Today’s apps gone free: Ephemerid, MolaSync, 7 Planets and more

January 5, 2015

Enjoy a handful of games at your own pace and collaborate with colleagues or classmates with today’s AGF collection.

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:

Impossible Dodge – Bad Red Balls ($0.99 → Free, 9.0 MB): An avoidance game that’s not quite impossible, but it sure is difficult! It’s ideal for arcade gamers who enjoy competing for high scores.

You’re put in control of little white square known as DodgeMan. As the balls fall from the top of the screen, you must quickly slide left and right to avoid them. If you get hit by a ball, it’s not the end of the world, you’ll just lose some of your life power. Lose too much and it’s game over. Power-ups will also fall at random, which can be collected by sliding under them. The game includes three modes, and leaderboards via Game Center.

Impossible Dodge – Bad Red Balls is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 23 ratings.

7 Planets ($0.99 → Free, 30.7 MB): Roll wooden balls around within a box in order to get them into their correct rows. It’s for anyone who enjoys logic puzzle games.

This is the type of game that will kick start your brain and get those juices flowing in the morning. All you have to do is swipe to roll the balls and try to get them into their appropriate positions. What makes this task so difficult, however, is that when one ball is moved, all of the balls in that row or column move with it until they are stopped by a wall. Try to restore order in as few moves and as quickly as possible to earn a high score. The game includes three single player modes, and an online multiplayer mode so you can compete against your friends.

7 Planets is available for free today only (01/05). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 5 ratings.

Universal:

ORBB – A casual, relaxing, and challenging ethereal space experience game ($0.99 → Free, 43.4 MB): Jump from planet to planet to clear the stars in this casual game. ORBB is for gamers who hate timers, checkpoints, and limits.

ORBB can be enjoyed by anyone thanks to its relaxing environment and simple gameplay. You’re put in control of a white orb that’s attracted to planets, and you must tap the screen at just the right moment to jump through space and clear all of the stars. The planets’ gravity has an effect on where your white orb goes, as do wormholes and other celestial objects, so time your taps wisely. The game includes five phases, 60 levels, and original music from the creator of Pivvot.

ORBB – A casual, relaxing, and challenging ethereal space experience game is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 130 ratings.

MolaSync – Collaborative cloud notes! Sound recording, Sharp Drawing, Typing, Chatting and collaboration ($5.99 → Free, 57.0 MB): Get in sync with your coworkers or classmates with this collaborative productivity app. It’s great for those who need to share notes and ideas.

With MolaSync your canvases, like your ideas, are infinite. Just put your finger to the screen and start working. You’re able to draw, scribble, and write freely on the canvas, and move around and zoom in using common gestures. You’re also able to insert pre-designed graphics, import photos, record audio, and attach location information. Whatever you do offline will be synced with your team automatically the moment you reconnect. Everything you create can be managed and shared via email or iTunes File Sharing, or you can upload it to Dropbox, Google Drive, or SkyDrive.
