App Bargain Bin
December 2, 2016

Combine blocks to match shades, protect the castle from an evil wizard, and go on an outer space journey 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:

Shades: A Simple Puzzle Game ($1.99 → Free, 42.0 MB): Combine blocks to create and remove different shades in this unique puzzle game. It’s for casual gamers who want a zen-like puzzle experience.

We love games like Shades. It’s simple on the surface, but rather difficult once you get going. The idea is to drag the falling blocks into position in order to create rows of the same color, which will remove them from the board. Things really get interesting when you stack blocks of the same color, as they will get darker in shade. This gameplay element creates some sticky situations, but also allows you to create cascading combos. Shades includes four color schemes to choose from.

Shades: A Simple Puzzle Game is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 7543 ratings.
