MiniLegend: Epic Reign ($39.99 → Free, 53.5 MB): This new League of Legends-type game built for iOS is giving away a whopping $40 worth of in-app currency through the weekend. We’re skeptical of this amount total, but nonetheless there’s lots of free stuff! It’s great for anyone who likes online multiplayer card battle games.

MiniLegend has a unique mix of gameplay elements that set it apart from the rest of the games in the genre. As the summoner, you must select your main hero to go into battle with. Then put together the rest of your deck and create your battle formation. You’re able to watch the battle play out, and when victory is yours, utilize your experience points by upgrading your characters and equipment. If you tire of battling monsters in dungeons, jump into the player-versus-player arenas and see how your deck stacks up against the rest.

This is our favorite version of Gin Rummy because you’re able to play turn-based games online at your own pace. The game offers three ways to play: Gin Rummy, Straight, and Oklahoma. You’re able to hone your skills against three levels of AI, and then head online to show the rest of the world your card magic.

Sago Mini Monsters allows your kid’s creative side to shine. They get to start off by painting the face of a colorful monster. It will then grow horns, eyes, and a mouth. Just tap and drag each piece to switch it out with another. The monster can be fed with the food that floats to the top of the goo from which it came. Once the monster has had its fill it will need its teeth brushed. Other objects will also randomly float to the top of the goo, which can be applied to the monster before it gets its photo taken.
