Lost Cities is great. Also, the Traders & Builders expansion to Carcasonne is in review so should be out soon.

The Bard's Tale just went free. Never thought I'd see that. Super excited. Hope it's still free when I get home in a few hours. Sorry for the lack of link, hard to find a straight iTunes link from my phone.

Thanks for the heads up. I bought it on Steam really cheap but Free for my iPad is a nice find.

The screenshots loook very familiar. Was this game on the DS? I know it's not in my itunes store account, but I feel like I've played it before... and I'm guessing it was back in my DS piracy days. Maybe?


I don't know if it was on the DS, I just got it a few years ago for the PC and then this past February when I got my iPhone. The same game goes by a few different names, the most often used one is Link-A-Pix.

Have wanted to play this for awhile. Also happy to see its optimized for the 5. Thanks for posting this!

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

I hate to ask this, seems like it always gets asked when a game goes for free, but how are the IAPs in The Bard's Tale? Seems like there are a few of them, didn't know if they were necessary or just add-on types. Thanks

I'm loving BG, been playing the last 2 hours on the plane and its great. It even plays better than the PC version in my opinion.

Just noticed Mutant Mudds recently came out on iOS. Was an awesome looking 3DS download game I have yet to pick up. Only $0.99.
Think I'll still get it on 3DS to have the physical pad/buttons and 3D effects, but still thought it was worth mentioning.

Thanks for the notice on Bard's Tale and the adult swim game going free!

EDIT: Whoa, Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD just went free!

I bought it for a dollar a long time ago when it was mentioned on here and still haven't played it, haha. Heard great things though.

Holy crap! Thanks. F apple maps. It's so useless.

Is there a way to set google maps as my default mapping application?

I simply switched the (Apple) Maps app out with Google's on my home screen, tucking away Maps in the Utilities folder. Far too many apps have already integrated Maps into their code (I.e. Yelp); as much as I love my iPhone 5, I miss Android's "Open With" feature, so I don't have to be forced to use one app rather than many for a single task.

That's exactly what I was hoping to do. Set all addresses to open with google maps instead of apple maps.

I love that feature on my nexus.

Hey if anyone is a Carcassonne fan or a fan of the boardgames by Reiner Knizia then you should check out Lost Cities while it is on sale for $1.99! Yes it is not that elusive $.99 that so many like to cling to but if you knew anything about the develop behind this game and Carcassonne you'd know they do high quality work and this is the first time any of their work has gone on sale.

Thanks for this! I love Carcassone and will definitely be picking this up.

Sweet, picked it up. I liked the demo on 3DS but didn't want to spend $7.99. It works well on iPad, even without 3D.

There are plenty of mapping apps already and plenty of Google apps. Google got their own maps out after having been pulled from the OS itself. Apple didn't "cave". In any case I am installing....

Here's a trick you can use. If you are in Apple's maps app, you can do the routing with Google Maps (or another app), by choosing transit as the route type. Apple Maps doesn't have transit routing, so it offers up ones you have (or in the app store) that do it. Including Google maps. Pick Google maps and it will open the route in GM (and you can choose the route type then - defaults to car, or maybe it's the last type used).

If you are in the Address book, press and hold on the address and then Copy. Then in Google maps you can paste that into the search field without modification.

Muttant Mudds is kind of cool, but frustrating. Hell, I haven't even finished the first level (after the tutorial). I keep dying and having to go back and the game moves at such a slow pace that I inevitably stop caring before I finish the level. LOL! A lot of people like the game, though.

So Cytus isn't new, but I bought it on sale a long time ago and am just now getting into it. If you're like me and don't like FF Theatrythm because of how easy it is, play this game on hard mode for a good challenge! I'm really enjoying it (Minus the few J-pop songs on there).

I enjoyed Squids, It's fun and levels are pretty big. They recently added a few new levels to the original game.
