iPod freebie of the day
I haven't done one of these for a while – because I figure most of you are bright enough to work out how to follow the iPod freebie sites for yourselves – but this pic is too nice not to use.
Normally £2.99 but free for today, Twin Blades is a very cute Final Fight/Streets Of Rage derivative with gorgeous graphics and guts and gore a-go-go.
It's not the most sophisticated game in the world – it's strictly single-plane, so actually more of a Kung Fu Master/Joe Blade derivative, really – but it controls beautifully, there are story and survival modes, countless zombies and lots of weapons to dispatch them with, and a recent update has added a hefty amount of new content too.
Frankly it's worth picking up for free even if you just want to look at the pretty pictures, but it's a very likeable little game too, with a 4-star review average from people who paid money for it. So, y'know, why wouldn't you?
Remember, if you don’t have an iPhone or iPod Touch yet with which to enjoy the now-est gaming of the modern zeitgeist, you can still grab the games anyway with iTunes while they’re free, and upload them to your iPod when you get one.
And if you’re ready to join in the fun, you can do it at a giveaway price by subscribing to WoS, where subscribers learn how to pick up a brand-new 32GB 3rd-gen iPod Touch for just £6 – no strings, no contracts, no referrals, no getting other people do do anything, just a fun bit of exploiting capitalism for half-an-hour’s effort.
