App Bargain Bin
August 26, 2015

Achieve world domination, slide pieces to free the key, and experience The Wizard of Oz like never before with today’s collection of apps and games.

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:

Slide Tetromino Premium ($0.99 → Free, 57.9 MB): Collect keys by melting the ice around them in Slide Tetromino. It’s for fans of sliding puzzle games.

Each level includes a single flame, movable pieces, and very little room to operate in. It’s up to you to slide the pieces every which way in order to create a path from the frozen key to the flame. Levels aren’t timed, but your moves will be counted. The game includes a total of 100 levels.

Slide Tetromino Premium is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 8 ratings.

Hatchi – A retro virtual pet ($0.99 → Free, 41.0 MB): Raise your very own Hatchi monster in this retro-inspired game. It’s for anyone who enjoyed the virtual pets that were made popular in the late ‘90s.

You don’t have to be a ‘90s kid to enjoy Hatchi. Your Hatchi monster will need to be hatched, fed, played with, bathed, and generally looked after to ensure it grows up happy and healthy. Hatchi monsters can also be pitted against each other in multiplayer battles. While you’re not tending to your Hatchi, you’re able to play some mini games including Whack a Hatchi and Hatchi Matchi.

Hatchi – A retro virtual pet is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 14070 ratings.

Strategery ($1.99 → Free, 10.4 MB): Achieve world domination in Strategery. It’s for fans of strategy games like Risk.

No one strategy will help you dominate your opponent. You’re going to have to learn to play offensively and defensively in order to survive. The general idea of the game is to expand your territory by attacking nearby enemies. To do so, simply tap any of your countries that has at least two armies within, then tap on a bordering country you wish to occupy. Each army within a country represents a single die. The higher total of dice wins the battle. Ties go to the defender. At the end of each turn you’ll receive bonus armies based on the number of armies in your largest unbroken cluster. Use them wisely, because once you’re out, it’s game over.

Strategery is available for free today only (08/26). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 2673 ratings.

iOrnament: s creative geometry art ($3.99 → Free, 58.4 MB): Create ornamental designs that are both artistically and mathematically captivating with iOrnament. It’s ideal for those who aren’t necessarily artistic but love to create.

Anyone can be an artist with iOrnament. As you draw strokes on the screen, iOrnament repeats them according to rules of symmetry. You’re able to choose from 17 design groups and 10 colors, and customize the parameters of your pen via sliders. The app also includes unlimited undo and redo, the ability to change the symmetry type on the fly, classic ornament samples, zoom, and the ability to share your work via email, Twitter, or Facebook.
