Free Today: Grisly Manor, Geared 2, and More

Due to the insanely competitive App Store marketplace, developers have to try to stand out. One of the best ways is to mark their premium games down to free, for a limited time. Act quickly, and you can score several awesome, full iOS games for free today.

The Secret of Grisly Manor

if you enjoy unsettling first-person adventures like Myst or The 7th Guest, download The Secret of Grisly Manor for free today. In Grisly Manor, you head to your grandpa’s sprawling estate to find out whether or not he’s dead, only to find a series of strange puzzles. The puzzles are nicely varied, and even if the game isn’t very long, it’s still a lot of fun.

Our Score: 3 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: The Secret of Grisly Manor delivers a spooky and entertaining experience right in time for Halloween.

Geared 2!

This head-scratcher of a puzzle game challenges you to rotate a central gear– complete with a little hamster in it– by connecting it to other gears. Special gears will only turn a certain direction, while others are spectral ghost gears that only appear in the sunlight. Plus, Geared 2! contains a full level editor so you can make your own puzzles. Be sure to download this clever puzzler while it’s free.

Our Score: 3 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: The sequel to Geared doesn’t change the original formula at all, and that’s just how we like it.

Trouble in Tin Town

If you ever thought Toy Story would be a good theme for a turn-based strategy game, you should give Trouble in Tin Town a try. This exceedingly clever game combines quirky characters like Abe Lincoln and HP Lovecraft with tough tactical warfare. We think it’s one of the App Store’s better TBS games, so download it if you’ve got a talent for miniaturized war.

Our Score: 3 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: Trouble in Tin Town is a fine single-player, turn-based strategy game.

Chromanoids

Chromanoids from Hothead Games is a space shooter, with a colorful twist. You have to only shoot at bad guys using the correct color, like red bullets for red enemies. While it’s a free download for now, you might still have to pay a little extra for more credits to keep playing, but this is a fun arcade shooter with an added layer of depth.

Our Score: 3 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: Chromanoids is a fresh coat of paint for the space shooter genre.

In Time – The Game

We’re not saying that this movie-based game starring Justin Timberlake is good, we’re just pointing out that it’s currently free. In this auto-running game, you’ll have a series of repetitive tasks, like saving civilians and avoiding bad guys. Movie-based games are rarely free, so if you were curious about this iOS tie-in, now’s your chance to check it out.

Our Score: 1 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: Another lame game thrown out just in time for the movie’¦ with the usual results.
