Free Today: Icebreaker Hockey, Ant Raid, and More

Apple’s App Store is a billion-dollar marketplace, but you don’t have to spend even one dollar to download these games for free today. And these aren’t those string-you-along kind of freemium games– below are five full games that have been marked down to free for a limited time.

Icebreaker Hockey

In this arcade-style hockey game, you control a lone player without a team, trying to skate towards the goal. As you line up to make a shot, the other team will try to knock you down, which causes you to lose points. Icebreaker Hockey isn’t a full-on hockey sim, but it distills the sport down to its basics, making it a fun pick-up, especially for today’s download price of free.

Our Score: 3 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: Icebreaker Hockey will knock you on your butt, but you’ll get right back up and keep playing.

Ant Raid

Sometimes we wonder how a real-time strategy game can work on such a small device like the iPhone. Ant Raid offers an ingenious solution: Just shrink the armies down to ant sizes, too. You can command your ant army to attack other bugs and defend your anthill, and use your finger to squish bugs when you’ve powered up. This is still one of our favorite casual strategy games on iOS, so give it a download.

Our Score: 4 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: A quirky and fun take on real-time strategy games, with lots of character and creative elements.

Feed That Dragon

Miniclip created one of our favorite physics puzzlers, Fragger, but Feed That Dragon isn’t quite as much fun. However, it is free today. In this game, you have to catapult a dragon’s dinner into his mouth, bouncing it off of obstacles and avoiding traps. You can also pay extra to skip around the levels, which helps explain why the developers can afford to give you the rest of the game for free.

Our Score: 2 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: A lackluster physics puzzle game in a genre that’s not short on excellent options.

Ancient War

Free this week to mark the release of the developer’s newest game, DevilDark, Ancient War is a castle defense game with primitive warriors. Using the game’s currency, meat, you have to summon cavemen with stone axes to destroy your enemy’s totem pole. Ancient War also has online multiplayer, and since it’s free this week, this is a good time to find an opponent quickly.

Our Score: 3 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: This simple yet smart 2D RTS is great fun in quick sessions

Mad Chef/ Food Ninja

Mad Chef is one of those games that’s not to be missed, and even with a new name, that’s still the case. For Mad Chef version 2.0, the name has been changed to Food Ninja and the download price is free. In this game, you open a restaurant and throw knives at ingredients to make food. The better you do, the more customers you’ll get, until you’re expanding across town.

Our Score: 3 out of 4

Our Bottom Line: Mad Chef is a great game for fun, all-ages gameplay which is easy to pick up and play in short bursts, yet has a longer (rat?) tail behind that, lending itself to a longer-term experience as well.
