Today’s apps gone free: Beluga, Ettetetta, World of Gibbets and more

November 5, 2014

Share your workload with others with Beluga. We also have a minimalist puzzle game to enjoy, and a gruesome arcade game from FDG.

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.

iPhone:

Beluga: Shared Tasks. ($1.99 → Free, 8.7 MB): Share your workload with Beluga. It’s great for those who need or want to share tasks with a group.

Beluga makes task sharing a painless process. All you have to do is create a group and populate it with tasks. You’re then able to invite others to see the tasks, or you can pitch a task to someone else from your personal list with a right to left swipe. If you perform the latter, they’ll receive a push notification. You’ll also receive a push if someone completes a task you pitched.

Beluga: Shared Tasks. is available for free today only (11/05). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 9 ratings.

Trapper – Capture Your Ideas ($0.99 → Free, 979.4 KB): Capture ideas and develop narratives with Trapper. It’s perfect for those brief moments of inspiration.

Trapper is all about storytelling. The concept is to capture your ideas, whether they are quotes you’ve heard, jokes you’ve told, or setups for scenes, and record them. Then create a narrative to give your captured ideas a home. Within the narratives section you’re able to build your story by adding new ideas, reorganizing them, and editing them as needed. Your narratives can be shared as editable text documents via email, or you can present them from within the app.

Trapper – Capture Your Ideas is available for free today only (11/05). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

Universal:

World of Gibbets ($0.99 → Free, 46.2 MB): Grab your bow and arrow and shoot ropes to become a hero in this rather gruesome arcade game. It’s for anyone who enjoyed the original hit Flash game.

You need a steady hand and clear conscience to succeed in World of Gibbets. Your job is to save the hanging people from certain death by cutting their ropes with your arrow. You’ll have to move quickly since they will run out of air at some point. Just try not to hit the people with your arrow. That’ll create a bit of a mess. The game includes 140 levels, and a handful of mini-games.

World of Gibbets is available for free today only (11/05). It has a 5-star rating with a total of 18 ratings.

Ettetetta ($0.99 → Free, 7.2 MB): This minimalist puzzle game will keep you coming back for more. It’s for puzzle fans who are looking for something a little different.

Ettetetta is easy to learn but difficult to master. As the blue and red squares stream down the left side of the screen, it’s up to you to gather the rest into lines and match them with the same color. You’re able to do so with a right to left swipe. Any squares that haven’t been collected within the lines will fall into them as long as they match. Try to create lines that gather as many squares as possible to keep your session going.

Ettetetta is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 7 ratings.

PAC-MAN Friends ($3.99 → Free, 84.5 MB): Help PAC-MAN rescue his friends from the Ghosts’ Castle in this new take on an old classic. It’s perfect for anyone who loved PAC-MAN.

The best thing about PAC-MAN Friends is the many different ways you can control the iconic yellow pellet chopper. You’re able to utilize tilt controls, on-screen directional buttons, or an on-screen joystick to navigate PAC-MAN through challenging mazes. Along the way you’ll be able to unlock new friends whose powers will help you blaze through each maze. The game includes 95 stages, nine friends to unlock, and daily rewards.

PAC-MAN Friends is available for free today only (11/05). It has a 3-star rating with a total of 21 ratings.
