We’ve got a very specific focus this week: Four free iOS games you can find in the App Store. Three of them are puzzle games. And, best of all, they each cost nada. Save a few bucks and grab these deals before they go back up in price.
Four free iOS games
Perloo for iPhone or iPad for free
The App Store describes Perloo as “an excruciatingly hard puzzle game” that “plays with physics, quantum mechanics, philosophy, optics and perception.” Perhaps more importantly, the user reviews say Perloo “very fun.”
Even if this game doesn’t propel you to another astral plane, it should be good for an hour or two of fun. Also, several reviews note that the game begins with an unusually long black screen, so don’t give up too soon. Perloo is discounted from $1.
Quell+ for iPhone and iPad for free
Need a double dose of puzzles? With more than 80 levels of logic, Quell+ will keep you entertained for hours. Plus, the game promises to be “soothing, not frustrating.”
Usually a buck, Quell+ is available in 12 languages, and can be synced on all your iOS devices.
A Day in the Woods for iPhone and iPad for free
How about … another puzzle game? Less of a mind-bender than the previous offerings, A Day in the Woods is meant for younger puzzlers. Play the game and “you will guide Little Red Riding Hood through an enchanted forest to her grandmother’s house,” according to the App Store.
Apparently, in A Day in the Woods there’s some drama before Red even arrives. The game is currently discounted from $2.
Space Trek for iPhone or iPad for free
Space Trek? Really? Who are the main characters, Captain Clark and Doctor Spot? Anyway, it’s a shooter game that normally costs $3 and has nothing to do with the similarly named TV series. Steer a spaceship, blow up some aliens, and try not to wonder why you never encounter any Klingons..
