It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and we have an oversized version of our paid apps gone free feature for you today. Games, photo editors, an app to capture baby milestones — we’ve got it all ahead of the holiday. We probably won’t have another set of apps for you tomorrow, so have a great holiday! Enjoy some family time!

This post covers paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. BGR is not affiliated with any developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app anyway, you will be charged by Apple.

Aureus

Normally $1.99.

Lights out! Do you have enough visual memory to beat this new tile matching game?

Memorize the board, match hidden elements, produce gold, upgrade the machine, and fight the ever so quickly increasing pressure. Play online with up to 3 opponents to determine who has the best visual memory or fastest fingers and collect their gold by defeating them!

Take a break from classic memory matching games and see if you can master this new twist!

In Aureus the player is tasked with operating the elements of an electrically charged gold producing machine. The machine operates in the dark, with all elements hidden from the player. Matching similar elements creates an electrical current which briefly illuminates part of the board, disintegrates the matched elements, and produces gold.

Players must rely on their memory to match hidden elements. Speed is likewise essential to master the Aureus which has a strong tendency to overheat. Skilled players have the option of using gold coins earned over time to upgrade the machine. Upgrades can reduce pressure, slow falling elements, or minimize the impact of failed matches amongst other benefits. Once fully upgraded, Aureus provides its fastest game mode with frantic gameplay.

At a basic level, Aureus can be played as a tile matching game with a twist. At the most complex level, Aureus demands a combination of strategy, dexterity and memory. The most efficient way to play is by making a succession of small matches to regroup similar elements, followed by more complex matches to produce large amounts of gold coins. As the pressure increases, the player must master a balance between speed and memorization to optimize the number of coins and the final score.

Aureus features 3 game modes:
* Endurance: the classic mode, with continuous game play until the machine breaks
* Time Trial: the perfect mode for short sessions, with game play limited to 90 seconds
* Online: a multiplayer mode in which players can challenge up to 3 opponents

Ball Alien

Normally $0.99.

Ball Alien is a new game in the ball balance series with amazing cool 3D graphics, animation effects, relaxing background score, clever level complexity, addictive and challenging gameplay.

The game combines elements of arcade and puzzle, where an errant ball is the only character. This story originated in the early 80s with the game Marble Madness and continued by Ballance in 2000s.

STORY

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away… a wonderful journey of the ball continues.

No one knows for certain why and when this story was originated. The nature of the ball remains unknown as well. Perhaps it is the creation of an ancient civilization, wandering through time and space. Or just a figment of imagination.

Whatever it is, you have an opportunity to plunge into his new story, to see the reality by its eyes, to feel another unexplored side of life. And, of course, to get an unforgettable experience.

What are you waiting for? Do it!

The main goal of the game is to pass through all the levels balancing and reach the maximum score. Various elements and obstacles are being introduced as one moves onto new levels, meaning that the complexity and level of puzzle solving required are gradually increasing as the game progresses.

You will find 5 lives to spend and the unique ability to switch material and physical characteristics of the ball turning it light, medium or heavy. However, this feature is to be used only at special transformation points.

FEATURES

• Classic gameplay
• Deep atmosphere
• Modern graphics
• Realistic physics
• Intuitive controls
• No time limits

Ball Alien is accessible both for kids and adults, easy-to-learn and control. Vivid graphics and addictive gameplay contribute to quick relaxation and bright emotions.
