Didn’t get enough paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free in yesterday’s roundup? Well don’t worry because we’ve got eight fresh apps for you to check out on Tuesday. They’re all free for a limited time only, so grab them quickly while you still can. You’ll also find a few remaining freebies in Monday’s post if you missed that one.

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. Subscribe to our feed to be notified as soon as these posts are published, and you’ll avoid missing the sales we cover.

What the Press Are Saying:

Penny Arcade Report (Ben Kuchera)
If you’re a fan of pinball, Star Wars, or fun things, this is pretty much a must-purchase.

As a complete package, Star Wars Pinball delivers the kind of arcade experience that makes you crave just one more game, constantly chasing to surpass your own score for the sheer satisfaction of it.

Desctructoid – 9.5/10
Each table is chock full of beautiful art, character cameos, and tracks pulled straight from the films’ soundtracks. These first three tables are a bold and equally stellar introduction to Star Wars Pinball, and they’ll keep you more than busy until Zen Studios drops the next batch.

Game Informer – 8.5/10
You don’t need to be a Star Wars fan to recognize the creativity Zen has brought to the new tables. The company continues to include more fantasy elements in its designs.

“Star Wars fans will certainly enjoy the visual treat this game offers. That, combined with the fun gameplay make this a must have. It is impressive. Most impressive.
Jump into hyperspace to check it out in the App Store.”
