Here in Australia we’ve just started a long weekend. The sun is shining and the temperature is crisp. But wherever you are, what better way is there to spend a weekend than with your feet up, iPad in one hand and refreshing beverage in the other? To top it off, a number of pretty sweet iOS games have just been given deep discounts on the App Store. Times are good!
Without doubt, the pick of the bunch this weekend is the stealth extraordinaire, République, which has gone free. We reviewed République in Episode 2 of Grab It, calling it a stunning success that delivers on gameplay and story. We also caught up with Ryan Payton – the founder of the studio Camouflaj behind this excellent game – who has previously worked on the Halo series. You can read the full making of feature in our free Episode 1. Before you leave the App Store, be sure to also spare a thought for the visually stunning platformer Leo’s Fortune and the equally stunning, but much darker, Limbo.
