Now that we’re all done laughing about “covfefe,” it’s time to get back to our regularly scheduled programming and tell you about a bunch of paid apps that you can download for free for a limited time. If you’re quick, you might be able to download some of yesterday’s free apps as well.
These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.
Petri the Jolly Penguin needs your guidance to complete each level.
Dive and jump around, paint cubes, run away from enemies, collect candy, hunt for fish and squids, avoid traps and obstacles, be quick! Beware of falling cubes!
* Play with a single finger. Swipe diagonally in any direction needed. Anywhere on the screen. Make a longer swipe for longer jumps.
* Alternatively touch any neighboring cube to make Petri jump towards it. Touch longer or harder a cube in any four directions to jump over multiple cubes and obstacles.
* Play single-screen multiplayer with a friend. Team up against sharks, orcas, yetis and snakes, or go against each other to see who would survive longer and paint more cubes.
* Get rid of enemies – freeze or drown them by using the snowflake and sun bonuses.
* Top up your lives by trading 10 of your hard-earned gold stars for a Life Bonus that you need to catch.
* Ran out of lives? No problem, just share your achievement and continue from where you left off.
* Start at Easy Skill, the game will increase your difficulty level once you finish a full round of levels.
Each level completes when all tower cubes are painted.
3 gold stars are granted for each level if:
– the level is complete within the time limit
– no candy is left uneaten on the tower
– no player casualty during the level
Enemies are not born equal. Some are plain stupid, others are really smart and nasty. Use the helicopters to get rid of the worst ones – the snakes. They would only die while trying to catch you in the air…
Single-Screen Multiplayer Modes:
Team Play – Help each other paint the tower as fast as possible with as little damage as you can!
DeathMatch – Last man standing wins. Make sure to survive longer but keep an eye on the painted cube count!
Paint Mania – Let the best painter win! The more painted cubes, the better!
Time Attack – Level completes only when the time is up. Repaint as many opponent cubes as possible!
All multiplayer modes – DON’T overload cubes – landslides!

Gravtrav is a chill, puzzle based, physics game set in deep space. Ride the gravity of the planets and stars as you travel from one wormhole to the next. The better you know your physics the less fuel you’ll need. Your score is always fuel collected minus fuel used; so get those physics right and work that gravity! Fuel is found in nebulae but sometimes it’s out of the way. Figure out how to use gravity to slingshot you back on course.
Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements.
Make your way through 40 levels in your choice of two play modes…
Chill Mode: Delivers a relaxed experience where you’ll start every level with enough fuel to get the job done.
Advanced Mode: Puts your physics skills to the test by challenging you with an element of fuel management. The only fuel you have is what you brought with you from the previous galaxy. At some point you may need to go back and improve a previous level to travel further into the universe.
