): A rather goofy app that allows you to create your own communist poster.
