August 6, 2014

Spice up your writing with today’s AppBump featured app, WriteRight. This is the first time ever WriteRight has been offered for free, so make sure to take advantage of this opportunity while you can!

We also have an app that allows you to make your own music by lighting up colored squares, and a genre-mashing puzzle game.

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.

Universal:

Cavesweeper ($1.99 → Free, 17.7 MB): Minesweeper meets dungeon crawling in this fantastic puzzle game.

You must fight your way through the deadly cavern by solving Minesweeper-like puzzles. Just tap on the colored bags at the bottom of the screen to use your red and green magic. Regular Minesweeper rules apply here, but if you’re a little rusty, just follow along with the tutorial. Try to string together combos by avoiding mistakes to take down your enemies as quickly as possible. Your fallen enemies will drop loot as well, allowing you to increase your hit points and earn coins even faster. The game also includes loads of quests to complete, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center. Cavesweeper is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 11 ratings.

Five-O Deluxe ($1.99 → Free, 7.5 MB): A board game that plays much like Scrabble, only there are numbers instead of letters.

The object of the game is to take turns with your opponent creating sequences of tiles that add up to multiples of five. Your score is based on all of the number tiles in each sequence you created or added to during a turn. No single sequence can be longer than five tiles, however. The game includes single and multiplayer modes, stat tracking, and a complete set of rules. Five-O Deluxe is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 2326 ratings.

Word Triangle ($1.99 → Free, 4.5 MB): If you enjoy word puzzles, you're going to love this casual game.

Complete the Word Triangle by utilizing clues to fill in the missing letters. You'll want to start from the top and work your way down since each row of words includes letters from the previous row. The game includes 250 puzzles, and two themes. Word Triangle is available for free for a limited time. It has a 3.5-star rating with a total of 53 ratings.

Order & Chaos© Online ($6.99 → Free, 1.6 GB): Explore an epic fantasy world with thousands of players from across the globe in this MMORPG from Gameloft.

WriteRight: enjoy writing ($2.99 → Free, 101.0 MB): Spice up your writing with this handy text editor.

You’ll see the progress bar at the bottom of the screen start to move, and when it hits the end it will start over again. Each square is a sound of its own, and each different color is a group of sounds, so just tap more squares to add complexity to your loop. The app includes two sound sets to choose from, and a loop grid of 36 squares. Polyphonic - Make Music is available for free today only (08/06). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 165 ratings.
