iOS Apps Gone Free: Friendle, Current, Meow Maze, And More

January 7, 2012

Challenge your friends to seven classic turn-based games all from within Candywriter's wonderful board game app, Friendle. We also have a game that takes the orb shooter genre and gives it a little twist, and a game where you must rescue kittens lost in a maze.

All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.

The game includes 56 procedurally generated levels, two modes, three difficulty levels, and three-star ratings for each level.

Meow Maze ($1.99 -> Free, 12.2 MB): Guide your character through the randomly generated mazes in order to collect the lost kittens and bring them back to their mother. Each maze has a target number of kittens to collect, but the more you collect before time expires, the higher the amount of coins you'll earn. Coins can be used to unlock new levels, characters, and items.

($2.99 -> Free, 176.9 MB): Earth is under attack from a powerful alien race, and as the last line of defense it's up to you to deploy your arsenal of powerful weapons to defend humanity in this twist on the tower defense genre.
