As stated in the newly published App Store Editors' Notes for the game:
Each week, we select a great app and bring it to you, for free, as our App of the Week. (In-App Purchases sold separately.) Icycle delightfully infuses dire circumstances with goofy humor as you pedal and tumble through treacherous landscapes. The timing challenges and inventive stages are terrific, and excellent sound and visuals make this game an unforgettable experience.
As explained in our largely positive original review of the game, Icycle is a puzzling platformer that has you helping a dazed and confused dude survive a “post-apocalyptic frozen wonderland” by riding a tiny bicycle in the nude. Brrr!

Icycle has been priced at $2.99 since its release in November last year — until recently, that is, as it has gone free for the first time ever as Apple's App of the Week, no less.
Developed by Damp Gnat, Icycle is published by Electronic Arts' third-party game publishing subsidiary, Chillingo.
Chillingo released quite a number of iOS games this year, beginning with the launch of Feed Me Oil 2 on the first day of the year and ending with the slam dunk of The Official NBA Quiz last month. And for the new year, it's already set to publish several notable titles including Raids of Glory, Hero Pop, The Hardest Flight, and Mech.
