Can't believe Bard's Tale went free! I would have bitten at $.99 or even $1.99. I'm glad I check this thread daily for these updates. Never got around to wishlisting it.

So excited Google Maps is back. While I don't mind Apple Maps, it's not THAT bad, I do miss the ability to skip ahead to familiarize yourself with where you're going. I know how to get to the freeway from my house.

Not a game, but Google Maps app is out. I tried it and it's good, with one exception being that, unless I'm missing something, it bizarrely does not include integration of the address book. You can see your own home and work addresses, but can't see anything else in the address book. Why? Otherwise it's well designed and the turn-by-turn navigation works great. Good voice quality too. I'll be using it for sure.

Does anybody here play Battle Cats? It's a cool TD game. It's a great time waster and the leveling up makes it horribly addicting. You can enter this code g8tp0 in the main menu once you reach level 7 for free xp which you can use to upgrade your stuff. I only need 10 invites for a free character unlock so I'll delete my code once I get it.

Is there an app that will list my most-used or favorite apps and let me launch them?

Doubt it since apps are heavily sandboxed. The only time I've even seen an app be able to launch another one is when a file has the "open with" option. But that isn't apps talking to each other; the various apps simply subscribe with the os for certain file types.

Minigore 2: Zombies (Universal) just came out last week and is already on sale for $0.99 until December 31st.

No iPad 1 support :(

Ascension going free is nice but you're going to want the expansions at some point. It's fully featured without them though. The expansions have been on sale in the past.

Ascension and Reiner Knizia's Samurai are the two best async multiplayer games on Iphone. Lost Cities in third place.

Battleline might have been a contender had it had a better implementation. It is a better game than Lost Cities in most ways but LC's app is better designed, prettier, and sexier.

Don't get me wrong, Ascension is far from the best card game you'll ever play but Playdek's masterful app design and the game's perfect balance of depth and turn brevity means it is easy to get into or come back to on down the line. Many others like Nightfall and Summoner Wars are denser and more obtuse.

Really, in a general sense, I use Boardgamegeeks for my Iphone gaming news more than anything else. "Traditional" games have been a wasteland on Iphone with few exceptions. But board and card games vs. AI or online have been some of the most consistent fun I've had. And I don't mean your dice throwing monopoly crap. Real games of skill and chance like Battleline, Catan, other Eurogames, etc.

The You Don't Know Jack game is flawless. Was worried it would be too long but it's only 5 questions instead of the normal 20. So much fun!

I cannot find this listed on appshopper.com nor does it show up when I search it on the App Store BUT EA finally released a free version of Scraable HD for iPad. The only link I have is as follows:

I do not know what the difference between the pay version and the free version is but if somebody could elaborate on that then that would be nice.

HIGHLY recommend picking this up if you like iOS strategy card games of any sort. Hours of excellent game play, easily my #1 played game since getting an iPhone last year. The expansions are cheap and definitely worth buying but you don't need them to enjoy the game.

Heroes of Order & Chaos is free, and also fantastic.

This is the MOBO (League of Legends genre) not the MMORPG called Order & Chaos (Same developer and universe though) It's set up very similar to League of Legends on PC. 3 vs 3 or 5 vs 5 co-op or free for all on two different maps. They rotate 5-7 Free heroes a week, and I believe their is 40 so far.

Side note: The Order & Chaos MMORPG no longer has a subscription, before you had to subscribe for 1,3,6 months.

I suppose I'll pick up Bad Piggies iPad to see what it's like. At least it's different from Angry Birds.

Crunch,

I'm not an angry birds fan. The first one I managed to get entirely through was Angry Birds Star Wars (and that was because I stubbornly wanted to unlock the path of the jedi without paying for it).

Bad Piggies is funner than hell... but every time I come up with something, it's a case of one-ups-manship, if that makes sense.

I liked the original Angry Birds a lot, actually. I just got burnt out on the formula long before they gave up on it. Rather, they haven't given up on it yet!

Wimp: Who Stole My Pants? HD (universal) has dropped to free:

http://appshopper.co...e-my-panties-hd

Pretty good game and worth downloading.

I've been consistently playing Ascension for months. I love this game. Anyone that likes CCGs should definitely go for it.

Just to be clear, Ascension is *not* a CCG (Collectable Card Game). It's a deck builder. I am not a fan of CCGs, but I love Ascension, Dominion, etc. In Deck Building games everyone is playing from the same main deck and builds their own deck from that supply as the game proceeds by "buying" available cards with in-game currency. The currency in Ascension are "runes" and they are from cards you have in your deck.

I just found out that the paid version of Air Hockey is now free, which means no ads, http://appshopper.com/games/air-hockey

If you like the Air Hockey game then there is no reason not to grab the paid version while it is free.

It's free, but from what I can see of the in-app purchases it looks freeium.

Correct re: the CCG point, in that there is no pre-game deck construction in Ascension. However, people that love MTG-style card games will almost certainly also enjoy Ascension, and should give it a try. Especially for free!

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.
