We gave Hidden Variable Studios’ Bag It! just about the highest possible recommendation for its gameplay variety and injection of physics into the familiar Tetris-style puzzle formula. Last week the game received a major content update, introducing a new explosive grocery item, 16 levels spread across its gameplay modes, 25 achievements and three endless modes — so we couldn’t pass up the chance to do a giveaway when Hidden Variable stopped in with an offer of three promo codes for the iPhone version. Check out our interview with this talented studio while you await the contest results.
And here’s the rest of this week’s prize bag:
Dragon Evolution: If you’ve tired of endless runners for their lack of depth but still want the rush of an accessible and strategic high score challenge, this title from Nob Studio is sure to please. The devs plopped a uber-generous 10(!) codes into our inbox for you all this week, so there will be plenty of evolving dragons to go around once this contest ends.
Air Mail: Chillingo once again proves they have a knack for choosing great studios to publish! You’d think mail delivery would be a hard experience to base a game on but N-fusion Interactive’s Steampunkish adventure will prove you wrong judging from all the critical and user acclaim it’s received at release. We’re gifting one copy to a lucky reader, who can look forward to three game modes including a story campaign and content expansions down the road.
Pastry Panic: Underground Pixel’s second foray into the App Store hit the sweet spot for us last week with its charming, stretchy-tongued hero. It’s got a tasty challenge, two gameplay modes to burn through and pixelated hats, making it a perfect little morsel for any casual gamer who loves the retro aesthetic. Have a copy on us!
Defender Chronicles II: Last week Menara Games returned with the sequel to its wildly popular Defender Chronicles: Legend of the Desert King and Tower Defense fans are already raving! This one probably needs no introduction, but just in case: the Defender Chronicles formula has you repelling enemy hordes from vast vertical environments, lending it a much different visual style than your average genre title. Throw in lots of RPG mechanics and a comic book story and it’s no wonder Menara and their publishers have staked out solid ground on the App Store. We’re gifting one copy a week from today!
B) Re-tweet this post as many times as possible all this week! (or share it on Facebook, give the post a quick +1 etc). Bonus points for those of you who ‘like’ our Facebook fan page too!
C) Let us know you’ve completed the above steps by dropping a quick message in the comments section below.
