An interactive (and unorthodox) take on the classic Little Red Riding Hood story is amongst the free apps highlighted today by Apple N’ Apps.
Aside from the Little Dead Riding Hood “storybook,” other zero-cost offerings include Walking for Weight Loss Pro (a fitness app), nexus money (a finance manager), and BusyBox (a time-tracking app). Grab them while you can.
Overnight action phenomenon Mr Jump is burning up the App Store, but is noticeably absent from Google Play. That may change in the future. Gamezebo’s Jim Squires reached out to developer 1button to ask about the possibility of an Android release for the Mister, and the studio admitted an Android adaptation is probably forthcoming.
“We are not currently working on the Android version of Mr Jump, but we will probably have to do it soon. As we only work with native SDKs, it may take some time.”
The simple-looking yet hyper-challenging platformer Mr Jump has rocketed up the charts on the App Store, with 6 million downloads and counting. It’s a free game, with occasional ads and a few in-app purchase options. Touch Arcade spoke with the three-person team behind the app about their success, their inspiration, and where they’ll go from here.
“Most of our apps are puzzle games,” says Thomas. “With Mr Jump we wanted to show that we were capable of doing something different: more action oriented and ‘less simple’ graphically. But even if Mr Jump is a success it doesn’t mean we will stop making small and passionate puzzle games in the future. So our next game might be a puzzle game.”

Do you like auto-running platformers? Do you like Ancient Egyptian art? If so, you’ll want to check out this cool-looking game. It kind of looks like the recent PlayStation 4 game Apotheon, but Egyptian rather than Greek, and auto-running rather than directly controlled. You can download it here for $1.99.
