Puzzle fans rejoice. Apple has just selected the newest title to go free as the latest App of the Week. This weeks selection is Back to Bed. Its usually $3.99 but will be available to download for free for the next seven days.
The game originally landed back in August 2014 and is a 3-D puzzler set in a unique and artistic dream world where players are tasked with guiding Bob the sleepwalker back to bed. The beautiful imagery is obviously inspired by M.C. Escher.
In our original review, Christine Chan was fascinated with the imagery, calling it a darker, nightmarish version of Monument Valley. But she was somewhat disappointed with the actual gameplay:
While the levels may seem similar and predictable, you will still be surprised with the unexpected. However, I was expecting a lot more from the game, especially since it was hyped up. I was disappointed that there is no penalty for having Bob die, because he will just come right back, and there is no point or reward system in place. This means little replay value, aside from the Nightmare mode and the 20 achievements you can obtain in Game Center.
Back to Bed is universal and designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded on the App Store now. While I didnt get around to playing the game when it was first released, Im looking forward to checking it out if just to take a look at the visual eye candy.
And as always, if youre looking for new free apps, take a look at our daily Apps Gone Free section. Todays list includes a childrens game, reference app, and more.
