Head out to sea on a nightmarish adventure, enjoy your favorite podcasts, and bring creatures to life 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.

iPhone:

The Cursed Ship, Collector’s Edition (Full) ($4.99 → Free, 426.7 MB): Head out to sea to reveal the secrets of the Cursed Ship. It’s for fans of hidden object adventure games.

The Ondine, the biggest and most luxurious cruise ship ever created, has been lost at sea during its maiden voyage. As part of the Trident Corporation, it’s up to you to locate the ship and recover what remains. During your own voyage, however, you lose all forms of communication and somehow wind up in two parallel worlds via a mysterious mirror. Search every deck of the massive ship for clues and solve puzzles to escape this nightmare.

The Cursed Ship, Collector’s Edition (Full) is available for free today only (11/24). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 19 ratings.

Castaway – Podcast Player ($2.99 → Free, 5.6 MB): Play and manage your podcasts with ease with Castaway. It’s for those who want a podcast app that’s clean and simple.

Castaway is for the eclectic podcast listener. It doesn’t make you commit to an entire podcast series, allowing you to listen to any one in the directory without subscribing. Of course, you can subscribe to your favorites, and either listen immediately by streaming them or download them for later listening. Podcasts refresh in the background and can be downloaded automatically, ensuring you’ll always have the latest and greatest content.

Castaway – Podcast Player is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 10 ratings.

Universal:

ZooKazam ($0.99 → Free, 72.7 MB): A fun educational app that will bring creatures to life on your iDevice. It’s great for children, teachers, parents, and students.

You must first print out one of the targets from the ZooKazam website, which can be accessed from the app itself. Then place it in your environment and tap on an animal to select it. When you point your iDevice’s camera at the printed target, an animal will come to life in 3-D. The app includes more than 40 creatures to choose from with detailed descriptions and fun facts for each one.

ZooKazam is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 56 ratings.

Aureus ($0.99 → Free, 34.3 MB): Match elements to produce gold in Aureus. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to work on their memorization skills.

Take a good look at the board while it is lit up, because the lights will go out! You must then match elements to create electrical currents that will briefly illuminate the board, disintegrate the elements, and turn them into gold. While the board is briefly illuminated from creating a match, you will have another chance at seeing where elements are located and how they’re aligned. If you wind up not getting a good enough look, you can use a hint. The game includes three modes, loads of ways to upgrade your gold producing machine, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Aureus is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 32 ratings.

iPad:
