Freebie Friday – 19th April 2013

April 19th, 2013 by

Ahhh thank God it’s pay day again… Wait what?! All my money has gone on boring bills? How the hell am I gonna get my game on?

If this sounds like you then fear not as the following list of games all come with the best price around; absolutely free.

The first few games I have found are available through Google Play and will run on most Android devices.


100 Floors Escape

First up is one of the most addictive “Room Escape” puzzle game for Android. Solve the enigmas and open the door to escape from the collapsing skyscraper. I am not including any trailers or screenshots for this title as all that I have seen give away a solution to at least one puzzle.

Utilising every aspect of a handheld device you will drag, swipe, tilt, tap and shake your way through each puzzle until the solution dawns on you.  Each level is a unique puzzle in itself, however some of them are adaptions on previous levels.

Each time you solve a puzzle, it opens the lift door allowing you to travel a single storey higher and progress to your eventual goal of escaping the building.

Perfect for whiling away journeys and toilet time I highly recommend 100 floors escape.


What do you want to do in your game today? Run, jump, slide from ropes and dodge rocks! Not enough? Avoid swinging hammers and jump over moving ice blocks. Avoid getting burned and jump between walls to collect coins and medallions. Break stone blocks and activate platforms before you fall into fog.

Manuganu is a 3D side- scroller running game, in which you control the boy “Manuganu”. Unlike other usual running games, Manuganu introduces the “Halt feature” allowing you to stop dead in order to avoid swinging rocks, hammers, flames and other enemies with the right timing. You also have the ability to switch from “running” mode to “rope climbing” mode when required. But this mode has its own challenges.

Although there are only 30 levels they do need to be completing many times utilising alternate paths in order to achieve the full three stars on each level. This certainly extends the life of the game and encourages a “just one more go” mentality.

R.I.P. Rally

How can I explain R.I.P. Rally? Well if during the latest Zombie Apocalypse, Twisted Metal and Smash TV had a bastard lovechild, and in order to ensure it got bullied at school they named it Freemium then you would pretty much have R.I.P. Rally.

R.I.P. Rally see you mowing down hordes of the undead in a fully customisable vehicle as you progress from wave to wave. As always wiping out zombies is satisfying and once you have been defeated you can spend your hard earned coins on upgrading your vehicle in order to have another go in the hope of progressing that little bit further this time.

There is a freemium aspect and you can purchase in game currency one of two ways. Firstly, the way we all hate and detest here on Freebie Friday – Cold Hard Cash. The second is by watching ads, and signing up for surveys in exchange for a set number of coins. Either way is not required to progress and enjoy R.I.P Rally albeit at a much slower pace.

Super Kiwi Castle Run

Hear ye, hear ye, good people of the realm: Super Kiwi Castle Run is the ultimate medieval adventure game!

Similar to Punch Quest, Super Kiwi Castle Run! is a endless runner  that adds fighting and battles into the mix. Run as far and for as long as you can, overcoming the various guards, witches and dragons that get in your way.

Throughout your run, you will unlock heroes each with their own special ability. The Knight has the power to jump, while the Wizard flies and the Archer glides through the air. Explore all the aspects of the castle, from the drawbridge to the castle tower and don’t forget you will be passing through the dungeons. You can purchase potions and boosts or just restyle your character before embarking on each run.

With Facebook connectivity to share “quests” and challenges whilst increasing your rewards with the more people you connect with. There is also weekly tournaments and leaderboards for endless battles of one-upmanship

I hope you find something you like here and even if it doesn’t scratch that gaming itch then at least none of them have made your wallet any lighter. Feel free to leave some comments to let others know how you got on with them.
